MetadataShow full item record
The Makabayan bloc of the House of Representatives wants to declare Manila Bay as reclamation-free zone. The group of progressive lawmakers filed House Bill 9067 that seeks to prohibit all forms of reclamation activities that will affect a part of or the entire Manila Bay area. Anakpawis Rep. Ariel Casilao, who led the filing of the bill, said there should be “genuine” rehabilitation of the Manila Bay and it should not be used to disguise the reclamation of the coastal area.
