Dutch State Greenpeace complains to think ahead because of conflict over use of campaign logo and slogan "Think Forward" of the Interior.

The Dutch Government wants to stop Greenpeace Netherlands using public campaign 'Think Next'. In this campaign, the public that disaster plans are not only the public can prepare. Today, when the Amsterdam court in summary proceedings of the Dutch government against Greenpeace over the alleged misuse of the "Think Forward" logo and slogan by Greenpeace. The outstanding environmental campaign in recent months with their own ads and an action. They had the message that some disasters, such as climate disasters and nuclear disasters, indeed can be prevented if there is forward thinking.

The "Think Forward" campaign of the government includes a television game. This is a banner over a river with the text "this river flooded on January 12, followed by a banner on a building that says" this mall closes on December 19 because of a gifwolk. The spots and its website, the government wants to warn the public that did not prevent disasters, but that they can prepare for the consequences: 'Think Next'.

Greenpeace takes this suggestion to heart and the government also thinks ahead. "If there is no nuclear plant is built in the Netherlands can no nuclear disaster caused by an accident or attack," says Joris Thijssen, climate and energy expert of Greenpeace. "Some disasters are so perfect, but then the current government of CDA and VVD also forward thinking. That does not work on new nuclear plants, but it is precisely investment in clean energy as possible. No terrorist will be a plane in a wind invliegen. Unfortunately, CDA and VVD only a demolition policy on clean energy effect. "

The environmental organization's "Think Forward" ideas reinforced by action at the Ministry of Housing and advertisements in national newspapers. That was very successful. After the elections of November 22, there is no room for a new majority Dutch nuclear power plant. Next step is to include the risk of disasters on climate disasters such as very extreme weather and floods. This can be done by the CO2 pollution of our air reduction. The Greenpeace Energy Revolution Senario shows that smarter to deal with energy and clean energy use to climate change can be halted without the light off.

Greenpeace believes that the mockery of "Think Forward" campaign is a form of expression that should not be prohibited by a court. For a well-functioning democracy it is necessary that independent organizations such as Greenpeace government to denounce. This position is also confirmed by case law. The European Court of Human Rights has established that both press and non-governmental organizations such as Greenpeace, the role of 'public watchdog' and therefore deserve extra space when it comes to the right to freedom of expression.

The government relies in this appeal on the trademark and copyright law and believes that Greenpeace has infringed them. Legally, this seems a difficult position to defend because the government only after the action and ads from Greenpeace the "Think Forward" slogan and logo on its name to register. In addition, Greenpeace used the "Think Forward" campaign is not for commercial purposes, but only to prevent disasters. Thijssen: 'It's too crazy for words that people call the government to think ahead and then a court action if there are indeed citizens think ahead! "
