Greenpeace activists have been forced to apologise after damaging an ancient Peruvian monument during a publicity stunt.

Activists from Greenpeace placed a banner next to a figure of a hummingbird, carved more than 1,500 years ago, in a bid to highlight the case for action at the UN climate summit in Lima.

The Peruvian government said it would press criminal charges against Greenpeace activists who left footprints close to the carvings…

    I think they should be sent to spend some quality time in a peruvian prison for their damage to a artifact.

      Cultural vandalism of ancient monuments should get them a stiff sentence. It’s a horrible crime.

    • Frau Katze

      That sounds good to me.

    • Ed Ellison

      A good flogging sounds about right.

    What will these #$%$ come up with next? Probably spray painting the Sistine Chapel to protest the seal hunt.

    Yes they should all be locked up for a long, long time. I’m sure there are plenty of Peruvian prisoners who would love to meet the gringos who desecrated their national treasure.

    One of many reasons why I don’t support Greenpeace… they are more interested in stunts that the actual issue themselves.

    Lame behavior even for enviro-loonies. They usually claim to respect the culture of victimized brown people around the world.

    If only the Russians done the right thing during the Greenpeace piracy action a couple of years ago as they do to Somali pirates, maybe the surviving members might have learned to act with some regard to acting lawfully.

      They are never going to bother Russia again. Everything else would be bad PR for no gain. Fuck everyone else, they can have their own fun with the green loons Just slap them with the highest jail time possible and see them squirm – the only way that works.
