ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Greenpeace’s desecration of the World Heritage-designated Nazca Lines in Peru is just the latest appalling offense the ultraradical organization has committed (“Greenpeace’s Nazca lines stunt prompts Peru to seek criminal charges,” Web, Dec. 11). Greenpeace activists have attempted to storm oil platforms, have destroyed crops and trespassed at nuclear power facilities. While these activists may think they’re getting their message out, all they’re really doing is disrupting life for the public and now risking doing grave damage to what the United Nations has determined is “a masterpiece of human creative genius.”

It’s no wonder a Greenpeace co-founder has distanced himself from the group and even condemned it as “anti-human,” “anti-democratic” and “basically anti-civilization.”
