GREEN ALERT NEGROS- Taking the fight to another level, ten volunteers journey under the scorching heat, holding their signage and spirits high, telling the world that this idiocy against Negros forests must face its end.
"It's not about the numbers. It's all about the substance."
Walking as solid as ever, individuals from different walks of life- a doctor, student, teacher, and other concerned citizens, take the 4km protest last November 12, 2015 from Balay Bato, Marapara Heights all the way to Provincial Capitol, passing through the streets of Brgy. Bata and Lacson. Two hours of agony is nothing if for the greater good.

|Robinsons, we'll just move along. This is more important than malling.|
|Hear us, Starbucks. Don't just sit there.|
|Here we go...|
|Look at those mused faces. Just let us breathe and we'll tell you why we're here, okay?|
Upon reaching the destination, it was time to pull out the position paper and let the Provincial Government know we stand against Energy Development Corp regarding the geothermal power plant in Mt. Kanlaon Natural Park and their plans on Northern Negros Natural Park. Not just pleas, but the reality. Submission of the position paper to the Governor and Vice Governor's office took place right then.
Now that we have done our part, it is up to the leaders of our province to take action accordingly.
