Dear sir Marcus,
Greetings to you from the tribes in Philippines, thank you so much for the kind words, yes
the deadline is March 31,2021.
This was agreed last December 1,2020 with the tribal owners of the 100 hectares.
There are lots of private persons, investors and real estate companies, business tourism
want to buy the land from the tribal dealers.
I can't name them, because every day different new faces come and go. They want to buy
all the land for self interest.
By the way, there is an update of the fundraising campaign made by Madam Thomas, and it is
very helpful to convince the donors.
I have partially talked to the clan owners and asked not to sell the land after the
deadline. I told them that If we can put a partial money of 30kusd then, they will not
sell the land.
I told them, that we can continue to fundraise money to buy all their lands sacred forest
in order not to sell it to the capitalists for mining and logging.
The 2 land owners agreed that 30k usd is the partial payment for 100 hectares. They said
it is very ok. I told them also to sign the deed of sale, they said they are OK for
For this we need to put a partial amount to the sacred forest.
Please let me me what things to do, my point is to save the last home of the tribes.
Love and respect
