To: His Excellency, President Benigno Aquino III, DENR/MGB and LGU’s: STOP MINING IN HOMONHON ISLAND
HOMONHON ENVIRONMENT RESCUERS ORGANIZATION – HERO
Homonhon Island has a fragile habitat and ecosystem. The Island is within the Pacific Ring of Fire and tsunami prone area. Homonhon Island is an important landmark of Philippines History where it was where Ferdinand Magellan first landed on March 16, 1521 and marked the discovery of the archipelago and MINING in the Island had destroyed the Island’s habitat and ecosystem making the place a hostile place to live in and becoming life more miserable, destroyed the relationship among family members, relatives and friends, and understandably, giving an avenue to prominent government officials for corruption, AND MINING IN HOMONHON ISLAND IS VIRTUALLY “A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY”.
