Inquirer.net – Bongbong Marcos wants alternative to fireworks for New Year revelry
By Marc Jayson Cayabyab | Inquirer.net
Vice Presidential candidate and Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. urged the public to stop lighting firecrackers and indiscriminate firing during the New Year revelry.
“Let’s try alternatives to firecrackers and enjoy instead the fireworks handled by professional pyrotechnicians. Firecracker use has caused death and fires that razed scores of homes and destroyed properties… Almost 600 cases of firecracker-related injuries were recorded last year for the Christmas and New Year celebrations, while the police recorded 61 incidents of stray bullets,” Marcos said.
