Rainbow Warrior

Date: 1/8/2005

Greenpeace is preparing its first purpose-built boat at shipyards of Bremen, Northern Germany. But at the Fassmer yard on the banks of the river Weser a different kind of £16 million (NZ $32 million) dream boat is taking shape. The ship’s launch date is to coincide with the anniversary of the bombing of the first Rainbow Warrior. It was sunk in Auckland, New Zealand, by two bombs attached to its hull by French secret agents.
