The Greenpeace structure

We are increasingly seeing Corporations attempting to conflate independent Greenpeace entities as a means of attacking the entire Greenpeace network.  This is a potential risk for the Greenpeace network but one can be easily avoided by having a clear text on all Greenpeace websites explaining how the Greenpeace network is structured and who controls each part of the website. Such text needs to be findable by anyone looking for it.

See two text samples below we would really like to see on P4 to explain the structure of the Greenpeace network: 

==============================================================================

For Greenpeace National and Regional Offices (see New ZealandIndia as English examples, Canada in French, Mexico as Spanish:

Greenpeace is a network consisting of Greenpeace International and 27 independent national and regional Greenpeace organisations.

The content on each subsection of greenpeace.org/xxxxxx/ is published and managed by the relevant entity. Pages whose address begins with http://www.greenpeace.org/[NAME OF COUNTRY], for example, are under the editorial control of [NAME OF RESPONSIBLE ENTITY – CAN EITHER BE NRO AS A WHOLE, OR NATIONAL-LEVEL ENTITY OF REGIONAL NRO]. For questions, comments or other feedback, please contact the responsible Greenpeace entity. You can generally see at the top of each page which entity’s section you are on.

For the sake of convenience, we may refer to “Greenpeace” on this website when talking about either Greenpeace International or one of the national or regional Greenpeace organisations.
