We are pleased to announce the successful conclusion of Atin Ito, second civilian supply mission to the West Philippine Sea.  

To reiterate, the mission has successfully achieved the following:

– Conducted a solidarity and peace regatta of 100 small fishing boats within our Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).
– Placed symbolic markers within the West Philippine Sea (WPS) EEZ.
– Distributed essential supplies, including fuel and food packs, to Filipino fishers operating in the area. A total of 6,000 liters of fuel and a thousand food packs were distributed to 670 fishers.

Additionally, the mission achieved a major victory on May 15 when its advance team reached the vicinity of Panatag Shoal, despite facing a massive and unlawful blocking force by China. The advance team successfully delivered supplies to the fishers in the area.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG), especially to the courageous captain and crew of PCG BRP Bagacay and PCG substations in Subic, Botolan, Masinloc and Iba, the Philippine Navy, the National Task Force on the West Philippine Sea, the AFP Northern Luzon Command, the Matalvis port and its staff, captains (Captains Totoy, Junar, Jory, Maximo, and Jegger) and the various crew of our civilian boats, MARINA, the local government of Subic, Sagip Kapamilya Foundation, and to our countless donors and supporters for their unwavering support throughout the voyage. Their efforts were crucial in ensuring the safety and success of this mission.

We also want to thank the media, both foreign and local, for telling the story of this mission and spreading it to different audiences. Their coverage has been vital in raising awareness and garnering support for our cause.

Mabuhay po tayong lahat! West Philippine Sea, Atin ito!
