A Greenpeace volunteer attaches pinwheels and banners at the gate of the Philippine House of Representatives in Quezon City. The pinwheels contained the names of the people who signed the online petition which rejects the proposal for nuclear power in the country and instead enable massive uptake of renewable energy. The measure to revive the BNPP, was proposed in July 2008 Early this year in January. It hurdled the House Committee on Energy without due consideration to concerns about the bill?s many faults. The proposal passed the Committee on Rules last week. It is now in the order of business in Congress, which means that it will most likely be taken up in plenary in the next two weeks, raising serious concerns that the bill will be railroaded before the House adjourns on June 5.
