Greenpeace Ejected from MacExpo

Environmental activist group Greenpeace was ejected from London's Mac Expo yesterday, after various other exhibitors complained about the group's activities at the show.

The group had purchased a small booth with contract terms to only hand out leaflets within their assigned area and to not take photographs at other stands. The Register got in touch with MacExpo marketing director Matt Denton who said "It was a valid stand with a valid message... they breached their contract."

Greenpeace does not deny having passed out fliers beyond their booth, but insists that the reaction was "over the top" in a statement to MacRumors. Greenpeace is vowing to return to the expo tomorrow to continue their 'Green my Apple' campaign.

Greenpeace recently rated Apple the 4th worst tech company in their guide to greener electronics.
