WHAT IS TAO MUNA-HINDI MINA! CAMPAIGN?
Members of Civil Society, Faith based organizations and Human Rights Defenders working against destructive mining in the country are launching a campaign dubbed “TAO MUNA HINDI MINA!”. It is a campaign to assert that government as duty bearer should uphold human rights and protect the environment, and should conduct its affairs consistent with human rights standards and principles.
The campaign will be highlighted by a 10 point Human Rights Agenda on Mining which will be popularized online and offline in order to generate the broadest possible support and endorsement by different sectors at the national and local levels.
This will also complement our advocacy for the enactment of the Alternative Minerals Management bill and the scrapping of the Philippine Mining Act of 1995 among the candidates and the voting public especially during the election campaign period this April.
We will be holding a nationally coordinated symbolic action on April 23 coined Tao Muna Hindi Mina-Miting de Avance for the 10 point HR Agenda on Mining to make it appropriate in time for the election and the earth day commemoration as well.
We invite everyone to join us in this campaign by affixing your signature for official endorsement of the 10 point HR Agenda on Mining.
