BUSH vs. GREENPEACE - NOT GUILTY

It's over! I've been in court in Miami all this week defending our ability to stand up for what's right for the planet and our right to speak out against environmental abuses

And at 3:30 this afternoon the judge acquitted Greenpeace on all charges. The prosecution's case was unproven before we even presented our defense. I wanted you to be among the first to know. Thanks so much for your support.

It's incredible - in the last couple of weeks 81,311 people like you, all around the world, have e-mailed President Bush and Attorney General John Ashcroft to condemn this prosecution. The US Government has never heard from Greenpeace in such strong numbers. It's a great show of what we can all do together, and I congratulate you.

Together we have won. Bush and Ashcroft have been shown to have been vindictive, using an 1872 law, and shown to be trying to stifle civil disobedience by shutting Greenpeace down.

But Greenpeace is still in business, and we come out of court more determined than ever to stand up for the planet. But we need your help.

The US Government has forced us to spend a lot of time and money defending this case. Money we should be spending defending ancient forests, sailing the high seas to highlight the collapse of ocean eco-systems, campaigning against irresponsible corporations that pollute our air and water at will.

Our campaign to defend ancient forests, in the Amazon - where this Miami case started - and the last remaining ancient forests in the United States, continues. Watch us.

However, the threat to Greenpeace is not yet over. Hard on the heels of the US Government's case, we may end up in court against Exxon Mobil, the world's largest corporate producer of global warming gases. Last year Greenpeace volunteers protested at their headquarters dressed in tiger suits to highlight Exxon's role in global warming. They didn't like it, and our volunteers face felony charges. Like Bush, they are trying to shut us up for good.

So please, keep Greenpeace in action, be part of the action. We appreciate your on- going support, and we continue to need it, now that we have faced off Bush's malicious prosecution. If you can make an emergency donation, please click here.

We couldn't have done it without you.
