In the last decade, our elected leaders from the national to the local government have been promoting mining. To date, in  Zambales alone, there are more than 30 large and small scale mining companies in commercial operation. More than half are operating in the towns of Masinloc, Candelaria and Sta. Cruz. The operations of these mining companies caused the massive destruction of the mountains, the farms. roads, rivers and the sea. It polluted the air, the water and the soil causing increased diseases among the people, made farms non-arable, death to marine lives and loss of livelihood and now massive flood. We have to stop this mining destruction now before it destroys us and annexes our towns to the West Philippine Sea. Let us all join hands in convincing all our government leaders to STOP mining in Zambales now.
