HCM CITY (VNS) — Thousands of foreigners and local residents took part in "September Black Day" held last Sunday in HCM City to raise awareness about the negative impact of coal on human and environmental health.

At the event, the organiser worked with artists to make statues of human bodies painted in black, wearing coal masks and standing in the cities' busiest public places, including April 30th Park, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Saigon Central Post Office.

The event, launched by 350.org - an international environmental organisation. aims to mobilise public support for the use of renewable energy to ensure the sustainability of both the environment and humanity.

Similar events were organised on the same day in Da Nang, Ha Noi and Can Tho. — VNS
