The Rainbow Warrior

For nearly 50 years, Greenpeace has been sailing the world's oceans, protecting our planet and fighting for environmental justice. Through the Greenpeace Fleet - Rainbow Warrior, Arctic Sunrise and Witness - and tireless Greenpeace activists, they have been successful in obstructing nuclear tests in the Pacific, documenting plastics in our oceans, conducting research into the effects of climate change in the Arctic, and stopping shiploads of illegal timber leaving the Amazon. The fleet of ships has even brought humanitarian relief to communities devastated by extreme weather, and are fundamental to Greenpeace campaigns. Come mid-March, the Rainbow Warrior will be docking here in Malaysia, and we speak about the ship's history and the milestones reached through the campaigns carried out on it, with Greenpeace's Malaysia's Yvonne Nathan (Digital & Media Campaigner) and Thing Siew Shuen (Senior Program Manager).
