Reclamation plan worries Navotas fisherfolk
MetadataShow full item record
Around 100 members of Navotas City’s fishing community took to the water on Tuesday in protest against a 650-hectare reclamation project on Manila Bay, which they said would displace around 20,000 people. Setting off on 27 boats and organized by the militant group Pamalakaya, the protesters came from Barangay Tangos to the city’s centennial plaza, assembling along the fence marking the planned Navotas Boulevard Business Park (NBBP). The project was approved in 2015 and is currently on the detailed engineering stage, according to 2017 data from the Philippine Reclamation Authority.
