Khanom, Nakhon Si Thammarat, 23 September 2010—Students in the fishing boat waving the windsocks with a message that reads “ Unplug a Nuclear Future beside the Rainbow Warrior in Thong Ching bay in Nakhon Si Thammarat province 610 kilometers, South of Bangkok. Thong Ching Beach is one of the proposed sites for the construction of nuclear power plant. The province is known for the vast population of pink dolphins (Indo-Pacific hump-backed dolphins or Sousa chinensis).

The Greenpeace flagship Rainbow Warrior arrived yesterday in the province to join community movements clamoring for a future free of dangerous nuclear and coal power. Greenpeace is calling on the Thai government to get smart and phase out dirty coal and dangerous nuclear energy from the 2010 Power Development Plan, and instead invest in sustainable and long term solutions such as the massive uptake of renewable energy and the adoption of energy efficiency policies for a cleaner and greener future for the country.
