Environmentalists push closure of mines

Members of environmentalist group Kalikasan People’s Network for the Environment (Kalikasan PNE), together with Mindanao Indigenous federation KALUMARAN and other Mindanao-based people’s organizations, hold a protest in front of Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) office in Quezon City on Monday. The group urged the environment department to uphold 28 mining closure orders released in 2017, on the occasion on the 24th year of the Philippine Mining Act of 1995.
