Anakpawis Rep. Rafael Mariano today expressed concerns that Executive Order (EO) 79 on mining signed by President Benigno Aquino III will only strengthen the domination of large-scale foreign corporations in the mining industry and will further disadvantage stakeholders including indigenous peoples, farmers and fisherfolks affected by massive land grabbing and displacement in areas with large-scale mining operations throughout the country.
