Ancient Forests Advert Greenpeace UK
How would you feel is your home was torn down around you? Sir David Attenborough, Ewan McGregor and Andy Serkis lend their talents to this illustation of how forest communities are suffering precisely this fate as a result of illegal and destructive logging. Directed by Julien Temple. Winner of a special jury award at the International Forest Film Festival 2011. http://www.jhfestival.org/forestfestival/index.htm
Clean Up Coca-Cola
Greenpeace volunteers clean up the plastic pollution around the Cooks River, Sydney on Clean Up Australia day 2013. Scientists estimate that over a quarter of plastic pollution in our oceans comes from the beverage industry. Yet, by adding a refundable 10c to each bottle we can dramatically increase recycling and reduce plastic waste. South Australia already has a scheme where over 80% of bottles are recycled, more than twice the rate of other states. Recently Coca-Cola took the Northern Territory Government to court and stopped a 10c 'Cash for Containers' scheme. Take action now, ask your MP to stand up to Coca-Cola and support a national 'Cash for Containers' scheme: https://www.greenpeace.org.au/action/?cid=38&src=YT1
The bombing of the Rainbow Warrior in 1985
30 years ago on the 10 July 1985, the Rainbow Warrior prepares to lead a flotilla of ships from New Zealand to Moruroa to peacefully protest against French nuclear testing. French agents bomb and sink the Rainbow Warrior in Auckland harbour, killing Greenpeace photographer Fernando Pereira. Narrated by Captain Peter Wilcox.
Wind and solar energy is growing in India
Today coal accounts for approximately 57% of India's total energy consumption and is responsible for 67% of India's increased carbon emissions. But renewable energy alternatives are growing rapidly throughout the country. Solar technology, wind power and other natural resources sources have been utilised to produce electricity, bringing power to those who would otherwise be without. The abundance of natural resources in India uncover its potential as a world leader in renewable energy and prove that increased coal exports from Australia are unjustified and harmful.

Stop Coca-Cola trashing Australia
Coca-Cola is blocking a recycling scheme. Take action, http://bit.ly/stoptrashingaus_yt, ask your MP to support a national 'Cash for Containers' scheme. In March, Coca-Cola won its court case to stop a popular and proven 10 cent recycling refund scheme in the Northern Territory -- a program that has already doubled recycling rates in the territory, and operated successfully in South Australia for over 30 years saving tens of millions of plastic containers from ending up in our beaches and oceans. This loose rubbish is estimated to affect up to 65% of Australian seabirds. Some mistake the plastic for food. When they swallow too much, their tiny stomachs become so full they're unable to ingest any food -- literally starving to death on a full stomach.

Eyes On The Reef
The Great Barrier Reef is the worlds largest coral reef system and one of the most diverse and rich ecosystems on the planet. The Australian and Queensland Governments are giving coal companies permission to dig up coal and ship it out through the Great Barrier Reef. The threats to the Great Barrier Reef are already in place with climate change warming and acidifying the ocean - to put more pressure on this fragile and delicate natural jewel is unthinkable.

Rang-tan: The Dirty Palm Oil Story
Sign the petition now to end dirty palm oil! https://act.gp/stop-deforestation Rang-tan's forest home is being destroyed to clear the way for palm oil - an ingredient used to make products for brands like Unilever, Mondelez and Nestlé. If we don't act, more precious habitats will be ruined; Indigenous Peoples could lose their homes, and Rang-tan and her species could be lost forever. Lyrics: There's a Rang-tan in my bedroom and I don't know what to do. She plays with all my teddies and keeps borrowing my shoe. She destroys all of my house plants and she keeps on shouting 'oo'. She throws away my chocolate and she howls at my shampoo. There's a Rang-tan in my bedroom and I don't want her to stay, So I told the naughty Rang-tan that she had to go away. Oh, Rang-tan in my bedroom, just before you go, Why were you in my bedroom? I really want to know. There's a human in my forest and I don't know what to do. He destroyed all of our trees for your food and your shampoo. There's a human in my forest and I don't know what to do. He took away my mother and I'm scared he'll take me, too. There are humans in my forest and I don't know what to do. They're burning it for palm oil so I thought I’d stay with you. Oh Rang-tan in my bedroom now I do know what to do. I’ll fight to save your home and I’ll stop you feeling blue. I’ll share your story far and wide so others can fight too. Oh Rang-tan in my bedroom I swear it on the stars: the future's not yet written but I’ll make sure it's ours.
How Monsanto put this farmer in court over GE seed
http://www.greenpeace.org.au || Moe Parr is a seed cleaner in Indiana, USA. In February 2007, Monsanto initiated a law suit against him. The biotech company claimed that Moe had encouraged farmers of genetically engineered soybean to save their seed. Moe is one of many farmers in North America who've faced coercion from Monsanto through legal and economic pressure. "Monsanto doesn't really care that you win the case because as soon as you win the case, they're going on to the next court," says Moe. Along with Canadian farmer Ross Murray, Moe is in Australia to speak with Australian farmers about his experiences with GE crops. Support Australian farmers who don't want to grow GE crops by asking your government to: * stay/go GE-free * introduce strict liability law that puts the responsibility for contamination onto the GE seed companies.

The story behind John West's tuna
Canned tuna is big business. Australians buy over 250 million cans a year. The choices tuna brands make have a huge impact on our oceans. While many brands are switching to sustainable fishing methods, the biggest brand - John West - is hooked on destructive fish aggregating devices (FADs) with purse seine nets. For every 9kg of tuna caught using this fishing method, an extra 1kg is 'bycatch' like sharks, rays, baby tuna and turtles. John West is the largest seller of canned tuna in Australia - it has a responsibility to stop destroying our oceans and ban the use of destructive FADs. TAKE ACTION: www.rejectjohnwest.com

This is our story - Sharyn Munro
Sharyn literally wrote the book on the impact coal is having on rural communities across Australia. She spent a year of her life documenting the stories of farmers and small business owners as they scrambled to make sense of the coal juggernaut as it rolled over the top of their lives. She calls it an industrial invasion. Sharyn's year-long investigation led her to conclude the game was rigged and coal and coal seam gas extraction companies were playing taking Australian communities for granted. "The process is a sham," said Sharyn. Though she has no doubt that whole communities are awake to the problems, saying, "Conservative people who would never have thought of breaking the law are really considering defying it. Good people defying bad laws." "What I found out was shocking, the scale of it, the speed of it and the really callous, corporate tactics used on people - I had not ever imagined that would be happening in Australia. I may have been naive but I thought if it shocked me it would shock ordinary Australians. I want them to read my book. They'll get very angry, they'll get quite upset but I want them to dry their eyes but stay angry enough to speak out, to act to save Australia and say; 'This is not the Australia we want to be or need to be', despite the spin we are constantly fed."

Save the Great Barrier Reef
This year 22% of the Great Barrier Reef's coral was sadly killed in the worst coral bleaching event on record. Unfortunately the Australian government – after witnessing the devastation climate change causes to the Great Barrier Reef – decided the best course of action is to continue to support an enormous expansion of coal mining.

Heron Island Research Station, The University of Queensland, Australia
Just 80 km east of Gladstone sits a little-known, idyllic tear drop in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Area, Heron Island. Home to nesting turtles and black noddy birds, it's also the location of a ground-breaking University of Queensland research facility that shows what could become the future of our Great Barrier Reef. The research being conducted here shows a glimpse into the past, present and future of the Great Barrier Reef, and the role that climate change and rising ocean acidity plays in damaging our delicate Reef.

Bill Ryan - Australian Hero
On 31st March 2014 around 150 people took action against Whitehaven's Maules Creek Coal Mine. One of those people was a 92 year old WWII veteran. His name is Bill Ryan. "I'm now 92 years of age and I was a veteran of the second world war. I served in the Kokoda campaign in New Britain. I thought what we were fighting for there was proper democracy. But I've learned that was not the situation. The government doesn't listen to the people, and this mine is a good example. There were over 300 submissions against the mine, and one submission for it. But it was approved. [...] Something is wrong. We're faced with a catastrophe. I owe it to my grandchildren, and I owe it to all children. I was willing to put my life on the line in the second world war, so putting my body on the line here is a small inconvenience."

Abbot Point Wetlands: Why risk this beautiful place for coal?
Until the coal industry moved in, Abbot Point was just another stunning beach in far north Queensland. But the wetlands behind Abbot Point were always something special. The traditional owners of Abbot Point have lived here for many thousands of years. But change is on its way. Coal companies think Abbot Point would make a better shipping port than beach. Today, industrialisation is digging deep into this beautiful country.

Why this Canadian farmer stopped growing GE canola
http://www.greenpeace.org.au || Canadian farmer Ross Murray used to grow genetically engineered (GE) canola. That is until he discovered the GE canola wasn't delivering on its promise and actually became a weed problem itself. "The canola that grew in subsequent years became a weed problem, a weed problem that had to be managed, to be sprayed for," says Ross. Along with US farmer Moe Parr, Ross is in Australia to speak with Australian farmers about his experiences growing GE canola.

This is our story - Richard Denniss
Australian economist, Dr Richard Denniss, believes the coal boom is very good news for the coal industry but really bad news for the manufacturing sector, tourism and agriculture. While it's been billed as the financial saviour of the nation, Dr Denniss reminds us that the "economy" is something that needs to work for over 22 million Australians and over a million businesses. So which bits of the economy is the coal boom good for? Eighty-three per cent of coal industry is foreign owned, so the profits from this boom are headed overseas. There are deals being done to ensure foreign workers get employed in mining in Western Australia and Queensland. Locally, workers that are flown in and flown out of mining towns get such big wages that local businesses, manufacturing industries, and community building services such as teaching, nursing and policing can't compete, and are struggling to find workers. Dr Denniss reminds us of the most basic principle in all good economies; don't put all your eggs in one basket "Last year 63 per cent of all investment went into the mining industry. But the mining industry only employs two per cent of our workforce. So we're putting our whole future faith in the fact that this mining boom is going to continue, so we've put all our eggs in one basket." "Booms end," says Denniss. "That's why it's risky to hollow out our manufacturing industry, hollow out our communities, and literally bet the country on the mining boom going forever. History tells us that booms are fun on the way up but no fun on the way down."

Michael Caton on board to save the Great Barrier Reef
Queenslander and star of "Packed to the Rafters", Michael Caton, visited the new Rainbow Warrior ship to join the campaign to save Australia's Great Barrier Reef from the reckless expansion of the coal industry. The Reef could be put in grave danger if proposed coal developments in Queensland go ahead. It could see thousands of ships each year travel through the Reef and harm local fisheries. Once the coal is burnt, it'll drive global warming even harder than ever before. Find out more about our campaign to #SaveTheReef: www.SaveTheReef.org.au
This is our story - June Norman
June knows a bit about endurance and walking. When the tiny nation of Timor Leste emerged from years of occupation and a short but brutal conflict with Indonesia, June saw the suffering of the people and headed to East Timor. "I was in Timor for three years working as a volunteer mainly with children in orphanages and women, but also in the prisons with the male prisoners," said June. "Just seeing the devastation, the hardship and the trauma and stresses those children in particular went through over there -- I had to act." June came back and saw what had happened to the Great Barrier Reef. "This is like a war in our own country," she says. "It will devastate our country. As our land is destroyed that grows the food and maybe our water could be contaminated - and then there's the real threat of losing the Great Barrier Reef." She has a plan. "I intend walking from Cairns to Gladstone with as many people as I can. I would like to have hundreds and hundreds of people come along with us. It's an awareness raising walk to highlight the coal expansion and to show the damage that it will cause to our Reef if it goes ahead. Also we want to meet the communities along the way, to talk to them, to listen to them and hear their concerns and for us to share our experiences along that walk." Please join June in June 2013. As she says, "Come along and join us. Our motto is Every Step Counts. Whether it's one hour, one day, one week or the whole way -- come and join us."
Label Genetically Modified foods Now
27 September, 2010, Greenpeace activists in Sydney were arrested after having taken food safety into their own hands and labelling the baby formula, S-26 Soy at Woolworths in Neutral Bay, clearly tagging it as genetically modified and giving parents the right to choose. The breast milk replacement formula S26 Soy is produced by American pharmaceutical company Pfizer and Greenpeace discovered that the product was contaminated with GM after they commissioned tests on how safe several infant formula products were. www.greenpeace.org.au/gmbaby
