Three main characters, all from Ifugao communities will tell their stories why they decided to join the anti-mining organizations in their villages after selling their agricultural lands to the Australian mining company.
This video will discuss alternative economic activity to destructive large-scale mining operations and their determination to oppose destructive mining practices in their community.
One of the main objectives of this video is to be an eye-opener to the other indigenous tribes who have no knowledge at all what are those consequences that might happened to them and to the environment once the destructive mining operations will continue.
This video was documented only in 2009, in Kasibu, Nueva Vizcaya and in the villages of Didipio, Alimit and Malabing in particular.
"We do not want the people of Alimit and Malabing Valley to experience the human rights violations and environmental destruction we have suffered under OceanaGold. We are working towards stronger and more solid collaboration with these areas so we will be able to defeat our common enemies, the large-scale mining corporations and the national government who fervently favors their interests over ours," - Peter Duyapat of Didipio Earth Saver's Movement Association (DESAMA)
