Someone sent this to me (see below). It only looks like part of an
article. I do not know where it was from. However, I did go to the
Greenpeace webpage and saw their press release stating this. What
does this mean for Greenpeace's efforts on dioxin. Also, what about
their efforts on endocrine disruption?
WASHINGTON (Aug. 1, 1:45 p.m. EDT) -- Falling donations are
pushing Greenpeace to close all 10 of its U.S. regional
offices andlay off 200 of its 300 U.S. employees by the end of
October, the environmental organization said.
Greenpeace?s toxics campaign, which includes its well-publicized
dioxin and "PVC -- The Poison Plastic" effort, will likely drop from
nine or 10 full-time staffers to five or six, said toxics campaigner
Rick Hind. The toxics effort will remain a priority, but the timing
and details of its restructuring have yet to be worked out, he said.
