UPDATE: Trek of Fools – Ric Werme provides the link to a Spanish language video…the pictures tell the whole story:
The documentary provides the names and passport numbers of some of the Greenpeace activists.
Here’s a Spanish-language video clearly showing the “irreparable” damage to the Peruvian Nazca Lines done by renegade Greenpeace activists earlier this month.
In the video Ana María Cogorno, director of the Asociación Maria Reiche Internacional para el Arte & Ciencia, explains the “irrefutable evidence of damage” to the UNESCO World Heritage site. The video clearly shows Greenpeace protestors trampling the site, moving stones in order to hold down the signs so that aerial photos could be made for the purpose of publicity. And publicity they got.
Unfortunately I do not know Spanish and if any Spanish speakers could provide the important points made in the video by Ms Cogorgno, who is clearly showing the damage done, please do so and I will post.
Meanwhile Greenpeace is no longer a loved organization in Peru, as Russian RT news site here shows. The Greenpeace director unsuccessfully tries to manage the exploding public relations disaster amid angry protesters demanding justice:
Russian RT news site quotes one angry protester, writing:
The first thing that the people of Nazca are demanding in the name of everyone who makes a living from tourism is the punishment to the individuals responsible for this,’ a demonstrator said Friday.”
