Save the farmlands in Dulong Malabon, Pulilan, Bulacan. No to Unicorn Metal Corp.!
Unicorn Metal Corp. (UMC), a company categorized as a heavy industry one, has started dumping soil on a 20-hectare farmland in Barangáy Dulong Malabon in Pulilan, Bulacan. With the initial claim of building a warehouse only, it has finally admitted it aimed to build a rolling mill. It has started the project without the necessary permits from the relevant authorities.
It is a frightening thought that an ECP (Environmentally Critical Project) has been started on an ECA (Environmentally Critical Area) (ECA) WITHOUT an ECC (Environmental Compliance Certificate) from DENR-EMB (Department of the Environment and Natural Resources – Environmental Management Board) and without other necessary permits.
A by-pass road has recently been built through the barangáy, Since it is close to NLEX (North Luzón Expressway), it will open up farmlands on both sides of the road to industrialization if the UMC project is allowed to continue.
We, the undersigned, called on the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the Sangguniang Bayan (SB) of Pulilan to stop Unicorn Metal Corp. in the continuation and completion of its project that will destroy the farmlands and that will be detrimental to the health and environment of the people of Dulong Malabon and its neigbouring barangáys.
