Blogger Debunks Claim of Meme 'Manila Bay Project Destroyed a Mountain in Cebu'

A controversial meme is now circulating on social media with some netizens suspected the Dilawans or the critics of the Duterte admin as the culprit behind the meme claiming that the Manila Bay Project destroyed a mountain in Cebu.



The meme juxtaposing two images showing the alleged source of dolomite in the mountain in Alcoy, Cebu and Manila Bay getting a makeover using the dolomite sand from Cebu.



The controversial meme showed in the above image an embedded text which reads: "Sinir nyo ito!!! Alcoy, Cebu. The image below reads: Para dito...!!! Manila Bay!

The controversial meme caught the attentions of prominent Duterte supporter and Manila Bulletin writer Krizette Laureta Chu who reacted with the meme being circulated allegedly by the Dilawans.

Krizette Chu even called the critics of the President and the Manila Bay project as "Yung katangahan nila very... tanga!"

The veteran blogger and Manila Bulletin writer rejected the argument made by the meme uploader that the mining area in Alcoy, Cebu was destroyed by the little amount of dolomite sands dumbed in Manila Bay.

According to the writer the Alcoy mining area which is considered as the biggest in Asia has been in operation since 1981.



Read the Complete Statement of Krizette Chu:

Yung Katangahan nila very... tanga

This is the Alcoy Cebu mining area, the biggest of all Asia. Hindi yan nasira dahil sa kakarampot na Manila Bay sands. This mining area has been in operation since 1981. ULITIN NATIN: LARGEST IN ASIA, OPERATING SINCE 1981

READ MGA HAMPAS DOLOMITE

“It is known for its large deposit of dolomite mineral. With a size of 571 hectares (1,411 acres) of mining claims and an estimated balance of deposits at 220 million metric tons, since the extraction began in 1981, it is currently the biggest dolomite mining found in Asia.

The mining company, Philippine Mining Service Corporation, is a private company wholly owned by JFE Mineral Company, part of JFE Steel Corporation of Japan.[4]



For Pugalo the major income comes from dolomite mining. Aside from mining, there is subsistence farming, fishing, and to a lesser extent, retailing and services.

Although tourism is not yet an income-generating industry, the barangay has a few interesting natural wonders especially its rich marine resources. It has a barrier reef running parallel to the contour of the barangay's shoreline. Its coral reefs are among the most diverse in this part of the country.”

This is partly owned by a Japanese company—another heartbreaking truth about how mining operates in this country where officials can be bribed as Mayor of this town says the town doesn’t get any revenue from the mining activities.

Ask around, the biggest violators of mining practices are not Filipinos but the French, etc, and others who took advantage of the deep seated corruption of this country IN THE PAST DECADES.
