“We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.” – Aldo Leopold
A local court in Baguio City released today a 72-hour temporary environmental protection order (TEPO) stopping the management of SM Investments Corporation (SMIC) from uprooting almost 200 trees as part of the SM Baguio mall development program.
While all this is happening , SM Baguio is all boarded up. All the verandas facing tree-cutting area have vertical high panels so people can’t see what is happening below. The local folks say the wood boards really look like coffins.
In the meantime, there are calls to Boycott SM malls
