Petra Andrić of Greenpeace Croatia informed the press of this action.
Greenpeace CEE activists onboard inflatable boats reached the terminal and painted “CLIMATE KILLER!” across the side of the LNG offshore terminal on the island of Krk in Croatia, the NGO also tweeted.
Andrić said that the protest, organised by the Greenpeace activists from central and eastern Europe, was peaceful.
Apart from the national context, also the European one is important, and the environmental organisation tweeted that this action “is a call to EU leaders to move away from fossil gas!”.
Andrić said that the activists urged the Croatian government to cease implementing further projects and investments in gas and other fossil fuel infrastructure and redirect those funds into the renewables, primarily into the solar energy resources Croatia abounds with.
The action in Omišalj completed the campaign organised by the Greenpeace Arctic Sunrise vessel in Croatia over the few past days in Croatia.
On Saturday, Greenpeace activists held a news conference in the northern Adriatic port of Rijeka, warning that INA’s gas platform Ivana D, which sank into the sea a year ago, was still in the Adriatic.
The Greenpeace boat Arctic Sunrise visited Rijeka again after eight years and over the weekend, the activists collected signatures for a petition by the European Citizens’ Initiative seeking an EU ban on fossil fuel advertisements and related sponsorships.
