'Defend Philippine waters'

Members of various activist groups hold a picket in front of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to protest the presence of a foreign dredging vessel in the waters off Lobo town in Batangas, on Friday. The environment department ordered M/V Emerald, a vessel registered in Sierra Leone, to leave after allegedly failing to secure all government permits needed for the dredging project.
