MetadataShow full item record
The Archdiocese of Manila has weighed in on the planned Manila Bay reclamation projects. “We, in the Archdiocese of Manila, are against the Manila Bay reclamation due to ecological grounds. It is against ecology,” Manila Auxiliary Bishop Broderick Pabillo said. The Makabayan bloc of the House of Representatives has filed a bill seeking to declare Manila Bay a reclamation-free zone. Under House Bill 9067, the group of progressive lawmakers seeks to prohibit all forms of reclamation activities that will affect a part of or the entire Manila Bay area.
