Too much of nothing

In India, more than 200 Greenpeace India workers will work for free for the whole of June, after the government froze the organisation’s bank accounts on 9 April, leaving it unable to pay expenses or wages.

The attack began in June 2014, when all funding coming from Greenpeace International was frozen. The ministry of home affairs says Greenpeace India should not be allowed to obstruct development.

As PN went to press, Delhi high court was due to rule on the group’s finances on 26 May.
