BANGKOK, 11th May 2018 (NNT) - The Rainbow Warrior ship, owned by international environmental organization Greenpeace, will sail to the Gulf of Thailand and anchor near Samila Beach in Songkhla province from May 16th to 20th, 2018. Many activities will be arranged to accentuate the mission of the ship's first visit to Thailand. 

The journey is part of the "Rainbow Warrior Ship Tour 2018: 100% Renewable Energy for All" project. The objective is to amplify the voice of the Thai people calling for an end to the age of coal and demanding solutions through an inclusive and sustainable economic development model based on just, affordable, and sustainable renewable energy systems. 

On Samila Beach, there will be an exhibition on the impact of climate change, Greenpeace and the environmentalist movement, and the history of the Rainbow Warrior. Other activities will include games and a showcase of 1,000-watt solar energy kits. 

The ship will be open for public tours from May 17th to 20th. Each round will last 30 minutes, and is limited to 60 visitors. Shuttle boats will be provided for transportation, with each ride taking around 15 to 20 minutes from the beach to the ship. Admission will be free, but registrations are required. For more information, please visit greenpeace.or.th.

This boat should be a marine reef. It should be sunk and the crew forced to swim for

shore. Hypocrites all in the Green group.

Geezer

The French may well be interested to hear of this. Particularly the Direction Generale de la Securite Exterieure  who was declared responsible for blowing up the last Rainbow Warrior in Auckland Harbour 1985. It was in transit to protest the French nuclear tests on Muraroa atoll.

Is Thailand planning any nuclear tests I now wonder? What could possibly go wrong with that?

Wouldn't worry to much about this lot, they'll give up after getting stuck in the sea of plastic for a month.

A good cause but Piracy endangering life on the high seas has been a Death Penalty crime since ancient times. Whenever there dupes hassle me on the street with clipboards I give them the same as BKK “questionaire “ scammers. Pffft!!

 

I don’t need any more whale sashimi but who are they to demand the Japanese change their culture? (There are plenty of Minke whales by the way, and as there are “influential people” involved in the mineral extraction game here there stay is sure to be brief)

Mostly they’re putting thier own  lives in danger.

 

Japanese whaling exists to support a culture of government bureaucracy, and is not a part of Japanese culture.

Might as well call for overthrow of the Prayut government that is planning for an increase in use of coal for electrical generation. I'm surprised the junta allowed Greenpeace to enter Thai waters.

An organisation that always are breaking domestic and international laws with violence in the name of environment protection. They should not be allowed to enter.

And what about all those other organisations breaking all rules. Like Japan killing whales or big companies dumping toxic waste in oceans. They are the only ones trying to make a difference, as governments dont. You have any idea who many kill the oceans by wasting plastics in it?! There should be more greenpeaces ! You dont even know what they do and greenpeace is even bombed by governments !!

They are hypocrites because they are on a boat?  Did you notice the sails or was your frothing mouth obscuring your view?

Are you not concerned as to whether your family and descendents will live in an unpolluted, species-diverse world, or are you confident that big business will maintain the vigilance that is needed to ensure such a future.
