Umabot na sa halos kalahating ektarya ang pinsala ng sumadsad na USS Guardian sa Tubbataha Reef.
Sa katatapos lamang ng forum sa University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman kasama ang ilang environmentalist group na Pamalakaya at Gabriela, sinabi ni Dr. Giovanni Tapang ng Task Force Save Tubbataha na maaaring lumawak pa ang 4,500 metro kwadradong pinsala sa naturang heritage site, dahil sa pagdaan ng Bagyong Crising.
Pinuna rin ng grupo ang pagbayad ng P38-milyong multa ng Amerika para sa pinsala na maliit umano kumpara sa $15-milyon na ibinayad ng US Navy sa kahalintulad na kaso sa Hawaii noong 2009.

Environmental and women’s groups are demanding ”justice beyond monetary compensation” for the USS Guardian’s grounding of the Tubbataha Reef National Park, saying that the incident is a blatant example of US disrespect for Philippine patrimony and natural resources.
“We want indemnification beyond financial compensation, the prosecution of liable officials and the serving of due punishment, and the payment of all charges necessary to restore Tubbataha to its pristine state before the grounding,” said Kalikasan People’s Network for the Environment National Coordinator Clemente Bautista, Jr.
