I don’t think I’ve ever felt actually honored to write a blog, but today I am. Watching the video below, I’ve been quite overwhelmed by the urgency of so many environmental issues – issues that not only slowly destroy our planet, but put young innocent lives at risk.

Ten years ago, Greenpeace South-East Asia was founded. Last month, they held a memorial for Crizel.

We’re opening more and more regional offices in developing countries – the latest, Greenpeace Africa, works in South Africa and the Democratic Republic of the Congo – where the attitude of western countries and companies seems to be “out of sight, out of mind”. We need to eradicate this attitude, and we need your help to do this.

I hope that one day, stories of toxic pollution will only belong in history books – and that Crizel’s story won’t be forgotten.


Update: Butch, the ship's nurse at that time, wrote a comment below. I recommend reading it.
