Towed into a dry dock, the damage from the two bombs planted by the French agents was obvious. The ship was repaired for the voyage to her final resting place offered by the Maori tribe Ngati Kuri, in Matauri Bay, off the east coast of Northland. She is now part of the marine ecosystem and has become a popular dive destination. The original Rainbow Warrior has been replaced twice. The third Rainbow Warrior – the first purpose-designed boat for Greenpeace – was launched in 2011. Primarily a sailing vessel, she is a showcase of environmental technology, and will be Greenpeace’s premier campaigning vessel for the next 25 years.Locations:Aotearoa-Auckland-Auckland Harbour-Matauri Bay-OceaniaDate:10 Jul, 1985Credit:© GreenpeaceDuration:1m6sAudio format:Final MixProduction Type :WEB VIDEOKeywords:Artificial reefs-Diving-French Government-Greenpeace ships-KWCI (GPI)-MV Rainbow Warrior-MY Rainbow Warrior III-Nuclear (campaign title)-Nuclear weapons testing-Underwater shotsShoot: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.
