      Cagayan de Oro, Philippines

In support of Archbishop Antonio Ledesma’s call to monitor all mining activities and their effect on the environment, we are concerned Cagayanons, invoking the right of the people to information on matters of public concern as enshrined in Section 7 of the Bills of Rights of the 1987 Constitution, would like to secure copies of all the mining and quarrying permits issued by the City Government of Cagayan de Oro to all mining companies and individuals under its jurisdiction. We would want to find out whether these operators comply with prevailing laws on Mining, and to take the appropriate action thereof.

We are disturbed by reports that some 400 farmers engaged in vegetable farming along Iponan River are adversely affected by heavy siltation because of the unabated mining activities in the outlying barangays. We believe that the heavy siltation of this river has caused the diminution of farm productivity which may pose a threat on our food security and deprive the farmers a legitimate means for decent living.

      Because there's no such thing as responsible mining.

      Mining, legal or illegal, need to stop to give a chance for the land and Mother Nature to recoup because the mountains are rendered carved and barren, the waterways are heavily silted, flora and fauna are dying and the people themselves are not benefiting economically from it.

      1) The river is CDO's identity; 2) and the destruction and misuse of natural resources should always be opposed. Taking responsibility for what is ours begins with us.

      Why should I not sign? Shall we wait for the next Sendong? Shall we continue to allow former mayor Emano to ravage our lives?

      the governed has the right to demand for an accounting from the ones who governed. transparency, accountability and good governance are not just mere words or propaganda slogans but are basic principles enshrined in the constitution and in the bill of rights.
