Video: From Sea to Shelf – fisheries for the future

Posted by reto — 14 July 2009 at 5:02pm - Comments

With around 80 per cent of fish stocks in trouble, species driven to extinction and ecosystems on the brink of collapse, it's time to rethink how we harvest our oceans. This new video shows how Greenpeace has been encouraging retailers to clean up their seafood shelves - by switching to a sustainable seafood sourcing policy they can change the world's fisheries and help to protect the world's oceans.

Video: Ben up a chimney - "Politicians talk, leaders act"

From the top of an Italian smokestack, Ben explains why we're telling G8 leaders to act now on the climate. We need strong leadership - what comes out of the G8 paves the wya for the upcoming Copenhange UN climate summit in December, which is the best moment of opportunity for averting dangerous climate change.

Day two on the coal occupation in Italy. In Marghera, near Venice, the occupation continues, with activists on the coal conveyor and the chimney painting 'G8: LEAD OR LOSE'. More activists are also occupying the cranes on the wharf, stopping a coal ship – the Bulk Brasil – from unloading its cargo from South Africa.

What do we say to bigger airports? © Vanessa Miles/Greenpeace

I decided to give Glastonbury a miss this year, but it looks like everyone currently stuck in a seven-hour tailback in the car park had a rollickin' good time. Not just because of the sunshine or Blur's barnstorming set last night (slightly jealous I missed that), but the Greenpeace field was once again a marvel to behold.

Video: 20,000 tonne coal shipment stopped from reaching Kingsnorth

Last night Greenpeace volunteers boarded E.ON's moving bulk freighter Sir Charles Parsons, carrying thousands of tonnes of coals to restock the Kingsnorth coal-fired power station.

They intercepted the freighter using rigid inflatable speedboats just after midnight as the ship sped up the River Medway towards Kingsnorth, then attached climbing ladders to the vessel and scaled the 15 metre hull. Three teams comprising nine people succeeded in boarding the ship. They then scaled the ship's huge funnel and the towering foremast to stop the ship from unloading.

A Time Comes - more about the film by Nick Broomfield

The Kingsnorth Six made history last year: accused of causing £30,000 of criminal damage to Kingsnorth power station, their defence of "lawful excuse"was accepted by the jury - because they were acting to safeguard property around the world "in immediate need of protection" from the impacts of climate change, caused in part by burning coal.

Imagine a world without fish...

Hot on the heels of The Age of Stupid comes The End of the Line, a disturbing and powerful film about one of the world's most shockingly ignored problems - overfishing.

For centuries people have viewed the seas as an unlimited resource which can be tapped into at will, and one that will rapidly replenish itself regardless of how much we take from it. But the more we learn about what's happening in our oceans, the more we realise that this is no longer true, if it ever was.
