“Garbage, especially plastic, is destroying the livelihood of thousands of fisherfolk living in the coastal communities of Mega Manila. Meanwhile, reclamation, which is an irreversible project, poses a greater threat to the lives of these residents. Failure to restore Manila Bay, and the aggressive push for reclamation, would mean more misery and even death for the country’s poorest sector.”
