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".

PRESS STATEMENTE_RELEASE TEMPLATE (27).jpg

 

ATM welcomes the instruction of Pres. Marcos to the DENR to strengthen its regulatory powers over mining projects. Both mining laws that regulate small-scale and large-scale mining are outdated and not designed to ensure safety of small-scale miners nor respond to the challenges of climate change or impacts.

 

We hope that Sec. Yulo-Loyzaga will consider publicly supporting the proposed Alternative Minerals Management Bill (AMMB) in Congress, as a starting point to crafting new policies in mining at the DENR.

 

Our alliance is also recommending that DENR consult local governments and indigenous communities to help identify policy reforms in effectively managing the country’s mineral resources. It is important that DENR ensure that Filipinos benefit from minerals and that mining does not displace affected communities or bring additional environmental and social problems with their operations.

PLEASE SIGN! PETITION: Cancel OceanaGold's Mining Contract NOW

Respect the people’s will! Stop illegal operations in Didipio mines!

Environmental and human rights groups in the Philippines support the resistance led by the Didipio Earth Savers Movement (DESAMA) and Didipio-Watch against destructive and irresponsible mining in Nueva Vizcaya.

Last 21 June 2019, farmers and indigenous peoples from the village of Didipio, in Kasibu town, Nueva Vizcaya set-up a peoples barricade to prevent the illegal operations of Didipio mines, owned by OceanaGold Philippines, Inc. (OGPI). OGPI’s mining contract (Financial and Technical Assistance Agreement # 1) expired last June 20, 2019, and failed to secure a renewal of this agreement.
