Women and children struggle against Anglo American…

“Bell of Valor of Women and Children” (Kampana ng Katapangan ng mga kababaihan at Kabataan) is a short video documentary about women and children defending their land and survival against Anglo-American Mining Company,one of the biggest mining companies of the world, in joint venture with Manila Mining Company (MMC). They are at the forefront of the campaigns to “Stop Mining in Watershed Areas and Food Sovereignty first” in Caraga and pushing for the Alternative Mining Bill (AMB) R.A. 6342. In November 2008, Anglo American announced that it was pulling out of the project, citing community opposition as one of the main reasons. But the struggle continues. The community is set to file a case for the cancellation of MMC’s mining permit. The Barangay and Municipal councils have decided for a moratorium on the issuance of mining permits in their village. The villagers are strengthening links with allies in the local, national and international arena.
