Pnoy’s real bosses - the imperialist large-scale mining companies - are on a rampage in Mindanao!

Jorge Madlos (Ka Oris)
April 14, 2012

We believe that mining is legitimate for providing needed metals for the development of our industry. In this context, mining must, first and foremost, serve the interest of the majority of the Filipino people, and only secondarily to foreign interests. However, it is evident that P-Noy favors his real bosses, destructive, oppressive and exploitative large-scale imperialist mining companies, which plunder our finite mineral resources for their greed for super-profit, over the interest of his “bosses” – the Filipino people.

Abril 15, 2012

The National Democratic Front-Eastern Visayas today belittled the 8th Infantry Division's claims of working for "disaster mitigation" and "development projects" as psywar gimmmicks. "How can the 8th ID's new chief, Gen. Gerardo Layug, claim to be working for disaster mitigation when the military is paving the way in the region for large-scale mining, a major cause of natural disasters like floods and landslides?" said Fr. Santiago Salas, NDF-EV spokesperson. "The 8th ID's military operations under Oplan Bayanihan are meant to put down the people's resistance to large-scale mining, a centerpiece program of the Aquino regime.
