If it had been within your power to prevent the Prestige oil spill, would you have taken a moment to do so? We can't undo the damage of the Prestige, but we may be able to stop the next disastrous spill.
A Greenpeace activist inspects the spilled crude oil from the sunken Prestige tanker.
We can't give you the details at the moment, but Greenpeace
is taking action now to prevent yet another disaster like the
one that is still unfolding off the Spanish, Portuguese, and French
coasts. Our campaigners are on their way, some of them the same
activists who witnessed the ecological devastation from the
Prestige spill and who helped with the cleanup in Spain. Sickened
by what they saw, they're making sure that another avoidable
accident doesn't happen.
