Video – All that glitters

Communities across the Philippines are not being given their say over whether extraction should take place. A lack of transparency and a lack of information mean they are not told of the negative consequences of mining, nor can they easily seek compensation once mining has started.

BK-PWYP Philippines, PWYP’s affiliated coalition in the Philippines, wants to change this. They campaign for more transparency and accountability in the extractive sector so that communities can be empowered and informed.

This video offers a snapshot of their work and shows us just what’s at stake in the Philippines.

Produced by Fat Rat Films. In English and Tagalog with English subtitles.
