Greenpeace executive director Russel Norman says his discharge without conviction for a protest against the oil exploration ship Amazon Warrior sets an important precedent.

In April last year the former Green MP and fellow climate activist Sara Howell, who was also discharged last Friday by the Napier District Court, swam in front of the ship 60 nautical miles off Napier, forcing it to stop its search for the day.

The charges were laid by the Ministry of Business, Innovation, & Employment.

IN BRITISH COLUMBIA’S southern interior, on unceded land of the Secwepemc Nation, Kanahus Manuel stands alongside a 7-by-12-foot “tiny house” mounted on a trailer. Her uncle screws a two-by-four into a floor panel while her brother-in-law paints a mural on the exterior walls depicting a moose, birds, forests, and rivers — images of the terrain through which the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion will pass, if it can get through the Tiny House Warriors’ roving blockade.
