Water Patrol activists dressed in hazmat suits gather water samples and put a sign post at Noah Paper mills Inc marking the company as a source of toxic pollution in the Marikina river. The sign reads "Toxics in our Water? We have the right to know". The activists have paddled on twelve boats along the Marikina river to investigate and document possible water pollution. Greenpeace is calling on the government to require factories to disclose the chemical waste water that they discharge into the rivers, as part of a campaign to protect the country's freshwater sources.
