Is Greenpeace a Friend or Foe of World Heritage Sites?
« on: December 12, 2014, 07:59:21 pm »
Regardless of where you might stand on the issue of Greenpeace, they have clearly crossed a line this time:

The Peruvian government is planning to file criminal charges against Greenpeace activists who may have permanently scarred the Nazca Lines World Heritage Site during a publicity stunt.

As The Guardian reports, the Nazca lines "are huge figures depicting living creatures, stylized plants and imaginary figures scratched on the surface of the ground between 1,500 and 2,000 years ago." The figures, which can only be seen from the air, are believed to have had ritual functions related to astronomy.

I agree

Greenpeace has clearly stepped over the line on this
The non-doing of any evil,
the performance of what's skillful,
the cleansing of one's own mind:
this is the teaching of the Awakened.
