Anti-Coal Plant stand unites Olongapo leaders

Around 2,500 protesters showed up in the first Anti-Coal plant rally held in Olongapo City.
social media nets are flooded with posts from the said activity

Akbayan party-list Rep. Walden Bello urged the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to recall the environmental compliance certificate (ECC) earlier issued by former Environment chief Lito Atienza for the plant’s construction and operation.

“It [The ECC] was very quietly done. Did they really conduct a good assessment in terms of public health and environmental impacts? Was it a clean deal?... Bakit walang public consultation? Napakahalaga sa isang ECC na may public consultation," Bello claimed.

Bello, describing coal as the “dirtiest energy source," wondered why the previous administration allowed the construction of the coal power plant.

"‘Yung environmental aspects, kung hindi [maayos], talagang hindi dapat bigyan ng go-signal ‘yan… If it doesn’t pass environmental standards, then it can’t go on,"
he said in a press briefing on Tuesday.

You will be proud to be a member of this community pag nakita mo kung paano nagkaisa ang mga mamamayan upang tutulan ang planong pagtatayo ng Coal fired power plant sa naganap na protest rally kanina. Mayaman, mahirap, matanda, bata at ang magkabilang bakod ng pulitika ay nagkaisa upang mariing tutulan ang coal plant. Sumasaludo po kami sa mga nakiisa at hindi inalintana ang malakas na ulan upang maglakad patungo sa SBMA upang iparating ang ating sigaw: Coal plant sa Subic! AYAW NAMIN!
