Greenpeace launches project to protect Citarum River

Greenpeace called on the government of Indonesia to take immediate action to curb pollution of freshwater sources at the launch of a public campaign to protect the Citarum River. The launch of the Greenpeace Toxic Free Water project entitled “Citarum Nadi Ku, Mari Rebut Kembali” (Let’s Take Back Our Citarum), coincided with the release of a public opinion poll conducted by LP3ES that estimates that 81% of people in and around Bandung agree that industries should stop polluting Western Java’s most important freshwater source.
