Maasim, Sarangani Province, 20 November 2010 – Around 1,000 villagers from Maasim, Sarangani in Mindanao, the Philippines’ deep south, form the words “No to Coal” on the grounds of a local elementary school. The community was joined by Greenpeace volunteers and crew from the Greenpeace flagship Rainbow Warrior. The Rainbow Warrior arrived in Mindanao yesterday for its “Turn the Tide” tour of Southeast Asia, to join thousands of Sarangani folk as they sought to ‘knock out’ coal and broadcast their rejection of dirty coal power. Conal Holdings Corp is planning to build a coal plant in Maasim municipality to the detriment of the health and livelihoods of surrounding communities. Greenpeace is supporting communities in Southeast Asia in their struggle against coal and is calling for the massive uptake of clean, renewable energy with an Energy [R]evolution.
