On the first anniversary of typhoon Haiyan around 500 Filipinos form a human banner of the Philippine flag symbolizing the growing national movement that is demanding for climate justice, on behalf of the thousands who died in the disaster and the millions displaced by the extreme weather events like typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan). They vowed to hold big polluters accountable for climate change impacts. Greenpeace and partner groups are urging the Philippine government to phase out all dirty fossil fuel based energy systems and instead develop and mainstream renewable based energy sources to mitigate further climate change impacts.
