Women’s voices vs mining

OFTEN, THEY are shocked into silence. Traumatized by fear, by horror at what they have seen, by the power of those they oppose, the women lose their voice.

But only for a while. Eventually, the women recover their voices, find their courage. So when the Alyansa Tigil Mina (Alliance to Stop Mining) met with women leaders from around the country to document their life stories for the book “Stories from the Mines … of Struggle, Sisterhood and Solidarity,” they found a rich store of tales as varied as the women themselves.

“In each workshop, we would go home richer with stories from women, who in different ways have been affected by mining, but in a lot more similar ways, have been involved in actions of resistance,” writes Judy Pasimio of Lilak, which fights for Indigenous Women’s rights. “Mining companies have dug themselves deep into the homes and hearts of these women; so deep that mining, or the struggle against mining in their communities, has transformed the lives of women.”

Adds Pasimio: “As she immerses herself in the struggle against mining, she redefines motherhood, and she redefines herself…. She would be in a boat traveling in the middle of the night to join rallies in another island, she would be collecting signatures for petitions, she would be leading prayers, silently, in community chapels for the safety of her kababayan. She would be cooking for those attending the meetings. She would clean up and tend to the gardens while the others are away for rallies.

“She would bury her dead husband, while she braces herself to continue the struggle which took his life…. She is in the kitchen, she is on the street, she on the farm…. She is here, with us.”

I MET with a few of these women, some of whom have told their accounts in “Stories from the Mines,” in a brief chat after they took part in a national meeting of indigenous women.

What struck me in the brief time we exchanged information, was how personally they took the issues that journalists often consider as mere data. Journalists, after all, merely report on events and convey opinions. The women lived the stories they told. And for many, it has been a story that has dominated the greater part of their lives.
