Thousands of Manila Bay Cleanup Volunteers Arrested

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Thousands of citizens who had volunteered to help in the cleanup of Manila Bay this weekend were arrested and jailed for violation of Manila City Hall’s permits rule.

None of the volunteers realized that City Hall required all volunteers who wanted to help in the cleanup to secure a permit to do so.

House Representatives belonging to the Makabayan Bloc praised City Hall’s rule.  The lawmakers earlier demanded for the suspension of the Bay cleanup until all interested parties have been consulted.

So before you  roll up your sleeves and put on your rubber boots to head for Manila Bay, make sure you first make a trip to Manila City Hall’s Permits Office..
