Solidarity march to support the confirmation of DENR secretary

Greenpeace Philippines adds its voice to the growing number of people, organizations, and communities calling for the confirmation of Regina Paz L. Lopez as Secretary of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

We support the actions that the incumbent has undertaken thus far, especially in the mining sector, where industry giants continuously put our environment and communities in danger, and the agency’s ongoing dismantling of illegal fish pens in Laguna de Bay that threaten our small fishermen. We are hoping that Secretary Lopez’s focus and political will would extend as well to other urgent environmental issues, such as stopping the proliferation of coal; arresting coastal reclamation; the need for a pollution release and transfer registry (PRTR); addressing plastic pollution; wildlife trafficking; waste importation and the ratification of the Basel Ban Amendment; opposing waste-to-energy (WTE) technologies; going after illegal fishers and supporting small fishermen and poor Filipinos; among other concerns.
