Greenpeace calls for full public disclosure on chemical discharges from factories

“We have the right to know what’s in our water!” Greenpeace demanded at the launch of the 3-week “Right-to-Know” Water Patrol Expedition along Marikina River. The expedition, which travels for 85 kilometers for three weeks, will examine and document sources of toxic pollution from Marikina River all the way to Laguna Lake during the month of September. At the launch, thirty Water Patrol Activists in twelve boats investigated and documented possible water pollution hotspots along Calumpang, Marikina. Greenpeace is calling on the government to require factories to disclose the chemical wastewater that they discharge into rivers, as part of a campaign to protect the country’s freshwater sources.
