Indigenous people's day protest

A number of indigenous peoples in the Philippines hold a protest on  Friday in front of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources calling for the non-renewal of the mining concession of Australian-Canadian owned OceanaGold in Nueva Vizcaya. Indigenous peoples in Australia, El Salvador, and Canada also held simultaneous protests as they commemorated International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples.
