Greenpeace Clean Graffiti hits Hong Kong streets

Press release - 2009-09-21
Greenpeace urges Hong Kong’s drivers to step up for the climate tomorrow by walking, using public transport or even cycle to their destinations instead of using their vehicles on the World Carfree Day. Activists from the green group imprint watermarks by high-pressure steam which spells “Stop Driving, Save climate” on popular pavements namely the Central Government Offices East Wing, HSBC headquarter building, Revenue Tower, Sogo and Tsim Sha Tsui Ferry Pier to remind the public of the event.

為宣傳922無車日,綠色和平於全港多個地點進行獨一無二的洗街宣傳,當中包括政府總部門外。

To support the campaign, Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen will walk from Government House to Government Headquarters, a 500m-long distance. Greenpeace Campaigner Prentice Koo says, "It's his first step towards tackling climate change. We demand the Chief Executive to pledge delivering a climate change policy before the Copenhagen Conference."

As of September 21st, 54 organizations, 4 universities and 11 schools have pledged to support 9.22 Carfree Day. The President of Hong Kong University will switch from private car to walking; managerial staff of the Airport Authority will also use public transport to their offices in Lantau; Hong Kong Science & Technology Parks Corporation will arrange subtle buses for tenants; a bar in Causeway Bay will offer half price beer to echo the Car Free Day.
