[Event] Launching of the ATM Mining Hell Week
Launching of the ATM Mining Hell Week
Every March and September, Alyansa Tigil Mina (ATM) embarks on a Mining Hell Week (MHW) to surface the issues surrounding destructive large-scale mining and its impact on mining-affected communities.
The March MHW is to denounce the continued implementation of the flawed Philippine Mining Act, while the September MHW is to counter the narrative of the mining industry led by the Chamber of Mines of the Philippines (COMP) to entice more investors and companies to dig minerals in the Philippines.
This September 2021, the COMP did not organize a mining conference. Nevertheless, ATM deems it crucial to counter the pro-mining stance of the Duterte regime and the agenda of the COMP in the coming elections. ATM will challenge the proposed continuity of exploiting the country’s natural resources at the expense of nature and marginalized communities.
With this, ATM invites you to watch the Online Press Conference “#NeverForget ML (Mining Legacies from Marcos and Duterte” and join its call for the revocation of President Duterte’s EO 130, the government’s mining policy that practically reverses the gains achieved against destructive mining.
WHEN: October 25, 2021 | 10:00AM | Monday | Live at ATM Facebook page
