Greenpeace

This group has proven itself to be the activists of the summits. While Greenpeace does not enjoy nation status, its influence and activism has earned it a seat at this summit. Greenpeace has demostrated its convictions by organizing anti-nuclear testing protests at French embassies all around the world. The organization has a particular bone to pick with France, because of the alleged French bombing of Greenpeaces Rainbow Warrior vessel in an Australian harbor 10 years ago.

While Greenpeace has vowed to do anything to stop further testing, it is important that it recognizes its boundries. The moderators of the summit will not put up with antics that disrupt the conference and will either silence or remove participants who over step their bounds.
