Greenpeace decides to work with skeleton staff following ED raid: Climate change will "suffer"

Greenpeace India said it has decided to reduce its "core strength" to 20-25 people following the Enforcement Directorate’s freezing of its accounts. In a statement, Diya Deb, its Campaign Director, said, “We do not understand the reason for this continuous and relentless harassment against the organisation. This is not an attack on just Greenpeace India, but on the choices of thousands of Indians, who are supporting the fight against climate change."
Greenpeace India’s bank accounts were frozen following a raid by the Enforcement Directorate at the organisation’s Bangalore office on October 5, 2018. On November 5, the Karnataka High Court ordered the ED to expedite the investigation against Greenpeace India and allowed the organisation to access its accounts on furnishing a bank guarantee of Rs 50 lakh.
"With this kind of arrangement, the organisation’s funds stand to run dry and requires the organisation to cut-down on its operations and staff massively", a Greenpeace statement said, without specifying its current staff strength.
