Spy Cables: Greenpeace’s Kumi Naidoo Targeted by Intelligence Agencies as “Security” Threat
http://democracynow.org – Al Jazeera has obtained leaked diplomatic cables showing a number of foreign requests to South African intelligence to spy on activists, NGOs and politicians. One document shows South Korea sought out a “specific security assessment” of Greenpeace International Executive Director Kumi Naidoo in the run-up to a meeting of G20 leaders in Seoul in 2010. The disclosure is among scores contained in leaks to Al Jazeera by a South African intelligence source. From South Africa, we speak with Kumi Naidoo. “We are winning the [climate change] argument, and those trying to hold us back are getting desperate,” Naidoo says.
