Manila Bay gets fresh dolomite dump

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

Heavy vehicles dump fresh dolomite at the "Dolomite Beach" along Roxas Boulevard in Manila on Tuesday, April 13. The artificial white sand beach is part of a P389 million-peso project of the gov't to rehabilitate Manila Bay. 

Cases are still rising, yet the news we got today is manila bay getting another dolomite dumping?

What's the sense of Manila Bay's "beautification" if no one will be able to personally see it due to the lockdown?

Amidst the pandemic, the government is wasting money on dolomite dumping. This can even worsen the condition of the coastal and marine ecosystems in Manila Bay by introducing foreign material and increasing sedimentation.

MalacaƱang has defended the controversial dumping of crushed dolomite in the area. Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque last Sept. 7 said that Manila Bay’s “white sand” makeover will give immeasurable benefit to Filipinos’ mental health.

The mental health reasoning of the government for the dolomite issue / waste of resources is the same thing as people using buzzwords they get from article headlines without actually reading the article.

So magagamot depression at anxiety ng mga Pilipino dahil maganda Manila Bay?!

These people are just killing Manila Bay. Idk ah but replenishing it again with another dose of dolomite that can be washed away again  over the course of how many months?? Where is the sustainable tourism?? WHY IS OUR MONEY GOING TO THIS SHITTY PROJECT?!

LITERALLY THROWING MONEY INTO THE OCEAN FOR NOTHING + the environmental repercussions of mining the dolomite!

This isn't how you rehabilitate Manila Bay. You do that by stopping the reclamation projects destroying the ecosystems, corals, mangroves, & displacing fisherfolk!

Let's be honest, Manila Bay is just a huge kitty litter at this point.

Stop lying to the Filipino people!

This could've been thousands of vaccines, additional beds and facilities.

This could've been thousands of Filipino lives saved.
