Adam Shaw, a United Methodist mission intern, observes a June 4, 2012, rally of small-scale miners in a protest outside the Mt. Diwata offices of the Philippine Mining Development Corporation, a front company for foreign mining companies that seeks to install a large-scale open pit gold mine in the Diwalwal area on the Philippines' southern island of Mindanao. The miners were given a notice to evacuate the area by June 5 or risk being forcibly removed by the military. They have defiantly refused to leave. Shaw is assigned to INPEACE-Initiatives for Peace in Mindanao..
