Eco Warriors Thailand

Here is an ongoing compilation of posts related to grassroots environmental activism and heroism in Thailand:

Srisuwan Janya, head of Stop Global Warming Association is seeking to halt several industrial projects which are alleged to have endangered the environment as well as surrounding communities and some of them may have breached the Environmental Act.

Thongnak Sawekchinda , murdered in July 2011 was a prominent environmental activist in Samut Sakhon province. Over the past five years, Thongnak led villagers in Muang, Ban Phaeo, and Krathum Baen districts in high-profile protests against the persistent problem of air pollution from dust and fumes from coal depots and separation factories.

Pisit Charnsnoh lives and works in Thailand’s southern province of Trang, on the Malay Peninsula. In 1985, he and his wife founded the Yadfon Association to work with impoverished coastal villages in Trang. The coastal ecosystems of Thailand have been devastated by logging, burning of mangroves for charcoal and commercial shrimp farms. Thailand is the world’s largest exporter of cultivated shrimp.Today, over half the country’s mangrove forests have been lost, and many of the remaining have been burned to produce charcoal.
