"It is time to finally draw the line on who are the climate criminals and who are the climate champions," said Clemente Bautista, national coordinator of Kalikasan.
When it comes to continuing mining ..., 17 Sept 2015 [cached]
When it comes to continuing mining plunder, Binay is no different from the Aquino administration and their presidential bet Mar Roxas," said Clemente Bautista, national coordinator of Kalikasan PNE. Binay was the keynote speaker during the annual international mining conference of the CoMP, where he was quoted in saying that his presidency will be promoting a mining investment-friendly climate "by honoring contracts and by not changing the rules midstream. Binay also promised the intensification of Public-Private Partnerships (PPP), a pillar industry privatization program of the Aquino government. "By promising a 'business-as-usual' atmosphere in the mining policy, Binay is effectively declaring his all-out support to destructive large-scale mining policies and projects being opposed by communities. His statement means he fully supports the Egerton large-scale mining project in his home province Batangas, the bloody Tampakan mine project of Australian-owned SMI-Indophil in South Cotabato, and the rampant Chinese black sand mining in the Cagayan and Ilocos provinces." Bautista furthered that "Binay's promotion of PPPs in front of large-scale miners is an expression of intent to further railroad mining projects owned by private corporations, instead of nationalizing such a critical industry to ensure its regulation and long-term development pathway. This means the government will build roads, bridges, ports and other infrastructure for the operation of mining companies using taxpayer's money." Earlier in a business forum, Binay said he planned to strike down the 60-40 ownership clause in the economic provisions of the Philippine constitution to attract foreign mining investors to the standardization of 100-percent foreign ownership of mining projects. "Binay has demonstrated himself as a willing mouthpiece for so-called 'responsible miners' who claim they are environmentally and socially responsible. But these 'responsible miners,' especially the biggest ones that sponsored the CoMP's mining conference, are responsible for the formation of paramilitary groups alongside military 'investment defense forces' that militarize communities opposed to large-scale miners. The sponsors of the conference are also replete with track records of severe environmental pollution and destruction, and land-grabbing and economic dislocation," Bautista asserted. Kalikasan PNE, alongside other groups such as indigenous people's federation Katribu and the Defend Patrimony Alliance, held a protest action outside the CoMP's conference when it opened last September 15, to demand accountability from the conference's sponsors who are known to have sponsored or benefited from paramilitary groups in the CARAGA region where Lumad leaders Dionel Campos and Datu Juvello and Lumad school director Emerito Samarca was recently killed by the paramilitary group Magahat-Bagani. "If the promises we are seeing from presidential aspirants in the 2016 elections are of any indication, it seems we will see more of the current Aquino administration's legacy of mining destruction and plunder. Some of the sponsors of the CoMP's mining conference are the same political funders who supported the Aquino presidency, so we can expect more of the same anti-people, anti-environment policies and programs if mining funds will fuel the campaign of the likes of Binay," ended Bautista.
"The unchecked poaching in Mt. ..., 20 Aug 2015 [cached]
"The unchecked poaching in Mt. Hamiguitan, despite being a protected area and a recently declared world heritage site, stems from the lack of funding, manpower, and other capacities put into enforcing the protection of the Philippine Eagle and other endangered and threatened biodiversity in the said wildlife sanctuary," said Clemente Bautista, national coordinator of Kalikasan PNE.
"The demise of Pamana demonstrates how grossly incapable our government's biodiversity conservation program is, and how lacking the environmental education is among local communities that are should be the state's primary partner in protecting our endangered Philippine Eagles and addressing wildlife poaching in Mt. Hamiguitan," Bautista furthered.
Bautista said there are a number of neglected policies upon which the education, capacity building, and safeguarding of our protected wildlife can be implemented, including Republic Act No. 9303 or the Mt. Hamiguitan Range and Wildlife Sanctuary Act, RA 9512 or the National Environmental Awareness and Education Act, and RA 9147 or the Wildlife Resources Conservation and Protection Act.
"While wildlife shooting has been a constant threat to 90 percent of the eagles released into the wild by the Philippine Eagle Foundation, the worsening destruction of their habitat put them in this perpetually threatened state in the first place. Despite the declaration as a world heritage site of Mt. Hamiguitan, the site where Pamana was released, we still do not have enough manpower to secure an area of such globally important status. Worse, the Aquino government continues to allow logging and mining concessions in the area," lamented Bautista.
The dwindling population of Philippine Eagles means we are still failing at protecting our forests," explained Bautista.

A broad national petition to scrap the Mining Act is fast reaching an initial target of 20,000 signatures, a clear demonstration of the people's stand against foreign mining plunder," said Clemente Bautista, national coordinator of the Kalikasan People's Network for the Environment.
The landslides in Semirara was once a tragedy, but for it to occur twice proves that so-called responsible mining is a farce," said Bautista.
KALIKASAN | Aquino’s ‘null, void’ declaration of South Cotabato mining ban a gross disrespect of UN Special Rapporteur on internally displaced persons, 3 Aug 2015 [cached]
This is a gross disrespect not only to the UN rapporteur, but most especially to the communities, institutions and people's movements who continue to suffer from and resist militarization and displacement that the Tampakan mine has been inflicting for more than two decades in Mindanao," said Clemente Bautista, national coordinator of the Kalikasan People's Network for the Environment.
We have proven our people power when we kicked out Glencore from Mindanao, and we must strengthen the people's resistance further to ensure the defense our communities, ecosystems, and natural resources," said Bautista.
The issue of the Tampakan mine was raised as a main concern in the recently concluded International People's Conference on Mining 2015, held in Quezon City, Philippines, in which more than 140 participants from over 29 countries gathered to discuss and strategize various mining concerns and campaigns.
"Despite its pull-out, Glencore is still accountable for the ongoing social costs and persisting environmental threats of the Tampakan mine as it played a significant role in utilizing atrocious tactics in attempting to push the project towards commercial operations. We will work together with the various groups across the globe from the recently held International People's Conference on Mining to coordinate efforts in holding Glencore and the Aquino government to their ongoing crimes to the people and the environment," said Bautista.
