Cyclists, Artists, and Volunteers Gather for Bayanihan Republic — A Fundraising Festival for Yolanda Survivors

On November 30, Filipinos will come together as one as they take part in Bayanihan Republic, a fundraising festival for continued relief operations, psychosocial support, and on-ground initiatives to rebuild communities in areas affected by Typhoon Yolanda.

Dakila new

bayanihan republicThe Quezon City Memorial Circle will serve as the center of Bayanihan Republic, beginning with cyclists riding as one in a show of support and solidarity with Yolanda survivors. The day will end with a concert featuring artists jamming as one, sending out messages of courage and hope to a nation that has shown the world what Bayanihan is truly all about.

Throughout the day, bazaars taking part in Bayanihan Republic will be open for everyone where 20% of proceeds will go straight to funds allocated for long-term support for Typhoon Yolanda survivors.

Singer-songwriter and biking enthusiast Nityalila Saulo sees Bayanihan Republic as a multifaceted event that allows everyone to take part in pursuing a defined goal. “Bayanihan Republic is a whole day event where every action is a contribution. It is the perfect venue for anyone who is looking for a way to support sustainable relief efforts for Yolanda affected communities,” Saulo says.

Celebrities and personalities who also pledged their support to Bayanihan Republic will be auctioning off some of their most prized possessions, along with unique opportunities to take part in activities that reflect their interests. Designer and musician Kate Torralba will be auctioning off a gown, while singer Bayang Barrios and actor Ronnie Lazaro will be putting their pre-loved clothes up for auction.

Palanca winner and TV personality, Lourd de Veyra, will auction off a signed copy of This is a Crazy Planets and a signed shirt. De Veyra, who is also president of Dakila, believes in the importance of a sustainable and long-term initiatives as a response to Yolanda.

“These past few days, aid and relief have been coming from organizations both here and abroad, but our responsibility to our fellow Filipinos does not end in delivering relief. Taking part in Bayanihan Republic is a move towards long term response, one that is focused on rebuilding communities and making sure that Yolanda survivors have access to psychosocial support and to resources need to start again,” de Veyra says.

Bayanihan Republic is an initiative of Dakila in partnership with Jam 88.3, with the support of The Asia Foundation and the Fully Abled Nation and in cooperation with the Quezon City Memorial Circle.

[Event] RIDE TO ABOLISH ALL PORK – The Halloween Ride!

RIDE TO ABOLISH ALL PORK – The Halloween Ride!
RIDE TO ABOLISH ALL PORK The Halloween Ride

Ngayong Halloween, mag ride tayo upang hindi masayang ang mga buwis na ating ibinabayad sa mga GHOST PROJECTS..

Hangga’t nandiyan ang PORK BARREL SYSTEM, dadami pa ang mga ghost projects na ito at patuloy na ibubulsa lamang ng mga TRAPO ang pera ng bayan.

Magkita-kita tayo sa October 25, 2013, 6pm sa Eliptical road ng Quezon Memorial Circle malapit sa kanto ng Commonwealth. Magsuot ng holloween costume.

Did you know mga ka-riders?

According to Former National Treasurer and UP Prof Leonor Briones, ang MVUC na binabayad natin (kasama kotse atbp) sa LTO kada taon ay pinaghahati hatian ng mga tongresman (10million kada isa) para pondohan umano ang mga road repairs and construction sa mga distrito nila. Kung nasa 4 million na tayong mga registered motorcycles sa 240 pesos na MVUC na binabayad natin sa LTO kada taon, halos 1 bilyon ang ating tax na napupunta sa mga kongresista na ito…

Pero anu ba ang pakinabang natin? Substandard na mga kalsada, kapos na programa para safety at hindi magandang trato sa ating mga riders. Dyan napupunta ang ibinabayad natin, kapos na serbisyo!

Kaya pagkatapos ng LUNETA AT EDSA TAYO NAMAN MGA RIDERS ANG KIKILOS!

(This is a free initiative of concerned individual riders. BUT WE ARE CALLING ALL CLUBS, FEDERATIONS, ALLIANCES AND ORGANIZATION TO SUPPORT THE INITIATIVE)

[Press Release] Teachers appeal for peace in Zamboanga -TDC

Teachers appeal for peace in Zamboanga

TDC

The Teachers’ Dignity Coalition (TDC) expresses their sentiments amidst the on-going armed confrontation in Zamboanga and other parts of the country.

“Innocent civilians, especially helpless children suffer most in every armed conflict.” Said Benjo Basas the group’s national chairperson.

The group reacted on the escalating conflict in Zamboanga City which is now on its fifth day since a faction of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) members attempted to seize the city last Monday allegedly in accordance with Nur Misuari’s declaration of Bangsamoro independence few weeks ago. Authorities confirmed that the fighting has now spilled over to Lamitan City in nearby island province of Basilan.

“Classes are suspended in affected areas and schools often suffer heavy casualties after the fighting. In a conduct of war, schools and children should be spared and civilians should not be used as human shields.” Basas continued.

Basas said that aside from Zamboanga and Basilan, schools are also affected in Central Mindanao especially in Cotabato and Maguindanao where fighting between the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) breakaway Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) against the AFP and their former comrades in the MILF erupted because of some leaders’ opposition to peace talks with the government.

The group said there were also reports of air strike and strafing in New People’s Army (NPA) camp in Sagada, Mountain Province late last month were the military forces are allegedly stationed in a school. “Sagada is declared as peace zone, thus, government forces and the rebels should refrain from entering Sagada and engaged in fighting in the area.” Basas added.

“We call on all parties to resolve this issue through a peaceful and sincere dialogue. The MNLF should give peace agreement a chance.” Basas said. “A military solution may not be the best option at this time.”

As to the conflict between the government and the NPA, Basas said, “We ask the government and the rebels to give priority to peace negotiation as an option and not armed confrontation. The people in the countryside and the nation suffered much from this four decade-old conflict. We want lasting peace.” Basas ended.

Last September 2, members of the TDC joined hundreds of peace advocates in a caravan from Quezon Memorial Circle to Plaza Miranda in Manila to call for the immediate resumption of peace talks between the government and the National Democratic Front (NDF). September is declared as peace month. #

Dear Friends,

As we near the annual celebration of the International Day of Peace on September 21, 2013, Generation Peace Youth Network (GenPeace) continues its tradition of taking this opportune day to raise awareness, connect and educate the young generation across the country regarding the developments on the peace process. Generation Peace is a nationwide coming together of youth organizations for peace and human rights issues in the country.

This year the youth network is bringing simultaneous peace initiatives in what we consider the “National Day of Action for the Peace Process.” With the theme “Education for Peace: Learn and Support the Peace Talks” we pose a challenge to the Filipino youth to be active agents of peaceful change. Generation Peace will have 10 simultaneous events nationwide.

In line with this, we invite you to our community gathering on Peace Day. Join the different groups and sectors in calling out for peace through dialogues, art booths, exhibits, peace process updates, and interfaith prayers. We are also asking you to collaborate in our on-the-spot nationwide collective art dubbed as the Peace Tree—a collection of do-it-yourself lanterns with your peace messages to the government, NDFP, MILF and peace advocates.

For organizations, we would also like to invite you to register your advocacy and activity booths for the event. Attached is the Peace Day Activity/Advocacy Booth and Exhibition Request Form.

The celebration will be at the Charito Planas Garden, Quezon Memorial Circle on September 21, Saturday from 8:00AM to 1:00PM. Please find attached the provisional program for the event and thank you for confirming with Bev Orozco (RSVP: email generationpeacenetwork@gmail.com or via text 09178147810 on or before the 16th of September 2013, Monday).

[Event] General meeting for CSO- Peoples Monitoring Mechanism (CSO-PMM) – PAHRA

Greetings from the Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates (PAHRA)!

  Last year on December 8, we successfully launched the Civil Society Organization (CSO)- Peoples Monitoring Mechanism (CSO-PMM)  during the Commission on Human Rights’ “Ulat sa Bayan” wherein we symbolically turned over to Chairperson Loretta Rosales documentation of human rights violations.

Currently, the Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates (PAHRA), Philippine Human Rights Information Center (PhilRights), and Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) serve as the secretariat of the CSO-PMM.

The monitoring mechanism was designed as a platform for the broadest possible number of NGOs, peoples’ organizations and Human Rights Defenders that responds to human rights violations by:

a.)    monitoring and documentation of incidents of human rights violations;

b.)    providing statistics, analysis, and reports on the human rights situation in the country;

c.)     facilitating immediate and programmatic response to reported violations; and

d.)    coordinating campaigns towards prevention of violations and breaking of impunity.

The December 8 launching was an important undertaking to introduce this initiative to the public but we have yet to discuss and agree on operational details such as the monitoring agenda, roles and tasks of the organizations, protocols in data gathering, etc.  Thus, to tackle these matters we would like to invite you to our general meeting on January 31, 2012, 12:00 to 5:00 pm at the Max’s Restaurant, Quezon Memorial Circle.

Sincerely yours,

Max de Mesa, Chairperson

[Press Release] Teachers ride bike to welcome school opening – TDC

The Teachers’ Dignity Coalition (TDC) will stage a bike ride and a festive motorcade in Quezon City this morning. Inspired by Pres. Aquino’s bike ride along with his cabinet members several weeks ago, some 300 teachers from Metro Manila and Rizal will participate in this activity to symbolize the physical readiness of teachers for the opening of school year tomorrow. This also aims to challenge the Aquino government to act swiftly on education issues and resolve the perennial problems of education sector.

“Despite the government’s lack of support to public education system, we teachers are always enthusiastic about school opening.” Said Benjo Basas, the group’s chairperson and a teacher from Baesa High School in Caloocan City.

Last week, the group also called on all its members to actively participate in the Brigada Eskwela by mobilizing the people and organizations in their respective school communities and also expressed support for the multi-sectoral initiative Oplan Balik Eskwela (OBE).

“While we are critical in some of the government’s education policies, especially in its budget, we would never deprive the Filipino youth of their fundamental rights to free education.” Basas added. “As educators, we are in full support to the effort of the Department of Education (DepEd) in achieving the EFA (Education for All) goals.” He continued.

The group challenged the Aquino administration to seriously consider the resource shortages in public education system before the implementation programs like the 12-year basic education cycle.

“Based on the president’s legislative agenda, the only education proposal he considered urgent is the expansion of our basic education system from 10 to 12 years. This was also mentioned in his first SONA.

However, even this particular proposal was not considered in the budget for 2011.” Basas lamented.

The group criticized the government for its failure to allot funding for the universal kindergarten program, which they said is badly needed to improve the quality of education.

“Kindergarten system which is an essential part of the K+12 program will be implemented starting June of this year, but without sufficient budget. This is ironic, a flagship program which was never considered in government funding.” He explained.

The TDC also called for a better compensation package for public school teachers.

“We anticipate a good leadership from P-Noy, thus we ask him to seriously consider teachers’ compensation- both monetary and non-monetary. The salary must be at par with the rest of the world- where teaching is regarded as the most important job and the noblest of all professions. Aside from this, teachers must also be given non-wage incentives like medical care, decent housing, education for their children and tax incentives.” Basas explained. “If the government wants to resolve the problems of the society, fixing education system would be a good start” He ended.

The activity today will be participated by several riders’ club of teachers including the Freedom Riders composed of teachers from Northern Caloocan City and the Division of Valenzuela Riders’ Club, its counterpart in Valenzuela City.  The group will assemble at 7:00AM in UP Oblation monument then will push to Quezon Memorial Circle and will stage a cultural program in the Peace Bell Area.

The same festive activity will also be staged in Bataan, Pampanga, Lucena, Cavite, Laguna and Sorsogon.

[Statement/Events] Unahin ang mga Titser! Pahayag ng Teachers’ Dignity Coalition (TDC)

Unahin ang mga Titser
Pahayag ng Teachers’ Dignity Coalition (TDC), Mayo 26, 2011

“Ang paraalan ang salamin ng bayan… ang saligan ng lipunan. Ipakita ninyo sa amin ang paaralan ng bayang iyan at ipakikita namin sa inyo ang kinabukasan ng bayang iyan.”
Jose Rizal (Noli Me Tangere)

Magpapasukan na naman. Mistulang bagong taon para sa ating mga guro ang ganitong panahon. Magsisimula ang mga panibagong hamon. Muli tayong sasabak sa mga paghahanda- Brigada Eskwela, school-based INSET, enrolment at meetings.

Ang mga kakulangan

Minsan pa’y mapapansin ng madla at masmidya ang mga kakulangan sa ating mga paaralan. Kulang na classrooms, upuan, mesa, banyo, libro, computer at iba pang pasilidad. Higit sa lahat, kulang ang mga guro. Ang masaklap, tayo ang pumapasan sa lahat ng kakulangang ito.

Sino nga ba ang nagkulang?

Ayon mismo sa datos ng DepEd, aabot sa 152, 000 ang kulang na classroom para sa taong ito, samantalang mahigit sa 100, 000 guro ang kakailangan. Subalit, naglaan lamang ng budget para sa 13, 000 classrooms at 10, 000 teachers. Taun-taon pa nama’y nadaragdagan ang bilang ng ating mga mag-aaral, mas mabilis silang lumaki kaysa budget na inilalaan.

Ang K+12

Samantalang wala tayong pagtutol sa batayan ng programang ito, hindi naman tayo kumbinsido na ito na nga ang ultimong solusyon sa problema. Kailangan pa rin ng kumprehensibo at sinserong konsiderasyon sa kalalagayan ng mga pampublikong paaralan bago tayo tumungo sa isang ambisyosong programang gaya ng 12-year basic education system. Kailangang tugunan muna ang mga pangunahing pangangailan bago ang ipatupad ito, sapagkat kung hindi ay maaring masayang lamang ang oras at guguling ilalaan dito. Higit sa lahat, mga guro muli ang maisasakripisyo.

Universal Kindergarten System

Itinutulak natin ang free and universal kindergarten system upang mabigyan ng pagkakataon ang lahat ng bata, maging ang mga anak ng maralita na mabigyan ng pre-school education. Subalit hindi naman tayo pabor sa uri ng implementasyon na balak gawin at ginagawa ng ating kagawaran hinggil dito. Batay mismo sa DepEd Order No. 37, s. 2011 ay nakatakdang lumobo ang bilang ng contractual teachers. Sila ay mga gurong magtuturo na walang katiyakan sa seguridad sa trabaho at pasasahurin lamang ng P3, 000 hanggang P6, 000 kada buwan. Sila ang mga gurong nakatakdang magpatupad ng inisyal na programa ng K+12. Ibig sabihin, sa K+12 na pangunahing programa ng ating pangulo sa edukasyon ay muli na namang isasakrispisyo ang karapatan, kagalingan at dignidad ng mga guro.

Bigyang-prayoridad ang Edukasyon, Unahin ang mga Guro

Kung sinsero ang Pamahalaang Aquino na iangat ang kalidad ng edukasyon at abutin ang international standard, dapat ay hindi lang sa haba ng taon tayo sumabay. Dapat ay ihanay natin sa buong mundo ang ating istandard sa budget, pasilidad, class size, teacher to student ratio atbp. Higit sa lahat, dapat ay unahin natin ang kapakanan ng ating mga guro. Sapagkat lahat ng programa sa edukasyon, gaano man ito kaganda ay hindi magtatagumpay kung hindi seryosong tutugunan ang pangangailangan ng mga guro. DAPAT UNAHIN ANG MGA GURO!

Sapat na Benepisyo sa mga Guro, Sapat ng Badyet sa Edukasyon!

Sa Hunyo 5, 2011, huling araw ng bakasyon, ito ang ating panawagan. Ipakita natin sa buong mundo na ang mga gurong Pilipino ay handa nang tumugon sa hamon ng paglilingkod. Hamunin din natin ang pamahalaan na tugunan ang mga pananagutan nito sa mga guro at buong sistema ng edukasyon. Sumama sa ating mga pagkilos at pagdiriwang.
