Press Conference:
People of Mariveles, Bataan Against Senate Bill 2133: An Act Amending and Expanding the Charter of the Freeport Area of Bataan (FAB)

Where: Cielo's Restaurant, FAB, Mariveles

When: June 3, 2019, Monday, 11:00 a.m.

Various groups and local government officials of Mariveles Bataan will converge and hold a press conference to denounce the railroaded Senate Bill 2133, which already passed the Bicameral Committee last week without consultation with the people involved. This Bill, if passed into law, will give the Authority of the Freeport Area of Bataan (AFAB) summary demolition powers, removes the residential character of the FAB, and expands its territory to include several baranggays of Mariveles, among others. The people of Mariveles strongly condems these anti-people policies contained in the enrolled bill, and would like to ask President Duterte to veto it.

Your presence in this press conference is highly requested. Thank you. ###
