Shortly before Benigno Aquino’s last State of the Nation Address on Monday, fisherfolk from the city of Muntinlupa stage a fluvial parade on Saturday to protest the president’s Laguna de Bay Masterplan 2020.

Some 50 fishing boats joined in the procession to register the fishing community’s dissent against the implementation of the second largest Public-Private Partnership (PPP) under the Aquino administration. The said privatization plan aims to construct a 47-km expressway dike and reclaim 700 hectares of water for commercial, industrial, and eco-tourism use.
