Groups raise indignation vs 'black sand mining' in NegOcc coastlines
Youth organizations, student councils, non-government organizations (NGOs), civil society and concerned groups and sectors have raised their growing indignation on the alleged black sand mining plan under the guise of dredging, declogging and desiltation in the resource-rich coastlines of Negros. The groups, in a joint statement, said they join local fisherfolks and communities that will be highly affected by this "environmentally-destructive project" in their opposition to suck out black sand in the coastlines and deplete the bounty marine resource of the province. The E.B. Magalona Small Fisherfolks Alliance (EBMASFA) has said that as affected coastal communities, they were never informed nor consulted on this important matter.
