Today I joined my counterparts, Isa and Hikmat, the media officers of the Thailand and Indonesia offices of Greenpeace Southeast Asia, at a Greenpeace activity at the ASEAN Summit in Pattaya, Thailand. Neung, was the media officer, while Hikmat and I, as well as some others, were there to support the team. (Earlier we had attended a nuclear campaign skillshare led by Jan and Aslihan from Greenpeace International. They shared their experiences about the ongoing campaign in various countries in Europe.)
Anyway, our Greenpeace team was in Pattaya to deliver a message to the ASEAN leaders attending the summit that nuclear power is a waste of money and that their governments should instead put investments in renewables which are the real solution to climate change.
We were able to get in at the main entrance of the venue, where we launched a globe balloon, and displayed a banner with the message “Not nuclear, money for renewables. Climate action now!” A Thai delegate received the letter brought by our Thailand Campaign Manager, Tara.
We hope our governments get (and listen) to the message!
If they don’t–well, we’ll be back….hehehe
