Here’s something you won’t find in the MSM, but thanks to NoTricksZone, a few of us out there will hear about it. (Just imagine if they had been tea-partiers).It’s official: Some of Greenpeace’s members have found guilty. Eleven activists from Britain, Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United States were found guilty today in Denmark of falsifying documents and number plates, this according to Univision.com here. They were sentenced to 14 days suspended prison terms.
On 17 December, 2009, the head of Greenpeace Spain Juan Lopez de Uralde and Norwegian Nora Christiansen crashed the Danish parliament’s security and unfurled a banner with the words: “Politicians Talk, Leaders ACT”.
Yet, the impatient radical activists ought to be happy with the judgement, as they got off easy. Univision.com writes:
In its ruling, the court explained the low sentences by “the character of the circumstances on the one hand, and on the other, the fact that the transgressions were part of a peaceful political happening with the goal of causing debate,” pointing out that “no particular serious rights were infringed upon.”
The goal of causing debate? Right. The last things these kooks want is debate. These are dogmatists who are incapable of listening to other opinions, they deny contradictory data, and demand that their views of the world be enacted as law immediately. Democracy for them is a just a bothersome obstacle. Luckily democracy is still keeping these loons in check.
Feeling unappreciated and peeved, the planet-saving López de Uralde added:
We were treated almost like terrorists.”
The court also found the Greenpeace Nordic wing guilty of organising the demonstration and fined the group $15,000.
Of course don’t expect them to be repentant now that they’ve been slapped on the wrist. They believe their actions were justified. Just listen to former Juan López de Uralde, as quoted recently by the leftwing online German Tageszeitung (TAZ) here:
The whole process was completely over the top. and a bit surreal. The worst is: Although the most recent data on climate change are alarming and emissions have increased since the failed summit in Copenhagen, rising 5% just last year, massive action is being taken against activists. There’s a huge and obvious contradiction between the will to take on climate change and the persecution of activists.”
