The group stretched for 30 kilometers and along the way, bikers stopped at Naraesuan Bridge to unveil a 12 x 2.2-metre banner. Boonsong Tanthani, the mayor of the province, also provided support for the event in his opening address. Thousands of people take to the streets in more than 30 countries across the globe to celebrate the Arctic and demand protection for this unique region of the world. The global public manifestation ‘Ice Ride’ is facilitated by Greenpeace and led forward by volunteers and partnering organisations. It comes just weeks after a global opinion poll revealed the vast majority in 30 countries on six continents support the idea of an Arctic Sanctuary in the international waters around the North Pole and wants the entire Arctic Ocean protected from oil drilling and destructive fishing.Locations:Phitsanulok-Southeast Asia-ThailandDate:4 Oct, 2014Credit:© Roengchai Kongmuang / GreenpeaceMaximum size:4000px X 2667pxKeywords:Actions and protests-Activists-Banners-Bicycles-Bridges-Climate (campaign title)-Crowds-Day-High angle view-KWCI (GPI)-Local population-Offshore drilling-Oil (Industry)-Outdoors-Public engagement-Save the Arctic (campaign title)Shoot:'Act for Arctic' Ice Ride in ThailandAs the Arctic sea ice reaches another historic low, thousands of people across the globe take to the streets to join in the Ice Ride, an arctic themed bicycle parade to celebrate the Arctic and to manifest the diverse and global demand for its protection as an Arctic Sanctuary.Rising global temperatures and the race for oil makes the Arctic one of the key battlegrounds of climate protection.
