Having started here just a couple of weeks ago I knew that I was joining a dynamic, creative and passionate group of people. But when, on the first day of my second week, activists shut down 78 Shell petrol stations across the UK and broadcast the action live from the world's first live direct action TV channel I realised just how different this is from other organisations.
And more than that, I was amazed by our supporters and how their unfailing generosity makes actions like this happen. So we made a video to say a massive thank you to everyone that supports us, to show you what your support does and why we need you as we look to the year ahead.
For me Ruth sums it up best: “We are you. Greenpeace is Greenpeace supporters.” We really couldn’t do it without you so thank you so much for all your support.
If you haven’t already, please add your name to the Arctic scroll at www.savethearctic.org. You can be part of this global movement.
