‘Kaliwa Dam is not right’

In celebration of the World's Indigenous Peoples Day, the Dumagats of Quezon and Rizal, together with the Stop Kaliwa Dam Network, hold a protest on Friday, urging the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) not to issue an environmental compliance certificate for the dam project. The group called on the DENR to stand true to its mandate of protecting the environment and the rights of indigenous peoples, considered nature's first defenders.
