DENR Calabarzon People’s Day: “Happy ang New Year”
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Region 4A has once again celebrated People’s Day on January 9, 2017.
Among the participants are representatives of PKMM (Pambansang Katipunan ng Makabayang Magbubukid), a people’s organization composed of local farmers and fishers from Barangay Dinahican, Infanta, Quezon, who aired their concern on the confiscation of wood allegedly illegally sourced from Palanan, Isabela. They said they were supposed to use the wood for repairing their wrecked boats.
“Paano ang aming hanapbuhay?” one of the members said, expressing his worry that they might not be able to continue fishing, hence, could no longer provide for their families.
Regional Director Reynulfo Juan said that he is all for supporting livelihood. Understanding their plight, he provided them with possible solutions to help their situation: “Pwede akong gumawa ng endorsement letter sa BFAR (Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources), may binibigay silang libre[ng bangka], o kaya pwede namin kayo matulungan sa paghahanap ng makukuhanan ng kahoy”, he stated.
He asked them to specify the kinds of wood they need to repair their boats so that the Office could assist them in looking for legal sources. He also assured them that it will be verified whether or not the apprehension was conducted properly.
Another concern of the group was a problem regarding the rightful owner of the land they are residing in. Accordingly, there are two groups claiming the land: the Magallanes and the Maharlikans. The complaining party conveyed that they are confused as to whom they should pay their dues, as the Magallanes drives them away every time they cannot pay them.
“Magko-conduct tayo ng investigation. Kailangang malaman kung ano ang land classification, sino ang occupant, at sino ang claimant” Juan said. He also asked the residents to be present during the investigation.
On the other hand, some residents of Barangay Tunha, Famy, Laguna relayed their petition to cancel the survey plan of a certain Mr. Sotalbo, who was given survey authority despite him not having a land title. The residents are now facing the threat of possibly losing their homes to demolition. At present, the case has been brought to the court.Read more...
