Below is a statement drafted by members of the Philippine Organizing Committee of the IPCM (AGHAM, Kalikasan, CEC) in support of Environment Secretary Gina Lopez in her campaign to close destructive large-scale mines in the Philippines, and urging the confirmation of her appointment as Environment Secretary.
They are asking if this statement of support:
Can be adopted by the IPCM body as a whole
Can be signed on by individual organizations as well as individuals who were part of the IPCM.
Kindly respond by 3PM Friday, March 3 (sorry for the rush – her appointment hearing is scheduled for this month).
