Think of the children! Mercedes Councilor Charlie Villamarzo says no to black sand mining


We HEARD THE VOICES OF OUR FUTURE CHILDREN! We saw people crying. We imagined the chaos, the disaster and would-be catastrophic effect in our seas and every marine life. All will be lost.

WE say NO TO BLACK SAND (Magnetite) MINING and any other form of irresponsible mining in Mercedes!!!

In a regular session held yesterday, the Sangguniang Bayan passed in mass motion a “RESOLUTION INTERPOSING STRONG OBJECTION” to the application and grant of exploration and mining permit to a certain company in DENR-MGB. The SB is set to personally deliver the OBJECTION to the Secretary of DENR and to other concerned national agencies. God bless Mercedes.
