Fisherfolk protest black sand mining in Aparri

Some 1,700 fisherfolk and anti-mining advocates on Friday protest against the black sand mining operations in Cagayan River and the Babuyan Channel in Aparri. The residents decried the sudden decline in the harvest of spider shrimp or aramang allegedly due to the extractive destruction operation allegedly allowed by the provincial government.
