No to Illegal Mining in Palawan, Philippines! aka Happy Anti-Valentines Day

http://www.no2mininginpalawan.com/

Hey anyone out there?  Commercialized holidays getting on your nerves? No flowers? Have no date?

Join us in signing this petition and help spread the word. According to some ridiculous law or whatever if the people want the Government to do something about  Illegal mining, whoever would need to gather ONE MILLION SIGNATURES for them to 'do' anything about ILLEGAL MINING. whhhhaaaatttttt?????

Palawan is a dear place to me. It helped me get to know myself better right when I turned into my twenties. I lived on an island there, there is a link in my links (the go on vacation here link) is across the lagoon from where we were. Palawan is an amazing place. It was so  rich and virgin somehow when I was there. Lush and just spectacular. So much diversity in species. It helped that the many heads I encountered were NGOs, marine biologists, community builders and advocates, artists and capable dreamers. All of them with excellent minds and doing something regarding the lushness of the landscape. Now when illegal mining like this threatens that very landscape that brings such an array of life together, I feel tight. Choked up. I hope you can understand that the world is losing all of its natural landscape. If all we need to do is advocate for change via communication (internet) than we are already half way to a better place. The other half comes into play when you sign something that protects the land ad advocates for a better functioning of society. So what do you say? Please find the signature campaign link on the site and submit your signature.
