Greenpeace activists this morning shut down the port of BLCP coal plant to prevent the unloading of Australian coal into Thailand. Amidst heavy police and stick wielding BLCP personnel presence, activists chained themselves at bumpers of the dock and hung banners that read "clean energy now". The coal plant, which is jointly owned by Banpu and Hong-Kong based China Light and Power Corp, is scheduled for its grand opening next month.
