GREENPEACE at the WORLD ENERGY CONGRESS

Video | September 12, 2010

About 60 Greenpeace activists in oil-covered bathing suits staged a "Black Tide Beach Party" today to tell participants at the World Energy Congress (WEC) in Montreal that there is an urgent need for the world to move beyond dirty, risky oil and develop more green, renewable energy to combat climate change. In addition to the oily bathing suit event, Greenpeace and 27 other organizations organized a rally of hundreds of activists outside the Montreal Convention Centre to greet the 5,000 participants from government, industry, international organizations, universities and energy industry associations at the opening of the congress today. The activists held banners calling for the congress to "Go Beyond Oil."
