04:43
One of the cadaver teams operating in Tacloban; These volunteers came from the Holy Spirit barangay in Quezon City. We (journalist Mariana Aldano, interpreter Rowena Judavar and me) spent a few hours with them looking for bodies in the destroyed brgy behind and next to the airport of Tacloban; Their goal was the extraction of at least 10 bodies a day. We found more: kids and grow-ups. The search was three hours of vomiting, weeping, shock, nausea, courage, and trauma. Respect for these volunteers and the resilience of the survivors.

Gonzaga, ecological destruction caused by black sand mining/magnetite mining
 
00:44
Illegal mining activities in Gonzaga (Cagayan, Phillipines) by Chinese companies Lian Xing Stone Carving Corporation en Huaxia Mining and Trading Corp. These companies are destroying the beautiful beaches without any interference by local, provincial or national authorities. The local mayor and business man, Carlito Pentecostes, endorses the destruction. Despite harsh protests from the local communities. Local environmentalist Esperlita Garcia is intimidated and threatened, barangay heads were forced to endorse the mining too. Even if it means the destruction of their barangay. The ecological and economical consequences for Gonzaga will be huge. Magnetite is mined also offshore and will be mined in the mountains. Officially this is considered 'small sale mining'. In reality it is large scale theft. Gonzaga is one of the many fronts in the 'sand wars' around the South Chinese or West Phillipine Sea. Main 'war mongers' are China and Singapore, hungry for sand and other raw materials. The magnetite of Gonzaga is shipped to China in Port Irene, a port controlled by the Enrile family. This very prowerful and influential family has done nothing to prevent the destruction of their homelands.
