Greenpeace takes action against a Laguna Lake Polluter

Photo | September 20, 2012

Greenpeace activists painted the fence of TNC Chemicals Philippines Inc. with the words “Water Polluter” in Calamba, Laguna. They also unfurled a banner listing the different hazardous chemicals previously identified in a sampling report by the organization as the recipe for the toxic pollution in Laguna Lake. The labelling of TNC’s facility was part of the series of activities highlighting industrial pollution under Greenpeace’s “Right-to-Know Water Patrol Expedition”. The expedition, launched this month, aims to expose water polluters, investigate and document potential polluters along Marikina River and Laguna Lake, and draw support for the enactment of policies to bring down toxic pollution to zero levels.
