Philippines Black Market is China's Source of Cheaper Gold
 
01:53
High world gold prices are a boon to small-scale miners in the southern Philippines these days, and a mine worker can earn ten times as much as a laborer in Manila. Mr Landa needs it to support his eight children. [Camilo Landa, Mine Worker, Father of Eight]: "I'll be able to buy rice to eat. I can pay our loans. I'm happy." But while miners are flourishing, the Philippine government is losing out. By law, gold produced in the country's small mines should be sold to the Central Bank, to pump up their reserves. But the bank's purchases have plummeted by 98 percent this year. Many point out that a newly imposed tax on gold is the reason behind the rise in smuggling. Officials and sources say the gold is being smuggled to Hong Kong, before disappearing into China. [Leo Jasareno, Director, Bureau of Mines and Geosciences]: "Our suspicion is that it's either black market or smuggled out of the country. So 80 percent of gold, lost." [Arthur Uy, Owner of Small Mines and Local Governor]: "The black market now is flourishing, so they would sell now their produce now to the black market." Reports of illegal sales to China are unverified, but official data from Hong Kong shows gold shipments from the Philippines went from a mere 24 pounds in the year 2000 to 90 tons in 2010. But in a puzzling discrepancy, Philippine customs only accounted for three percent of that volume. The government is set to impose strict control on small scale mines. Illegal mining now accounts for up to 15 percent of global gold output.

Ted Failon investigates on the effects of Mining in the Philippines
 
20:25
Veteran broadcaster Ted Failon weigh the pros and cons of mining in the Philippines and assess if the revenues generated from it are worth its negative impacts on the environment. This was aired on June 16 in "Failon Ngayon. Mining experts estimate that the Philippines' potential mineral resources are reportedly worth P54.5 trillion, which could possibly pay the country's large foreign debt. But in exchange of this fortune, mining poses calamities and serious health hazards. Ruthless deforestation in the mountains of CARAGA, the Philippines' mining capital, caused severe flooding in several areas that took the lives of many locals. Meanwhile, residents in Claver, Surigao Del Norte, have acquired various lung illnesses, cough, and flu due to the harmful matter and gases emitted by mines in the area. Even their beaches turned red and were rendered unusable as an effect of Laterite. Does the country benefit enough from the environmental impacts of mining? Is it worth destroying our natural resources considering that only 2% of the price of every exported mineral product goes to the government?

🇮🇳 India's Coal Rush | 101 East
 
25:11
India is hungry for energy. Over 173 power plants, all of them coal-fired, will be built to power the nation's high-tech industries and booming cities. This is accelerating an ongoing “coal rush” which has put our dirtiest fossil fuel at the heart of India’s breakneck growth, and could soon make a single state, Andhra Pradesh, one of the world’s top 20 carbon emitters. But not everyone is convinced that this boom is a blessing. Physicist and businessman, Asoke Agarwal believes that India is heading for disaster: "It is time that we think of a more austere way of living. That was what India was famous for earlier. Today we have just aped the West. The West has gone at a speed at which they are destroying themselves, and we are following them. So it is high time that we realise that there is something drastically wrong with our economy." On 101 East, filmmaker Orlando de Guzman takes a dark journey through the coal belt of Jharkhand and West Bengal, to look at the winners and losers of this booming industry.

🇧🇩 Bangladesh's Disappearing Activists | Missing in Action | 101 East
 
25:11
Bangladesh's Disappearing Activists: Missing in Action Political turmoil escalates in Bangladesh amid growing calls for an independent investigation into the mysterious disappearance of scores of opposition activists. The BNP, Bangladesh's main opposition party, organised protests across the country after one of its regional leaders, Elias Ali, went missing on April 17. On 29 April, 2012, at least nine bombs were detonated in central Dhaka during a nationwide protest. About 100 opposition officials have been charged with carrying out the explosions at key government locations, while 27 others were arrested for violence, including Sirajul Haq, an ex-junior health minister, and Kamruzzaman Ratan, a former BNP student wing leader. Police have raided the homes of several top opposition members and some opposition leaders have gone into hiding. Human rights groups claim more than 100 opposition figures have gone missing since Bangladesh’s transition to democracy over four years ago. And local rights group Ain-O-Salish Kendra say that at least 22 people have disappeared this year. The elite anti-crime force Rapid Action Battalion, which has earned praise because of its fight against some radical Islamic groups in recent years, has been blamed for many disappearances. Ali is the highest profile opposition politician to have disappeared since Sheikh Hasina, the Bangladeshi prime minister, and her Bangladesh Awami League took power in January 2009. Today, the personal rivalry between Sheikh Hasina and opposition leader Khaleda Zia has split the country and analysts say the rule of law is weak with too much power allocated to security forces. As the political crisis deepens in this country of 160 million people, critics say not only its democracy but also its economy is at risk. Meanwhile, the opposition party and its 17 other allies say they plan to enforce "tougher" anti-government protests. They accuse police of using excessive force both during the recent anti-government protests and in police detention. Last August, MU Ahmed, an opposition lawyer, died in police custody. His wife Selina has filed a murder case against several high-ranking police and government officials. Statistics show that since the ruling Bangladesh Awami League came to power, murder in police custody has increased. Activists claim police are spared legal action as they act on directives from ruling party leaders. But the government denies the allegations. As tensions escalate, 101 East investigates Bangladesh's disappearing activists.

"These are our urgent demands. We are also challenging Philex to cooperate, be transparent and immediately open its mining compound and allow concerned organizations like CPA, including the media, to conduct independent fact finding and environmental investigation. With its own disclosure of 20 million metric tons (MMT) of mine tailings released from TP3 since the breach was first reported, the DENR should immediately conduct tests and analyse the samples it obtained, disclose the process and publicise the chemicals present," said CPA deputy secretary general Santos Mero. DENR earlier disclosed it chemical testing was not done because its machine broke down, but this is not an excuse...'' http://www.katribu.org/content/decommission-philex-tp3-and-justly-compensate-rehabilitate-affected-communities http://www.katribu.org/content/philex-arrogant-liar-katribu-partylist http://www.katribu.org/content/video-decommission-philex-tp3 *CSOS RELEASE RESULTS OF INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION ON PHILEX'S TAILINGS SPILL October 2, 2012 ''On September 16-17, 2012, a fact-finding mission team, lead by the National Secretariat for Social Action of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP-NASSA) and the Climate Change Congress of the Philippines (CCCP) together with representatives from Philippine-Misereor Partnership and its Northern Luzon Cluster, Caritas Baguio, Cordillera People's Alliance, Peace Foundation, Pambansang Kaisahan ng mga Magbubukid ng Pilipinas, Katribu Indigenous Peoples' Partylist, and Community Volunteer Missioners,conducted an independent investigation on the reported mining tailings leakage of Philex's Padcal Mine in Benguet. The first leakage incident happened on August 1, 2012, and was immediately followed by three succeeding leakages within the same month after the mining corporation's failed attempt to plug the hole in Tailings Pond Number 3 (the only operational tailings dam in the mining site) that had been causing the spills. On August 2, 2012, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) through its Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB), had suspended the mining operations of Philex Mining Corp. at Brgy. Padcal in Tuba, Benguet until the safety of its dam has been assured. DENR Secretary Ramon J. P. Paje confirmed that the suspension order remains in effect as of today...'' http://nassa.org.ph/?p=2056 *FACT-FINDING MISSION CONDUCTS PROBE ON PHILEX MINES' TAILINGS POND LEAKS 18 September 2012 ''...The Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) has earlier reported that on August 1, 2012, TP3 suffered a tailings spill where the tailings breached the lower portion of Penstock A and discharged tailings into the Balog River, a tributary of the Agno River. This was followed by three more major occurrences of tailings leaks up to August 30. The Environmental Management Bureau (EMB)-CAR estimated the volume of tailings discharged from August 1-14 at 6 million metric tons. To date, neither Philex mines nor the Mines and Geosciences Bureau have come out with an updated estimate on the total volume of the tailings that has already been discharged from TP3...'' http://nassa.org.ph/?p=1948 *BISHOP CALLS FOR PHILEX MINE CLOSURE ''Manila Auxiliary Bishop Broderick Pabillo said it is about time for Philex Mining Corp. to end its operation to save the area from further damage. Massive islands of rubbles and other mining waste from the Philex's tailings pond 3 in Benguet have been discovered in San Roque dam by an independent group composed of church and environment organizations investigating the waste leaks.

Deadly landslide hits Philippine island
 
01:04
MANILA, Philippines -- A landslide killed 25 people and injured 15 more in a mountainside area in Pantukan, Compostela Valley province before dawn Thursday, local officials said. Around 100 more residents are feared to have been buried by the landslide The Municipal Social Welfare and Development said the landslide occurred at 3:45 a.m. and affected families in Purok Diat Uno and Diat Dos in Barangay Napnapan. Senior Inspector Werenfredo Reidor of Pantukan police said residents, mostly families of miners, have long been advised to vacate because of mining activities in the area, but they refused to leave. "Matagal na sila pinapaalis sa area kasi meron nang malaking leak sa taas ng bundok, pero nagmamatigas pa rin yun mga residente doon," he said. Reidor said it had not been raining in the area where the landslide struck. "Sa ngayon wala pong ulan dito, kaya lang medyo maambon, pero dun sa area na pinangyarihan ng landslide, wala rin pong ulan," he said. Saul Pinggoy, a small-scale miner from Diat Uno, admitted the Mines and Geosciences Bureau and local officials had advised miners to leave the area because of the danger of landslides. "May babala na kasi dito yung municipality na mag-evacuate sila dito dahil may crack nga yung sa ibabaw [ng bundok] doon eh... talagang bibigay yung bundok, eh talagang bumigay na nga. Wala pong ulan nang mangyari ang insidente. Talagang maganda ang panahon," he told dzMM. He also said there are 50 bodies being retrieved from a mining tunnel called "700." Compostela Valley Gov. Arturo Uy said there has been a ban on mining activities in the area affected by the landslide, but some miners may have returned to search for gold. He said he will order a forced evacuation for residents living in similar high-risk areas in the province. What caused landslide? PAGASA officer-in-charge Graciano Yumul said the province only experienced light rains overnight. He said heavy rains in northern Mindanao in the past days may have triggered the mountain soil to erode. "Ang nagcause is ang 'antecedent rainfall', yung pag-ulan na nangyari bago ang lanslide, maidudugtong niyo na siya sa panahon ng Sendong kasi ang eastern Mindanao, kasama ang Compostela Valley, ay nakatangap ng maraming pag-ulan," Yumul told dzMM. "So ang nangyari, kauting tikitik na lang ng pag-ulan at 'yun ang nangyari, siya na ang nagdulot ng landslide." Environment Secretary Ramon Paje said the government had warned residents in the area of a landslide threat because of a crack on top of the mountain that has grown wider over time. "Mine-measure namin, lumalaki yung biyak sa ibabaw [ng bundok]. If you read articles at the time, we've been giving warning. We told that it is only a matter of time na bibigay yung mga lugar na iyon. Ito yung winarning namin sa kanila at the time," Paje told dzMM. "Ang agreement na namin, they (local government) will do forced evacuation. In fact, yung lugar na mismong tinamaan noon, nilikas dito sa baba. Subalit ang problema nila, eh talagang bumabalik ang tao," he added. Paje was referring to the landslide that occurred in Sitio Pangonason, Barangay Kingking in the same town April of last year where 13 persons died. Davao quake Executive Director Benito Ramos of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said a magnitude 3 quake that struck Davao Oriental at 12:01 a.m. may have contributed to the landslide. The epicenter of the quake was located 121 kilometers east of Mati, Davao Oriental. Davao Oriental is east of Compostela Valley. Ramos said members of the 71st Infantry Battalion of the Philippine Army have been deployed to the area to help in the search and rescue operations. Heavy equipment have also been sent in the landslide-hit areas.
