Advisory: Cancellation of International Coastal Cleanup
Please be advised that the celebration of the 2016 International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) scheduled on Saturday (17 Sept 2016) is cancelled as decided by the Philippine Coast Guard Auxiliary (PCGA) and ICC-Philippines as the co-coordinators of the ICC in the country.
All activities, preparations and plans this year for the ICC are cancelled as well. The cancellation is in light of the President's proclamation of a state of national emergency and government intelligence reports as to the existence of threats of further acts of violence.
Another nationwide campaign to clean up the coastal areas will be conducted when the security condition in the country stabilizes according to PCGA and ICC-Phils.
Please help disseminate the advisory to inform the participants around the country about the cancellation.
Below are the copies of the Memo (DENR) and Advisory (PCGA) regarding the cancellation of ICC.
