Today started with media madness as the local print media covered the story of the pellets in full. Full Page in the Apple Daily, and large articles Oriental Daily, Sing Tao, Ming Pao, HK Economic Times etc. Then it went up a gear as we “Hit the Beach!”
We had over 220 volunteers come to DB and clean the beaches. Some of these guys came as far afield as Fanling to help with this crisis. BIG RESPECT to all who gave up their time for the environment and Hong Kong’s future today. Many more beaches to go, but a fantastic start. While everyone was cleaning, Tracey and I were ambushed by the TV crews. Now TV, Cable TV, Hong Kong Broadcast, Reuters, ATV and Pearl TV, plus countless interviews with reporters for magazines etc…..phew! Talked out!
Tomorrow I will be visiting Lamma East and doing a reconnaissance mission around Lamma to identify and record other areas of pollution. Tracey may be with me or having a well earnt day off with her family!
