Greenpeace

    In 1969, the USA began a series of nuclear tests on a little island near Alaska. At that time, the Alaskans did not realize that those tests were dangerous. They did not even know they were happening! A Canadian decided to do something about this. With some friends they bought a boat  whichthey called “Greenpeace”. And they went to the island in their boat, just when the Americans wanted to explode an other bomb.

    The Americans had to end testing bombs in Alaska, and the Greenpeace people and their organization have become famous all over the world.

    Since then, Greenpeace has never stopped working: itsmembers try to stop people and governments doing things that pollute the environment
