The government of India is still holding up Priya Pillai’s ability to leave the country. One India states the latest attempt at clamping down on her employer, Greenpeace, involves her signing a gag order prior to her traveling abroad. Not surprisingly, Pillai and Greenpeace are playing the victim card in all of this. Pillar states she has a right to express her opinion (true) but she and Greenpeace do not have a right to lie or conduct their activities which involve harm to others.
Greenepace demonstrates a flagrant disregard for the rights of humans since its end goal is the eradication of humans from the face of the Earth. The group is notorious for its opposition to bio tech foods (GMO’s) which have contributed to the starvation and deaths of hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people. The organization has also encouraged the destruction of private property such as their enlisting the help of a communist group in the Philippines to ravage a GMO research facility. Greenpeace has also actively opposes economic development in poor European and Third World countries. The group also lies about oil exploration affecting sea life in order to halt the extraction of fossil fuels and attempts to prevent fishing by reeling against techniques and mechanisms used in the practice.
When the Indian government asserts that Priva Pillai had her travel rights pulled for her involvement in anti-national activities, the above eco-terrorist campaigns Greenpeace has been involved in abroad might be what she personally did. Consequently, the government decided to make an example out of her in addition to scrutinizing the group’s tax status and banning Greenpeace from importing anymore people from abroad. If Priva Pillal’s claims of harassment and persecution were valid I would believe her and condemn India’s government. However, if the record of her employer’s campaigns of lies, manipulations and outright eco-terrorism against humans is any indication as well as the potential for Pillal to have participated in similar activities that are tantamount to humanitarian crimes, I can understand why the Indian government is doing what it is doing.
