Gordon Jackman is on the board of Greenpeace New Zealand.
According to an August 2002 Greenpeace press release, Jackman stood down from that position because he;
“had found himself in a position of conflicting interests as a result of being asked to assist the Green Party in its negotiations with the Labour Party following the election…”
I want to set the record straight that I am participating in the negotiations as a private individual. This role is not tenable in the role of the Chair and Trustee of Greenpeace New Zealand, said Mr Jackman.
I want to protect the integrity of Greenpeace and its ability to operate independently of any political party, he said.
Jackman may not be a Green Party member, but his long time partner and fellow Greenpeace activist, Catherine Delahunty is a very senior Green.
As detailed in this post, in June 2005 both Jackman and Delahunty delivered a Kotare seminar in Wellington to young anarchist activists associated with the anti-bypass campaign.
Two members of the “Urewera 17“, Ira/Tim Bailey and Emily Bailey were leaders of that campaign. Emily Bailey was part of the group that invited Jackman and Delahunty to Wellington.
In 2005 Jackman and Delahunty toured new Zealand with Greenpeace’s People Poisoned Daily Tour. The tour aimed to expose the dangers of dioxin.
Tairua made the news in October 2007 when police searched his home as part of the October 15th anti terror raids.
Tairua admitted that he had been invited by Tame Iti to use his soldiering skills in training people at Iti’s Urewera camps. Tairua did not attend.
Several Greenpeace staffers have ties to the “Urewera 17“, including Tia Taurere and allegedly Kristin Gillies.
There is an almost incestuous relationship between Greenpeace, the Green Party, Kotare and the “Urewera 17“.
The Green Party pretends it is a peace party and solicits votes from the public on that basis.
Greenpeace solicits millions from the public by masquerading as a non political champion of environmental causes.
Gordon Jackman has links to all four branches of this twisted relationship
He deserves to be asked some very probing questions.
Who in our brave MSM is up to the task?
