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

DA-10, Phil Army one in promoting peace, agri dev’t in Tangcal town

TANGCAL, Lanao de Norte, Aug. 1 (PIA)-- Interventions to develop agriculture here have been recently extended by the Department of Agriculture (DA)-10 in partnership with the Philippine Army (PA). 

DA-RFO 10 Regional Executive Director Carlene C. Collado turned over 1 unit four-wheel drive, 95 horsepower farm tractor with implements (disc plow, trailing, harrow and trailer) amounting P2.7 million to the 2nd Mechanized Infantry Brigade, Armor Division thru Col Charlemagne F Batayola Jr MNSA PA, Deputy Brigade Commander, Philippine Army for the civil military operations of the 5th Mechanized Infantry Battalion, Armor Division, PA thru its Commanding Officer, LTC Alfonso DS Matias Jr CAV (GSC) PA.

“This activity is a big accomplishment of the Philippine Army in partnership with the DA. With their help, we are assured that all communities, especially the conflict areas will be provided with assistance, letting them know that there is a government who will help them,” Collado conveyed to the farmers in Tangcal.

Aside from the provision of tractor, DA-10 provided the 5th and 4th Mechanized Infantry Battalion, each with 50 bags inbred rice seeds at 40 kilograms per bag, 25 bags open pollinated variety (OPV) corn seeds at 20 kg per bag, 150 packets 5-in-1 vegetable seeds and 60 packs forage seeds amounting P238,000 intended for farmers in said town.

The 2nd Mechanized Infantry Brigade as convergence partner in the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC), requested said agri interventions for the implementation of agri-based livelihood projects in communities they cover as part of their efforts to reduce poverty and empower communities to end local armed communist conflicts.

Batayola said, “Natutuwa po kami na maging partner ang DA lalo na sa pagsulong ng adhikain ng gobyerno following the Whole-of-Nation Approach (EO No. 70). Hindi po namin kaya kung kami lang, kailangan namin ang lahat ng partners: stakeholders, NGOs, NGAs, private individuals, para maisulong natin ang AmBisyon Natin 2040, bawat tahanang Pilipino ay matiwasay, payapa at maalwa ang pamumuhay nila.”

(We are happy that DA will become our partner especially in pushing for the government's goal in following the Whole-of-Nation Approch (EO No. 70). We can never do this alone, we need the all the partners: stakeholders, NGOs, NGAs, private individuals, so we can pursue the AmBisyon Natin 2040, where every Filipino home is in order, peaceful and comfortable.)

Through a Memorandum of Undertaking signed between DA and 2nd Mechanized Infantry Brigade, Armor (Pambato) Division, strengthens the community-based socio-economic programs to reinforce social cohesion and preserve unity of communities.

Importantly, it addresses poverty and peace vulnerability in conflict-affected areas by providing livelihood and infrastructure projects.

Noting said efforts are in line on the operationalization of EO 70 or the Whole-of-Nation Approach signed by President Duterte that addresses the root causes of insurgencies, internal disturbances and tensions and other armed conflicts and threats by prioritizing and harmonizing the delivery of basic services and social development.

DA-RFO 10 provided farm equipment and machinery they requested as part of the DA and AFP collaborative efforts to bring government services closer to the communities.

Matias said, “Peace at development ay hindi lang nakasalalay sa military lang, kailangan ang bawat sangay ng gobyerno ay magtulong tulong para makaabot ang tulong sa mga nangangailangan. Basically, what is important ay matulungan sila at masustain ang farming with DA’s help. ”

(Peace and development should not only be relied on from the military alone, every branch of the government should help in giving assistance to those who are in need. Basically, what is important is that they are aided and farming is sustained with DA's help)

Collado also challenged the LGU to make use of said interventions to improve their lives, plant their own food, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic and to make food available in every household.

Tangcal Mayor Fatima M. Tomawis extended her appreciation, “Nagpapasalamat po kami sa DA na binigyan nga priority nila ang Tangcal para matulungan ang mga magsasaka at mapabuti ang pamumuhay nila (We are thankful to DA as they prioritized Tangcal to help the farmers and improve their means of living)."

Said town is one of the six priority Muslim municipalities in Lanao del Norte identified by DA-10 for agri development with 9,204 hectares agricultural land area and a potential area of 3,482 hectares.

At present, it has 2,632 registered farmers in the Registry System for Basic Sectors in Agriculture (RSBSA) with coconut as the major agri commodity, followed by vegetables, corn, rice and ginger. (DA10/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.
