support Greenpeace and buy the Amchitka double CD

 

This concert at the Pacific Coliseum in British Columbia on October 16 1970 was organized by the late Irving Stowe, co-founder of Greenpeace. The artists, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor and Phil Ochs  waived their fees and $18,000 was raised to send 11 peace activists on a fishing boat renamed ‘The Greenpeace’ to protest nuclear bomb tests on the Aleutian Island of Amchitka off the coast of Alaska in 1971. The tests were eventually cancelled and the voyage put Greenpeace on the world map. This new 2 CD disc collection comes with a 48 page booklet with never before seen black and white shots from the concert, photos of the Amchitka voyage and photos of modern day Greenpeace activities.
