In the 1970s, I worked with small group of peace and ecology activists, who founded Greenpeace in Vancouver, Canada. We staged ecology actions to to stop nuclear weapons testing, whaling, sealing, and toxic dumping, and to preserve rivers, forests, and wild species. I tell the story of this first decade of the now-famous ecology group in the book Greenpeace: The Inside Story. I currently post the “Deep Green” blog at the Greenpeace International website.
I took photographs during these campaigns and edited our newspaper, the Greenpeace Chronicles. The following photographs depict some of those early Greenpeace campaigns: Whale voyages on the Phyllis Cormack, the original Greenpeace ship, and the minesweeper James Bay, and anti-nuclear weapons campaigns in Colorado, Washington state, and New Hampshire in the US.
