Back to the beginning with Founders Patrick Moore, Paul Watson and Bob Hunter
5 December 2019 | by random-70778See all my reviews

My dad was pals with Bob Hunter and he had given us a pic of himself and co-founder Patrick Moore at the very first Greenpeace action. Greenpeace has gone global and exhibits today a lot of the problems of any large organizations where the mission of the organization tends to become growing itself, limiting transparency, taking positions not all its supporters might support, and preserving its own internal bureaucracy. But that doesn't change what Moore, Watson and Hunter did was astounding.
