Duterte would rather lose the P70 billion from mining than give up Gina Lopez as Secretary for Department of Natural Resources.
Im fucking shocked na P70 billion LANG. Ang liit, what a small, small amount for HUGE, IRREVOCABLE damage.
Sino ang yumayaman? Mining companies.
Alam nyo magkano ang possible income ng pagbebenta ng coconut water ng Pilipinas? If we just hit our target, we can earn for our farmers P22 billion pesos, 1/3 of mining profits, for selling coconut water. 1/3 of mining revenues. Siguro naman puwede nating pag igihan ang ibang bagay para mabawi natin ito (for the first time pala, mag eexport na ang Pilipinas ng corn.)
At sobrang lugi tayo sa current rules and regulations sa mining! The PH holds the world’s second biggest reserve of gold in the world.
The mining industry in the Philippines in 2012 was worth $1.5 trillion! US DOLLARS! And yet ang nabibigay sa atin only makes up 0.7 percent, not even 1 percent of our economy (2012 statistics.)
Ang mga mining companies na nasa Pilipinas ay galing China, Australia, UK, among others.
I AM SO SO SO SO SO PROUD TO BE A DUTERTE SUPPORTER.
