Ang Pambansang Kilusan ng mga Samahang Magsasaka (PAKISAMA) ay binuhay pagkatapos ng EDSA People Power Revolution noong 1986 – 30 years na ngayon. Dinadala ng PAKISAMA ang karanasan ng mga katutubo at iba pang batayang sektor. Doon sa problema ng mamamayan sa APECO sa Casiguran, Aurora, isa ang PAKISAMA sa mga nanguna at tumulong sa kanila para mapakinggan ang kanilang hinaing. Sa APECO o Aurora Pacific Economic Zone ay marami ang mawawalan ng kabuhayan dahil apektado sila sa mga proyekto tulad ng airport at iba pa. Matagal nating linabanan yan hanggang sa naglakad ang mga katutubo magmula Casiguran hanggang Malacañang. Dito sa Ateneo ay maalab silang sinalubong. Sa kasamaang palad, luhaan silang umuwi dahil hindi sila pinakinggan ng pamahalaan.
The Local Government of Caluya, Antique states that the Semirara Mining Corporation (SMC) provides prodigious assistance to the constituents of Caluya. This is in truth, a deception. While the Barangay of Semirara where the current mine pit is located has received services and increased livelihood opportunities, this is not true of the other 17 barangays.
