Pasig River, Philippines フィリピン・パシッグ川

Have Greta Thunberg ever seen kids in the Philippines?

Have Greta Thunberg ever seen kids in the Philippines?


I took this photo by the Pasig River near Intramuros in Manila, Philippines, a few years ago – children gathering plastics and PET bottles to sell for a living were waving their hands to us with joyful smile. we saw piles of waste by the riverside while strolling around the Cebu island, and children smiling at us in the street (they are really cute and lovely!) came closer to us and asked for pennies and chocolates.


Everytime I saw photos of Ms Greta Thunberg, news and arguments re her approach to CO2 reduction and climete change (both pros and cons), those scenes come up to my mind and I have mixed feelings… its not just because i’m related to Filipinas in Japan…
