Indigenous peoples says Mining Act of 1995 allows DMCI to violate their collective rights; challenge presidentiables to repeal the law

KATRIBU also challenged all the presidential and national candidates to enact the People’s Mining Bill, and scrap the Philippine Mining Act of 1995 (R.A. 7942) that  legitimizes violations of IP rights by corporations like DMCI.
