This saddening news targeted the movement of the Philippine government, criticizing its view and process regarding such matter. The dispute since started in 2012 and until now; it still has not yet been resolved. China already built structures on the island and occupied the place. From the stay of China, many damages have already been found and the latest was the destruction of coral reefs.
With this many Netizens agree with Regine Velasquez as they, too, expressed their disappointments on how the government is allowing these things to happen.
this is very real and true. we need your voice, @reginevalcasid .
