The GreenPeace ship Rainbow Warrior (|||) has been surfing the edges of our South African landmass for some days now, and docks in Durban this week. Arriving as news of the spy cables involving South Africa and especially the monitoring of Greenpeace’s Kumi Naidoo, listed as a ‘dangerous person‘.
The Rainbow Warrior is the third iteration, funded through crowdsourcing in an innovative program that saw donors having their names included on the ship and a webcam broadcasting the build. DurbanKnights have three chances to board the vessel, meet the people travelling the world’s seas and check out things for themselves.
Remember that on entering a port, its necessary to have identification with you, since the port is technically international space.
