In 1995 the Rainbow Warrior II headed to Moruroa with a huge flotilla when France announced it was resuming nuclear testing amidst a worldwide outcry. French commandos boarded the ship, smashed equipment and seized the vessel. Greenpeace activists were arrested, interrogated and deported. The flotilla continued the protest, but the end was in sight. A few months later, France finally responded to international outrage and stopped its nuclear testing programme.Locations:Aotearoa-Auckland-Auckland Harbour-Moruroa-OceaniaDate:10 Jul, 1985Credit:© GreenpeaceDuration:1m4sAudio format:Final MixProduction Type :WEB VIDEOKeywords:Actions and protests-Aggression-Arrests-Boarding actions-Confrontation-French Government-French navy-Greenpeace activists-Greenpeace crew-KWCI (GPI)-MV Rainbow Warrior-MY Rainbow Warrior II-Nuclear (campaign title)-Nuclear weapons testing-ViolenceShoot:Rainbow Warrior Bombing - Web VideosA series of six short videos telling the story of the Rainbow Warrior bombing in Auckland, New Zealand, in 1985. It was soon revealed the bombing was ordered by the French Government in an attempt to foil protests of its nuclear weapons testing in the Pacific. Twelve people were on board. Fernando Pereira, a Portugese photographer and father, was trapped in his cabin and drowned. Two French agents were arrested by New Zealand Police and pleaded guilty to charges of manslaughter and willful damage. They only served three years of their 10 year jail sentences.
