Greenpeace is an environmental activist group that "began with a brief blockade of the border between the United States and Canada near Vancouver in October 1969, protesting U.S. underground nuclear testing at Amchitka in Alaska's Aleutian Islands."[1]

Jim Bohlen and Irving Stowe, two American activists who had helped to organize a chapter of the Sierra Club in British Columbia, together with a Canadian lawyer named Paul Cote organized an ongoing protest to the nuclear testing made up primarily of B.C. Sierra Club members. A plan was conceived to sail a ship into the Amchitka test zone, and a young Canadian named Bill Darnell suggested a name for the ship that would combine the themes of demilitarization and environmentalism. They decided to name the ship Greenpeace. In September of 1971, Greenpeace and Greenpeace II set sail in an attempt to disrupt a scheduled nuclear test. Neither ship managed to get close enough for the plan to succeed, but the US government ceased testing in the area shortly thereafter anyway.[2]

Was founded in 1971.[3]

It is affiliated with the United for Peace and Justice.[4]

Rep.

The meeting is to discuss strategies to stop the public from using strategic litigation to shut down development prjects. Our Revolution, Greenpeace, Protect Our Water, Heritage, Rights (POWHR) and WE ACT for Environmental Justice participated. In a mass email, Our Revolution linked to a letter signed by democrats to thwart development projects.

From the event invitation:[5]

"Our Revolution, America’s largest grassroots progressive organization, is partnering with Greenpeace USA to stop a looming threat to our communities and our planet. together, we are hosting a Town Hall to mobilize our networks of millions of members and hundreds of local chapters to stop a deal negotiated between Senator Joe Manchin, The American Petroleum Institute (API), and Democratic leadership to fast track permitting of fossil fuel extraction projects, leading to potential catastrophic climate impacts.
Join frontline communities and our allies in Congress to learn what you can do to help us stop Manchin's Dirty Deal!

From a mass email sent by Our Revolution dated September 12, 2022:

"Our Revolution is leading the charge alongside frontline communities and environmental justice groups like Greenpeace to kill Joe Manchin’s side deal for more dirty oil favors.

"Manchin is willing to shut down the government for more fossil fuel projects like the Mountain Valley Pipeline in WV and strip safeguards from impacted communities.

"Dems can’t celebrate “the biggest climate steps in history” while reversing them by caving to a literal coal baron.

"Our coalition of 650 organizations is urging Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to detach the deal from the must-pass bill to fund the government — we cannot let Manchin hold us hostage!

"Bernie railed against it on the Senate floor this week and says he’ll vote it down, and Our Revolution is calling for a progressive mutiny in Congress.

"A coalition of 72 US House Reps have signed onto a letter[6] led by US Rep. Raul Grijalva - but we need more of our representatives in Congress to stand in opposition.

Greenpeace signed the letter.


People vs. Fossil Fuels

Jamie Henn's Fossil Free Media is organizing "civil disobedience" at the White House October 11-15, 2021 to convince Joe Biden to take executive action to stop fossil fuels through their People vs. Fossil Fuels coalition of far left environmental activists.[7] Greenpeace was named as a member of the People vs. Fossil Fuels Steering Committee.

Greenpeace leaders, members, speakers and outside connections

The Washington City Paper (City Paper) of May 29, 1992, in their "Events" listings, had the following: "Militarism Is An Environmental Issue", lecture by Greenpeace activist Claire Greensfelder, part of the "Women Strike for Peace (WSP) educational meeting. Abbott Community Center, City Council Chambers, 7500 Maple Avenue, Takoma Park (Md), May 29 at 7;30 PM. Free. (202 543-2660."

The Abbott Center was named after the longtime Takoma Park mayor Sammie Abbott, for many decades an indentified member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), and a perpetual agitator in DC affairs. Real name Sammie Abdullah Abbott. More about him can be found in the study "The Meaning of the Bicentennial: Volume One: The Peoples Bicentennial Commission (PBC), by Max Friedman, published by the ACU Education and Research Institute, Wash. D.C., June 1976. Includes a photo of Abbott in one of his propaganda photo-ops.

Women Strike for Peace (WSP) aka Women's Strike for Peace and Women's International Strike for Peace (WISP), was founded in 1961 supposedly to oppose nuclear testing and weapons, but was quickly taken over by the CPUSA, getting their key members of both the "Hanoi Lobby" and "Anti-Defense Lobby" into key leadership positions all during the 1960's and 70's. Among them were Pauline Rosen, a founder of the original CPUSA; Bella Abzug (D-NY), one of the CPUSA's top "friends" in many fronts; and Cora Rubin Weiss, daughter of identified CPUSA elector and Party member Samuel Rubin, IPS leader, Hanoi Lobby top leader, and key "anti-defense lobby" organizer. The WSP was a parallel communist-dominated organization to the older Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF), which the CPUSA also infiltrated to the top with their members and sympathizers from Kay Camp to Dorothy Hayes, an identified CPUSA "peace" leader.

Open Letter to the Biden-Harris Administration: Treating Disinformation as an Intersectional Threat

Greenpeace signed a letter spearheaded by Accountable Tech headlined Open Letter to the Biden-Harris Administration: Treating Disinformation as an Intersectional Threat urging Joe Biden to "treat disinformation as a fundamental and intersectional threat" and proposes a range of supposed remedies to suppress speech on social media platforms, create and bolster federal government agencies to deal with "disinformation" and further to actively indoctrinate Americans, particularly in public schools.[8]
