Greenpeace faces ‘criminal’ prosecution for desecrating Peruvian sacred sites – Forced to apologize – Exclusive Video

LIMA, Peru – Greenpeace has been forced to apologize for desecrating Peruvian sacred sites with politically motivated climate messages during the UN climate summit this week.

After outrage, Greenpeace forced to apologize to people of Peru over Nazca lines stunt – ‘Culture ministry says it will press charges against activists for damage to world heritage site as UN climate talks began in Lima’

Greenpeace: ‘We are deeply sorry for this.’

The Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow, (CFACT), a free-market group who opposes Greenpeace’s political agenda, helped force the apology by producing a video featuring Peruvians outraged over the exploitation of ancient Incan and Nazca historical sites. CFACT publicly confronted Greenpeace over the desecration at a UN hosted event on Monday evening. (see video)

Via UK Guardian: Peru’s vice-minister for culture Luis Jaime Castillo had accused Greenpeace of “extreme environmentalism” and ignoring what the Peruvian people “consider to be sacred” after the protest at the world renowned Nazca lines, a Unesco world heritage site. He said the government was seeking to prevent those responsible from leaving the country while it asked prosecutors to file charges of attacking archaeological monuments, a crime punishable by up to six years in prison.

The AP reported: Peru will seek criminal charges against Greenpeace activists who damaged the world-renowned Nazca lines by leaving footprints in the adjacent desert during a publicity stunt, a senior government official said Tuesday. “It’s a true slap in the face at everything Peruvians consider sacred,” Deputy Culture Minister Luis Jaime Castillo said of Monday’s action by the environmental group at the famed drawings etched into Peru’s coastal desert, a U.N. World Heritage site.

    1. Amen, Mike.

      P.s. LOVE my prairie Canada friends in SK, MB, and AB. Go there every fall for waterfowl hunting. Rural Canadians are the finest, best people on the planet, and your leader is the world’s only present true conservative leader, out of almost 200 nations. How y’all got that guy past the Leftists in Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver is a miracle but I am glad you did!!!

      1. Thank you for your support. Despite Right Wing governments in most provinces and federally it is still an uphill battle to even get pipelines in to export our abundant oil reserves. I wonder how many of the protesters used bus, foot or horse to get to their particular protest? Not many I’d guess.

        1. If we can keep the Conservatives in next year I’m sure the Democrats will get punted next election and maybe we will have a strong front to dismantle some of this nonsense. The CBC hardly reported on this story. Of course, why would our “neutral” national media report bad news about some of their best buddies? Also I couldn’t believe the “apology” issued by Greenpeace. They couldn’t bring themselves to actually admit any wrongdoing. Disgusting.

  1. This just about sums up Greenpeace and it acolytes doesn’t it?
    For all their posturing and pronouncements they are, in fact, very selfish. Only their views matter. They have no need to consider anything from anyone else’s point of view.
    The ruling elite in organisations like this are using them as a power base to further their own agendas. The “useful idiots” at the lower enjoy being vandals or climing chimneys and like to feel self-righteous about it.

    1. I happen to know a person who spent time in a Peruvian Prison.
      Unless you have rich friends who can buy good treatment for you, make every effort not to go to a Peruvian Prison!
      Sadly, GreenWar will buy favor for their criminals.

  2. For Greenpeace it has always been about getting money. A stunt like this was for nothing more than publicity to help increase their take from contributions. Shameless.

  3. Whats even worse is that this is political an economic propaganda. The natural gas and coal industries push solar and other forms of renewable power because it results in consuming MORE fossil fuels! It is so sad that all their ground level activists are completely unaware of this… We need greenpeace to preach a message based in reality, but no matter what you say, its no justification to desecrate a culture!

    1. Quoting:
      “The natural gas and coal industries push solar and other forms of renewable power because it results in consuming MORE fossil fuels!”
      That is the least intelligent (i.e. , most stupid) idea I have heard in my entire lifetime.

      1. If you don’t believe, consider the resources required to make a specific type of energy conversion system! Wind and solar require the mining and refining of ENORMOUS amounts of metals for producing their critical components. We are doing a terrible disservice to the earth and mankind by not considering the entire story of these forms of energy!!

  4. Full felony charges please, no bargans!! They KNEW they were committing a CRIME AGAINST THE PRESERVATION OF WORLD HISTORY, so since they messed up something that has been there for 2000 years — LET THEM sit in Jail for the same time span and see if they can hold up as well as what they destroyed!!

  5. GREENPEACE loves it. Any fine was worth all the publicity. It’s like the twin towers were for Al Quaeda: More ideological soldiers signing up for the struggle to start the revolution against….something.

    1. Nope, “GreenWar done f#cked up!” as Richard Pryor might have said.
      The Peruvians will not accept this and I know because I am married to a Peruvian.
      Jail time be the right time for them sonsobitches!

  6. Greenpus have form … not long ago they discharged 500L of diesel fuel into the sea at Trinity Inlet, Cairns, Australia … in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. That was good boys.

  7. Disgraceful, heathen behaviour… I have removed funds by this stupid, ignorant action… Forever, Totally agree with graphicconception post… entirely about PR and greed – sadly for causes that are far from “proven”… a researchers idyll… no reality involved!

  8. Unbelievable. There is no excuse for these kinds of actions. I hope they race full punishment by the Peruvian government. Terrible to see such a tragedy.

  9. ‘Greenpeace’, green on the outside, red on the inside.

    This an outrage to the Peruvian people.
    Greenpeace has committed a heinous crime and must pay and pay dearly.
    Arrests, imprisonments, fines, and lawsuits must be of the highest priority.
