Bosses were not heard, rights and green groups dismayed for non-inclusion of AMMB in PNoy’s list of priority measures

PRESS RELEASE

August 1, 2014

Bosses were not heard, rights and green groups dismayed for non-inclusion of AMMB in PNoy’s list of priority measures

Human Rights and environmental defenders are saddened that the legislation of the proposed Alternative Minerals Management Bill (AMMB) that would scrap the Mining Act of 1995 was not included in the priority measures released to media by the Office of the President.

SOS Yamang Bayan, a network of civil society organizations working for the legislation of the AMMB or House Bill No. 984 expressed their dismay over the refusal by President Aquino to heed their call to certify the bill as urgent.

The group launched a campaign last year which called on government to prioritize people above profit.  They intensified the said campaign, dubbed as “Dapat Tao Muna Hindi Mina! Dapat AMMB Isabatas Na!” weeks before the last State of the Nation Address (SONA) of President Aquino on July 28 to try to convince him to certify the AMMB as an urgent measure

As part of the week-long pre-SONA campaign expressing their demands for President Benigno Aquino III (“Sa SONA: #DapatTaoMunaHindiMina! #DapatAMMBisabatasNA! Campaign) to Scrap the Mining Act of 1995, rights groups and anti-mining activists staged a pre-SONA creative picket protest in front of Mining Geo-Science Bureau (MGB) compound in North Avenue, Quezon City.

Mimicking a “Placards dance” usually seen in Football games ceremony, the group performed their own to creatively deliver to the government and to the public their demands and to reiterate the state of the peoples’ rights and environment in mining affected communities.

“We strongly demand that the Aquino administration act decisively on the issues of human rights and environment destruction.  We demand government’s respect, protection and fulfillment of our peoples’ rights and protection of our environment from corporate greed and impunity,” said Emmanuel Amistad, Executive Director of the human rights group Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP).

“Inuuli-ulit po namin ang panawagan sa pamahalaan. Dapat kalikasan at tao ang inuuna hindi ang hungkag na kinikita ng pamahalaan at interes ng mga ganid sa tubo na mga korporasyon sa pagmimina,” Amistad lamented.
