AUCKLAND (Eyes Of Fire/Pacific Media Watch): Several crew members on the bombed Greenpeace environmental campaign ship Rainbow Warrior live in New Zealand today and have talked to AUT University television and journalism students about their experiences three decades ago and the future. Four of the nine crew live on the island of Waiheke in Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf and other original crew members also live in Auckland. More than 40 students from the School of Communication Studies television and journalism majors and the Pacific Media Centre have teamed up with Little Island Press to track down and interview some of these veteran activists for the Eyes of Fire project. Little Island Press is republishing a fresh edition of David Robie’s 1986 book, Eyes of Fire, to mark the 30th anniversary of the Rainbow Warrior bombing by French secret agents on 10 July 1985. The publisher has set up a collaborative microsite about the bombing and the Rainbow Warrior’s humanitarian voyage to Rongelap Atoll in the Marshall islands to help a community suffering from the health legacy of US atmospheric nuclear tests to move to a safer atoll, Mejato, on Kwajalein. In the latest rolling content posted on the Eyes Of Fire microsite, studio video interviews with several people involved have been published.
