All these things you have said of beauty,
But in truth you have not spoken of it
but of unsatisfied desires,
And beauty is not a desire but an ecstasy.
It is not a thirsty mouth or a stretched empty hand,
But rather a burning heart and an enchanted soul.
It is not the image you would like to see
nor the song you would like to hear,
But rather an image that you see,
although you close your eyes
and a song that you hear, although you plug your ears.
It is not the sap under the wrinkled bark,
nor a wing attached to a claw,
But rather a garden always in bloom
and a cloud of angels still in flight.
Beauty is life when life reveals its holy face.
But you are life and you are the veil.
Beauty is eternity contemplating itself in a mirror.
But you are eternity and you are the mirror.
Greenpeace exists because this
earth deserves a voice. It needs
It needs change. It needs action.
Greenpeace is an independent
global campaigning organisation
that acts to change attitudes and
behaviour, to protect and
the environment and to promote
Catalysing an energy revolution to
address the number one threat facing
our planet: climate change.
Defending our oceans by challenging
wasteful and destructive fishing,
and creating a global network
of marine reserves.
Protecting the world’s ancient forests
and the animals, plants and people
that depend on them.
Working for disarmament and peace
by tackling the causes of conflict and
calling for the elimination of
all nuclear weapons.
Creating a toxic free future
with safer alternatives to hazardous
chemicals in today’s products and
Campaigning for sustainable agriculture
by rejecting genetically engineered organisms,
protecting biodiversity and
encouraging socially responsible farming.
Greenpeace is present in more
than 55 countries across Europe,
the Americas, Asia, Africa and the Pacific.
To maintain its independence,
Greenpeace does not accept
donations from governments
or corporations but relies on
contributions from individual
supporters and foundation grants.
Greenpeace has been campaigning against
environmental degradation since 1971 when
a small boat of volunteers and journalists
sailed into Amchitka, an area north of
Alaska where the US Government
was conducting underground nuclear tests.
This tradition of ’bearing witness’ in
a non-violent manner continues today,
and our ships are an important part of
all our campaign work.
We exist to expose environmental criminals,
and to challenge government and
corporations when they fail to live
up to their mandate to safeguard
our environment and our future.
In pursuing our mission, we have no permanent
allies or enemies. We promote open, informed
debate about society’s environmental choices.
We use research, lobbying, and quiet diplomacy
to pursue our goals, as well as high-profile,
non-violent conflict to raise the level and
quality of public debate.
And we believe that the struggle to preserve
the future of our planet is not about us.
It’s about you. Greenpeace speaks
for 2.8 million supporters worldwide,
and encourages many millions more than that
to take action every day.
We take the name of our flagship,
the Rainbow Warrior, from a
legend. It described a time when humanity’s
greed has made the Earth sick. At that time,
a tribe of people known as the Warriors of t
he Rainbow would rise up to defend her.
As one of the longest banners we’ve ever
made summed things up,
”When the last tree is cut, the last river poisoned,
and the last fish dead, we will discover
that we can’t eat money...”
LAS PETROLERAS DEL
Más de 20 mil hectáreas de selva y animales en peligro de extinción como el yaguareté están amenazados por la contaminación de empresas petroleras que operan dentro del Parque Nacional Calilegua (Jujuy) ¡Y piensan perforar más pozos petroleros! Esto es algo completamente absurdo
