In the Media


  • Education
    • Greenpeace could inform consumer association (consumentenbond, voedingscentrum) about "good" fish coming from these MSC certified fisheries
    • Greenpeace could mobilize their millions of supporters to write to these consumer associations -- or to boycott buying "dirty" fish...
  • Create a graph/diagram of all the companies that PP owns (like "open oil" graph!), and their contracts / customers...
  • Request that IMDEA publishes where do they get the funding from
  • Ask for (more) whistleblowers to come out from those companies!! (MSC, PP, BLE, NVWA, ships...)

What can I do

  • Show the Zembla documentary at the movie evenings (Citizen Kino, hackerspace...)
  • Give a presentation at 31c3, and ask German hackers to help out with BLE!

Ask Investigative Journalists
