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

DOLE vows to bring home OFW remains 

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, July 8 (PIA)--Due to limited capacity of the airline providing service to bring home the remains of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) will facilitate the transfer of 44 remains today.

"Maiuuwi na natin pero 44 po lamang kasi 'yun lang ang kaya ng eroplano ng PAL. We will be bringing in 44 out of which 14 are COVID-related deaths. Makakarating po sila pero the following Sunday, another batch of 44 will be brought home hanggang maiuwi natin lahat sila,"  DOLE Sec. Silvestre Bello III said during the daily Network Briefing with Communications Sec. Martin Andanar, July 8.

(We can send home (the remains) but we can only send 44 of them because that is the only capacity of PAL's plane. We will be bringing in 44 of which 14 are COVID-related deaths. They will be sent here and on the following Sunday, another batch of 44 will be brought home until we can send them all home.)

In Region 10, Eugene Mesias of Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) said since February 1 to July 7, they have already brought home four remains of OFWs of which one is COVID-19 related death.

"Nakauli na ni sila ug nadawat na sa mga pamilya (They are already sent home and their families have received them)," Mesias said.

As for the OFW assistance, Bello said they have a P1.9 billion budget to provide immediate relief to those who have lost their jobs due to COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, about P500 million is left from such a budget.

Bello said they already requested an additional budget of about P2.5 billion from the national government since 100,000 OFWs are still to be accommodated.  

Based on Department Order No. 212, DOLE shall provide displaced OFWs on account of COVID-19 with one-time financial assistance of P10,000. (RTP/PIA10)

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.

Ginusto Niyo 'Yan!

'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!
