What did Greenpeace expect?

When a Greenpeace contingent arrived in Ketchikan on their 237-foot yacht, complete with helicopter and speedboats, their reception was cool except among a few local environmentalists. Greenpeace's representative in Alaska, Melanie Duchin of Anchorage, said: "As an Alaskan and an American, I'm shocked at the way Ketchikan has reacted to our visit. The city's attempts to silence us are not typical of Alaskans, and they will not prevent us from continuing on with this tour or our efforts to protect the nation's endangered forests."
