TREASURER’S TERMINAL REPORT 88

January 20 til May 15, 2012


Addendum: Atty. Braulio Yaranon’s letter to the Baguio City Council

Treasurer’s Note

Coming from the Pine Tree Festival in December 2011, it was a shock to learn of the planned tree cutting of SM City Baguio. One hundred eighty two trees were going to be cut/ earthballed to give way to a parking building. It sounded like the Joni Mitchell song, “They paved Paradise and Put Up a Parking Lot.” It sounded bad. When the January 20, 2012 rally was over with and planning was done on the 23rd, I offered to help Dr. Michael A. Bengwayan & the group the only way I can — by using my financial setups to save the trees. Financial donations started pouring in once Dr. Michael Bengwayan announced I was the Treasurer. The role kept me busy in checking where the donations were coming from (making sure we were not laundering money and that our motives were apolitical and clear) for this seems like a protracted fight. In 2010, my friends and I had stopped the sale of the Athletic Bowl with just a dinner, but this expansion project seemed gargantuan in size. Hopefully, I did as much as I could, and now could hand over the reigns to the next volunteer Treasurer. God bless us all in fighting for beings with no voices who give us life. Marie Balangue May 15, 2012

Hon. Ramon Paje Secretary, Department of Environment and Natural Resources Visayas Ave., Diliman, Quezon City The Honorable Regional Executive Director DENR, CAR Diego Silang St., Baguio City The Honorable Department Head City Building and Architecture Office (CBAO) DPS Compound, Baguio City Sirs: As a concerned private citizen and tax payer, and in support of the 15,000 signatories of the opposition filed with the Office of the President of the Philippines, opposing the removal and/or cutting of over 180 pine and alnus trees at Luneta Hill above the Victory Liner Bus Station, as well as ecavation and construction of a multi-storey parking building therein, may I respectfully bring to your attention the fact that the aforesaid area, is covered by Original Certificate of Title No. 1 issued in the name of the Insular Government, now Republic of the Philippines. The area covered by OCT No. 1 has not been disposed of to any other party to the present time. It is also a fact that SM holds a title to the same area, derived fro a Free Patent Title issued in 1963. I respectfully point out that a Free Patent Title is issued in administrative proceedings, over disposable lands of the public domain, and not over those which have become private lands by virtue of land registration proceedings. May I also respectfully point out the fact that the said area appears to be within the road right of way of Gov. Pack Road, hence may not be occupied for private purposes. I understand that a tree cutting permit may only be issed ot the registered owner of land where tree cutting or removal is to be made. Under the aforesaid circumstances, it is evident that the area is registered under two separate and different titles, in the name of two different entities, only one of whom has filed application for tree cutting and for removal, and therefore I respectfully request that all permits issued for tree cutting and/or removal, construction of a multi-storey parking building, and excavation be suspended until the lawful registered owner is determined by proper authority. Thank you for your favorable action and consideration. Respectfully yours, BRAULIO D. YARANON

Treasurer’s Notes It had been quite a challenging and interesting task to be Treasurer. Some of the donors had such touching stories, some were very direct, I believe they ought to be shared: Donor from Sydney, Australia (from Jan 24, 2012) “I cry when I find people like you and the rest who are doing the right thing. Take care and God Bless. I pray for more wisdom for all the people in the movement … Am glad there is an awakening of the indigenous nations to voice out their stand and get united. At this stage we wish and pray for more enlightened people like your group to lead our country on this area of awakening. Sad that only a few have this in their consciousness, as a big number of Pinoy are poor itching under the sun just to survive, no time to think of the finer things in life and not independent enough to state the right side. So it is incumbent among us who are in the positions in life to announce, shout to the community that this is the right thing to do. May our group of Pinoys grow in number, I pray. “ Noemi Madrid (from Jan 23, 2012) “sumagot si Dr. Bengwayan sa message ko.. mukhang di nya pwede explore yung pagtanggap ng mga monetary donations dahil nga baka iba ang dating .. pulitika talaga oo.. mas pipiliin pa nya.. na magpadala kami sa mga kamag anak namin tapos mga kamag anak na lang namin bibili ng mga pangangailangan sa organisasyon tapos idrop off sa head office nyo .”

How it Started…

STOP THE CUTTING/UPROOTING OF TREES AT SM BAGUIO

Published by Michael A. bengwayan on Jan 08, 2012

Target: Pres. Benigno Aquino 111, Sec. Nereus "Neric" Acosta, Sec. Ramon Paje Region: Philippines Web site: https://www.facebook.com/Cordillera.Ecological.Cen...

Background (Preamble):

The SM Development Corp (SMDC) is set to cut 43 fully grown Alnus japonica trees while also intending to uproot 97 growing pine trees (Pinus kesiya) and 42 saplings virtually sentencing to death a total of 182 trees within the Luneta Hill area where SMDC is found to pave way for another parking lot. This is totally unacceptable, and callously insensitive to the importance of trees to the environment and ecology. We protest vehemently this intended act.

Amor de Guzman (from Jan 24, 2012)

It appears that on Oct. 27, 2011, the Department of Environment and Natural resources (DENR granted a cutting, balling and pruning permit to SMDC upon the instruction of a clearance signed by DENR Sec. Ramon Paje on Oct., 2011.

From a doctor (from Jan 24, 2012) “Good Morning. I am for the protection of our trees. would you kindly PM me details on how to send financial assistance for our cause? thanks. this may be the only way I can help as I might not be active on the streets due to nature of my profession.”

This shows that DENR does not fully appreciate and understand the contributions of these trees which have already grown up in view of the global warming and environmental threats.

“I’d like to help any way I can … I pray that he be safe, always. Those people might have silenced our leader, temporarily BUT we are still determined to fight for those trees. I hope others who have joined our cause would feel the same. “

Rudy H. Catu (from Jan 27, 2012)

“I will be donating Php10,000 to this cause. Will send it at western union by 10am”

Bachoy Ikulos (from Jan 29, 2012) “good morning mam, may i pls ask nu cnu t mbalin pag send t basit nga donation dta group tau. anusan u t basit ngem isupay mango nga pag gatang u ti noodles, asin ken asukar dta hq:-) im one of the early members dytoy group kt subsubaybayak dytoy progress t protest/ mobilization tau. i feel somewhat helpless ta hanak maka umay nga makitulong t basit dta.” From a donor who wishes to remain Anonymous (from Jan 30, 2012)

“i need to drop off something that is between u and me only but for the cause...thanx...i shall be off to work and will open this fb account by the late evening “ Carolyn Weygan Hildegrand (from Feb 1, 2012)

“...Yes, Baguio has to eventually work together on this one and have a unified stance for the 182 trees. Take Care!” Aida Yodong (from Feb 1, 2012) “Actually, I asked Epheginia Cho if I could help share the 30,000 peso permit for use of the grandstand but never heard back from her, so I decided just to send this to help in the operational expenses for this cause..Thank you again..” Marie Tami-ing Cuyob (from Feb 3, 2012)

“Aunt Susan and I here in Belgium want to share a little bit for the project 182 and I will try to go and send it tomorrow “

By issuing a tree cutting permit, DENR allows itself to be questioned publicly of its worthiness as well as its role as defender of the environment and natural resources. By ruling in favor of tree cutting by a business entity, it is fast losing public support to an already tarnished image. DENR also shows preferential treatment for business establishments against original inhabitants, locals and residents who have long cared for the environment. Economy at the expense of the environment is greed. We finds this utterly senseless and call on the immediate stoppage for these trees from being harmed or killed. Please sign now! Let us all work to stop such stupid acts where our environment is sacrificed for financial gain by a few profiteers. Let us stop these tree cutters. Let us save what is left of our beloved Baguio. If our political leaders and agency public servants do not do what is mandated of them, let us show what a citizens' initiative can do. We can do this.

Petition:

We the undersigned call for the President of the Philippines Benigno Aquino 111 and Sec. for Environmental Protection Nereus Acosta to immediately stop the intended cutting and uprooting of the trees. We call on all concerned to : 1. BOYCOTT SM, 2. Join us in a street protest to dramatize our cause; and, 3. Occupy the intended area where the tree cutting and uprooting will be done if SM is allowed to do its dastardly act.

Normita Guidote (from Feb 3, 2012)

“i will be going to my nursing reunion in september and was thinking of selling calendars to all the nurses there for kafagwayan and a tree a day... my theme would be to have photos of the rally, as well as the before and after reforestration projects of mike... those pics will be featured in the calendar so they will understand what we are fighting for... w/ the permission of the 2 mikes, of course “ From a donor who wishes to remain Anonymous (from Feb 7, 2012)

“My family does not know I’m doing this. My husband is against this advocacy, but I believe in it because my children are suffering asthma already. My daughter even plays at being a tree fairy. We need the trees.” Ipat Luna (from April 17, 2012)

The Audit Team has reviewed Marie Balangue's Account Files and would appreciate to receive the Official Receipts from Gideon Omero & Calypso Alaia. We had found that all donations and expenses had been itemized, with receipts attached. Recommendations: 1.

Attendance and Minutes of the Meetings should be submitted with the itemized receipts of food & drinks served during the meeting.

2.

If the treasurer (Marie) is not around to pay for the items, please indicate the person doing the transaction in the receipt.

3.

For the Piso Para Sa Puno, please follow Karlo's example of counting the money in front of at least 2 witnesses, listing on paper the number of coins & bills received, before turning it over to the treasurer.

4.

We encourage volunteerism. Food and transportation expenses, as much as possible shall be shouldered by the volunteer.

5.

Baguio Environmental Summit (continued) On Land Use: 1. Ensure that the Comprehensive Land Use Plan of Baguio strikes the proper balance between economic development and environmental protection. Ensure that the remaining forest cover, watershed areas and parks of the city are protected, conserved and further developed, while regulating the need for residential, institutional and commercial zones. Conduct wider consultations with the people and communities affected in the formulation of laws, policies, projects and programs on land use. 2. Conduct a comprehensive study and enact appropriate legislation to reconcile conflicting land surveys, land use, titles, townsite sales applications and other tenurial instruments of land disposition in the city. Implement and fast-track programs to recognize indigenous peoples land rights while addressing the perennial problem of squatting through mass housing and recognition of rights of actual occupants. Initiate dialogues between the Ibaloi land claimants and settlers in ancestral lands towards resolving issues of ownership and acquisition. Declare a moratorium on demolitions 3. Investigate illegal and anomalous land transactions, land grabbing, graft and corrupt practices in the disposition of land in the city. Punish those accountable for these crimes and initiate measures of redress to correct the injustices committed against rightful landowners and occupants. Uphold the Ibaloi people’s struggle for justice over the dispossession of their ancestral lands. 4. Conduct widespread public consultations in Baguio to surface the true sentiments of the people before any further action is taken by Congress to approve the proposed Baguio City Charter. 5. Conduct geo-hazard mapping to determine dangerous land areas in Baguio as a basis for disaster risk reduction and preparedness, while ensuring that this is not mis-used to justify relocation and/or demolition of informal settlers and rightful owners. On Garbage and Waste Management: 1. Conduct a comprehensive study and hold public consultations and multisectoral dialogues towards arriving at a sustainable solution to the garbage problem of the city. Close down, clean up and rehabilitate the Irisan dumpsite to make it safe for community residents and surrounding barangays. 2. Intensify programs to reduce, reuse and recycle waste in the city. Encourage and support viable household-level and community-level initiatives, as well as indigenous and innovative practices of waste management as an integral part of the comprehensive program of waste management of the city, including the use of vermiculture, the eco-compost receptacle and residual waste terrace. 3. Promote alternative materials such as bayong, paper bags and other alternatives to plastics and Styrofoam in the city of Baguio, and assert political will for the implementation of the law on the use of plastics. 4. Hold the government accountable for the millions of pesos budget allocated for waste management and information, education campaign. Ensure multisectoral collaboration in waste management and form a working group to study the budget, where is it going to ensure that it is used for its real purpose of waste management. 5. Conduct community grassroots organizing for waste management at the source. On Management of Land, Water and Natural Resources: 1. Give recognition to the importance of trees in the development of Baguio and their indispensible role in maintaining the environment, land, air and water resources of Baguio City, as well as in mitigating carbon emissions, global warming and climate change. 2. Ensure that development plans of Baguio City promote equitable access, use, management and benefit-sharing of the city’s natural resources and address the identified priority needs of the city’s populace. Guard against attempts to monopolize resources for profit by a few private and foreign corporations and the powerful elite. Conduct a grassroots- based campaign for sustainable pro-people development by starting in our own little ways. 3. Revoke the permit given to SM Prime Holdings for its expansion project. Stop the cutting and earthballing of trees in Luneta Hill and rehabilitate the forest to return it to its original condition. Investigate the status and legality of SM Prime Holding’s land ownership over Luneta Hill and surrounding areas. Promote good governance and hold the concerned City officials, the DENR and other government officials and agencies accountable for their decisions and wrongdoings. 4. Conduct public consultations as a standard operating procedure and ensure that the free, prior and informed consent of affected communities is obtained before any development program or project is implemented in the city. Declare a moratorium on large-scale development in the city. 5. Promote clean and green development, environmental education programs in the schools and communities, indigenous knowledge and practices in natural resource management, and grassroots involvement in environmental management. Promote sustainable urban agriculture. 6. Revive and strengthen the consumerism movement in Baguio City for people to become responsible for the things they buy and use and for each of us to look into our lifestyles and responsibility in the use of our resources. 7. Ensure equitable allocation and distribution of water resources and take measures to protect the water quality in the city of Baguio. 8. Consider urban planning on a wider scale such as the Baguio-La Trinidad-Itogon-Sablan-Tuba-Tublay (BLISTT) framework for development, as a way to ease the increasing pressure on the carrying capacity of Baguio, while giving a proper place to pro-people development, environmental sustainability and indigenous heritage values of the people of Baguio and the adjacent municipalities. These recommendations come with the guidance of the words of Macliing Dulag, the Kalinga leader who was killed on April 24, 1980 for his militant opposition to the construction of the Chico Dams. He said: “What is the most precious thing to man? Life! If life is threat-

ened, what ought a man do? Fight! This he must do, otherwise he is dishonored. That will be worse than death. If we do not fight and the dams push through, we die anyway. If we fight, we die honorably. Thus I exhort you all then “KAYAW!” (Struggle!)” Done in observance of Earth Day (April 22) and Cordillera Day (April 24), on this 22nd day of April 2012 in UP Baguio, Baguio City.

Resolution:

BAGUIO DECLARATION Reclaim our Rights to Land, Resources and Ecological Sustainability “Protecting the rights of the poor should take precedence over corporate greed. Genuine development must prioritize the need to ensure ecological sustainability over market profitability. We must never sacrifice people and the environment for short-term benefit of the few.” - Fr. Edwin Gariguez, a Catholic priest who led a group of indigenous and community leaders in 2009 in an 11-day hunger strike to protest large-scale mining in Mindoro, and recipient of the 2012 Goldman Environmental Prize. These words resonate as we, participants of the Baguio Environmental Summit, unite and resolve to continue our struggle to reclaim our rights to land, resources and a sustainable environment in the City of Baguio. We are alarmed that Baguio’s environment is now in deep crisis, reaching such a state of environmental degradation, that we experience daily its stark impacts. We suffer the evidences of urban blight such as the garbage problem, the lack of water, dying rivers, the poor air quality, traffic and congestion, the increase in natural disasters, food insecurity, unemployment, homelessness, shrinking forest areas and watersheds, and biodiversity loss. These phenomena are clear signs that we may be crossing critical boundaries and approaching dangerous tipping points in the state of the city’s, if not the planet’s, environment. We are concerned that the limited land and resources of Baguio City, originally indigenous peoples ancestral territory and designed as a colonial hill station to serve a population of 25,000, are now stretched beyond its limits. The carrying capacity of the city has already been exceeded. We believe that the development of Baguio City’s land and resources should be managed and planned in a rationale, cohesive and holistic manner to take into consideration the welfare of the people, of future generations and the sustainability of the environment. We are aghast at the wanton disregard by government officials of the people’s sentiments in giving priority to profitgenerating development for a few elite corporations over the needs and welfare of the majority of the people. We hold the public authorities accountable for their failure to stop this reckless violation of the rights of the Baguio people to land, resources and a healthy environment. We condemn the manipulation of land tenurial instruments in the city to give favor to the rich and powerful over the rightful ownership claims and access rights of indigenous peoples, actual occupants, settlers and other bona fide residents of the city. In our desire for a Baguio City that is progressive, sustainable and responsive to the needs and sentiments of its people; in our deep respect for Mother Nature, its ecological balance and integrity of creation; and after thorough and allrounded discussions and deliberations while keeping the common good of the people of Baguio in mind; We now forward our recommendations, with the expectation that these serve as a guide for our policy-makers, decision -makers and urban planners, as well as our own respective organizations in defining the future development plans of Baguio City.

Dialogue with DILG Sec Robredo (transcript continued) DENR Secretary That could be the reason kasi amendment ang ginawa…meaning amendment kasi … I’m just trying to answer kasi di pa naman ako natetext ng Director but that could be the reason why because ang in-issue, hindi naman kasi full blown ECC. Moderator Ang premise mo, yung unang social acceptability [background conversation]. Whether that’s right or wrong, iyan yung premise. DENR Secretary [Background conversation not clear] Save 182 Lawyer?

Sa aming position po Mr. Secretary, aside from yung sinabi ni Atty Daytec kanina na panibagong project tapos nag-issue sa panibagong korporasyon, entity ginamit na din ng SM. Noong unang sinerve yung 72-hour TEPO, ayaw tanggapin ng SM Baguio because they claim that they are SM Prime Holdings and it should be served to SMIC. That is the reason why they did not comply with the 72 hour TEPO.

Atty. Daytec – Yangot Yun nga eh, noong 2001 let’s assume na merong social acceptability yun, sige pumayag yung taon-bayan na ganyan yung structure, noh so, yun yung social acceptability noon. Pero ngayong ganyan, ibang usapin yun so sa pagtingin natin, hindi pwede yung nangyari na i-a-amend yung ECC noong 2001 at yun nga aside from the fact that the new ECC is in the name of a different entity iba rin talagang project ito. Kami rin nama’y talagang nalulungkot na sa tingin naming kayong mga taga DENR ay hindi … you did not walk the straight path … na lumihis kayo

sa matuwid na daan. So yun sana yung hinihingi namin na doon na tayo sa matuwid at kung kailangang simulan ang proseso, simulan natin. Kung matagal, eh talagang ganyan. We cannot sacrifice the state of the people for the sake of [some lines not clear]. Ipasok na natin ang investment, bilisan na natin ang proseso. Huwag sana nating pilitin na magkaroon ng social acceptability kasi napakaimportante yun. Yung people empowerment, it’s the cornerstone of our new constitution po. DENR Secretary Actually, sa totoo ho, sabi ko nga sa inyo, balancing the environmental protection and economic development brings sustainable development [some lines not clear], for example you tell me that in the case of Mindanao now with respect to power production. Of course, mam-

adaliin kami ng industriya, kuryente. Bigyan nyo kami ng social acceptability at aabutin kami ng dalawang taon, paano kaming mga taong walang kuryente? Naniniwala ako sa ‘yo. I would always believe that we will never sacrifice environmental protection but ‘pag ikaw na ang

nakaupo dito, mararamdaman mo talaga ang sitwasyon ng bansa. Meaning, it is not only Baguio that we are handling ah, we are handling Mindanao, we are handling Visayas. So kung Mindanao ang usapan ngayon, baka nga ang hinihingi wala ng ECC eh. Kasi ang sitwasyon sa

Legal Team Meeting at Luisa’s Cafe

Dialogue with DILG Sec Robredo (transcript continued)

Date: Feb 6, 2012 Venue: Luisa’s Cafe Objective: Legal team meets with Greenpeace & other groups Attendance: 1. Atty Chris Donaal 2. Glo Abaeo 3. Representatives from Greenpeace

Moderator Let me just clarify the points that are being raised. The first one is, an issue as to whether the endorsement of the Mayor is sufficient or the endorsement of the Mayor requires a resolution from the Sanggunian and that will be resolve by way of the process of DENR. So, my question is, “Is Sanggunian resolution required?”

http://www.greenpeace.org/seasia/ph/getinvolved/Take-action-online/Save-Baguio-trees/

Mayor Domogan Thank you Sir Secretary. It is a legal issue and I think if we debate here, I think we cannot solve that. Their position is, It needs Sanggunian resolution. This is a mall development which even our Zoning Officer says it doesn’t need a Sanggunian endorsement. It would be different if it were a subdivision development like what happened in John Hay. It needs a Sanggunian resolution. Now, this is the resolution of the Barangay, that’s why I think we cannot resolve it here. It will be the court. Anyway, because this is pending issue with the court. There are confused here and I am happy because the Secretary is here and the Executive Director because I am being branded as have pressured DENR to issue the tree-cutting and balling permit. I can face anybody here. I never talked with either the Secretary or to any personnel of the DENR relative to that one. In fact, klarong klaro, No. 1, this is now a private property. We have a limit of authority and the DENR has their own separate limit of authority. As far as the city is concerned, what we have to watch is, Is it in conformity with the land use? And the zoning ordinance of the city which it appears that it had been cleared by the Zoning Officer, the Planning Officer that it doesn’t violate the land use and zoning ordinance and because it is a private property then as we said, we do not object with the development. That’s what we said to the DENR, that’s the tenor of our endorsement. Ah, but even on that way, on the issue on whether or not it requires resolution of endorsement of the city council, as I said that is a legal issue because the zoning officer said, it doesn’t need because this is just like Euro Hotel and the other hotels in the city of Baguio, it doesn’t need an endorsement of the city council. It would be different if it is a big development that it really needs the endorsement. That’s why, yung reniquire ng DENR is for SM to inform the city government and that’s ECC. Now, on the issue of the ECC as pointed out, well according to Atty. Yangot, walang ECC na na-issue to SM because what has been issued was to this name of a corporation and was amended and later on issued to this new corporation and the latest ECC now…the letter of DENR says that this is actually the expansion of an old project and there was a previous ECC that had been issued and the requirements of … the other requirements for the issuance of ECC is no longer necessary. That’s why I repeat, what is required by DENR is for SM to inform and . . . inform the city of Baguio of the said expansion. That’s what is stated in the … Moderator What is the position, DENR? DENR Secretary Ah, Mr. Secretary, the…actually I’m texting the Environmental Management Bureau Director on the basis for the decision that EMB gave for the expansion na yan. But, ah…yung issue ho kasi ng ECC, matagal na ho kasi etong issue sa amin na inaabot ng isang taon, dalawang tao. Actually DTI has been pressuring us to please tell the industry...meaning yung investment nila umaabot na raw ng three hundred billion d’yan sa [name of place mentioned not clear] nabibinbin dahil sa…ang nangyari d’yan, in a manner na makakatulong kami …for example ‘yung ganito, existing naman yung structure, andun yung SM eh, the SM Baguio is much bigger than the expansion, usually if the activity is will be much bigger than the original size, then there could be a much bigger impact to the environment…it will require a new scoping but for this particular case, the original SM is much bigger than the expansion that could be the reason why sinasabi ng EMB, we just look at the original condition of the ECC and say, uy applicable din yan dito, most probably yun yung tinitext nya sa akin because it happened several times kasi…the DTI has been complaining na hinahabol nila yung ECC ng dalawang taon and the investment naman nabibinbin. So problema rin naming yan, how to balance investment and the environment. So, the other thing na sabi nga ni [name of person mentioned not clear] yung social acceptability kasi, before I became Secretary, there is an Executive Order saying that the social acceptability isa yun sa nagpapatagal sa ECC naming so sabi naman ng EMB, sa amin technical lamang, we will tell you the environmental impact. The social acceptability is a requirement so ngayon ang sabi nila, sabi naming sa DTI, we can give you the ECC in 60 days or in 45 days but remove from us the social acceptability kasi yung hearing-hearing, naibigay ‘ata sa LGU…naibigay sa LGU yung social acceptability, meaning kapag binigyan kami ng LGU ng endorsement, nasettle na nila yung social acceptability. So, ganyan ho ang nangyari d’yan dahil sa pressured din nga kami ng investors, noh…the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, may DTI and so on that yung ECC namin tumatagal ng husto, wala pa ho d’yan yung NCIP endorsement, di ba yung mga ganun. So kami, sabi namin, kung gusto nyong madaliin kami, then leave the technical from us; remove from us the social acceptability. So what they did before I came in, the DENR issued an executive order deleting that component at ipinamigay sa iba that is the only time na nabilisan yung pag-issue ng ECC. Save 182 Lawyer? Apparently, Mr Secretary obvious naman na mukhang wala talagang social acceptability di ba dahil sa mga protests, movements na nangyayari and yung…it’s our position talaga na that requirement kahit na patatagalin ang proseso, that is a requirement that has to be complied with. Social acceptability is an important form of development. As far as yung sinasabi mo na pinasa sa LGU yung pagconduct ng survey sa social acceptability, wala kaming nakita. Wala ring ininform ang SM sa mga tao kung paano nila ginawa yun, kung paano nila ginawa yung social acceptability.

Dialogue with DILG Sec Robredo (transcript continued) DENR-CAR Regional Director? Opo, of the national government and then also yung endorsements/ clearance ng local gov’t units. Barangay resolution that was issued in their favor. And this was also followed by an endorsement from the Mayor that was addressed to the Secretary. And then also… Moderator

Ano ba yang endorsements na yan, required Barangay Resolution, Barangay consultation? Anu-anong requirements… DENR-CAR Regional Director? Barangay Resolution…the Barangay Resolution or Clearance as would have done by the local government. So the process of that is nasa Barangay po…pagdating sa amin may en banc Resolution na they went through this consultation, meeting and that there was no objection to the expansion of the project and to the cutting of trees. And then following that, so magkakaroon na po ng inventory. Moderator Inventory conducted by the local DENR? DENR-CAR Regional Director? Opo, upon the submission…yung mga plano po, yung mga blueprint ng expansion project nila, then ano yung mga trees that are to be affected, saan yan, so minapo po to, in-assess po ng mga tao namin sa Baguio. Then, submission ng inventory report, so lumabas po doon na merong planted trees, these are the alnus and yung mga Benguet pine trees na natural. So following Executive Order no. 23 na inissue po ng Pangulo, wala kaming full authority doon dahil ang nakalagay po sa Moratorium ay the cutting ay nasa owner ng trees. So eto pong report naming, inelevate namin sa central office for guidance. In-assess naman nila sa central office, so merong mga requirements, yung ECC na Environment Compliance Certificate na galing naman sa Environmental Management Bureau which was issued ng head ng central office namin and then…so, yun basically yung mga ano ko…basic requirements na nacomply and so bumalik po sa amin yung mga documents with the clearance of our Secretary to issue the earth-balling permit for the naturally growing Benguet pine trees and cutting permit for the planted alnus trees. And then with 10 conditions – may nirelease po tayo. So, correspondingly, with the clearance nag-issue po kami ng permit doon stating the same provisions na to SM. So, yun po yung in short nangyari dun sa proseso.

Atty Daytec-Yangot We’ve spoken to several councilors and with all due respect to the Mayor of the city who happens to be my relative, we feel that the city council should have been consulted. There should have been a resolution coming from the body which the Mayor may either have approved or have vetoed but this matter was never referred to the city council and in fact it was the movement – the community’s movement that referred this to the council from which they held some meetings and today there’s going to be a meeting. Another thing Sir, there’s a worry regarding the ECC because we found out that, actually SM does not have an ECC. What happened was that, the ECC issued in favor of SM Investment Corporation in 2001 covering the construction of the existing mall was amended in favor of another entity not SM IC but rather SM Prime Holdings and that apparently is the ECC that they’re showing now. So, the ECC process was not followed and in our view, this is highly irregular because there’s going to be a new structure which will cover a different area and therefore there should be a new ECC. It’s no wonder that when we went to your office to ask for a copy of the Environmental Impact Statement, we were not able to get any. There were several other documents that we were not able to obtain and then it dawned upon us when we look at the ECC that SM presented that it actually has no real ECC, and we feel Mr. Secretary that that is highly irregular. Moderator Can we just clarify that? Several questions be raised afterwards. The position that they’ve taken is that, there is a requirement for a Sangunian Resolution endorsing the request for the cutting of trees? Atty Daytec-Yangot For the expansion, the whole project. Moderator Yes, so these are the questions, the Sangunian resolution for tree-balling and tree-cutting, this is the Sangunian Resolution endorsing the project… Atty. Daytec-Yangot the expansion… Moderator

Eto na eh…

Atty. Daytec-Yangot To be fair, the Mayor did not endorse the cutting of the trees. In fact, he said there that, “You should see to … you should take care of the trees…something to that …”

Bien Mateo? Good afternoon, first the fence is a requirement for every construction, noh ah to secure the area and also to prevent dust and also the noise because the veranda tenants are mostly food tenants so we’re trying to protect them for them to feel that business as usual while doing the earth-balling of trees because there’s been a lot of heavy machineries, dust and noise, noh. Ah, doing the balling of trees at night is really a requirement of the DENR and not SM. It’s easier to work at daytime but we are required to really do it at night when the sun is down. So, when the moisture is much much higher. It is a requirement by the DENR. Atty Daytec – Yangot So, why the need for a wall then if you’re just going to protect the stores from dust. There’s no dust at night. There are no stores open at night? Bien Mateo? Yah, but of course, in the morning we also do the preparatory works, noh and that’s where the excavation are on-going noh because those walls are provided not only for the tree-balling but throughout the construction of the building and ah…the construction of the building will be done in the morning also. Moderator Let me just organize this; let’s just have a framework as to how we resolve this. For the point of view of the environment groups, exactly, how do you see this? What is it that you would like to happen noh so that you know at the end of the meeting, is it that we agree? Is it that we disagree? At least there is a direction that we are pursuing. So from your, let’s say for instance ha, at this point in time, let’s make the cut off as today. Let’s forget about what happened yesterday, two days ago. Let’s start looking at it from today. Exactly, what is your suggestion? Can you ask them, “will this be workable”? If it’s not, what is there suggestion? And if you say it’s not workable, at least we try resolving in a manner wherein the requirements of both sides are heard.

Atty. Daytec Mr. Secretary, before we articulate what we feel should be done from hereon, we have to state that this is not just an environmental issue for us. This is also an issue of good governance. So, uhm our concern is not only those trees being cut but also about those trees being cut ahh with all these governmental practices as having been uhm, you know, uhm not followed. So from hereon, what we want is those trees will be safe. SM cannot stand but please save the trees and please comply with government rules and regulations and we are not directing this to SM only we ask it to government as well. We ask the DENR and other government agencies. Please follow the law. Moderator Okay, so can we ask the … to explain to everyone exactly what is the process and if the processes were complied with. They are nothing [some line not clear] Exactly, given the situation, what is the process? Can we do it step by step? DENR Secretary? Actually, Secretary, I brought with me the Regional Executive Director of the CAR who will explain to us the actual situation [some lines not clear] Moderator: Can we begin from the very beginning? DENR-CAR Regional Director?

Salamat ho. Magandang hapon po sa lahat. So, if we start from the beginning, well of course, SM came about with this expansion project

and because of their planned expansion project, there were trees that were going to be affected by this project. So necessarily, they had to apply…. So… for which they did and in the course of their application, there are requirements. They had to go to through and submit to us. And among the requirements po are: ownership of the land…, Moderator Complied? Not complied? Ano yan? Title, etc.? DENR-CAR Regional Director? Well, wala pong title na….

Dialogue with DILG Sec Robredo (transcript) Hans Sy Even then in just doing the retaining wall, the 182 trees would have been affected. It was then we felt since we have to do a retaining wall, we might as well do something good for the city and let the people to appreciate us, hence the parking structure came about. It was never about the parking structure first. It was an option of a problem. Just like what we have done in other parts of the city and other parts in the country. Like a bus station in SM City North EDSA’s property, the bus station in SM Mega Mall’s property. Both we believe that since, eased a lot of traffic in EDSA. The more than 6M liters of rainwater collection tank in SM City must be enough which works very well helping the flood control in the area. The storm ??? (early just slides) in Iloilo, Novaliches, Gen San and others – which helped in the flood control. On the environment issue, we had installed STP, sewage treatment plant, in our malls, big or small, all coupled with tertiary treatment plants to recycle and reduce all the water for our cooling power and watering our landscape…. We recently introduced our sky garden on SM City North EDSA, which is really a sustainable earth garden as it collects excess rainwater that we don’t have to water our plants the next 4 days every time it rains for about 15 minutes. We really want to do something good for the city of Baguio – a much needed parking structure, a sky garden, a rainwater collection tank, and replanting of trees for every tree moved. Our objective is to make our effort as benchmark or requirements to all future developments in Baguio City which I believe will contribute to the good of the city. I firmly wish and hope for understanding and trust to see how responsible developer SM can give back. Thank you. … so I really just wanted to explain, it was really from a problem na we encountered and we wanted to really do something that would be good for the city but instead, we’ve been cursed, we’ve been ano…that’s why I felt na it’s a bit unfair. Sana naman, we have track records to show you what are the bad things we really have done but throughout…at least I can say that for the last 10 years, SM has been doing a lot of efforts in helping the environment improvement. Although something we are just a bit weak of is how to advertise also. We don’t really advertise what we are doing but recycling of all water is not a requirement but we are doing all that even if we know that it’s a bit expensive because we really do want to contribute something back to the environment. So, that’s all I’m asking na sana understanding and appreciation – give us this chance to be able to prove to everyone that we can do something. In fact, using us as a benchmark for all future development. Hindi yung kasi SM malaki, SM ganito. You know, in terms of employment, sana nabigyan n’yo ng pansin, how can it can be because of progress, if it’s ano ... tapos nakasulat “progress is greed”. Sabi ko, “Eh, sana you stop the population growth and then blame it to progress? How can people be able to find job if you don’t create job for them. So, those are the intentions of SM. The tax issue as I’ve explained earlier is something for the government to settle because we are just following what we were told. If we pay it everything to Baguio [some lines not clear] Sana naman, I really wish that look at the good side of what SM has been doing for the whole country and look forward in what we can really do for Baguio City. Moderator Okay, Attorney? Atty. Daytec-Yangot So, it’s very clear that what SM did is a retaining wall in order to prevent the mall from further sinking. So, apparently it’s enough that you just put up a retaining wall, that’s what is really clear because if you put up that mall you have to sacrifice all those trees there and in fact, that area is very special to the city of Baguio. The city of Baguio started there… Hans Sy That was what I’ve explained; even with the retaining wall alone will affect those trees. Moderator [Some lines not clear] Atty. Daytec- Yangot If you put up a retaining mall there and I’m sorry for using that word but I think that’s the appropriate one. There will really be a lot of environmental damage as compared to a retaining wall which is precisely what you need. And what really has angered the community is the fact that you went ahead despite the public announcement by your lawyer Sigfrid Fortun that those trees will not be touched while the case is pending. Your company went ahead on cutting trees and made us appear like we are all liars when you said that you earth-ball trees. I was personally there. I was mauled by your guards and we know that those trees were cut despite the existence of Temporary Environmental Protection Order and of course, very suspicious of you that to put up that all those hideous walls, fences that definitely obstruct human view of what’s happening on the ground. We could not see what is happening. If we are inside the mall, we could not see because in the veranda, there are several fences that obstruct human view. At the same time, just above the road you also put up fences so, what is SM trying to hide. How can you ask us now to trust you and believe, even at face value, what you just said when you’ve had not given us the chance to believe that you are trustworthy. Why do you have to do all these?

Time Spent: (4 til 7pm) approximately 3 hours Donations: Majority of participants brought their own candles and covers (but asked for more). Karlo Altomonte designed the flyers. An Anonymous Donor printed the flyers. Robin A. Dizon counted the participants with the borrowed counter (c/o Gideon Omero).

Luneta Hill was where the famous Pines Hotel once stood. Luneta Hill is oneo f the very few remaining forested areas in Baguio’s Central Business Disctict, and is home to mature pine trees, which Baguio is famous for, and other tree species that continue to provide breathable air in the otherwise already heavily-polluted CBD. It also helps in containing water preventing the flooding of lower lying areas in the vicinity. Luneta Hill is where a mall, SM City Baguio was built which opened in 2003. SM has ben enjoying a very huge market share, displacing a lot of smaller businesses in the city. Despite this advantage, SM City Baguio wants to expand, which would affect 182 mature trees in the area. While they claim they will not cut any of the trees and will instead “earthball’ them to be transferred somewhere else, and what they’re building is a “green building”, the environmental impact of their expansion plan will greatly affect the community and the well-being of the people.

On January 20, 2012, thousands of people marched down Session Road to protest the impending harming of trees up on Luneta Hill. Then on February 5, 2012, led by Dr. Mike Bengwayan, hundred of volunteers planted more than 182 pine trees at Pine Trees of the World in protest of SM City Baguio’s expansion. This was followed by a 12-hour concert of local musicians and guest artists to show their support for the cause. We are here to protect Baguio’s remaining forests that give us air to breathe, water to nurture life, and protection from natural calamities. We are here because this is what Baguio is all about—a community of caring people and a healthful, nurturing natural environment. SAVE BAGUIO FROM CORPORATE GREED! SAVE BAGUIO’S NATURAL ENVIRONMENT!

Luneta Hill is one of the very few remaining forested areas in Baguio, and is home to mature pine trees and other tree species that continue to provide breathable air in the otherwise already heavily-polluted Central Business District.

Photo by Gladys Alumit

In urban areas with 100% tree cover (i.e. contiguous forest stands), short-term improvements in air quality (one hour) from pollution removal by trees were as high as 15% for ozone, 14% for sulfur dioxide, 13% for particulate matter, 5% for nitrogen dioxide, and 0.05% for carbon monoxide — USDA Forest Service (David Novak)

Luneta Hill also helps in containing water that prevents flooding in lowerlying areas in the vicinity. Mature evergreen trees (evergreens, such as magnolias or pines, retain their leaves all year round) can intercept more than 4,000 gallons per year. — University of Florida, 2005

Luneta Hill is where a mall, SM City Baguio, stands and wants to expand, which would affect 182 mature trees in the area. The environmental impact of their expansion plan will greatly affect the community and the well-being of the people.

Petition Signing during Session in Bloom—Report Financial report By Cristel/Calypso Alaia March 18, 2012 On the first day of the Session in Bloom (February 26, 2012) we did not have any collection, we did not set up any Piso Para sa Puno fund, the food was donated by Gregory Rugay including the C2 water. The next day (February 27, 2012), some musicians came to help during the campaign, they told me they are bound for Manila but they do not have any money for the fare, they were asking me to lend them money but I cannot give them any. One of them suggested (Delfin, percussionist) that he will play together with the others – Yangs (percussionists) as well in order to gain attention for the Project 182 petition. They will help us get the attention and support but asked that we also help them in exchange. We put up one box in front of them and Delfin did a fire dancing show for 5 hours straight. Because of him and his friends, we got a lot of donations for Piso Para sa Puno. I was too busy inspecting everything from the drums, the scotch tape, the people signing, the ballpens, etc. During that time there were only 7 of us in the table working with the signature campaign, we are not able to get away from the table. Too many people are signing up and we cannot possibly check everything that is going on. When Delfin told me that they will already go home at around 11:30pm and asked for the money I just said yes and he got some. I failed to ask him to list down how much he took; I did not have the time so to speak.

Piso Para sa Puno Date: March 27, 2012 Venue: Complex Objective: To have stickers for the collections bottles for Piso Para sa Puno Attendance: 1. Myke Sotero 3. Marie Balangue 2. Sonn Fernandez 4. Guia Limpin (received the stickers on March 30, 2012) Cost to Project Save 182: PhP600.00 Qty 10

All of us 7 in there were not even able to eat starting from 12:30pm until 11pm in the evening. During this time the CGN’s Atty. Donaal and Sir Gideon texted me that they will bring us some food after the signature campaign. Earlier Ellen Lao was kind enough to give us water as well. During that time we are so tired already, we went home at around 2am. We did not even have the time to count the money anymore, there were too many coins, if I counted them it would have taken me another 2 to 3 hours and my body was just too tired to be able to do that. The next day (February 28, 2012) what I did was just bring the coins and add them to the additional coins collected. Again, there were no stationary individuals to guard the signatures, it was pure volunteerism. If someone chanced upon to walk by our area, they stopped for several minutes to help us out. There was no way I would be able to recall everyone who was on the table, a lot of people volunteered. The only ones that I am acquainted with are Myke Abaya Sotero, Andrea Leigh Cosalan, Gregory Rugay, Richard Basa, Mac Reyes, Junie Torre, and Guia Limpin. The rest are new faces to me.

Time spent: approximately 2 hours Donations: Myke Sotero designed the stickers.

We are not able to set up any log books – I found it impossible to be able to handle everything, Sometimes, Richard and I would be photocopying the papers for the signature campaign, we had to print it over and over again because the papers were not enough, we volunteered our own money. I cannot exactly compute how much we spent for the photocopying, as some just used their money and did not ask for a refund. I was in charge of setting up the drums, getting the tables, photocopying the signatures even charging the megaphones and I hope that you understand that there was no time for me to still think about how I am going to list everything else. The same thing happened when we were given money to purchase snacks by Ellen Lao (P500. The receipt, I was not able to find. We bought 25 hotdogs, juice and 2 Gardenia bread from 7/11 -- all of which I failed to keep the receipts. That day, we were provided water once again. And we finish ed around 12. Manong Gideon Omero told me to use the money we have collected to feed the volunteers, because no one was going to donate this time. I forgot the exact date where Andrea provided 500 pesos for the food, but there was this one day that she gave money so that we can eat, I think that was on the third day, I am still looking for the receipt, the other receipts from Good Taste. For the remaining days of signature campaign a lot of people volunteered and most of us did not eat for the entire day. A lot of UP students came to volunteer until midnight and all were famished. Every day we had to feed 15 to 20 people who have volunteered together with some musicians and students. This bonding time was very important because we needed to know who each other was, in fact because of this bonding sessions we have been able to create a team that is working with us right now, if it were not for this eating sessions I don’t know if some of the people that are with us today would even be here like Mac Reyes, Brian Amaro, Positive Khayst, Jarlow Virgino, Indobitable Rako, Marti Cabangon, Wyler Addamag and the rest of the team. It was an absolute must for people to eat after the intense work. I hope that other people will understand that we have bonded and created our support group from this sessions and I hope they will not question why we needed to feed people who volunteered in the petition signing, the bonding over food was very instrumental to reaching the support group that we have now. The only money that needs to be refunded is the 500 pesos for Andrea Cosalan, I cannot find the receipt as of this moment but I will testify that she has given money for the food, I hope this is enough. The money we have used to feed all of those who helped us. I submitted some money to Marie Balangue with the Audit Team as witnesses. Some of the money, we used to buy some props for the March 10 rally (the zombie concept). Some of the materials that we have used are still kept at the house of Richard Dean Basa so that we can use it again for future rallies. We used the money for purchasing pens, scotch tape, water, cups and I am sorry for not being able to collect all of the receipts, I hope you understand that 5,000 to 10,000 people signing up for the trees is not exactly an easy thing to manage especially when we never really planned this activity. Some of this pens were given at HQ2 but I cannot tell into details how many as I have no way of remembering due to the fact that everything happened simultaneously, even the putting up of the tarpaulins were assigned to me that day. I was not able to create a team, because most of them are volunteers, people I did not even know the names of. Please remember that it was just me who was able to stay there for 5 straight days and to any person trying to work out everything this is not an easy task. Many of the members who joined were sometimes there for several hours and would go home afterwards. Only several people like Myke Sotero was there but he constantly needed to go around the area to promote the cause, the same thing with the others. We also had to photocopy the signs that we used and placed on the t-shirts of the volunteers. The signature campaign was a huge success, with 30,000 signatures and counting and it was made possible due to community effort, trust and the spirit of volunteerism. We already know what to expect and what to do the next time. We will set up a log book, a secretary, and someone who will really check on the funds.

PAANO MO GUSTONG GUNITAIN ANG BAGUIO?

Ang 182 puno ay kayang mag-impok ng libo-libong litro ng tubig. Kapag natuloy ang plano ng SM City Baguio na tanggalin o putulin ang mga puno sa Luneta Hill, saan pa ba aagos ang tubig ulan kundi sa mga mas mabababang lugar tulad ng Session Road, Gov. Pack Road at Harrison Road na maaaring maging sanhi ng pagbaha dito?

At kung walang mga punong maglilikom ng tubig ulan, maaring lumambot ng labis ang lupa at magdulot ng mga nakamamatay at nakapipinsalang landslides.

Nililinis din ng mga puno ang hangin sa pamamagitan ng paglilikom ng mga nakapipinsalang Carbon sa himpapawid. Sa mga puno rin nanggagaling ang oxygen na ating hinihinga.

Kapag hinayaan natin ang SM City Baguio na ipagpatuloy ang kanilang maitim na balak upang itaguyod ang kanilang kasakiman sa pera, paano pa natin mapipigilan ang iba pang nagbabalak ding gahasain ang ating kalikasan? Hahayaan nga ba nating tuluyang mabura ang imahe at alala ng Baguio bilang “City of Pines?”

ILAN LAMANG ITO SA MGA DAHILAN KUNG BAKIT

KAILANGAN NATING MAGKAISA LABAN SM CITY BAGUIO

<< HUWAG PUTULIN ANG MGA PUNO SA LUNETA HILL! >>
