US Justice Dept Fails in Legal Action Attacking Greenpeace US

21-05-2004 08:08

Good News!

The outrageous attempt by the US authorities to attack the whole of Greenpeace USA after an anti Bush / Logging ship demo in april 2002 has failed.

The US administration is getting well out of line in terms of attacking protesters, even now going as far as the fluffy greenpeace ngo types, but hey, i guess that's hardly surprising news to you folks.

Anyway below is the press release and links for more info. Screw Bush!
