Stop the Quarry in Consolacion, Cebu

This quarry will be built within metres of local residents and their homes – impacting their health, destroying the local environment, and adding real safety risks on quiet country roads.

If you live near the quarry site, you and your family may be at risk.

quarrying can cause accidents such as landslide and etc. Animals will be forced to find another habitat and it will lessen the population of animals.

What is our goal?

Our goal is to change the decision of the government. We want the Government to create sensible limits on how close a quarry can be put to a home. While the Ministry for the Environment's good practice guidelines recommend a setback distance of 500m, there is no law enforcing such requirements. In other countries – including India and Pakistan – they insist on a 1km minimum setback. We don't want to be the same as the other countries, 

Together we can secure the safety of our future, and ensure no quarries are built within a kilometer or more of our communities and their families.
