“Save Manicani Island! No to ore transport permit! No to corporate-led rehabilitation!” this is the battle cry of various Civil Society Organizations (CSO) as they executed mass actions in Quezon City, Taguig City and Tacloban City on Thursday, September 4, 2014. The action was done to oppose the release of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) authorization for Hinatuan Mining Corporation (HMC), formerly known as Nickel Asia Corporation to haul and load ore stockpiles from Manicani, Guian, Eastern Samar
