Citizen’s group supports Manila Bay rehabilitation
MetadataShow full item record
The nationwide citizen’s movement Maypagasa has thrown its support for the “Battle of Manila Bay” led by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR). Maypagasa is a multi-sectoral group that advocates good governance, clean environment, and community development. It cited the recent statement made by Environment Sec. Roy Cimatu that emphasized, “the firm resolve to bring Manila Bay back to life.” The DENR is leading the clean up of Manila Bay based on the Supreme Court’s mandamus on Feb. 15, 2011, that mandates the agency and other government entities to rehabilitate the bay to prevent the “continuous cycle of man-made pollution.”
