Pilipinas for Sale Gma7
Gerald C. RollonCLHS104 Environmental ScienceMr. Choi PILIPINAS FOR SALE Sa Luzon, tinuklas ang sinasabing nagaganap na bentahan ng ilang isla sa pamosong El Nido sa Palawan. Tulad na lang ng Turtle Island, kilalang breedingground ng mga pawikan. Ang walong ektaryang isla, ngayo’y ibinebenta sa halagang P12 million. Sa Visayas, may ganito ring nagaganap na kalakalan sa Bohol. Gamit ang tax declaration, ibinebenta rin ang ilang islang idineklara bilang protected area. Sa Cebu naman, natuklasang ginagamit ito bilang isa sa transhipment points upang ipuslit palabas ng bansa ang black corals.
Sa Mindanao, hinanap sa kauna-unahang pagkakataon ang umano’y pinagmulan ng tone-toneladang black corals na nasabat sa mga pier ilang buwan na ang nakararaan. Sinayasat din ang isyu ng pagmimina sa CARAGA, ang tinaguriang mining capital sa bansa. REFECTION: PILIPINAS FOR SALE This is sad to know that our own land is for sale. People of the Philippines must not only focus on the problems in Manila alone but also see the other problems of its other islands because every Filipino people would benefit its preservation.
I think the government should do something about it, if they have the responsibility of protecting its people, they might be also have the responsibility to take care of its mother land and everything that was created within it. Most especially the people should be aware of the consequences one thing might happen in the future. Big companies might offer something else as a counter offer for their own gain but whose to blame if the government can’t provide the people what they need. Too sad!
