Our Handmade Blouses “Boats” made from organic cotton was there with the rainbow warrior ship! 🙂 Greenpeace’s historic ship is in our country as part of the United for Climate.Its presence in Greece (12-22 June) aims to support the action of local communities against extraction hydrocarbons and to highlight their connection with the problem of the climate crisis we are facing.
“For at least 30 years, scientists have been warning of the worst effects of climate change. Today, on the eve of the climate crisis, we have the last chance to change. It is time for political leaders to rise to the occasion and take bold and binding measures to protect life on the planet. “This is a time when we all need to unite, listen to the voice of scientists and take action,” said Kostis Grimanis, head of the climate justice campaign at Greenpeace’s Greek office.
Rainbow Warrior will travel to Kefalonia, Patras and Corfu offering a platform for citizens’ initiatives, productive & social organizations, organizations and local government to come together, to share domestic and international experience, common goals and ideas for the next steps of mobilization.
