Greenpeace activists have been arrested after painting an anti-Fonterra slogan on a ship in New Plymouth.
It was another protest against the importing of palm based animal feed.
There may be bio security issues with imported feed which could be a legitimate target for protest.
Whether palm plantations are the environmental problem Greenpeace believes they are is a moot point.
But if the protesters were really concerned about the environmental impacts they’d be targeting the companies and people who buy the many products which use palm oil rather than Fonterra which imports a small amount of the waste product, palm kernel extract.
