Greenpeace Water Patrol activists construct a metallic barrier at the entrance to a waste dump in Angono Rizal in Manila Philippines on August 29, 2008.The waste dump which has encroached the shores of Laguna Lake was blocked with steel scaffolding to prevent garbage trucks from entering and continuing to dump the municipality's refuse in the site. Dumpsites are illegal under the Ecological Waste Management Act (RA 9003) and the Angono dumpsite, located on the banks of Laguna Lake, additionally blatantly violates the Clean Water Act (RA 9275).
