How does it Happen?
I'm so sad when I learned that the mining company is already in full-blast operation in my hometown at Cantilan Surigao del Sur,..in spite of anti-mining minded of the majority, the mining plan were push through even without the permission or proper documentation from the elected town officials. The reason is, the provincial DENR turn on the green lights in favor of the mining company....to operate.
The things is, the mining company will destroy the mountainous areas that hold and control the flows of the storm water going down the town proper and nearby areas in our place, if the mountainous areas disappears then it surely vanished our hometown and even the lives of many residents from flash flood.
I am thinking, what happen now to my home town when the tragedy like what happen to Ormoc City comes? Does this stupid provincial DENR officers who issue the permit to operates the mining in my home town shoulders the big mishap that might happen during rainy season? Since it is already there,..the provincial DENR should closely monitor the mining operation and ensured that all rules and regulation are observed by the mining company.
