Join Greenpeace with action AGAINST Trump

Right now a climate change denier is getting comfy behind the grand desk in the Oval Office - with cash to spend and a pen poised to sign new laws.

Donald Trump will lead the one of the most powerful countries in the world for at least four years. He's threatened our planet and he's threatened Muslims, women and countless others. That's why there's absolutely no way I'm going to sit and watch the Donald Trump show on the sidelines.

2016 has shown that Greenpeace needs to stand stronger than ever in all of the 55 countries we work in. Just last week, Greenpeace activists and a victim of Hurricane Sandy disrupted the confirmation hearing of oil-exec Rex Tillerson, making international news.

I'm hoping that like our friends in the USA, you'll be prouder and bolder than ever to stand up for what you believe in. So if you believe in building bridges, not walls, if you believe that creatures on this planet matter more than the cash on it & that people matter more than profit, I'm asking you to take action like never before. Here's what you can do.
