Reef destruction in West Philippine Sea

Members of the Socialista Pilipinas hold a protest outside the China Embassy along Gil Puyat Ave in Makati on Thursday to condemn the destruction and harvesting of corals at the West Philippine Sea. An extensive water survey in the area conducted by the Philippine Coast Guard exposed a significant loss of marine life which according to marine biology experts could take years to recover.
