The island of Mindanao has long been the deadliest place in the Philippines


The island of Mindanao has long been the deadliest place in the Philippines for individuals defending their land and environment from extractives and agribusiness interests.

The threat to these defenders escalated with the imposition in 2017 of a state of martial law across Mindanao, meant to help the government root out terrorists who had seized the city of Marawi.⠀

Under the pretext of security operations, however, the military has ramped up its targeting of land and environmental defenders, according to the watchdog group Global Witness.

Global Witness named the Philippines the deadliest country in the world for environmental defenders in 2018, recording at least 30 killings that year.⠀ ⠀
