Free-Market Group Condemns Greenpeaces Campaign Against Mercury Paper - Wal-Mart and Kmart Urged Not to Cave to Greenpeace
Americans for Prosperity Virginia (AFP-VA) today blasted Greenpeace USA for its relentless attacks against Virginia families and jobs in its campaign to shutter Mercury Paper and blackmail their partner companies from buying Paseo towels and bath tissue. Working with its partners in the White House and the Democrats on the Capitol Hill, Greenpeace is waging a war against low-cost household products made by hard working Virginians. Most importantly, however, is the Greenpeace and other environmentalists campaign to kill American jobs at a time when further job losses can be least afforded in the U.S. In fact, the Greenpeace action directly threatens more than 150 jobs in Virginia alone.
