GPSEA To Join Hundreds Who Will Stand Up Against BNPP on Sunday

The Greenpeace South East Asia will join hundreds who will make a difference this Sunday February 22, 2009 at Sunken Garden, University of the Philippines in Diliman Quezon City.

It could be remembered that the Philippine Congress recently proposed a House Bill to restore the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant (BNPP).

"Nuclear power is the most dangerous and most expensive source of electricity. And it is not the solution to climate change."

This coming Sunday GPSEA will say NO TO BNPP by creating human banner as a symbol of solidarity with the people of Bataan.



The visual images of human banner will also serve as a solidarity message to the people of Bataan who will have a mass action on February 23 in Balanga. This action shall likewise serve as a statement of GPSEA's position on the proposal by Rep. Mark Cojuangco when the Committee on Appropriations House of Representatives meets on this legislative measure for the third time on February 24.

<"More than 30 volunteers planted an 8-foot tall tombstone with the words "R.I.P. BNPP" at the entrance of the Philippine House of Representatives compound in Batasan Hills. The activity was meant to send a message to lawmakers not to revive the mothballed Bataan Nuclear Power Plant and not to pursue the path of nuclear power which Greenpeace contends is grotesquely expensive and based on faulty economics."
