Greenpeace Gets One Right

...after having got one VERY wrong - threats of violence promulgated on their resources against those who might disagree with them.
And more power to them, they do not simply try to erase history:
They cite the appalling line on their website:
We know who you are. We know where you live. We know where you work. And we be many, but you be few.
Of course they waffle and pretend those lines mean other than what they clearly mean.
We got this one wrong, no doubt about it. I’m holding up my hands on behalf of the organisation and saying sorry for that. Peaceful action is at the very core of what we do, so any language that even comes close to suggesting that’s not the case is something we cannot support.
For all the waffling they recognize this was deeply wrong. So more power to them. Lots of groups would never step back as they ought to from crap like this.
