Militants call on PRRD, DOE to stop coal-powered plants

Militant groups with ecological and environmental leanings on Friday staged a protest march as they called on President Rodrigo Duterte and the Department of Energy to put an end to coal mining along with coal-powered energy plants as they are accordingly destructive to both the environment and public health.

Progress of their march, however, was met by Manila’s Finest’s blocking force near the main gate of the University of the East CM Recto Campus, which is but a scant 100 yards away from historic Mediola bridge of Malacanang Palace. JHUN MABANAG / BENJAMIN CUARESMA
