Nazca no-no

Peru is seeking criminal charges against members of Greenpeace, who staged a publicity stunt on Monday intended for delegates from 190 countries attending U.N. climate talks being held in Lima. The government claims that the activists left footprints adjacent to the ancient Nazca lines after entering a prohibited area next to the figure of a hummingbird. They laid big yellow cloth letters reading, “Time for Change! The Future is Renewable.” The government does not disagree with the message. The issue is the way Greenpeace drew attention to it. Deputy Culture Minister Luis Jaime Castillo declares, "It’s a true slap in the face at everything Peruvians consider sacred."
