Environmental advocates headed by Alyansa Tigil Mina (ATM) once again called for the protection of the environment against the destructive impacts of mining through a prayer rally and candle lighting activity in Plaza Raja Sulayman , on September 15, Tuesday, along Roxas Boulevard.

The prayer rally which is just a jump-starter for the coalition’s bi-annual week-long actions according to its National Coordinator Jaybee Garagnera, is the group’s welcome gesture to the participants of Mining Philippines 2015 Conference and Exhibitions currently being held at Solaire Resort & Casino Manila.

“It’s the time of the year where the Chamber of Mines in the Philippines (COMP) has once again opened our country for auction to the plunderers of our natural mineral resources.” says Garganera.

“As COMP welcomes the mining industry players including investors and mining firms, we want to make an equal effort to stress that our country is not for sale and our environment has suffered enough degradation and plundering from the extractive industry.” he added.

The prayer rally and candle lighting activity entitled DASAL PARA SA INTEGRIDAD NG BUHAY AT EKOLOHIYA (Prayer for the Integrity of life and creation) was attended by environmentalists and activists who are pushing advocacies and reforms against the current mining policies and situation in the country.

“Our activity is an answer to his Holiness Pope Francis’ call for integrity of creation.” says Garganera.

Ano ang #KarapatangPantaoDapat sa 2016 Elections campaign?

12309773_1024781987564453_8752896072210670681_oAng kahinaan ng tuwid na daan ni PNoy ay ang kawalan nito ng paninindigan sa maraming usapin ng karapatang pantao. Nangibabaw ang pagpapahalaga sa kita ng iilan at pag-unlad na agresibong sumagasa sa karapatan ng maraming sektor sa bansa.

Binabaha’t binabagyo na ng sakuna ng kalikasan, binabaha’t binabagyo pa ng paglabag sa karapatang pantao ang mga mamamayang mahirap sa bansa.

Marami sa mga kapatid na katutubo at lumad ang pinatay, inagawan at pinalalayas sa kanilang lupaing ninuno.  Habang humaharap pa ang mundo sa delubyo’t sakunang dulot ng papalalang pagpapalit ng klima, patuloy na winawasak ang kalikasan at hinuhuthot ang likas na yaman ng bansa ng mga malalaking abusadong kumpaniya, binibiktima pa ang kanayunan ng militarisasyon, pandarahas at gera.

Patuloy ang mga demolisyon sa ngalan ng kaunlarang nakabatay sa negosyo. Nanalanta rin ang kontraktualisasyon sa manggagawa habang patuloy ang atake sa karapatang mag-unyon at mag-organisa. Hindi naaksiyunan ang isyu ng mga magsasaka at mga kinukurap at pinagsasamantalahan pa ang pambansang kaban sa halip na matugunan ang mga pangangailangan.

Habang ang mga nagtatanggol naman ay pinapatay, kinakasuhan, hinuhuli at ikinukulong.  Sunod-sunod ang libelo sa mga Human Rights Defenders. Marami ang may banta sa kanilang seguridad.  Sa halip na proteksiyon ay pagsasawalang aksiyon pa sa mga kasong katulad ng tortyur, enforced disappearance, extra judicial killings atbp.

Nahirapan ding maipasa ang mga batas para sa mamamayan halimbawa ay ang Freedom of Information Bill, ang pagrepeal ng Mining Act of 1995 at pagreporma sa industriyang nananalanta sa buhay at kalikasan atbp.

Inuna kasi ang kita kaysa kapakanan at karapatan. Sinagasaan ang karapatan ng mamayan sa tuwid na daan, at siguradong  patuloy ang pagsagasa sa hahaliling administrasyon.

Human rights essential to democracy – UN Expert

December 2 , Manila -- The United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of Human Rights Defenders, Margaret Sekaggya, yesterday urged governments in Asia to recognize and protect persons working on human rights issues as “essential” to building democracy.

Sekaggya said, “human rights play an indispensable role in the defense of democracy” as she observed that democracy is at a cross roads in many countries in the region, where the military and conservative parties are making a comeback.

Ms Sekaggaya is in Manila in an unofficial capacity to participate in a regional forum of human rights defenders from 2 to 4 December, in which some 100 human rights activists from 16 countries in Asia are participating.

The UN independent expert from Uganda explained that “criticism and dissent are the lifeblood of a healthy democratic society.”

“Gintong Yaman ng Sinirang Bayan” is a satirical play about dreams, lives and relationships of families in a community in Northern Luzon that is being affected by the impending mining operation in the area.

The play is set in a barrio in Nueva Vizcaya during the course of a foreign mining company’s application in the province. The residents of the community find themselves with differing stands and opinions regarding the mining operation which poses to offer the residents with a golden opportunity.

Ruben, in his search for the golden dream and his quest to make it big, grabbed the scholarship grant from the mining company, much to his mother’s dismay.  Other inhabitants of the community engage themselves in heated debates regarding the positive and negative effects the mining operation will bring.  

Ruben must decide.  Will he go after his golden dream despite the disapproval of his loved ones and the destruction of his native land?  What is the truth behind his father’s death and what will its implication be on Ruben’s decision?

Manindigan sa Peace Talks!

Press Release
February 15, 2011


A civil society movement of peace advocates, non-government organizations and people’s organizations called as “Manindigan para sa Peace Talks” pressed for sincerity and transparency upon the resumption of formal talks between the government and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP).

“We believe that peace is our right and peace building is responsibility of all. The resumption of the peace talks between the government and the NDFP offers an opportunity to come to terms with the country’s best interests and work for peace that had eluded us for so long,” said Sr. Arnold Maria Noel, SSps of the Manindigan para sa Peace Talks.

Both the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and the government agreed to hold formal talks on February 15-21, 2011 in Oslo, Norway under the auspices of the Royal Norwegian Government which has been acting as Third Party Facilitator since 2001.
