PROTESTING THE PROTESTORS: Greenpeace is planning a “Run for Your Life” 5K road race at Liberty State Park in New Jersey on Saturday. But the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) will conduct a counter demonstration “alleging that the environmental group has committed ‘eco-manslaughter’ through its support of international policies limiting development and the expansion of technology to the developing world’s poor”, according to CNSNews.

The protest makes a nice bookend to the award that Greenpeace won last year in Johannesburg, when they were handed the “Bulls**t Trophy” (yes, that’s the trophy’s real name) by African and Asian farmers, for their contribution to the “preservation of poverty” in developing countries.
