01 October 2010 - A policeman walks between his squad and Greenpeace activists who have blocked the gates of Map Ta Phut Industrial Estate's Office after installing a Countdown Clock with the message 'Time is running out' as part of a community protest, led by the Eastern People's Network, to demand an end to dirty development and the pollution nightmare in Rayong Province, 220KM East of Bangkok, Thailand. The activists are wearing face masks to illustrate the toxicity of the emissions from the industrial estate.
