Actress Alessandra de Rossi took to Twitter to call out the government for dumping synthetic white sand in Manila Bay. 

For days now, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has faced various protests from the public for dumping dolomite in Manila Bay for supposed rehabilitation which is actually bringing more harm than good to the environment. And Alessandra de Rossi, for one, is having none of the government’s decision to place white sand in the area.

In a series of tweets, Alessandra slammed the government’s move to place white sand especially during these times when there are other more pressing issues to focus on. 


“Pakibilis-bilisan naman ang paglatag ng white sand sa Manila Bay para sa mental health ng lahat. Baka sakaling wala nang magutom dahil busog na sa view. #ayudaparamasa,” she wrote.

Alessandra responded to a netizen who told her it’s part of the government’s plans to make Manila look more beautiful. 

According to the 36-year-old actress, not dumping garbage in Manila Bay is enough to help make Manila Bay look more beautiful. 

“Maganda ang Pilipinas noon pa. Hindi kailangan palitan ang kulay ng sand. Kung white nilagay ni God doon, doon sya. Yung bato dito, hayaan nyo sya. Wag niyo lang dumihan. Marami na ako napulot na diaper at bote sa mga beach trips ko. Ayoko din ng basura,” she stated.

Saying it would only make Manila Bay more beautiful on the surface, she responded to another netizen: “Parang retoke lang yan. You may get a nose or boob or whatever job, but if deep down inside you're still that same person, wag nalang. If it makes you a better person, by all means, do it! I go for retoke ng Manila Bay to fix what needs to be fixed!”

Alex went on to say that budget allocation is not a valid reason to justify their decision to push through with it. 

She wrote: “Ako din. Naka-allocate din lahat for 2020! But I moved all my shoots to 2021 because I cannot risk the lives of others. Pandemic eh. For now, unahin ko dapat kong unahin. Saka na yung alulod namin. Tulungan natin mga taong nangangailangan. Magtulungan tayo! Kung sino may budget!”
