    El Salvador prohibits Metallic Mining, A Victory for the People!


    March 2017 is a historic month for El Salvador. After more than 10 years of LUCHA for the communities against mining corporations, the legislative assembly passed a law to ban metallic mining in El Salvador.

    Mining in Cagayan de Oro



    The socio-political group Bangon Kagay-an, Inc. is not against mining per se. We recognize that our lives are partly enhanced by the end-products of mining. But the dangers of unabated irresponsible mining are all too real not to mention the lost of lives and damage to property, and the displacement of thousands of farmers and fishermen who have lost their decent means of livelihood.

    We were told by the mining industry that: mining is a driver of our development and that it is an effective weapon that will address mass poverty and the gross inequalities in our society. But has it? The inconvenient truth remains, mining has been with us more than half a century and it has left no meaningful footprint. Many abandoned mining areas are not thriving communities and worst, all mining sites have degraded environments with all of us bearing the cost for their rehabilitation.

    We therefore demand for a moratorium on all mining operations in Cagayan de Oro City. We want to see Mother Nature able to breathe, to heal and preserve itself so that the future generations of Cagayanons can make use of its life-changing potentials.

    During this breathing space, we propose a thorough evaluation of the condition of our mountains, farmlands and rivers. We strongly recommend for a comprehensive rehabilitation program that will bring back life to our mountains and rivers.

    We would like the people of San Simon, Baikingon, Tuburan and all other barangays along Iponan River to form themselves into agricultural cooperatives. We will push for the restoration of agricultural activities in these areas and call on the private sector as well as our government to provide all forms of assistance to include credit facilities, an efficient network of farm to market roads, technical training and farming implements -- thereby fostering livelihood opportunities that will secure our food supply for many years to come. For when all the trees, fruits, vegetables, fishes, fowls, and all other animals are gone, we would realize that we cannot eat the gold that will be left behind.

    We understand that there can never be a total stop to mining unless an amendment is made to the Constitution. And so on the long term allow us to present our position.

    We would never agree to large scale mining in Cagayan de Oro City until we have become a politically mature people. With regards to small scale mining, we want our local government to form the City Mining Regulatory Board as mandated by RA No. 7076 and reinforced by E.O. 79.

    We would like to see that all safety measures are in place to ensure that mining operations are carefully undertaken by cooperatives consisting of Cagayanons. We would like to see government accredited gold buying stations closely supervised by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas that are transparent and fair, those that will make certain that every nugget of gold extracted in our mountains and rivers is duly levied the appropriate taxes, and that government revenues from ming are poured back to the local economy.

    This gold when responsibly managed; will make our city the next Singapore of Asia. For underneath the earth where you stand or are seated today; lies the richest deposit of the best gold in the world.

    And together with the rest of you present this afternoon, and on behalf of all the victims of that fateful Dec. 17 flood last year, we declare:

    In El Salvador ecological devastation is turning parts of the once-lush country to desert, causing severe water shortage and making respiratory disease from air pollution the most common cause of death among children.

    The country is quickly heading towards environmental collapse, with little or no environmental controls or regulations against abuses leading to large-scale deforestation, water pollution and disease.

    If during the 1980s the main problem that plagued El Salvador was the civil war that tore it apart, today one of the main features of concern is the environment.

    El Salvador ranks only behind Haiti as the western hemisphere's most deforested country.

    Much is due the population density of the small country. It is one of the most densely populated countries of the world, with about 413 people per square mile.

    But building houses is not the only reason for deforestation.

    Many of those living in the rural areas are embroiled in an eternal fight against the nature of the soil.

    They have to continue clearing the land because the soil is so poor.

    As if that were not enough, it has to contend with a number of other environmentally oriented problems like increasing levels of air pollution.

    SOUNDBITE: (Spanish)
    It's an alarming level (of pollution), above all because there are no set of rules which regulate and dictate what has to be done and what cannot be done. The necessity to develop that different sectors have, for instance the construction sector, the transport sector, the service sector, a general, over-all plan for development for the whole capital does not exist. This has allowed for a disproportionate use of the resources available, taking the maximum advantage of the resources available.
    SUPER CAPTION: Carlos Ernesto Guevara, Culture Commission of the San Salvador Municipality

    Sometimes, ecological problems get out of hand.

    In the past, when purpose-made forest fires have been started to clear forest land, the situation has gotten out of hand and the authorities have had to step in and put them out.

    But not always do the local authorities have the means to combat these problems.

    Prime examples are rubbish dumps.

    Urban centres have proved incapable of disposing of garbage in an environmentally sound way.

    The rubbish is usually piled up in huge mounds, and the poor have to fight not only each other but also the vultures over the right to scavenge goods.

    Uncollected rubbish is more often than not dumped in streams, rendering the already dirty water even more filthy.

    In other cases it is left to rot in piles, also posing a health hazard.

    Respiratory illnesses are the largest causes of death in El Salvador.

    SOUNDBITE: (Spanish)
    Respiratory illnesses today are the first cause of illness and of death in our country. This of course is a cost, it is a cost for our country. And this all due to the deterioration in the environment.
    SUPER CAPTION: Doctor Rafael Antonio Osegueda

    And for some, it is a problem they deal with from day one and that will follow them through their lives.

    SOUNDBITE: (Spanish)
    I think that very few countries in the world have the level of deterioration in the environment that we do, very few countries.
    SUPER CAPTION: Doctor Rafael Antonio Osegueda

    El Salvador does not have any hidden fuel resources.

    As fuel is either unavailable or extremely expensive, wood remains the cheapest and most available means of cooking.

    This increase deforestation, and plunges the country into a vicious circle.

    Deforestation leads to soil erosion, which in turn fills rivers with sediment, killing water life.

    El Salvador, Prizing Water Over Gold, Bans All Metal Mining




    Lawmakers in El Salvador voted overwhelmingly on Wednesday to prohibit all mining for gold and other metals, making the country the first in the world to impose a nationwide ban on metal mining, environmental activists said.

    Declaring that El Salvador’s fragile environment could not sustain metal mining operations, legislators across the political spectrum approved the ban, which had broad support, particularly from the influential Roman Catholic Church.

    Supporters said the law was needed to protect the country’s dwindling supply of clean water.

    Today in El Salvador, water won out over gold, Johnny Wright Sol, a legislator from the center-right Arena party, wrote on Twitter.

    The vote in the Legislative Assembly turned a decade-old moratorium on mining into law, halting efforts by international companies to tap the gold belt running across the northern provinces of El Salvador.

    It’s a wonderful moment for the first country to evaluate the costs and benefits of metallic mining and say no,” said Andrés McKinley, a mining and water specialist at Central American University in San Salvador.

    The law does not apply to quarrying or the mining of coal, salt and other nonmetallic substances.

    Other countries are unlikely to follow El Salvador’s national ban, mining watchdog groups say. But the law sets a powerful example to communities that oppose large mining projects and bolsters the case against mining in environmentally delicate areas.

    Globally there is a growing questioning of mining as an economic development engine, said Keith Slack, the global program director for extractive industries at Oxfam America in Washington. I think it definitely strengthens the voice of communities that are raising the questions.

    Around the world, scattered bans on the use of cyanide to extract gold from low-grade ore, commonly used in open-pit mining, are in place, including in Montana, according to Jamie Kneen, a spokesman for Mining Watch Canada. Costa Rica has a national ban on open-pit gold mining.

    Germany, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Turkey and several Argentine provinces have cyanide bans. In the Philippines, the government ordered more than half the mines to shut down or be suspended.The risks of mining in El Salvador, however, are especially acute. The tiny country is densely populated and the second-most environmentally degraded country in the Americas, after Haiti, according to the United Nations.

    Mining is an industry whose primary and first victim is water, said Mr. McKinley, who added that El Salvador faced a significant scarcity. We are talking about an issue that is a life-or-death issue for the country.

    Mr. Wright, the legislator who worked to persuade his business-friendly party to support the law, said that climate change was already having an impact on El Salvador. More than a theory or an uncertain science that it might have been 10 years ago, today for Salvadorans, it is a reality, he said.

    Unlike mining in neighboring Central American countries, mining in El Salvador has been limited to small-scale operations. The civil war of the 1980s deterred efforts to develop large-scale mines. International mining companies did not begin exploring until the 2000s.

    Opposition to one of those companies eventually grew into a social movement against mining. The company, Pac Rim Cayman, sought a license to open a mine in the impoverished northern province of Cabañas but was rejected in 2005 because it had not met all the legal requirements.

    As opposition mounted, clashes around the proposed mine led to the deaths of several anti-mining activists.

    The de facto moratorium on permits that began under a government led by the Arena Party continued under the two successive governments led by the left-wing Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front.

    Last October, El Salvador won an international dispute that had been filed by Pac Rim and continued by the Canadian-Australian company, OceanaGold, that acquired it. An international arbitration panel rejected OceanaGold’s claims for compensation.

    Protests halt gold mining in El Salvador


    Subscribe to our channel

    Canada's Pacific Rim mining company owns all the land around El Dorado in El Salvador - one of the most coveted gold mines in Central America.

    But the company has been unable to dig in because of resistance from local environmentalists who say that cyanide used in gold mining will contaminate their rivers.

    The mine is currently shut down because of protests.

    And the recent murders and death threats against activists in the region have put the spotlight on the gold mining project there.

    Outraged Salvadorans claim the number of deportees from the US this year has doubled since 1995, due to tougher immigration laws.

    The new laws, which came into effect on April 1, punish illegal immigration more severely and limit citizenship only to those Salvadorans who fled during their country's civil war.

    But for the many who have arrived in the US since, the future now looks bleak.

    For years Salvadorans sought shelter and the prospect of a new life away from the bloodshed of civil war.

    Thousands fled their stricken country but now, daily, a slow trickle of Salvadorans return, deported by US authorities in accordance with new, tighter immigration laws.

    Some arrive determined to re-enter the US as soon as possible.

    SOUNDBITE: (Spanish)
    Because I have a wife and two daughters there and, well, I am thinking about returning to the United States for my two daughters.
    SUPER CAPTION: Amilcar Rios, deported Salvadoran

    The number of deportations this year will double that of 1995, say angry Salvadorans in the US.

    SOUNDBITE: (Spanish)
    If they deport all the immigrants, all the Hispanics, who is going to work in the US? An Afro-American is not going to take a break and use it to build under the sun. An anglo-saxon is not going to work for five, six dollars cleaning toilets as we did there.
    SUPER CAPTION: Julio Rivas, deported Salvadoran

    The deportation can be sudden and dramatic.

    Many return with nothing but the clothes on their back.

    SOUNDBITE: (Spanish)
    This is a disgrace. It is not a joy, believe me. I am confused. I am happy because I can see him but I am sad because he has not brought anything. He came with only his clothes and the cheapest ones. He left everything behind.
    SUPER CAPTION: Laura Rivas, mother of Julio

    The tough new lines on immigration in the US came into effect on 1 April.

    Entry and US residential permits have become more difficult to obtain while immigrants must work ten years instead of seven, as previously set down, to be eligible for citizenship.

    Citizens in the US have been barred from sponsoring Salvadorans wanting to immigrate unless those citizens earn a salary equivalent to more than 19-thousand 500 US dollars for a family of four.

    Salvadorans have been categorised for eligibility.

    The most eligible is that of Salvadorans who fled in the eighties when civil war had brought the country to its knees.

    The US Attorney General Janet Reno has stepped in to challenge the new immigrations crackdown and help defend the right of these wartime immigrants to stay.

    SOUNDBITE: (Spanish)
    The Attorney General's initiative is only going to benefit those under the A-B-C programme, plus people unaccredited and who have committed any crimes are going to be deported under the new immigration law. There is very little we can do for them.
    SUPER CAPTION: Barbara Hines, US immigration lawyer

    The tough new laws are aimed partly to reduce the number of Salvadorans who arrive in the US and turn to state benefits for survival.

    The message is clear. Only those immigrants with wealthy relations in the U-S can live their American dream.

    kus TV crevicing and panning for gold on Mitchells Creek, Sunny Corner N.S.W, Australia - Day 1


    Welcome back to kus TV for another gold prospecting adventure.

    I went to a new spot for me called Mitchell's Creek at Sunny Corner N.S.W in the hopes to do some crevicing and panning for gold as I heard this place has great exposed bedrock. And it does.

    I spent 2 days out there looking for gold and I did find some nice colour along with some gold covered in mercury.

    I also did a good field test and review of the Hex gold pan so make sure you SUBSCRIBE to my channel so you don't miss that vid and day 2 of the gold prospecting adventure.

    El Salvador Documentary Film


    El Salvador (Spanish: República de El Salvador, literally 'Republic of The Savior') is the smallest and the most densely populated country in Central America. The country's capital city and largest city is San Salvador; Santa Ana and San Miguel are also important cultural and commercial centers in the country as well as Central America. El Salvador borders the Pacific Ocean on the west, and the countries of Guatemala to the north and Honduras to the east. Its easternmost region lies on the coast of the Gulf of Fonseca, opposite Nicaragua. As of 2009, El Salvador had a population of approximately 5,744,113 people, composed predominantly of Mestizos.

    The colón was the official currency of El Salvador from 1892 to 2001, when it adopted the U.S. Dollar.

    In 2010 El Salvador ranked in the top 10 among Latin American countries in terms of the Human Development Index and in the top 3 in Central America (behind Costa Rica and Panama), due in part to ongoing rapid industrialization. In addition, tropical forests and overall forest cover has expanded by nearly 20 percent from the year 1992 to 2010, making it one of the few countries experiencing reforestation.

    In October 1979 a coup d'état brought the Revolutionary Government Junta of El Salvador to power. It nationalized many private companies and took over much privately owned land. The purpose of this new junta was to stop the revolutionary movement already underway in response to Duarte's stolen election. Nevertheless, the oligarchy opposed agrarian reform, and a junta formed with young liberal elements from the army such as Gen. Majano and Gen. Gutierrez, as well as with progressives such as Ungo and Alvarez.

    Owing to pressure from the oligarchy, this junta was soon dissolved because of its inability to control the army in its repression of the people fighting for unionization rights, agrarian reform, better wages, accessible health care and freedom of expression. In the meantime, the guerrilla movement was spreading to all sectors of Salvadoran society. Middle and high school students were organized in MERS (Movimiento Estudiantil Revolucionario de Secundaria, Revolutionary Movement of Secondary Students); college students were involved with AGEUS (Asociacion de Estudiantes Universitarios Salvadorenos; Association of Salvadoran College Students); and workers were organized in BPR (Bloque Popular Revolucionario, Popular Revolutionary Block).

    The U.S. supported and financed the creation of a second junta to change the political environment and stop the spread of a leftist insurrection. Napoleon Duarte was recalled from his exile in Venezuela to head this new junta. However, a revolution was already underway and his new role as head of the junta was seen by the general population as opportunistic. He was unable to influence the outcome of the insurrection, and this resulted in the Salvadoran Civil War (1980--1992).

    On January 16, 1992, the government of El Salvador, represented by president Alfredo Cristiani, and the Frente Farabundo Martí para la Liberación Nacional (FMLN), represented by the commanders of the five guerrilla groups -- Shafick Handal, Joaquin Villalobos, Salvador Sánchez Ceren, Francisco Jovel and Eduardo Sancho, all signed the peace agreements brokered by the United Nations which ended the 12-year civil war. This event, held at the Chapultepec Castle in Mexico, was attended by U.N. dignitaries and other representatives of the international community. After signing the armistice, the president stood up and shook hands with all the now ex-guerrilla commanders, an action which was widely admired. The so-called Mexico Peace Agreements mandated reductions in the size of the army, and the dissolution of the National Police, the Treasury Police, the National Guard and the Civilian Defense, a paramilitary group. A new Civil Police was to be organized. Judicial immunity for crimes committed by the armed forces ended; the government agreed to submit to the recommendations of a Commission on the Truth for El Salvador (Comisión de la Verdad Para El Salvador), which would investigate serious acts of violence occurring since 1980, and the nature and effects of the violence, and...recommend methods of promoting national reconciliation.
