Greenpeace's Protest Vessel Arrives In NW Waters

Ever want to board Greenpeace’s iconic ship, The Rainbow Warrior, without getting arrested?

The public is invited to tour the ship often used for water-borne civil disobedience campaigns, while it’s docked this weekend in Vancouver, Wash.

Public tours are available on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 2 and 3, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., at Vancouver Landing, just west of 100 Columbia St., on the Columbia riverfront. Special activities for children will be offered from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.

Greenpeace is bringing the vessel to the West Coast for the campaign against Northwest coal export terminals.

The weekend ours will highlight how Greenpeace uses the boat to promote activism and environmental education.
