Critical Mass Baliuag – “Bikes against Coal and Fossil Fuels” (Philippines)
Bulacan is one of the major industrial and agricultural center. It is strategically located between the commercial center of Manila and the industrial and trading centers of Northern Luzon. One of the traditional rice granary of the Philippines. Despite the great challenge posed by El Niño on agriculture, this province pulled off a bountiful harvest that has propelled it to being recognized by the Department of Agriculture as a Hall of Famer in the Agri-Pinoy Rice Achievers Award.
All of a sudden this claim progressively changing due to land conversion for real estate development, mall culture and consumerism. The food production in this area are now getting low because vast agricultural land are now becoming a low-cost housing project, supermarkets and malls.
This building and construction will be requiring a huge amount of electricity and it will be dependent on coal and fossil fuel source of energy. The situation of food security is at risk and will create an impact on climate related issues.
We are suggesting to stage a protest on street and create an awareness about the social and ecological situation that happens in the locality and connect this in the global scale of the problem on climate change.
We are planning to have a Critical Mass throughout the municipality of Baliuag, Bulacan for two hours and then have a Food Not Bombs mass feeding action. We will make an open invitation for the people to participate. We will be needing foods, banners, flyers and other documents that we will distribute.
We are asking financial support for this initiative and help us make this possible.
Expected amount: 9000 pesos
Foods for the participant’s approx.50- 80 people
Foods for the mass feeding action
Banners (paint, textile and tarpaulin)
Flyers (500 sheets of every documents to be photocopied)
