South Yorkshire Greenpeace

We stand in solidarity with Greenpeace groups around the globe to create a better world guided by the international scientific concensus. This we attempt to achieve through our core values of Non-Violent Direct Action in order to bring about a close and harmonious, peaceful existence for the planet.

As Mahatma Gandhi said: "An unjust law is itself a species of violence. Arrest for it's breach is more so. Now the law of nonviolence says that violence should be resisted not by counter-violence but by nonviolence. This I do by breaking the law and by peacefully submitting to arrest and imprisonment." 

We bear witness to the environmental injustice inflicted upon the planet by greedy corporations who care nothing for its demise. What sets Greenpeace apart from other environmental groups is that we do not accept donations from corporations, companies or political associations, only from members of the public who are our most important and core support.

Meeting at The Red Lion 109 Charles Street, corner of Charles Street/Eyre Lane, Sheffield at 8pm on the 2nd Tuesday every month, we highlight local, national and international environmental issues and discuss how as a local Greenpeace group we can effectively campaign in a positive way, whilst supporting the Greenpeace organisation as a whole. We welcome all people from the South Yorkshire area who would like to get involved with Greenpeace and our campaigns. Our meetings are fun and informal, with lots of laughs and perhaps a few pints of beer to enjoy the evening with too, so please do come along.
