Saying no to trespassers, Catanduanes lawmaker Cesar Sarmiento and Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade have agreed to establish a coast guard base in LoRan-Bagamanoc in Catanduanes to protect the Benham Rise.

During the recent budget deliberations in Congress, Sarmiento filed House Resolution 998 aimed at protecting Benham Rise, also known as Philippine Rise, against poachers.

In his post on Facebook, Sarmiento said Benham Rise bases and facilities will be established in Catanduanes. He also posted photos of him and other lawmakers doing the Duterte fist.

Love it how you’re being protective of our own territory and resources. Push!
