Accused of eco-manslaughter

The Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), one of America's most venerable and respected civil rights groups, has accused Greenpeace of "eco-manslaughter".   The reason is Greenpeace’s support for international policies limiting development and the expansion of technology to the developing world's poor. 

"But well-fed eco-fanatics shriek 'Frankenfoods' and 'genetic pollution,' " CORE said in a statement announcing their intention to confront Greenpeace. 

"They threaten sanctions on nations that dare to grow genetically modified crops, to feed their people or replace crops that have been wiped out by insects and blights. They plan to spend $175 million battling biotech foods over the next five years. Not a penny of this money will go to the starving poor."
