New Zealand is too slow in the race to realise its clean
potential, Greenpeace International's executive director,
Kumi Naidoo, says. South African-born Mr Naidoo has been
visiting this country to support the campaign against
deep-sea oil drilling.
The environmental protest movement has a mostly honourable
history in this country and has earned the respect of a
considerable number of citizens, but there have been
occasions when protesters have chosen the wrong option to
make their points.
