Greenpeace - an independent, campaigning organization which uses non-violent, creative confrontation to expose global environmental problems, and to force the solutions which are essential to a green and peaceful future.

Greenpeace's goal is to ensure the ability of the earth to nurture life in all its diversity. Therefore Greenpeace seeks to:
  • Protect biodiversity in all its forms.
  • Prevent pollution and abuse of the earth's ocean, land, air and fresh water.
  • End all nuclear threats.
  • Promote peace, global disarmament and non-violence.

Today Greenpeace adheres to the same principle that led 12 people to sail a small boat into the US atomic test zone off Amchitka in Alaska in 1971: determined individuals can alter the actions and purposes of even the most powerful by "bearing witness," that is, by drawing attention to an abuse of the environment through their unwavering presence at the scene, whatever the risk.

Greenpeace embraces the principle of non-violence, rejecting attacks on either people or property.
