Pushing Them Out of Their Land
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.
