March 18, 2023


And God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear.” And it was so.

And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called the Seas: and God saw that it was good.

Genesis Chapter 1 v 9-10

 

Man tampers with God’s design for the Earth disturbing the natural ecosystem and displacing marine life.

Cavite fisherfolk and supporters staged a fluvial protest against the reclamation of Manila Bay along the coastal towns and villages of Cavite on Tuesday, March 14. Led by Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamamalakaya ng Pilipinas (PAMALAKAYA), the protesters demanded the immediate halt to the dredging activities in the southern part of Manila. PAMALAKAYA claims around 22 dredging boats are now in operation in the area. – Photos by Bullit Marquez for VERA Files.
