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

ZamboSur StratCom cluster for peace officially organized

GUIPOS, Zamboanga del Sur, Oct. 16 (PIA)—The Provincial Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (PTF-ELCAC) Strategic Communication (Stratcom) cluster officially start the tough work in communicating the Executive Order Number 70 also known as Task Force End-Local Communist Armed Conflict (ELCAC) by holding a forum with the municipal information officers (MIOs) and private media practitioners at Camp David Sabido in barangay Poblacion here.

LtCol. Joar Herrera, commanding officer of 53rd Infantry (Matpat) Battalion, Philippine Army said the role of StratCom cluster, as one of the 12 clusters and lines of efforts of EO 70 of President Rodrigo Duterte is very crucial in making a difference in the government’s quest of ending local communist armed conflict.

Herrera challenged the information officers (IOs) and mainstream media to sustain the strong bond of the group by creating some products in social media, produce videos and write books in order to share the narratives that will change the mindset of the people.

Herrera said the 53rd IB have narratives that need to be shared to the people.

“The 53rd IB, Philippine Army has a lot of surrenderees. We need to share the stories of our former rebels to encourage others who are still in the mountains to come down and to go back to the mainstream society, and tell the whole world that the government is working very hard to end local communist armed conflict,” Herrera urged.

Regional Director Noemi Edaga of Philippine Information Agency (PIA) said the goal of StratCom is to dominate the information environment and address  communication gap between the government and the people in the far-flung barangays.

Edaga said the PIA as chairman of the StratCom cluster in region 9, empowers information officers and students to actively support national government advocacies.

“PIA enjoins, capacitates and empowers the youth sector to become active information multipliers of government campaigns such as ending local armed conflict, embrace Covid-19 health protocol as new normal and other advocacies that affect communities,” Edaga explained.

Edaga is optimistic that in achieving the government’s ultimate goal of having a peaceful and progressive community is possible through intensified information dissemination from the information multipliers.

Meanwhile, Jesreel Himang, chairperson of PTF-ELCAC StratCom said the ELCAC forum is a great opportunity for the IOs and mainstream media  to deliberate on their programs, activities, and plans and delineate the respective roles for the current counter-insurgency thrust of the province.

“As chairman of the Strategic Communications here in the province, with the help of our Governor, I am committed to provide the necessary assistance to our media community through the support of our provincial government in whatever activities that will help us realize our objectives as we formally launch this local communication group for ELCAC,” Himang said.

The StratCom cluster will prepare its communication plan and the output will be consolidated by PIA. (RVC/GCC/PIA Zamboanga del Sur)

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.
