The Save Palawan Movement, a multi-sectoral coalition of concerned environmental,
legal religious and other civic groups launched the “No to Mining in Palawan” signature
campaign last Thursday (February 3) in the hope of putting an end to mining activities in
Palawan, known as the Philippines’ Last Ecological Frontier.

The campaign aims to raise ten million signatures to deliver a strong message to the
Philippine and Palawan governments so that they would finally say no to mining in
Palawan and help protect one of the Philippines’ last remaining treasures.

Present at the launch were ABS-CBN Foundation Managing Director Gina Lopez,
Palawan Mayor Edward Hagedorn, “running priest” Fr. Robert Reyes, environment
leaders Clemente Bautista (Kalikasan People’s Network for the Environment) and Atty.
Jose Andres Canivel (Philippine Tropical Forest Conservation Foundation), and Rhodora
Angela Ferrer of the Catholica Educational Association of the Philippines.

They were joined by Kabang Kalikasan ng Pilipinas (WWF-Philippines) president Jose
Lorenzo Tan, country director for Conservation International Romy Trono, Atty. Gerthie
Mayo-Anda of Environmental Legal Asistance Center, executive director of Palawan
NGO Network Inc. Atty Bobby Chan, Tanggol Kalikasan executive director Atty. Rolly
Bisquera–Sheen, Alyansa Tigil Mina national coordinator Jaybee Garganera and various
leaders of the environmental movement in the country.

The ten million signature campaign came about after the killing of Dr. Gerardo “Doc
Gerry” Ortega, a civic leader who championed the protection of Palawan’s rich
biodiversity and an outspoken critic of mining operations in Palawan.

Filipinos from all walks of life are invited to sign the petition and ask their damily and
friends to do the same. For more information on the Save Palawan signature campaign
and Doc Gerry’s dream, visit the website http://www.no2mininginpalawan.com . For

Wala ka rin sanang kakainin pag tuloy yan. Most of the products or foods are from Palawan. Would you mind to think twice before you say something? I think that would be better.

itigil n puh ang paninira sa palawan. anu bang gingawa ng mga opisyal dyan, bakit sila mismo hindi mapatigil ang ganitong gawain, o sila rin mismo ang me gusto kasi nakikinabang. kailangan pa bang ibang tao ang mag simula ng pagpapahalaga dyan?

Sumasang-ayon ako sa kilos na ito at nakikiisa ako sa pagpapatigil ng minahan para sa ating Inang Kalikasan. sana lang mas manaig ang kilos protestang ito para sa ikabubuti ng ating Inang Kalikasan. Mahirap po ang sitwasyon na huli na ang lahat at dumating na sa puntong wala na, sira na, Magsama-sama po tayo para sa KALIKASAN.

Itigil na po ang minahan sa Palawan!

sayang naman ang mga magagandang tanawin sa Palawan kung magtatayo sila ng minahan doon.

huwag sana silang magalit sa pagtutol ng mga tao dahil para sa ating bansa din naman ito.

sana nababasa nila ang ating mga sinasabi para magising na sila sa katotohanan ...

Kanina, nakinig ako kay Atty. Grizelda Gerthie Mayo-Anda sa kanyang forum about Mining in Palawan.
masnaliwanagan ako sa naiidudulot ng pagmimina...

Dati hati ang aking pananaw na: masisira ang kalikasan na aking tinututulan ngunit may metal na kapalit na kailangan natin na hindi ko naman matatanggi.
Pero kanina, natutunan ko na higit na masmahalaga pa rin ang pagprotekta ang Kalikasan kesa sa paburan ang naibibigay ng pagmimina.

Kagaya nga ng sabi sa isang video presentation "Kailangan natin ng bakal pero higit sa lahat, maskelangan natin ng bigas."
"at bakit may cellphone kami, may sasakyan kami. Lahat yan galing sa pagmimina.Sabi nila 'wag na kayong gumamit ng cellphone', tatanggapin ko ang hamon nila pero wag din kayo kakain ng produkto ng magsasaka, hahamonin ko kayo ng isang buwan, titngnan natin kung sino sa atin ang mamamatay ng dilat ang mata."- ayon kay Pastor Job Lagrada.

Definitely I say no to mining in Palawan! We should preserve the natural resources there! Aside from that, it would create a big impact on the agricultural livelihood of the farmers in Palawan! I'm appealing to our president to put this to an end! Before it's too late!

Siguro sa mga anti-mining wag tayong BIAS... Imagine ang sinisira ng mga small-scale miners na talamak sa bansa.. Bakit ang inyong kinagagalitan ay yung mga legal at may mga environmental initiatives na Mining Industry? Yes, you can't live without food from our resources but as of today you can't live without mining products either.. Look at yourself guys, sa appliances sa inyong tahanan, sa mga jewelry na inyong sinusuot, sa mga cellphone at computers na inyong ginagamit, sa mga daan, sa mga sasakyan... In this present time I doubt if you can live without the product of mining... To all ANTI-MINING, if you really are then wag kayong gumamit ng mga produkto ng mina.. Baka pa mapasama sa advocacy nyo.. :sigh:

tama bah?

We must save not only palawan but also other provinces... Mining destroys our beautiful and sacred places... why sacred?... because there are different species living in Philippines that can't be found in other places... If their natural habitat will be destroyed they will be endangered... Palawan is one of our tourist destination...

Bakit d nalng nila itigil..bulag at bingi ba sila hindi na dapat pa gnagawa yan dapat tinitigil na agad nakikita naman siguro ng lahat ang masamang dulot nito hindi lang sa nature pati nadin sa mga tao lalo na sa paglaganap ng turismo sa ating bansa.
