“SOS PHILIPPINES” – THE SONG AFTER THE STORM! BY ARMAND TJ
This song celebrates the spirit of the Filipino people rising up during this crisis, with the help of all of you around the world.
The story behind the song and video:
Our region in the Visayas was hit by the superstorm Yolanda (Haiyan). Several ”ground zeros” across the Visayas and Northern Palawan are in dire need of attention, aid, and prayers at the moment. Our people and the international community has responded to the crisis, but there’s still so much needed to do. We’re all in this together.
I wrote this song on the night of November 12, day four, after the super typhoon, while in Boracay (also hit by the storm). I immediately informed my mom that I needed to record this song in Iloilo city as soon as possible and put it out there. ”But the roads aren’t passable, it’s not safe!”, she told me. ”If buses are running, it’s passable.’, I replied, adamant that this was really important. She was right, while on the six hour bus ride from Caticlan to Iloilo, I saw the destruction caused by Yolanda (Haiyan) on Panay island, my first glimpse of the calamity outside Boracay (my island had minimal damage and no casualties).

MGA ANAK NG SABANGAN -BY BENITO MOLINO
“Ang kahilingan ng mga anak ng Sabangan ay matanggal ang natabong putik dala ng pagmimina sa kanilang dagat, sa Sitio Sabangan, Bgy. Lipay, Sta. Cruz, Zambales.
Ang mga batang kinausap na sina Jejomar at Kaye ay noon ko lang nakita at noon lang din ako nakapunta sa Sabangan, Wala akong planong kausapin sila, pero dahil andoon na ang pagkakataon para makuha ang kanilang saloobin, sila ay aking kinausap hinggil sa nangyari sa kanilang dagat na dati nilang palaruan.”
FILIPINO ACTRESS KYLIE PADILLA ON #GAZA. BY JEAN ENRIQUEZ
“Kylie saw the mobilization of women and workers at the Timog-Morato Rotonda and was so touched as a Muslim, she came down to join us. Here’s a rough translation of her speech —
“I just want to say that…I am aware of what’s been happening. You know that I’m Muslim. I suffer. Everyday, I see pictures of children whose families, mothers are being killed. I feel guilty, because I have a good life here in the Philippines — having fun. But they are dying, starving.
There are some people who are afraid to talk, because others might hate them. But I’m not afraid! Because it’s not about religion. We are all human beings, we all have hearts. What’s been happening is not right. What if it happens to us? What if we are bombed and no one helps us? How will we feel? So let us speak up! What you are doing is right. I’m supposed to go somewhere but I saw what you were doing. It is time for the people to speak. You’re so great, you’re all my idols!”

IPAKILALA SI NITOY KAY PNOY by TFDP
“Ipakilala si Nitoy kay Presidente sa pamamagitan ng pagpapakilala sa kanya sa madla.
Ang kampanyang “Ipakilala si Nitoy kay Pnoy” ay hinggil sa pag-apila sa pamahalaan, partikular kay Pangulong Noynoy Aquino na palayain si Nitoy Itaas na 25 taon nang ikinulong sa salang hindi naman niya ginawa.
Si Nitoy ay idiniin sa salang pagpatay kay Col. James Rowe nuong taong 1989. Si Rowe ay isang sundalo ng U.S. na tinambangan at napatay ng rebeldeng grupong New Peoples’ Army o NPA ayon na rin sa kanilang pag-ako.
Sa mahabang panahon, sa kabila ng ilang pagtatangka at apila sa mga nagdaang pangulo ng bansa, si Nitoy ay makailang ulit nang muntik mapalaya, subalit maagap na tinututulan ng gobyerno ng Amerika at ng pamilya ni Rowe.”
