Coal Demons Action in Manila

Photo | January 1, 2013

Dozens of 'coal demons' (Greenpeace activists painted black) dance to drum beats in front of the Asia Development Bank (ADB) in Metro Manila, during the second day of the bank's 7th Annual Clean Energy meeting, carrying the message 'Dirty Coal: More Fun In The Philippines; Thanks To DOE and ADB'. Greenpeace is demanding the Department of Energy (DOE) to abandon coal projects and instead ensure the immediate full implementation of the Renewable Energy (RE) Law. Greenpeace is also calling on the ADB to support the RE initiatives of its member countries by ensuring that investments go to RE development rather than fraudulent technology such as carbon capture and storage (CCS). As an institutional funding agency, the ADB plays a significant role in spurring RE investments in their member countries in support of sustainable development initiatives, such as the Philippines' RE Law.
