|Greenpeace activists are brainwashed and trained at "direct-action" training camps|
Greenpeace, the darling of the liberal and leftist media, is spearheading its eco-fanatic anti-growth, anti-business agenda on all continents. Here are just a couple of recent examples:
"Our strategy is to disrupt and delay key projects and infrastructure while gradually eroding public and political support for the [coal] industry. We urgently need to build the anti-coal movement and mobilise off the back of the community backlash to coal seam gas.”
This call to arms was in the Australian Anti-Coal Movement’s Stopping the Australian Coal Export Boom document, exposed last week and met with wide condemnation by state and federal governments, the union movement and business. The aims of the anti-coal movement contained in the secret plan were reported as “severely reducing” coal exports by “some hundreds of millions of tonnes per annum” using disrupt and delay tactics.
Actress Lucy Lawless and other Greenpeace activists last week boarded the drill ship Noble Discoverer in New Zealand before it left for the West Coast, where it will undergo cold-weather modifications. The activists were arrested Monday and charge with burglary.
Six activists from Greenpeace — including the head of its Charlotte office — face charges after a protest Wednesday morning in front of Duke Energy Corp.'s headquarters.
Just as a certain other wellknown international organization, also Greenpeace is brainwashing and and educating its activists at special "direct-action" training camps, like this one in Florida:
The camp was held this week at Camp Flying Eagle in the wilds of eastern Manatee County, near the headwaters of the Manatee River. There, about 60 activists from different organizations across the country camped in tents scattered throughout the property and attended classes and workshops from 9:30 a.m. until, sometimes, after 10 p.m.
---On a sunny afternoon this week, about two dozen campers donned helmets and harnesses and were taught the correct way to use ropes to climb. Not rocks or mountains, but the sides of buildings or other structures.
Elsewhere, activists were taught how to chain themselves to various objects and how to react when police arrive.
Down the river, a group was learning how to handle an inflatable boat.
All are skills that can be used during a ramped-up protest, courtesy of Greenpeace, perhaps the pioneer in such methods.
The direct-action training camp wasn't attended solely by Greenpeace members. Matthew Almonte, a 21-year-old junior at the University of South Florida, isn't a member, but he does want his voice heard. He figured the skills he was learning at the Greenpeace camp would help.
"I wanted to learn skills here that I can utilize in the real world," said the political science major.
He wore cumbersome harnesses with carabiners, nylon straps and other hardware.
His partner in the climbing exercise was Kathleen Riley, 20, of Tampa, who is in her third year at St. Petersburg College and a self-described activist. "I want to learn and take home a skill," she said.
Campers came from 22 states, said Joe Smyth, spokesman for Greenpeace. Some are environmental activists; others hail from labor movements. "There are Occupy members here, too," he said.
The six-day camp was free, though campers had to pay their own way to and from the site. Food — a vegan and vegetarian menu — was provided.
