Filipinos curse their 'Mining Hell' – which includes Glencore Xstrata

Last week was designated 'Mining Hell Week' in the Philippines by national alliance Alyansa Tigil Mina, who mobilised local communities and their supporters to campaign in Manila around some key local and national issues. A delegation of bishops visited the President, primarily to reiterate calls for Glencore Xstrata's Tampakan mine to be stopped. They handed in a letter from the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines supporting that call.
