Pres. BS Aquino's Executive Order 79 ..., 3 Mar 2014 [cached]
Pres. BS Aquino's Executive Order 79 further reinforced the wholesale of our mineralized lands and has done nothing to arrest the growing incidents of environmental destruction, land-grabbing and human rights violations," said Clemente Bautista, national coordinator of Kalikasan PNE.
Oceana Gold's commercial operations have caused the massive siltation in its adjacent rivers, reduced the productivity of surrounding agricultural lands, and exploited its workers with low wages and lack of benefits," noted Bautista.
Data recorded by the Task Force-Justice for Environmental Defenders have noted that the militarization of mining-affected communities under Aquino's mine investment defense policies have resulted in at least 30 victims of politically-motivated killings, 4 cases of frustrated murder, and 27 victims of strategic lawsuits against public participation or SLAPPs.
Bautista said the current policies not only caused destruction and rights violations during the operations of mines, but also encouraged the abandonment of unrehabilitated mines. The decade-long case of the Marinduque people filed against Marcopper mining corporation, now owned by Canadian-owned Barrick Gold, for causing one of the country's most severe mine spill disasters, was almost settled with a P20-million 'take it or leave it' deal that would have exonerated the company from causality. South Korean-owned Rapu-Rapu Minerals, which concluded its eight-year mining contract in the island of Rapu-Rapu in Albay, attempted to leave without implementing the rehabilitation provision of its contract.
"The attempts of Rapu-Rapu Minerals and Marcopper-Barrick Gold to skirt their responsibilities in rehabilitating their mine sites upon closure belie the claims of the mining industry lobby and national government that the mine operations in the country are socially and environmentally responsible. Let us also not forget how Philex Mining Corporation has weaseled its way out of its 20-million metric-ton tailings disaster last 2012 but has not fully rehabilitated Balog and Agno River and has not fully compensated all downstream communities they affected," added Bautista.
Bautista said the various Green Flag Day actions across the country united in their calls for the repeal of both the Mining Act of 1995 and EO 79. He said that a new people's mining policy should be ratified in order to reorient the mining industry towards ensuring needs-based utilization, environmental safety and people's welfare in the objective of ensuring genuine land reform, agricultural modernization and national industrialization.

KALIKASAN People's Network for the Environment is a network of people's organizations (POs), non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and environmental advocates. It believes that the struggle for the environment is a struggle of the people, thus all environmental action shall have the interest of the majority at their core. -- CLEMENTE BAUTISTA National Coordinator Kalikasan People's Network for the Environment (Kalikasan-PNE) No.26 Matulungin St. Bgy.

These are just a couple of pressing environmental problems we expect Aquino to greenwash with increasingly creative deception in his coming SONA," said Clemente Bautista, national coordinator of Kalikasan PNE.
To call this a step forward in making the utilization of mineral resources uplifting to the living conditions of Filipinos today and in coming generations is simply a lie," asserted Bautista.
These are long-standing, fundamental problems in our country's disaster risk reduction and management program that Aquino still can't answer," added Bautista.

The intensified militarization by the AFP have caused massive displacement and rights abuses, which threaten the Manobo's way of life and the land they have fought so hard to preserve," said Clemente Bautista, national coordinator of Kalikasan PNE and a delegate to the NSM.
The Talaingod Manobos also benefit from Pantaron's forests as it serves as their natural pharmacy where they source their traditional medicinal and herbal plants," explained Bautista.
"Publicly available documentation of its natural heritage is scant, but the Talaingod Manobos speak of a variety of birds including three kinds of hornbills, and lizards and amphibians such as forest frogs and monitor lizards. They also shared that there are wild pigs including dwarf ones, civets, and monkeys including tarsiers," Bautista furthered.
A host of large-scale mining corporations also have approved applications over the range," Bautista pointed out.
"The Talaingod Manobos under their organization Salugpungan Ta Tanu Igkanugon believe that it is these economic interests that are the real motive in the systemic displacement of their communities," said Bautista.
They need our support in filing complaints and lobbying against the military at the Commission on Human Rights, Philippine Congress, Philippine courts, and up to the level of the United Nations," ended Bautista.

It is the Talaingod Manobo's opposition to big mining, logging, agricultural plantations and other forms of development aggression that the BS Aquino government and the administrations before it have met with massive militarization and rights abuses," said Clemente Bautista, national coordinator of Kalikasan PNE.
"The forests in the Pantaron Range's Talaingod area has been preserved and conserved not through government efforts, but through the people's active defense of their ancestral lands and protection of their environment," asserted Bautista.
The AFP are known not only for violating civil rights, but also perpetrators of environmental crimes in Talaingod by paving the way for destructive and pollutive development aggression projects," said Bautista.
We condemn the latest example of this despicable tactic in the illegal detention of anti-mining activist Romeo Rivera Jr., under baseless charges that he is a member of the NPA," said Clemente Bautista, national coordinator of Kalikasan PNE.
In fact, Rivera was one of the organizers of the Earth Day forum we attended where Tampakan Panalipdan, a local alliance against Glencore-Xstrata-SMI's gold-copper project in which Rivera is one of the conveners, was formally launched," added Bautista.
Let us recall that Aquino himself defended the Tampakan project and even pushed for its environmental compliance certificate, despite clear documented evidence of its violation of humanitarian and environmental laws," explained Bautista.
But "The No Build Policy arbitrarily ..., 8 April 2014 [cached]
But "The No Build Policy arbitrarily bans dwellings within prohibited zones without social acceptability, feasible relocation, and livelihood alternatives presented to the displaced families," said Clemente Bautista, national coordinator of Kalikasan PNE. In a picket in front of the office of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources this Monday (April 7), Bautista likened the No Build Zone policy to "another storm surge," only this one is man-made and it can be prevented easily by way of revoking the policy.
The No Build Zone is "a total failure" in protecting coastal and marine ecosystems and ensuring the safety of coastal communities, Bautista said in an earlier statement.
"In spite of this policy, most of our public domain like mangrove areas and shorelines were converted to private ownership and were used for commercial purposes. This included the proliferation of fishpond production, private resorts, shopping malls, economic zones, and luxury subdivisions," said Bautista.
"Private corporations are in a mad race to convert thousands of hectares in Eastern Visayas and other Yolanda-affected areas into special economic zones, extractive industries and ecotourism projects, Bautista of Kalikasan PNE said.
"Reducing disaster risks in coastal areas cannot be achieved by removing communities away from their livelihood, and promoting the entry of coastal development aggression projects," said Bautista. On the contrary, he added, this policy would make them "more vulnerable to poverty and hunger, with or without the incidence of natural calamities"
If, on the other hand, the government would indeed go for minimizing risks of disasters and ensuring the people's safety from natural calamities, then mangrove rehabilitation areas and the construction of disaster-proof evacuation centers should be the bigger priority, Bautista said. He cited experiences showing how communities with healthy mangrove forest and those immediately evacuated in safe infrastructures mitigated better the impact of storm surges and flash floods.
