With the images still fresh in our heads, we went out to the wet grass, to light candles. Right after watching, Zero Hour: Disaster at Chernobyl, we went out and lit 2,000 candles to remember those who’ve been affected by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

Greenpeace activists gathered outside the main gate of the ASEAN+3 Summit venue in Thailand. They were there to highlight that it’s time for the government leaders meeting at the summit turn the current financial crisis into an opportunity for addressing runaway climate change.
