Chareon Wat-aksorn

Change has to start somewhere and with someone. It started with Chareon Wat-aksorn who decided that he would simply not accept being victim of ill-advised development project in his homeland. He led the community to defeat proposed coal-fired power plant at Bo Nok, Prachuab Kirikhan Province in Thailand. Then he was assassinated by local mafia in 2004. Change can also start with you, when you decide that something is unacceptable, that you won’t put up with it any longer.
