Philippines: ringing in the changes with new mining bill

Green Marker Philippines: ringing in the changes with new mining bill

Friends of the Earth Philippines/LRC-KsK has worked with and actively supported indigenous peoples and rural communities suffering the impacts of mining for many years. Mining depletes non-renewable resources, and has massive societal and environmental impacts, yet the Philippine government’s legislation and policies have remained largely pro-mining since 1995, when the Philippine Mining Act was passed.
