Kalikasan - People's Network for the Environment
Today, after 14 years, the SC declared that the JSMU violated the Constitution for allowing wholly-owned foreign corporations to explore the country’s natural resources without observing the safeguards provided in Section 2, Article XII of the 1987 Constitution. It voted 12-2-1.
Kalikasan PNE lambasted the Marcos Jr. administration for failing even to recognize the ‘dire’ situation of environmental activists in the country. Alongside the other groups in the EDC, they called for impartial investigations into the continued attacks, including the indiscriminate military operations affecting entire communities.
