The New Filipino Youth Movement: Shirts for Change By Arizza Nocum

What do Ateneo De Manila University’s student council President, an international karate medallist from the De La Salle University, a musician from the University of the Philippines, a UAAP basketball bet from the Universidad de Santo Tomas, and a radio DJ from San Beda College have in common? Right now, they are all wearing the same thing—for a good cause.

This year, the University of the Philippines Industrial Engineering Club (UP IE Club), the Ateneo De Manila University’s Environmental Science Society (Ateneo ESS), the University of Asia & the Pacific’s ER+GO, and the Universidad de Santo Tomas’ Junior Pharmacists’ Association – Gamma Chapter (JPAGC) joined forces to produce “Good Karma Shirts”: a youth movement anchored on four shirts of different colors.

“Batid natin ang pangangailangan ng mga guro na laging maging kaaya-aya at maayos lalo na sa paningin ng mga mag-aaral, kaya naman napakahalaga sa amin ang maayos na pananamit.” Pahayag ni Policarpio. Ayon pa sa kanya, “Bagamat maliit ang dagdag na ito, ipinagpapasalamat pa rin namang sapagkat nauunawaan ng ating kagawaran ang aming pangangailangan. Sapagkat lalo lamang kaming mahihirapan kung sa aming napakaliit na sahod pa kukunin ang pambili ng aming uniporme at iba pang kasuotan.”

PH now in IMF creditor list – ‘sounds good, smells fishy!’ -FDC

Ricardo Reyes, FDC president, said that while such move “seems to suggest that the Philippines has gotten out of its debt problem, which of course is not true,” considering the outstanding national government debt of P4.93 trillion at present, the catch lies in the next part of the BSP announcement, which he said “smells fishy.”

According to the announcement, the country’s “continued participation in the FTP will pave the way for the BSP’s admission in the New Arrangement to Borrow (NAB) facility of the IMF.”

“BSP lends a part of our dollar reserves to IMF’s FTP so the Philippines can borrow again and borrow more from the IMF!” Reyes stressed.

Gender identity is a human right – STRAP

As the day of hearts fast approaches, we, the members of the Society of Transsexual Women of the Philippines (STRAP)*, are heartbroken that members of Congress (REPRESENTATIVES GUNIGUNDO, ROMUALDO, MIRAFLORES, ALVAREZ (M.), ESPINA, ARNAIZ, RODRIGUEZ (R.), RODRIGUEZ (M.), TUPAS, CASIÑO AND RELAMPAGOS) and the Senate (SENATORS TRILLANES AND ESCUDERO) are seeking to amend Republic Act (RA) 9048 or the Clerical Error Law of 2001 that would effectively illegalize the lives and identities of transgender/transsexual Filipinos including those who are intersex.
