Eco Warriors
Greenpeace movement
-By Rani Iyer

All around the world, the loss of forests and the greenery to encroaching farmlands, and housing needs are of concern. Yet, halting the onslaught on the environment that forms the very basis of our lives is a difficult thought. In many poor nations, the line between starvation and conservation is thin. The Earth is fragile and hurts everyone, including man, when we go on exploiting and modifying it.
The Greenpeace movement was born as a voice of the fragile earth. The movement is most famous for its activism, where volunteers visit sites of activities that are harmful to the earth or threaten the life of a group to extinction. In 1971, volunteers sailed out on a small boat to Amchitka in Alaska where they witnessed the underground nuclear testing.

In a series of protests in 1980s when they campaigned successfully against International whaling, volunteers went out on boats in the high seas and put themselves between the harpoon and the whale.
The ship that carries the volunteers to the seas on these missions is known as 'Rainbow warrior.' The name is derived from a Cree American- Indian legend. The legend is set at a time when man's greed made the earth sick. There were more exploiters than protectors. At that time, a band of people known as 'the warriors of the rainbow' would raise to defend her.
Greenpeace operates all around the world. It is a powerful voice against the threat to the planet and strives to protect biodiversity and environment. Over the last few decades the Greenpeace movement has campaigned for stopping climate change, protecting ancient forests, to stop whaling, saving the oceans, eliminate toxic chemicals, stop the threat of a nuclear holocaust, and to encourage sustainable trade. They have also campaigned against genetic engineering.
What sets Greenpeace apart from the other groups? It is the dedication of its volunteers who raise funds and take part in the activities that alter the course of destruction, aiding in conservation.
No contribution or effort is small in aiding conservation. Individuals and groups have shown it to us again and again in different times, countries and circumstances. Dedication by individuals or groups can bring about remarkable differences in the conservation history of an area. Plant a tree or join the effort, there are many ways to do this!

dear rainbow warriors /GreenPeace I want to sing a praise song for you and your work. thank you for caring. I am a novelist and poet ( and PhD Cand/TV ) writing an eco novel right now called The 8th Octave in which the rainbow warriors are going to appear. Want you to know. Love you dearly. Would like to make TV programmes on your work too. the Magical Realism book begins " All the frightened forests,seabirds etc were calling to him..." it ties in the dreadful threats of man -made warming/ mining disasters , El Nino/Nina etc and the plight of the indigenous peoples.. Would love to join you - how can I help in the Caribbean ? marina ama omowale maxwell

I am a nature lover and I am deeply concerned with the the rapid degradation of our forest. I wanted to be a member of GreenPeace in saving and protecting the trees. More power to green peace movement!
I really love our mother Eath!! I am from La Union working in one of the State Universities here in La Union. As a researcher, major in plant pathology, and in the government, I really find hard time requesting for funds to conduct some innovations specially as far as recyling studies and topics related to waste management. No funds... but I really want to get into pro-EARTH activities.

Im a concerned citizen from san fernando pampanga phil. Due to the road widening project in San Fernando Pampanga along the Mc Arthur Highway Philippines, the trees along the high way are being cut down in order to pave way for the project. Because of this, 2000 plus trees aging around 50-100 years old are in danger. I do hope that there are still ways in order to save the reamaining trees from being cut down. As of today, July 14, 2009, approximately 1000 trees have already been cut down. Help save the Earth save the trees!
