Green Party of the Philippines (GPP-KALIKASAN MUNA) Pays Tribute to Gina Lopez

We, the Green Party of the Philippines, an emerging environmental party in the country which is composed of a nationwide membership in 16 regions, 31 provinces, and 163 cities and municipalities across the region, joins in the commemoration of Environmentalist Gina Lopez’s First Year Death Anniversary. As an organization who believes in having a caring attitude towards every citizen that nurtures and safeguards our environment, we uphold the many programs and advocacies of Ms. Gina Lopez for the environment and Filipino communities, to wit :

  1. Establishment of Bantay Kalikasan,
  2. Reforestation of the La Mesa Watershed Reservation and Administration of La Mesa Ecopark,
  3. Rehabilitation of Pasig River and its 46 tributaries,
  4. Launching of the Save Palawan Movement and her staunch support to No Mining in Palawan Movement which advocated for no large-scale mining in the province,
  5. Objection to use of fossil fuels and coal mining as as sources of energy,
  6. Run for Pasig River – 10-10-10, 11-20-2011 and Run, Roll Bike of 2012,
  7. Establishment of BayaniJuan, a relocation site for the estero relocates in Calauan, Laguna,
  8. Quest for LOVE Project aimed in helping underdeveloped communities.

All the notable projects she started and pump-primed for the environment and for the communities will not be put to naught because many cause-oriented organizations like us will defend our environment and will continue her legacy for our Mother Earth. Green Party of the Philippines supports her vision of creating meaningful change for our country guided by truth, justice, integrity and the common good.

We subscribe and abide by two of her most noteworthy and remarkable quotes in protecting the environment as her life’s mission which says:

“For me, the environment has always been about people. Because there is an intimate relationship between people and the environment. If you really want to help the people, which is my passion, you really can’t do it if you’re not aware of the impact of the environment on their lives… It’s air, water, I mean this is part of life. How can you help people if the air is dirty, the water is dirty, polluted?”

And on alleviating poverty in this country “I have no doubt in my mind that we can get our country out of poverty. No doubt. But the resources of our country must be nourished and protected such that the greater majority benefits. Not exploited to benefit the few… I truly feel that the way for our country is for everyone to work together.”

”You will always be remembered Ms. Gina and we know in some way or another that you created little Gina Lopez in our hearts, in our minds and on our hands which will propel our passion towards a safe and green communities in this great nation! Maraming maraming salamat po!
