a letter from greenpeace

In three days, General Motors spends the equivalent of Greenpeace's global annual budget. In two days, British Petroleum makes more in profit than Greenpeace receives in donations in a year. And in just one day, the Tatas earn 100 times more than what Greenpeace's 55,000 Indian supporters give in an entire year.
In other words, we live in a world where environmental activists and profit-hungry corporations have never been more unevenly matched.
And yet, Greenpeace can print the kind of advertisement that we did recently in Financial Times and International Herald Tribune, the two newspapers Mr. Ratan Tata reads.

This ad wasn't just seen by Mr. Tata, it has embarrassed the Tatas at a global level. It's been blogged about, talked about on major TV stations, and written about in newspapers and magazines, in India and abroad.

Now, to ensure that millions of other Indians also get to see this ad, and ask the Tatas to stop the port just like you have, we need to run this ad in a major Indian newspaper next week. Sadly, this seems to be the only way to get corporate-controlled media to talk about this urgent issue.

Running an ad in the national press is going to cost us a fair amount. But if every single one of our 110,000 cyberactivists donated generously, we could raise that amount.

this is the copy of a letter from ashish fernandes:-Oceans Campaigner, Greenpeace India

ps:Greenpeace has never taken money from corporations, governments or political parties, and we never will. And that's just what gives us the guts to pressure all of them. We are answerable 100% to people just like you. Please become a supporter and help us protect this planet not just for your generation, but future ones as well.
