Two significant videos on the Marcopper Mine Disaster

'Remembering the Marcopper Mine Disaster' (ABS-CBN) is a more recent video where victims recount their stories twenty years after the last major disaster involving the mines in Marinduque. Here, the Marinduque Council for Environmental Concerns (MACEC), also provides an accurate picture of the island-province's affected areas.

Produced by The Center for Environmental Concerns-Philippines and the Marinduque Council for Environmental Concerns (MACEC) (posted on YouTube in 2012)

Excerpts:

Narrator: (2:45) "Kasabwat din sa pandarambong ang mga pulitiko't panginoong may lupa sa mga lalawigan at rehiyon. Sa Marinduque, ang panginoong may lupa na pamilyang Reyes ay nananatiling makapangyarihan pati sa usapin ng pagpapahintulot ng pagmimina."

Rev. Fr. Allan L. Malapad:  (3:01) "Dahil sa totoo lang ay nagsasalita sila ng sabihin ay sila ay hindi papayag na magbukas ang Marcopper, ang minahan. Pero ngayon ay talagang sigurado na yung kanilang posisyon - na sila'y pabor doon sa pagbubukas ng minahan."

Narrator: Sa tulong ng mga patakaran at programa na pabor sa mga dayuhang mamumuhunan, kinuha ng Placer Dome ang napakaraming deposito ng tanso at ginto at winasak ang kalikasan sa isla ng Marinduque.

Dr. Romeo Quijano: ".... kung ano yung dinidikta ng America sa gobyerno natin ay pinapatupad kung sino man yung nasa gobyerno 'yan. Ganyan ang nangyayari sa mining."

Vinia (Resident ng Brgy, Botilao): (11:35) "Kung ako laang ang atanungin talagang matindi ang galit ko diyan. Walang puso, walang kaluluwa sariling bulsa laang ang kanilang inapuno. Alam laang nilang busugin ay ang kanilang sikmura".

Romulo Neri, NEDA Dir. Gen: (15:33)i: Itong Marcopper is a special case kasi marami pa ring copper sa Marinduque.

Gov. Carmencita Reyes: (15:40) "Marcopper had paid 7.8 billion pesos in taxes, generated 1.2 billion dollars in current exchange". 

Beth Manggol, (MACEC): 16:03 "Samantalang hanggang ngayon ay may utang pa sa real property tax sa bayan ng Sta. Cruz at sa buong Marinduque ang Marcopper-Placer Dome." (Umabot na sa higit P 1-Bilyon ang utang sa buwis ng Marcopper sa Marinduque).
