The Philippine government has given the go-signal for the development of an unprecedented number of coal power projects across the nation. Coal, the dirtiest source of fossil fuel, is one of biggest contributors to climate change. These dirty and polluting coal power plants pose serious health, environmental and economic risks to Filipinos, especially to host communities that will directly bear the burden of their operation and impacts.

Greenpeace, along with anti-coal communities from all over the country have banded together to raise their opposition to coal, reassert their rights to a safe and healthy environment, and to demand that the government reverse all coal projects immediately.

May we invite you to attend our press conference to further discuss the environmental hazards, health, and economic impacts of coal plants. This event is part of the whole day National Anti-Coal Summit, to be attended by 40 representatives of anti-coal communities from Luzon, Visayas & Mindanao. Guest speakers include Von Hernandez, Executive Director for Greenpeace Southeast Asia, and Naderev SaƱo, Commissioner on Climate Change Commission.
