Sara Selim Journal Article 1:
Eden, Sally. 2004. Greenpeace, New political economy
This article tells us how Greenpeace is a very beneficial organization to the environment and how Greenpeace is the most widely well-known organization. It is an independent organization that tries to disclose global environmental problems, and seeks for green and serene life. Greenpeace has been bringing raising awareness, and public education to competition. Greenpeace came out in 1969 from an anti-nuclear group of the Sierra group in Canada. In 1971, the group sent out two boats to Vancouver, Canada to protect at U.S nuclear tests off Alaska. There was a rise in the environmental interest among public in the late 1960s and 1970s. By the mid 1970s, the environmental public started to decline, even though, Greenpeace’s actions were expanding. In terms of political power, and public support, Greenpeace was very successful. In 1995, the Brent Spar episode demonstrated Greepeace’s weakness and strengths and has become a guide for determining business environmental relations.
This article showed us what is Greenpeace trying to do and how is it working to save the environment from all of the bad things that’s threatening the earth. Also, the benefits that Greenpeace gave to the environment by trying to make this world safe for the children and it’s doing all of this by public support that it is giving.
