Canada garbage protest

Environmental group Ban Toxics carries placards and a mock shipping container in front of the Philippine Senate complex in Pasay City on Friday during a protest rally urging the government to demand that Canada take back their garbage that was exported to the country. The group is also urging the government to ratify the Basel amendment, which the Philippines is part of, that effectively prohibits rich countries from exporting their trash to developing countries so that the ban can be enforced.
