Meet Your New Webbie For The Pacific Tour by fierymary

From the Greenpeace Australia Pacific Blog

Hello! My name is Mary Ann and I am from the Philippines. As I write this, we are sailing over the big blue expanse of the Pacific Ocean.

It has been more than 12 years since I first got involved with Greenpeace. Way back in 1990, I first read about Greenpeace on a register at the National Library. There was a picture of a GP inflatable confronting a whaling ship. That struck me very deeply, I thought wow these guys were really out there at the forefront!

The Bacolod and Iloilo leg of the Philippine leg of the Asia Energy Revolution was a blast as Ala Paredes joined the crew onboard the Rainbow Warrior. Saving the planet is as much fun as saying “barnacles” ala-Mr. Crabs of Spongebob Squarepants fame. We’re fortunate to have a glimpse of Ala’s story in a blogumentary she wrote while sailing onboard the ship. It’s an excellent account of her six days as a volunteer. We won’t give you all the details, of course but we’ve published some extracts below. Still, we highly recommend you read through her blog: Ala has the gift of making you live her experience through her writing.
