Greenpeace should be worried. A second large company has accused the prominent environmental group of violating the potent U.S. racketeering law. In a lawsuit filed August 22, Energy Transfer Partners accused Greenpeace of spreading lies and inciting vandalism to raise money and hamper completion of the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline. The legal attack follows a similar suit against Greenpeace brought last year on behalf of the Canadian timber company Resolute Forest Products Inc.
It is, no doubt, a corporate dream come true to have support in government to attack Greenpeace.
But know this – even if they were to take down Greenpeace financially – ten more environmental groups will spring up to do the good work that Greenpeace has done.
People are awakening to lies they’ve been told and the destruction they no longer want to be associated with, it’s over – we’re coming to a tipping point and can only hope we’re not doing so too late.
