Greenpeace has been responsible
for reshaping the world’s opinion
toward the environment, one of the
organization‘s members said Mon-
day night.

To promote the intemational or-
ganiration and increase the aware-
ness of environmental problems,
Greenpeace member Christopher
Childs spoke to about 250 people at
the Worsham Theatre Monday

The presentation was sponsored
by the Student Activities Board’s
Contemporary Altairs Committee
and Students Against Violation of
the Environment.

Childs, a Greenpeace activist
since “>87, showed several slides
that depicted environmental dam-
age and illustrated Greenpeace’s
mission to protect it.

“Our vision is to create a new,
green and peaceful earth," Childs

Greenpeace, an international or-
ganization formed in 1971 by indi-
viduals concerned about the grow-
ing nuclear arms race, advocates “a
planet that is healthy, environmen-
tally sound and at peace with it-
self," Childs said.

“Be in the way“ is Greenpeace’s
motto. which Childs said that it has
demonstrated it over the years
through several actions.

During the N70s, about 40.000
whales were being killed each year
by commercial whaling.

Greenpeace sent out rafts to ob-
struct whaling ships' hat'poons
which led to a decrease iii the num-
ber of countries that killed whales
for commercial purposes.

Greenpeace activists also have
been sighted for spraying paint on
seal pelts to prevent hunting, ac-
cording to Childs.

In 1973 the ship Greenpeace III
attempted to stop atmospheric nu-
clear testing by the French navy. A
Greenpeace crew member was
clubbed by the French navy, but the
protest brought an end to atmo-
spheric testing by the French.

The economics of the fishing in-
dustry force fishermen to retrieve
as many fish as possible as fast as
they can. Childs said.

In Massachusetts. drift nets 30 to
60 miles long are pulled across the
water and catch anything in their
path. Greenpeace wants to ban the
use of the nets, Childs said.

The tuna industry has killed
about 6.5 million dolphins in the
Eastern Tropical Pacific by setting
nets around schools of dolphins to
catch the tuna swimming beneath

three nominees submitted by the
eight student body presidents.

“It’s a step in the right direction
for students because it reduces the
possibility of inequity of represen-
tation on the council," said John
Elder, state coordinator of g( vern~

ter each student body president
wrote an individual letter of recom-

“I wouldn’t call the old system
evil,” Wigginton said, “but this is
much better and more efficient."

Student leaders worked since last

on dealing With the other issues we
have to deal with"

Hill said he has no intention of
resigning his position, which offi-
cially expired last summer. Hill re-
mained on the board because Wil-
