Groups to ask SC to cite DENR in contempt over Manila Bay white sand project
Akbayan Partylist and its youth wing, Akbayan Youth, will file a motion before the Supreme Court tomorrow, Thursday, seeking to cite the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in contempt over the dumping of artificial white sand in Manila Bay.
The groups will argue that the dumping of Dolomite sand in Manila Bay is in violation of the SC’s continuing mandamus over the area.
Signatories to the petition are Akbayan Chair Emeritus Etta Rosales, Akbayan Youth Chairperson Dr. RJ Naguit and Julieta Agon Romano, Head Ministry on Ecology of the Sto. Nino de Pandacan Parish, Manila.
A creative action will also be held before the SC wherein members of Akbayan Youth will carry hour glasses to say that “time is running out for fake sand in Manila Bay.”
