ALYANSA TIGIL MINA

 A coalition of organizations and groups

who have decided to collectively challenge

the aggressive promotion of large-scale mining in the Philippines.

WE ARE AGAINST MINING AS IT IS BEING PRACTICED TODAY.

The alliance aims to shift the policy framework on extracting minerals in the Philippines, from simply "extracting and profiting from mining minerals" to  "mineral management towards national industrialization". 

Duterte asked to stop Tampakan mining in Mindanao

Green group cites quakes and ASEAN statement to protect environment

 

Quezon City – Green group Alyansa Tigil Mina (ATM) asked Pres. Duterte to stop the Tampakan Copper-Gold Mining Project in Mindanao, citing the recent quakes caused by the Cotabato Fault System. 

In a letter received by the Office of the President last Nov. 4, 2019,  ATM sought clarification from the Office of the President about the reported reinstatement of the Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) of the Tampakan mining project.  The group demanded that a copy of such a reinstatement order should be disclosed to the public.

The alliance reminded Pres. Duterte that Tampakan’s ECC was cancelled by former DENR Sec. Gina Lopez in 2017, because of the company’s

failure to comply with conditions and permitting requirements set by the ECC.  ATM claimed that this compliance has not been met by the proponent.

Pahayag ng mga Katutubong Kababaihan

Pambansang Pagtitipon ng Katutubong Kababaihan 2017

“Our Stories, Our Struggles for Rights, for Justice"

Kami, mahigit isang daan na mga katutubong kababaihan mula sa 31 na katutubong komunidad ay nagtipon sa Lungsod ng Kalookan mula 24 hanggang 27 ng Hulyo, 2017 upang sama-samang ipahayag ang aming mga saloobin at pagsusuri sa kasalukuyang kalagayan at kaganapan sa aming komunidad, sa kalikasan at sa buong bansa. Kami ay mga kababaihang kumikilos noon pa man para sa depensa ng aming mga lupain at teritoryo, at sa pagtutulak ng aming mga karapatan bilang katutubong kababaihan. Kami ay bahagi ng mga organisasyon sa aming komunidad, gayon din sa iba’t ibang mga kilusan at kampanya para sa karapatan at tunay na pagbabago ng lipunan.

Kami ay mga kababaihan sa kanayunan, at ang aming mga lugar ang tunay na nakakaranas ng karukhaan at iba pang porma ng karahasan. Ang aming pagdalo sa pagtitipon na ito ay isang malakas at aktibong pagpapahayag na kaming mga katutubong kababaihan ay hindi mananahimik at kiming tatanggapin na lamang ang mga polisiya at mga pahayag ng administrasyon ng Pangulong Duterte, nang walang pagtatanong at kritikal na pagsusuri.

The Bolivian Government Must Stop Persecuting Those Defending Nature and Rights and Address the Real Problems

7 July 2017
Focus on the Global South


Pablo Solón, the Director of Fundación Solón, former Executive Director of Focus on the Global South, and former Bolivian Ambassador to the United Nations (UN), is being targeted by the Bolivian government for his vocal criticism of the government and the construction of two hydroelectric projects, El Bala and El Chapete in the Amazonian region. Based on the studies done by Geodata, an Italian company hired by the government to identify where the dams will be built, Solón says they will “inundate an area five times larger than the city of La Paz, displace more than five thousand indigenous peoples, deforest more than one hundred thousand hectares and will not be profitable for the country with the current prices of electricity in Brazil.”

PLEASE SIGN! PETITION: HUMAN RIGHTS DEFENDERS IN HONDURAS NEED PROTECTION

The Honduran state is failing to protect peaceful protestors. Communities in the Rio Blanco area have been protesting a proposed hydroelectric dam on their lands since the project was first tabled. These environmental and human rights defenders have been subjected to persecution, detention, threats, kidnappings and killings. María Santos Domínguez, is the co-ordinator of the Organización del Consejo Indígena del Río Blanco y del Sector Norte de Intibucá (Indigenous Council of Río Blanco and the North of Intibucá). She and her family were brutally attacked last week because of their activism against the dam. Sign the petition below to insist that the Honduran government investigates the attack and works to protect human rights defenders.
