Shoot: Action on Ukranian Ship Aristea Carrying Coal in Italy

GP01PHC
Activists from the Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise painted 'Quit Coal' and 'No Carbone' on the Ukrainian cargo ship Aristea, as it offloaded coal at the port of Genoa. Greenpeace called on the energy company Enel to shut down its coal-fired power plant in Genoa, in a series of actions. Enel is persisting in keeping the plant open, despite demands by the Ligurian regional government to shut it down immediately. The action is part of the Rainbow Warrior and Arctic Sunrise Quit Coal Tour through the Mediterranean and Europe. The tour, from Israel to Poland, takes place in the run-up to crucial UN climate negotiations in Poznan, Poland. Quitting coal will be essential to a meaningful deal to save the climate. European governments must show leadership by phasing-out coal in their own countries. "Coal is the single greatest threat facing our climate," said Agnes de Rooij, Greenpeace International climate campaigner.
