Filipino Priest Gets Goldman Environmental Prize

For Father Edwin “Edu” Gariguez, the environment of Mindoro  is worth dying for.

Gariguez, better known as Fr. Edu, has long been recognized as the man leading a decade-long campaign, which culminated in an 11-day hunger strike in 2009 to stop a large-scale nickel mining in Mindoro.

On April 16, Gariguez was recognized as one of six recipients for this year’s Goldman Environmental Prize (an award given annually by the Golden Environmental Foundation to ”grassroots environmental heroes from each of the world’s six inhabited continental regions”) for his commitment to saving the environment of the island just off the coast of Luzon and for “leading a grassroots movement against a large-scale nickel mine to protect Mindoro Island’s biodiversity and its indigenous people,” said Goldman officials in a statement.

The five other recipients are from Argentina, China, Kenya, Russia and the US. Each received $150,000 for his/her cause.

Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
