Never Again! Never Forget!

Why does it matter?  Can't we move on? There is a thin line between moving forward and forgetting. The occurrence of collective amnesia did not happen only by mistake or overnight. Correctly remembering what happened during Martial Law is important, especially amidst ongoing conversations that attempt to revise history. While others have made attempts through social media platforms to cement the Martial Law's place in our cultural memory, we have a clear social responsibility to be accountable for our actions and be conscious of its impact on others and in our communities. Truths are learned to be remembered and not to be forgotten. There is nothing wrong with forgiving and moving forward, but what makes things hard to digest is when accountability is neglected. In that case, chances are, Filipinos will find it hard to value, defend, and promote our freedom. To be reminded to #NeverForget does not necessarily mean holding a grudge until our very last breath. It will

‘Big send-off’ of 4,000 LSIs in Metro Manila starts today

CALOOCAN CITY, July 4 (PIA) -- A “big send off” of 4,000 locally stranded individuals (LSIs) in Metro Manila over the weekend has been scheduled by government as part of its continuing “Hatid Tulong” initiatives, the spokesperson for the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) said Friday.

Speaking before the Laging Handa public briefing powered by the Presidential Communications, DILG Spokesperson Undersecretary Jonathan Malaya said despite the earlier travel suspension to the Visayas region per request of governors and decision of the regional Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) due to COVID-19 transmissions, the Hatid Tulong program—which intends to help LSIs, OFWs, and other affected Filipinos who wish to return to their provinces—will push through for Luzon and Mindanao starting on Saturday, July 4.

“There will be a big send-off of LSIs under the Hatid Tulong Program on July 4-5, Malaya said, with the send off event scheduled at the Rizal Park in Manila the afternoon.

“There will be 100 buses, three ships, one airplane and a train to ferry the LSIs. On July 4, the trip will be to Mindanao and on July 5, to Luzon,” he added, emphasizing its their collective goal to make the whole government more responsive to the rapidly changing concerns brought by the global health crisis.

“Yun pong sa Visayas natin ay hindi muna makauuwi dahil nga po sa naging desisyon ng regional IATF sa Eastern Visayas and ‘yung request naman ng mga gobernador sa Western Visayas,” he furthered.

Malaya, meanwhile, assured accepting local government units (LGUs) that proper health and safety protocols were in place prior to their travel to avoid the spread of COVID-19.

“All LSIs being sent home have medical clearance certificate and travel authority. Their return are [also] coordinated with respective LGUs,” he said, explaining they made sure that receiving LGUs are willing and ready to accept their constituents.

The official, however, said it is up to LGUs to impose any additional health and safety protocols, such as the conduct of additional PCR testing or putting them in quarantine facilities, when the LSIs arrive at their areas of jurisdiction.

“There is vigilance on both ends—here in Manila and the LGU destination,” he said.

Malaya said the Philippine Ports Authority and the Department of Transportation are also assisting the LSIs, especially those bound for the Visayas but are unable to leave at the moment due to restrictions. (PIA NCR)

Para sa mga Pulahan

Kung narito ka ngayon. Marahil ay isa ka sa mga napadpad o mas magandang sabihin ay isa ka sa marites na nakatambay sa page ng mga kakampinks. Kung tama ako, para sayo talaga to!  Para sa mga PULAHAN. Wala ba kayong page na nagmamahal sa inyo kaya andito kayo sa page ng mga kakampinks? :) Salamat pa rin sa pagdalaw kahit ang purpose niyo talaga ay ang ibash kami. ✌️

Bakit Uto-Uto ang mga Pulahan?

Yung tipong habang tumitingin ka sa feed mo may nakita kang nag-share ng mga conspiracy theory. Bakit ba naeenganyo sila? Paniwalang paniwala sila. Basahin ang maikling kasagutan tungkol dito. It makes them feel special and different. It gives them a feeling of being better than others, of having their eyes opened to a 'truth' that others don't see. That's why some call non-believers 'sheeple.' I think it's similar to the feeling we get whenever we learn an obscure yet interesting piece of trivia. The thought of "No one else knows it!" I also think conspiracies appeal to the way humans think, especially now. A desire to search for patterns. There has to be reason and purpose for anything. But this is not right! I still blame the lack of the fundamental research skills that needs to be taught in school. I believe you get to have a full subject on your 4th year, but investigative skills and fact checking should be honed at a young age.

'Di kami nagkamali, we already expected those things to happen... You're making fun of our opinions pero 'di niyo magets na para 'yun sa ikabubuti ng lahat. Now, why so sudden bigla kayong nagreklamo? eh diba ginusto niyo 'yan, honestly dito samin nagsasabing nagsisisi sila sa naboto nila, for me hindi na kasalanan ng mga politiko na naloko nila kayo dahil there are so many evidences na. Pero all of you still chose to be fooled and deceived by them. But it's too late na eh nakaupo na sila sa pwesto na hindi nila deserve. Pero ito na lang... Let our response be, GINUSTO NIYO 'YAN!
