Anti nuclear protest in Bangkok

Unplug a Nuclear Future…Greenpeace International,  by jmckeati – September 24, 2010 That was the message Greenpeace sent to the Thai government this week on Thong Ching Beach. Hundreds of people representing communities opposed to nuclear power plant together with crew from the Greenpeace flagship Rainbow Warrior placed windsocks to form the shape of a pink dolphin, beside a banner that reads “Unplug a nuclear future,” in Thong Ching Beach, Nakhon Si Thamarat province, 610 kilometers south of Bangkok. Thong Ching Beach is one of the proposed sites for the construction of a nuclear power plant. The province is known for its 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 clamouring 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.
