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.
