Greenpeace Protestors broke into MWC 2017 Samsung's Presentation

During Samsung’s presentation at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on the 27th of this month, Greenpeace protesters unfolded banners to call attention to the company’s handling of the disposal of millions of recalled Galaxy Note 7 phones.

Upon the steps that lead up to the Samsung stage stood a protestor holding a banner. The banner showed Samsung’s log, the recycling logo, the #GalaxyNote7 handle, and the slogan: “Rethink, Reuse, Recycle”. This prompted Samsung Electronics Europe’s chief marketing officer, David Lowes, to address the protestor, “You’ve made your point.”

Samsung had been under fire for some time since the company announced that they would destroy the entire stock rather than refurbishing them last year.
