ANG CHED MEMORANDUM BLG. 20 BILANG AKTO NG PAGTATAKSIL SA BANSA AT HAKBANG NG PAGPATAY SA KALULUWA NG MGA MAMAMAYANG PILIPINO. BY JOSE MARIO DE VEGA
Ang munti kong sanaysay na ito ay hinggil sa ulat ng ANC na may titulong, “Is Filipino being kicked out of college?”, na may petsang Hunyo a-disisiete ukol sa impertinente, estupido at sa aking pananaw ay pinakagago at pinakatarantadong memo na inilabas ng nasabing “komisyon”.
FIVE REASONS WHY MARCOS SHOULD NOT BE BURIED AT THE LIBINGAN NG MGA BAYANI BY DARWIN MENDIOLA
The commemoration of the 42nd anniversary of the Martial Law Declaration has once again revived the debate over whether former president Ferdinand Marcos should be buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani (Heroes’ Cemetery).
KUNG BAKIT SALBAHE ANG SALITANG “SALVAGE” NI GREGORIO V. BITUIN JR.
Wikang Ingles ang salitang “salvage” na ang ibig sabihin ay “save” o isalba, sagipin, iligtas. Ginagamit ito lalo na sa pagsagip ng isang barko. Ngunit sa wikang Filipino, hindi pagsagip, pagligtas at pagsalba ang ibig sabihin ng salitang “salvage” kundi ang kabaligtaran nito – pagpatay, pagpaslang, pagsalbahe sa katauhan at katawan ng isang tao. Sa kahulugang ligal, ang “salvage” ay “summary execution” o “extrajudicial killing”. Sa ating bansa lamang masasabi na ang salitang “salvage” ay nangangahulugang pagpaslang.
BROWN WATER, BLACK SAND: MACARTHUR, LEYTE’S STRUGGLE AGAINST MINING, YOLANDA, AND CLIMATE CHANGE. BY DENISE M. FONTANILLA
I recently spent eight days in eastern Visayas, the region where typhoon Yolanda first passed through on November 8, 2013, almost ten months ago. Alyansa Tigil Mina (ATM, or Alliance Against Mining) invited the civil society network I work for to their general assembly last August 18-21 at the Visayas State University, in Baybay City, Leyte Province, and I was happy to represent them and join the representatives of mining-affected communities and other civil society groups from across the country.
PAGPUPUGAY AT PASASALAMAT SA MGA BAYANI AT MARTIR NG BATAS MILITAR: A REVIEW BY DARWIN MENDIOLA
Heroes are made not born.
They are those who let no obstacle prevent them from pursuing the values they have chosen. Some simply happened to find themselves at a crossroads, confronted with the turbulent events of their time but chose to take a path less traveled and even offering their own lives.
THE MEMORIAL BY JOY ANNE ICAYAN
They are writing the names down, the martyred fallen
even those that shot themselves, trigger to the mouth.
Because it had become too dark. And there was a gun.
We’ve been lucky we’re not down in the list.
We can go on now, bear our children, write our books.
They will give us a place to stay, perhaps some money
out of the old dictator’s chest. We just have to speak out,
about how dirty we were, the mud up to our neck,
IN DEFENSE OF DISSENT BY JOSE MARIO DE VEGA
I refer to the news report, “Palace to hackers: No illegal acts needed to show discontent”, Sun Star, November 4th.
According to the so-called Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. “there is no need to resort to illegal acts to express discontent in the way government handles current issues…”
“PROF” LOLONG AS THE LAPDOG OF STUPID CHED: THE BETRAYAL OF A SOULLESS CREATURE AND A USELESSNESS OF A GOOD FOR NOTHING GOVERNMENT AGENCY. BY JOSE MARIO DOLOR DE VEGA
I refer to Dr. Lisandro “Leloy” Claudio’s “CHED is not targeting Filipino language instruction”, Rappler, June 19th with regard to the raging controversy spawned by CHED’s Memorandum 20 series of 2013.
KARTILYA NG MABUTING LOOB. NI GREGORIO V. BITUIN JR
pawang kasapi sila ng bunying Katipunan
na gabay ang Kartilya, mabuting kalooban
buhay na di ginugol sa banal na dahilan
kahoy na walang lilim, buhay na sayang lamang.
kung pawang pansarili yaong nasasaloob
di pakikipagkapwa sa puso’y nakalukob
paano na ang iba kung ang nakakubakob
sariling ginhawa lang ang sa kanya’y marubdob.
BRUNEI’S SHARIA LAW: BARBARIC LAWS OF THE STONE AGE. BY JOSE MARIO DE VEGA
I refer to Maureen Callahan’s “The sex-obsessed world of Brunei”, The New York Post, May 10th with regard to the so-called sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiah’s sudden, out of nowhere, truly out of this world and undeniably ridiculous decision of implementing sharia law to his nation.
