ATM reaction on Sen. Lacson’s statement about mining in the Boy Abunda interview.
Alyansa Tigil Mina (ATM) | January 25, 2022 Responsible Mining is FAKE NEWS.
There is no legal definition of “responsible mining”, so there are no policies or parameters to measure. Then we can’t hold DENR or the mining companies accountable when they fail to comply with their claimed “responsible mining”.
Accepting campaign funds from mining companies compromised the elected official. He or she will never be objective in assessing the performance of a corporation if it’s compliant with Envi laws or not.
It will also be difficult for an elected official to refuse the lobbying agenda of an industry that contributed to his campaign. Worse, if the elected official is actually a beneficial owner of a mining company, as we publicly know some elected officials are.
