The SALAKYAG PARA SA SANGNILIKHA 2018 national caravan will happen this May

Salakyag 2018 national caravan

The SALAKYAG PARA SA SANGNILIKHA 2018 national caravan will happen starting on May 28, 2018 until June 5, 2018. The event was launched as a national caravan whose primary objective is to raise awareness at the national level on the negative impacts of mining.

Some of the adverse effects of mining include the increased vulnerabilities to climate change on communities with mining operations, human rights violations committed in mining communities, and exact accountability from mining corporations. The initiative also seeks to push for relevant policy reforms in the mining industry and will also launch Philippine Misereor Partnership Inc. (PMPI) network’s campaign on Rights of Nature, and position environmental protection and affected communities in the charter change discourse.  

More or less 3,000 participants will join the SALAKYAG national caravan which will commence in Mindanao, move to the Visayas, then to the Bicol area towards Quezon City, and Manila in time for the global celebration of the World Environment Day.

The SALAKYAG PARA SA SANGNILIKHA 2018 is organized by the following organizations:
  • National Secretariat for Social Action (NASSA)/Caritas Philippines is the humanitarian, development, and advocacy arm of the Catholic Church in the Philippines. It was organized by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) in 1966 and was mandated to accompany the poor and marginalized in the just and legitimate struggle for social justice and transformation.
  • Philippine Misereor Partnership, Inc. (PMPI) – a network of people’s organizations (POs), non-governmental organizations (NGOs), church and faith-based groups, and Misereor in Germany.

Philippine Misereor Partnership Inc. (PMPI) Co-Convener and Executive Secretary of NASSA/Caritas Philippines, Fr. Edu Gariguez invites you to join the Salakyag para sa Sangnilikha 2018.
