|"I believe in my heart that no matter how several big people may be against Gina, she will always stand by what she believes is morally and environmentally right and righteous."|
--Senator Manny Pacquiao
DENR Secretary Gina Lopez is one of the bravest women in the Philippines today, though she was rejected as an Environment Secretary by the Commission on Appointments, many Duterte supporters criticized the decision and questioned whether Gina Lopez was really unfit to hold the position.
Senator Manny Pacquiao has been very vocal that he admired DENR Secretary Gina Lopez a lot for her passion and love to safeguard the environment from several mining companies who were alleged for unsafe mining practices.
Some of these big mining companies are owned by rich and powerful people in the country. In a blog post of Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, he asked, "If it is not Ms. Gina Lopez, then who will be the next environment secretary?"
I think Lopez angered several mining companies when she cancelled dozens of contracts for being a committed environmentalist. But she has the right to do so when she knows that the lives and safety of the people are endangered.
Senator Pacquiao showed his support to Ms. Lopez. He said
"I believe in my heart that no matter how several big people may be against Gina, she will always stand by what she believes is morally and environmentally right and righteous."
I also believe that Lopez is doing the right thing for our country especially for our environment that has been abused by many people. No wonder why we now experience earthquakes and other natural calamities because we do not care for our mother nature.
Like what Pacquiao said that he felt the concern of Ms. Lopez for our mother earth, many Filipinos have raised their voices together in social media that they are still going to support Ms. Gina Lopez.
