Workers from the Philippines' largest mining firm, Philex Mining, shout slogans outside the offices of the Mines and Geosciences Bureau in Manila February 6, 2013 as pigs (not pictured) are slaughtered as part of a religious sacrifice. The workers, who are from an indigineous tribe hoped the ceremonial offering would help convince the government to reopen the Padcal gold mine of the Philex Mining Corp. The company's main mining site in the northern mountain district of Padcal suffered a spill of mine waste or 'tailings' in August 2012 after the area was hit by two powerful typhoons, suspending operations at the mine since.
