Don’t DESTROY our PARADISE: San Felipe Zambales

7 barko na ang napuno ng buhangin galing sa BEACH ng Linasin. Ayon sa naka-usap namin bawal daw po ang BEACH QUARRY. Paano ito nakalusot sa mga opsiyal ng bayan at sa DENR? Nabisto din daw ng kapitolyo na dinadaya nila ang idinideklarang dami ng buhangin na kinukuha kaya lugi ang bayan sa ibinabayad nila. Bakit hindi ito nalaman ng bayan at kapitolyo pa ang nakahuli? May kasabwat ba sa bayan natin?

Sabi din ng DENR ay walang mga kumpletong permit ang ECOLINK sa paggawa ng pier o pag-gamit ng shoreline. Bakot ito pinayagan ng munisipyo? May pag-aaral ba na ginawa kung tama ang proyektong ito? Ilan na ba talaga ang sukat ng buhangin na hinukay ng ecolink at ng munisipyo?? Nasaan ang dredging plan ? Ito ba ay nasusunod? Bakit nasisira na ang ating kalikasan ay hinahayaan pang magpatuloy? Sino ang mga protektor? Malapit na ang halalan matuto na tayo mga kailyan pero dapat sagutin nila ang mga tanong natin. Sino ang mananagot?
