THE STORY:

Philippines – Kalumaran, a confederation of different indigenous tribes in Mindanao, has expressed alarm over a series of direct attacks, killings, arrests, harassments, zoning, and vilification in Lumad areas where it says there is a strong resistance against environmental plunder. The beneficiaries of the campaign are the group of Lumad (Indigenous group) and Badjao (Sea Gypsy). Lumad's were displaced from their ancestral lands when mercenaries violently attack their town, burn their schools and forcibly drove them away. These are paid mercenaries by Mining Companies. Attacks are concentrated in the provinces of Bukidnon, Davao del Norte, and Surigao del Sur, which are hosts to Lumad schools that are privately operated but are regulated by the Department of Education (DepEd). "It is a form of ethnocide but it is worse because there are specific characteristics of impunity and killings targeting the Lumad. What is alarming is that it is happening all over Mindanao," said Kalumaran secretary general Dulphing Ogan. Badjao's are sea gypsies who does not have permanent dwellings. With the help of some non-profit organizations, a dwelling was built for them. Recently, a fire broke out and displaced them.
