Environmental advocates hold pre-SONA
Green March and Festival
Call for the immediate passage of the ‘green bills’ in PNoy’s last SONA

“It’s not hard to be green! Pass the ‘green’ bills NOW!”

Two days before President Noynoy Aquino’s last State of the Nation Address (SONA), over 700 environmental activists marched around the Quezon Memorial Circle, last Saturday, July 25, for the annual pre-SONA Green Festival.The event called on legislators and the Aquino administration to fast track the enactment of the three Green Bills—the National Land Use Act (NLUA), the Forest Resources Bill (FRB), and the Alternative Minerals Management Bill (AMMB).

The ‘green’ advocates demanded President Aquino to include thethree pro-environment bills in his SONA this coming July 27, and urge the legislators to pass the three bills as a legacy of the 16th Congress to future generations.

“We are disappointed with the slow progress of the green bills in both the Senate and House of Representatives,” stated Akbayan Rep. Angie Katoh."We badly need to inform the public and the government of the relevance of these green bills, in light of the recent disasters and predicted dangers caused by natural calamities. We must not forget that environmental concerns are critical issues that affect the nation.”

“Currently, there are many other issues that creates more noise than the green bills, such as the Bangsamoro Basic Law, the Binays, and of course, the 2016 elections. The Congress should not neglect its responsibility to ensure a more sustainable and disaster-resilient environment through the passage of these bills,” explained Ifugao Rep. Teddy Baguilat, co-author of the three green bills.

ATM Statement on Pope Francis’ Encyclical “Laudato Sii" (“Praise Be To You”)
18 June 2015

As his holiness Pope Francis said in his homily on February 9, 2015 in Vatican, “A Christian who does not protect creation, who does not let it grow, is a Christian who does not care about the work of God … And this is the first response to the first creation: protect creation, make it grow.”


It is with this that Alyansa Tigil Mina (ATM), an alliance of environmental and human rights groups composed of more than a hundred organizations and partners all over the Philippines expresses its full appreciation and support to his Holiness, Pope Francis, on this monumental day, June 18 of the present time as he gives light to one of the world’s most pressing issues: the environment and climate change.

In celebration of the World Environment Day 2015, human rights and environmental defenders launch a campaign that tells the public and the government that “It’s Never Hard to be Green.”  

Green defenders led by SOS Yamang Bayan Network (SOS YB), Campaign for Land Use Policy Now (CLUP Now!), Forest Resources Bill Network (FRB) and Youth for Rights (Y4R) are behind the campaign in push for the enactment of three green or environmental bills pending in the 16th Congress.

“The campaign seeks to enlist the support of the youth. It proposes an innovative approach through the appropriation of “COSPLAY” into CAUSEPLAY to highlight the seriousness of the issue packaged in a popular form.” Explained Y4R spokesperson Danica Duno.

According to the group, the campaign will inform and inspire the public about the international standards set by the United Nation Environment Program, that safe, balanced and healthy environment is essential to the realization of human rights not only of the present but of the future generation.

Rep. Teddy Brawner Baguilat Jr, one of the main sponsors of the three bills—Alternative Minerals Management Bill (AMMB), Forest Resources Bill (FRB) and the National Land Use Act (NLUA)—emphasized the importance of the three bills in addressing the environmental concerns in the country. He said: “The three bills is a call for fundamental change – in mindset, in behavior, in our whole lifestyle—and it is timely that we remind ourselves our roles as mere stewards of the earth on World Environment Day.”

Alyansa Tigil Mina Statement For Earth Day
22 April 2015

A Restrained Celebration for Mother Earth

atm-logoOn April 22, 2015, the world celebrates the 45th anniversary of Mother Earth. Alyansa Tigil Mina, a coalition of more than a hundred organizations joins this celebration of 2015 Earth Day. As an environmental and human rights organization, today is celebrated as we renew our vows of upholding environmental and climate justice. With this vow, we stand firm and vigilant to pursue justice. Sadly however, the glaring truth is that this celebration is not one of victory, but a swelling of renewed commitment drawn from defeats.

This is not a time for the country to hold its head high as the world celebrates mother Earth. This is a time for vigilance; a time to collect dues from those who are accountable for the continuous destruction of our environment as 2015 did not start off promisingly for environmental advocates especially to those upholding advocacies on anti-mining.

Assaults against Mother Earth were felt by anti-mining communities.  The continuing illegal activities for the Free and Prior Informed Consent (FPIC) of Blaans in Tampakan, South Cotabato; the lifting of suspension orders against mining companies in Zambales; MMDC’s disregard of the Temporary Environmental Protection Order (TEPO) in Cantilan, Surigao del Sur; the resumption of ore hauling in Manicani island, in Guian, Samar; the illegal expansion activities of Oceana Gold in Nueva Vizcaya; and just recently, the reinstatement of Intex’s Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) in Mindoro are all consequential proof of this.  These were successful resistance of communities against mining companies, but have been reversed by misplaced government priorities and ineffective regulations.
