GPSEA Delivered Solar Powered Lantern to the Senate

In line with the celebration of third annual Global Day of Climate Action on Saturday, December 6, Greenpeace supporters and allies here in the Philippines today delivered a giant solar-powered lantern to the senate house at the CCP Complex Roxas Boulevard in Pasay City.

Greenpeace supporters also delivered miniature 'parols' made from biodegradable materials-from Albay in Bicol- to each of the senators. Judy Cruz-Malabanan of Greenpeace Supporters Services said that, "It would be ideal if we have some supporters who can join us because this delivery of miniature parols is symbolic of our supporters' participation in our struggle to get the RE Law passed." The lanterns also served as Greenpeace appreciations to the Philippine Senate for passing the Renewable Energy Bill last October 7, 2008. Likewise, the miniature 'parols' served as a reminder to them to really support Renewable Energy and forget about nukes and coal.

The event is also a culminating activity of Greenpeace for Renewable Energy Campaign.

The Renewable Energy Bill is expected to be signed into law by President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo next week.
