Against the Aurora Pacific Economic Zone and Free Port Development Project (Philippines)

325 received this following message from the Philippines, where struggling indigenous people, the Agta-Dumagat Tribe, and their allies are resisting a huge mega-project of capitalist development/tourism/industrialism in the Aurora region, which is being heavily ‘green-washed’ by public relations/advertising companies for the purpose of hiding the destructive nature of the plan.

NO TO DEVELOPMENTS!
NO TO ECOLOGICAL DEVASTATION!
NO TO APECO!

ECOLOGY IS LIFE.
– LIFE OF HUMANS.
– LIFE OF ANIMALS.
– LIFE OF TREES AND PLANTS.
– LIFE OF SEA, RIVERS, AND MOUNTAINS.

APECO (AURORA PACIFIC ECONOMIC ZONE AND FREE PORT)

APECO IS NOW THREATENING THE ECOLOGY AND THE LIFE OF EARTH ITSELF.
THE DEVELOPMENTS THAT THEY PROPOSED IN CASIGURAN, AURORA PROVINCE (PHILIPPINES) ARE NOW TAKING THE ADVANCEMENT OF CREATING A MISERY IN ALL LIVING ENTITIES.

THIS IS A GOVERNMENTAL PROJECT WITH THE BACKING AND INVESTMENT OF ONE FAMILY WHO ARE WELL KNOWN, THE ANGARA.

THE PROJECTS OF APECO SUCH AS HOTELS, FREE PORT, RESORT AND CALL CENTER OFFICES WILL LEAD US TO EXTINCTION, ASSIMILATION AND DESTRUCTION.

EXTINCTION: BECAUSE MANY OF LIVING SPECIES WILL BE LOST SUCH AS BIRD, FISH AND MOST OF THE ANIMALS THAT ALREADY LIVE THERE.

ASSIMILATION: INDIGENOUS TRIBE (AGTA-DUMAGAT TRIBE) WILL BE DISPLACED AND THEIR LAND, CULTURAL AND TRADITIONAL RIGHTS GRADUALLY ASSIMILATED.

DESTRUCTION: DESTRUCTION OF LIVELIHOOD OF THE COMMUNITY SUCH AS FARMERS AND FISHERMAN. AND MOST IMPORTANT ARE DRASTIC DESTRUCTION OF THE ENVIRONMENT.

ALL GREEDY DEVELOPMENTS ARE EQUAL TO DEVASTATION OF ALL.

Please contact us with any information you might have about the resistance to this project and details of any of the companies involved.
