Alyansa Tigil Mina demand accountability for pro-mining policies

Alyansa Tigil Mina marched their way to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources office in Quezon City as they demand accountability for pro-mining policies by the Duterte Administration in commemoration of the enactment of the Mining Act of 1995 (RA 7942) 27 years ago.

Among the pro-mining policies of Duterte is the issuance of EO 130 which reversed the gains achieved during the time of late Gina Lopez, Imposition of DAO 2021-40 which lifts the ban on open-pit mining, and declaring mining as an essential industry.
