Turn the Tide Rainbow Warrior Tour of Southeast Asia

Turn the Tide and make a difference!

From September to December 2010, the Greenpeace flagship Rainbow Warrior is sailing to Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines for the Turn the Tide – Rainbow Warrior’s tour of Southeast Asia.

This year, the Rainbow Warrior is calling for change through action.  Climate change is the greatest threat that our region and the whole world faces today.  But each one of us can be part of the solution!

During her voyage, the Rainbow Warrior will promote climate change solutions by showcasing renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions in Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines – and expose how coal-fired power plants and deforestation are worsening the global problem of climate change.

The Rainbow Warrior will urge governments to take immediate and decisive action to combat climate change-- and is calling on you to help make that positive change happen!

Be a part of the history of environmental action in Southeast Asia!

Turn the Tide – Rainbow Warrior’s tour of Southeast Asia  will be packed with adventure and exciting events.  The tour will feature on-board and quayside activities, exhibits, fora, concerts, and classic high-profile Greenpeace campaigns in various stops around the region.  You can join us online or offline (details at the back of this brochure).

The Rainbow Warrior

There will come a time when the Earth grows sick, and when it does a tribe will gather from all the cultures of the World who believe in deeds and not words.  They will work to heal it...they will be known as the ‘Warriors of the Rainbow.’

The Rainbow Warrior, whose name was inspired by Northern American Indian mythology, has had a long and colourful history of campaigning for positive change for the planet.  Her deck has been graced by celebrities, religious and political leaders, royalty, and rock bands.  She has challenged environmental crimes, relocated the population of a South Pacific Island contaminated by radiation, provided disaster relief to victims of the 2004 Tsunami in South East Asia, and sailed against new coal plants, whaling, war, climate change, and other environmental crimes on every ocean of the world.

Arguably, the Rainbow Warrior's greatest moments were in her decades-long struggle to end nuclear weapons testing in the Pacific.  Despite being rammed, bombed, and subject to every form of intimidation and opposition imaginable, she carried on the fight for a nuclear-free Pacific.
