Plot twist for Manila’s ‘last lung’

05:01 AM May 21, 2019

Breathe a sigh of relief, Manilans!

On the threshold of an imminent “point of no return” at the time when the threat of losing Manila’s last lung was a stark reality, the election happened.


It dramatically altered not only the destiny of the Arroceros Forest Park, but also the selfish mindset of the local authorities. Never has there been a better time to positively respond to the calls of environmentalists! It only takes a decisive declaration by the newly minted Mayor Isko Moreno to let the key source of quality air stay its course, for the city to benefit from. Long live!
