THE UNIVERSITY has pledged a million signatures in a drive to stop mining operations and save biodiversity in Palawan.

The signatures for the anti-mining advocacy led by the “Save Palawan Movement” will be added to the 10 million already collected that will be submitted to the House of Representatives and the Senate.

In line with this, a symposium, titled “One Million Pledge to Save the Environment: No to Mining In Palawan,” was held at the Medicine Auditorium last July 8 to discuss the threats of the mining activities.

“Biodiversity [especially in Palawan] is irreplaceable; it can never be returned,” ABS-CBN Foundation General Manager Gina Lopez said before some 300 attendees.

Student Organizations Coordinating Council Secretary Rochelle Obleno said participants in the forum were each given 30 sheets of petition papers to gather signatures.

Thomasians may show their support online through the website no2mininginpalawan.com, administered by the ABS-CBN Foundation. Reden D. Madrid
