Communism Is Green

Communism infiltrated the environmental movement.

After the fall of communist regimes in Eastern Europe, many former communist party members established green parties. Green parties extended beyond environmental protection to include left-wing programs, such as social justice, feminism, anti-war activism, and pacifism. For instance, Marxist ideology heavily influenced the charter of Global Greens, an international environmental organization.

When former Soviet leader Gorbachev failed to re-enter politics, he switched to environmentalism and established Green Cross International. Gorbachev promoted a world government to prevent ecological disaster.

Other communist parties in the West exert tremendous influence over environmental-protection movements. For example, the co-founder of Australia’s green movement is a member of the Communist Party of Australia.

Communism Manipulates the Rhetoric

One communist strategy to exert influence across the world is to start mass movements. Environmental groups mobilize large numbers of people to lobby governments to enforce unreasonable agreements and regulations. Another tactic they use is creating violent incidents to silence the public.

Saul Alinsky trained groups in the art of control through mass manipulation. He taught them to hide their real purpose. “Remember: once you organize people around something as commonly agreed upon as pollution, then an organized people is on the move. From there it’s a short and natural step to political pollution,” Alinsky wrote (Rules for Radicals).

Many leftist groups use environmentalism as ideological packaging to carry out a revolution. In the United States, the environmentalism organizations include the Communist Party USA, Socialist Action, the Maoist Revolutionary Communist Party USA, the Ecological Society of America, the Socialist Workers Party, Socialist Alternative, the Democratic Socialists of America, etc. These groups hosted the People’s Climate March, parading with a sea of red flags through major American cities. They held placards with slogans like “Capitalism is killing the planet” and “Fight for a socialist future.”

With communist and socialist elements strengthening environmentalism, “green peace” made a full transition to the red revolution.


Environmentalism was radical from the beginning because of its communist connections. There are many branches of environmentalism. These include deep ecology, ecofeminism, social ecology, and bioregionalism. The most well-known include groups such as Earth First and Earth Liberation Front. These groups utilize destructive action to stop activities they consider damaging to the environment.

Earth First began in 1979. Its slogan is “No compromise in defense of Mother Earth!” The group targets logging operations, dam construction sites, and housing developments using “creative civil disobedience.” One of the group’s well-known tactics is tree-sitting. Members sit under or climb up trees to prevent logging. These operations attract leftists and anarchists to rebel against mainstream society.

In 1992, more radical members started a branch called the Earth Liberation Front (ELF). They adopted guerrilla tactics, particularly arson. In December 2000, ELF committed a series of crimes on Long Island, New York. They smashed windows and spray-painted graffiti. Also, they set fire to sixteen buildings in condominium development and four luxury homes. Their justification was that the houses were taking over forests and wetlands. While committing these crimes, ELF used the slogan, “If you build it, we will burn it.” [22]

In 2005, the FBI announced that environmental organizations were a severe threat to the United States. These organizations committed more than 1,200 crimes, causing tens of millions of dollars in property damage. [23] These actions exceed the limits of political protest. Communist ideology exploits hatred to turn environmentalists into terrorists.

Communism Is Greenpeace

Greenpeace began in 1971. It is the largest environmental organization, with offices in more than fifty countries and annual revenues of more than $350 million. It is also one of the more radical environmental organizations.

Greenpeace co-founder Paul Watson said: “The secret to Greenpeace’s success is the statement: It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true.” [24]

Patrick Moore, another co-founder, left Greenpeace after 15 years. He said Greenpeace took “a sharp turn to the political left.” It developed into an extremist organization that is hostile to any industrial activity. Greenpeace’s action is political, not environmental. [25]

In 2007, six Greenpeace members broke into a British coal power plant. They were sued for causing 30,000 British pounds of damage. They admitted to trying to shut down the plant. Still, they claimed they were preventing more significant damage to the environment. The court cleared the six of wrongdoing. Greenpeace won several other court cases, such as damaging a fighter jet and nuclear submarine equipment. [26]


Finally, radical organizations like Greenpeace use any method to achieve their goals. On this point, radical environmentalism is consistent with communism. Communism uses environmental crises to justify killing, arson, and robbery.

Greenpeace lawyers persuade juries to accept their criminal behavior as legitimate. Unfortunately, this only demonstrates the moral decline and abandonment of universal values, which is the goal of communism.
