We are a group of anti-noise advocates from all over the country meeting together in our Facebook group sharing our various negative and deplorable experiences with noise pollution and discussing various legal remedies and actions in order to solve a serious environmental problem with a serious health and economic impact, Noise Pollution.

Noise may constitute a nuisance but it must be of such character as to produce actual physical discomfort and annoyance to a person of ordinary sensibilities. Excessive noise is any noise that is under human control and unreasonably interferes with the peace, comfort and convenience of any person. Instances of nuisance by noise pollution in our country can range from the use of excessively loud sound systems for advertisement, entertainment or religious services, to the use of noisy tools or machinery of commercial and/or industrial establishments located in or near residential areas, vehicle owners modifying their vehicles to create excessive noise, and irresponsible pet owners letting their pets or animals under their care create excessive noise despite existing laws.

Several studies have already attested to the fact that noise pollution affects not only our health but also our economic well-being. We have received several pleas of help and assistance from parents trying to help their children study online to employees pursuing employment or business pursuits from their homes while dealing with nuisance by noise pollution by their neighbors.

Our petition asks for the following: 1) Give primary enforcement powers of anti-noise pollution laws ( according to Memorandum Circular 002, series of 1980 from the DENR, Title VIII of the Civil Code of the Philippines, and other applicable local anti-noise ordinances) to the PNP. The barangays are, at best ineffective in enforcing these laws, at worst, encourage or support instances of nuisance by noise pollution. 
2) Pass House Bills 2516 and 3052 under Congresswoman G.Labadlabad.
