Friday Facts: Green Peace Roots Lead to Vancouver

Default Image

Did you know that Green Peace was founded in Vancouver in 1971; it was originally formed to oppose the U.S. testing of nuclear devices off the coast of Alaska. It was formed in Kits during the hippie era. I guess they did more than just smoke pot and go without bathing for days.

Today Green Peace operates out of its international headquarters in Amsterdam and has 28 national and regional offices all over the world. It has a presence in 42 countries.
Note: The Anti-Poverty Committee should take notice. You will never get this big you lazy bums. Get off your ass and get a job. “Help Wanted” signs are plentiful jerk-offs.
