One law for all?

Written by 

The Hound would like to know why Greenpeace activists who break the law never get punished.

Earlier this year Greenpeace head Russel Norman and a fellow eco-terrorist were charged with disrupting the legal business of an oil company off the Taranaki coast but they were discharged without conviction.

And just last month, a bunch of Greenpeace ‘rent-a-crowd’ arrested for protesting earlier this year at the site of a new dairy farm in the Mackenzie Country were not convicted, illegally locking themselves onto machinery being used to dig a pipeline for the legally proposed dairy farm at Simon’s Pass near Lake Pūkaki.

It seems the judiciary in this country is giving Greenpeace activists carte blanche to break laws and not face any punishment – while other New Zealanders don’t enjoy the same largesse.
