GP File 7 Greenpeace Leader on Board of Marxist Training School, Linked to "Urewera 17"

Gordon Jackman is on the board of Greenpeace New Zealand.

For several years until 2002, Jackman was chairman of Greenpeace.

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.

Both Jackman and Delahunty are or have also been trustees of the Kotare activist training school situated at Wellsford, north of Auckland.

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.

They were accompanied by Vietnam veteran and Ngapuhi elder, Kingi Tairua, who spoke about the effects of the dioxin based defoliant "Agent Orange".

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?

Anon-I know plenty of libertarian "climate skeptics".

Never comment on funders or sources anon-but if you can arrange something with Mobil, I'd be grateful.

Hi Trevor,

To quote you in one of your comments on my blog, "all utter bollocks".

Just like your extreme paranoia with African Democrats being puppets of communists, believing that NZ-China Friendship Society is a "communist front" when it's Patron is former National Party cabinet minister and anti-communist Philip Burdon, and finally your belief that Maori nationalists and activists are inherently communists, ought we really believe your extremist tirades against such luminary organisations as Greenpeace?

Surely not sir!

Kind regards,

guess trev will figure out the communist roots of the bluegreens next, maybe he has a communist conspiracy for James Lovelock...

I get that you are pro capitalist and profit at any expense, and get your rabid anti leftism... your ideology doesn't add up but it is rather consistent in its anti government unless protecting private property and hard line anti indigenous and environment.

you must lead a lonely and sad life sometime trev. so much hate and money worship. whatever floats your boat.

ps. is vandana shiva a communist to you? becayse she advocates the protection of the commons and community.

Trev, you have some of the mentally stunted people of the extreme left reading the blog. Great.

Please keep up your excellent work. You are a democratic hero!

Great to see the left wing extremists exposed for what they are and exposing the terror styled network that is lying hidden beneath the surface in your country.
