Hundreds marked Earth Day in the Philippines by protesting against Xstrata/Indophil’s Tampakan mine, and the coal fired power stations that are planned to power the mine which will be built by the associated local company Alsons. Separately, but on the same day, a People’s Court of the Communist New People’s Army (NPA) reiterated their guilty verdict on Xstrata and its local subsidiary. The ‘court’ called for NPA units “to arrest corporate executive officers of Xstrata-SMI and/or their top level official representatives and to bring them to the People’s Court for the proper legal and judicial proceedings” based on “revolutionary justice”.
