Cebu Road Revolution: Freedom from Pollution

Road Revolution is a national campaign that calls the government to pass an ordinance to convert all existing roads within our City to favor people instead of favoring motor vehicles. In the said petition, it was requested that the existing roads be divided longitudinally into four parts: All-weather side-walks and pathways — 30%; Bicycle lanes — 30%; Filipino-made collective and non-pollutive transportation systems — 30%; and Greenbelts for edible gardens — 10%.

On June 12, 2011, the whole street of OsmeƱa Boulevard will be closed, allowing pedestrian, bikers, runners to enjoy the street and pollution-free. Let us all join this momentous day to preserved our city and the future of the little ones.
