Asia 4: Philippines - Indigenous Peoples and Manila

Asia 4: Philippines - Indigenous Peoples and Manila

In this program we learn about the rights of indigenous people to protect their lives, land, and cultures from an encroaching world. The first story tells how the life and culture of the T'boli people are threatened when gold is discovered on their land. Dad Tuan, the mayor of the village of Kematu, and environmentalist Betty Tagle describe the dilemma. Constancio Paye Jr., from the regional Technical Director's office, and Noel Duhaylungsod, a soil expert from the Center of Environmental Concerns, air their concerns about the condition of the soil and the amount of mercury in the gold mining area. Next we look at a garbage dump outside Manila that illustrates the link between the environment and human rights. Smoky Mountain is inhabited by a group of very poor but industrious people who live and work in this area. They tell their stories of what it's like to live on a mountain of garbage that most call "hell." 99/12DE JSCA 30 min.
