SALUNGGUHIT

Pushing Them Out of Their Land

By Jasper Almirante/ Bulatlat

With the reversal of the Supreme Court decision declaring the Philippine Mining Act of 1995 as unconstitutional, foreign mining giants are expected to have a field day extracting, large-scale, the Philippines’ mineral resources. To bear the brunt of the plunder are the country’s indigenous peoples, who are driven by foreign mining projects off their ancestral lands.

Salungguhit literally means to underline; figuratively, to underscore or highlight.
