On October 17 we’re raising our fists and our voices to RESIST COAL! RESIST EMERGENCY POWERS! On the National Day of Action Against Coal – under the Reclaim Power Pilipinas banner, our country’s contribution to the Global Week of Action on Energy there will be a concerted mass action nationwide as communities denounce coal as a dirty and harmful energy source.

Locally, we’ll let the President know that COAL IS NOT THE SOLUTION TO THE POWER CRISIS. We’ll let PNOY and Petilla know that we demand RE-al SOLUTIONS FOR THE PEOPLE AND COMMUNITIES NOW!

Our message:

EMERGENCY POWER IS NOT A SOLUTION. The Emergency power will only pave the way for more coal-fired power plants and coal mining. For instance, they are looking into rehabilitating the 300 MW Thermal Plant in Pilila, Rizal that could be fed with coal. Also, an abuse of the emergency power can lead the way to removing all obstacles to hasten coal-fired power plant construction, stemming from Sec. Petilla’s constant blame toward the people for resisting the 600 MW Redondo Peninsula coal project in Subic.)

Together with the rest of the world, we’ll make our stand that COAL IS NOT CLEAN, COAL IS NOT CHEAP, COAL KILLS and that the EMERGENCY POWER WILL LOCK US INTO DECADES OF COAL DEPENDENCY!
