Led by its chairman Dr. RJ Naguit, the Akbayan Youth, has filed a motion before the Supreme Court to ask the high tribunal to cite the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in contempt over the dumping of artificial white sand in Manila Bay. The militant group argues the dumping of crushed dolomite sand in Manila Bay violates SC’s continuing mandamus over the area. Signatories to the petition are Akbayan Chair Emeritus Etta Rosales, Akbayan Youth chairperson Dr. RJ Naguit and Julieta Agon Romano, Head Ministry on Ecology of the Sto. Nino de Pandacan Parish, Manila.
