New Voice of Greenpeace


An interview with South African human rights activist Kumi Naidoo, the new and first African head of Greenpeace.
In Copenhagen for the climate summit, Naidoo says Greenpeace will
become more populist but maintain direct action as a powerful tool.

"History teaches us
that the only time you move forward is when decent men and women are
prepared to stand up and put their lives on the line, or take the risk
that they will go to prison." 

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
