How Greenpeace Wrecked One of the Most Sacred Places in the Americas

"This has been done without any respect for our laws," Peru's deputy minister for culture Luis Jaime Castillo told the press, calling Greenpeace's actions "thoughtless, insensitive, illegal, irresponsible and absolutely pre-meditated." 

He explained further: "It was done in the middle of the night. They went ahead and stepped on our hummingbird, and looking at the pictures we can see there's very severe damage. Nobody can go on these lines without permission—not even the president of Peru!"

Greenpeace are apparently sorry, big deal. They've done major, maybe irreparable damage to part of the Nazca and should face appropriate retribution. The Greenpeace people that I've encountered have been so self-righteous and convinced of their moral superiority that I can well imagine them doing something like this and then whining 'But I'm trying to save the planet, why are you stopping me?'

More here but probably not on the eco warriors favourite news organisation, the BBC. For Greenpeace are heroes to the BBC and it's politically correct brigade of 'journalists'.

Oh dear, another opportunity for activation of the "right to be forgotten". This will all be deleted from the internet within a year. Someone, somewhere will keep the records, to be republished one day. Did we chuckle when French special forces sank the Rainbow Warrior? In NZ waters, no less! Since Suez that's about the only thing I like about the Kermits.

Peru needs to DEMAND that the greenterrorists be deported to his country so that can be judged by Peru's laws and regulations.
Then hang them one at a time while the others watch to see when their turn comes up.
Then make greenpeace a terrorist group illegal to be a part of for EVER.
