No to BNPP! (stupid Arroyo and Cojuanco)

Dear Greenpeace activists,

Last Sunday, Greenpeace volunteers, supporters and our partners from the Network Opposed to BNPP formed a human banner to say: "NO to BNPP" at the Sunken Garden of the University of the Philippines.

We are really grateful to those who came and gave their time in executing our effort to oppose the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant.

I'm writing you right now to ask for your help in challenging our lawmakers to withdraw their endorsement of the House Bill proposing to revive the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant. It is a dangerous legislation: nuclear power is the most unsafe and most expensive source of electricity in the world.

The nuclear bill is being railroaded in Congress. Cong. Mark Cojuangco (the author of the bill) and his ally Cong. Mikey Arroyo have already gathered 193 signatures from fellow representatives--most of whom are probably not aware of the dangers of nuclear power, or the infirmities of the of the proposed bill, in form and substance.

The names of these congress representatives are listed on our website, along with their email and fax numbers. Join us in telling our lawmakers that dangerous nuclear energy is not at all a solution to climate change and energy security. Our lawmakers should face the truth about nuclear power and withdraw their signatures from the dangerous legislation to revive the BNPP. And, if they are opting for a more critical and precautionary approach let them know that their efforts are appreciated.

We have observed the undue haste for this measure to be approved by sheer numbers in Congress so please, take this call to action as a matter of great urgency.

Help us say no to nukes and yes to renewable energy.
