Dozens of 'coal demons' dance to drum beats in front of the Asia Development Bank (ADB) in Metro Manila, during the second day of the bank's 7th Annual Clean Energy meeting, carrying the message 'Dirty Coal: More Fun In The Philippines; Thanks To DOE & ADB”'. Greenpeace is demanding the Department of Energy (DOE) to abandon coal projects and instead ensure the immediate full implementation of the Renewable Energy (RE) Law.
