"Lupa at Kapayapaan ipaglaban! NDFP-GRP Peace Talks Suportahan!" said the members of the said group, in a statement issued a few hours ago.
The said group of fishermen are calling the attention of the government to protect the Ragay Gulf area, which they believe has been neglected by law enforcement agencies tasked to implement the Fishery Laws.
Meanwhile, the farmers’ group have reminded the government to give back the coco levy funds to the small coconut farmers, as promised to them during the last election.
Today, they will proceed to the Office of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA).
At 1:00 p.m., they will picket in front of the offices of the DENR, BFAR, PCA and the Department of Agriculture in this city.

Rolls of newsprint have been printed, hours of airtime broadcast, and gigabytes of disk space allocated to reporting the President’s oral histrionics. But it was surely a major factor in his being elected. To many, his language skills (or lack of it) mark him as a man of the people, one of the boys.
Early in his presidency, he vowed that he will tone it down. But of course, he didn’t. Old habits die hard.
Damage was initially confined within the country’s borders when he was merely lambasting his local critics and adversaries. But then he graduated to international notoriety when he started bad mouthing world leaders, including the Pope and the U.S. president. Still, it didn’t prevent him and probably contributed to his being elected chairman of the ASEAN Summit in 2017.
Other former Philippine presidents surely used foul language – but in private. President Quezon was known to curse in Spanish.
U.S. presidents have been caught using unacceptable speech – Bush, Carter, Clinton, Johnson, even Obama, and most notably Nixon – but mostly behind closed doors.
But it’s our very own President who’s elevating the art of profanity to new global heights.
Over fifty years ago, the model of the fearless leader was one who spoke softly but carried a big stick. It characterized U.S. President Roosevelt’s foreign policy. In various movie characters played by Garry Cooper, John Wayne and our very own Fernando Poe Jr., the brave hero had a soft voice but packed deadly fists.
But everything changed with the advent of rap music and social media. Rap music celebrates foul language as a valid form of self-expression. And social media make public what used to be private. Where once you used to swear at your boss in private, you can now swear at him in public.
Thus profanity seems commonplace, and even a requirement, to show sincerity and gravitas.
The President is being advised by friends and foes alike to avoid offensive language when dealing with foreign leaders. He is being urged to master the art of diplomacy.
Or learn the art of doublespeak. Masters of doublespeak have the ability of insulting a person without the latter realizing that he has been insulted.
For example, instead of calling a person old and washed-out, we can call him experienced. Instead of describing a person crazy or abnormal, call him unique. And stop calling them drug addicts! They are victims of substance abuse.
Or learn the art of the Shakespearean insult. This doesn’t only make the “insultee” unaware that he has been insulted. It also makes the “insulter” seem smart and educated.
For example, instead of calling a person a slanderous demagogue, say to him “Thy tongue outvenoms all the worms of Nile.” - from Cymbeline by Shakespeare
Or to call somebody ugly, say instead “Thine face is not worth sunburning.” - from Henry V by Shakespeare
Or to call someone stupid or dull, say “Your brain is as dry as the remainder biscuit after voyage.” - from As You Like It by Shakespeare
But let’s get real. The President did not get elected because of his tact and diplomatic skills. He was elected because the people believed he could get things done.
Therefore, the President should remain a doer, not a talker. Do what needs to be done and not get distracted by every little criticism. If a response is absolutely necessary, let one of his underlings do it.

The municipalities of Sto.Domingo, Malilipot and Tiwi declared states of calamity in September, after the drying up of natural springs which are major sources of water supply in these areas, DSWD-Bicol Director Arnel Garcia said Tuesday.
He said 55 barangays with more than 22,560 families or 108,358 persons in the three municipalities towns have been affected.
The cause of the drying up of water sources in the three towns has yet to be ascertained but some have attributed these to the recent activities of Mayon Volcano.
Mayon was put on alert level one status on Sept. 8, that indicated abnormalities in the volcano’s behavior.
The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs), however, has not confirmed any direct connection between Mayon’s new alert status and the drying up of water sources in the three towns.
Garcia said DSWD-Bicol’s assistance, which has now amounted to PHP800,124, is in the form 10,258 pieces of six-liter bottled water that are being distributed to the three towns.
He said DSWD is continuously coordinating with the affected local government units to alleviate the scarce water supply situation in the areas.
“Water, especially potable water, is a basic necessity — it’s a human right. We cannot afford any delay in the delivery of services to the people affected,” said Garcia.
In Sto. Domingo, where 24,290 persons or 5,129 families in 17 barangays are affected, the local government passed a resolution on September 21 declaring a state of calamity.
Villagers tapped into alternate sources such as deep wells to cope with the situation.
In Tiwi town, DSWD-5 said 8,800 families or 44,000 persons from 20 barangays are affected by the water shortage.
The local government declared a state of calamity on Sept. 28 due to rising temperatures in the past few months that caused damage to crops and decrease in the supply of drinking water.
In Malilipot town, 8,631 families or 40,068 persons in over 18 barangays are affected by the water shortage.
Additional water provisions are being given by the Bureau of Fire Protection in Santo Domingo and neighboring Tabaco City to the affected municipalities. (PNA)

This is the appeal of Pat Gutierrez, spokesperson of Albay Power and Energy Corporation (APEC).
In a press conference, she said only 8% of its 180,000 member-consumers are regularly paying their power bills.
As a result of which, APEC’s debt has ballooned to Php1.8-B, she added.
If the corporation is unable to pay its debt on December 22, the electric supply in Albay may be disconnected, she said. This is since their mother company San Miguel Corporation has not agreed to assume the payment of APEC’s debts.
In connection with this, Gutierrez advised member-consumers who have balances to approach the corporation for assistance.
She added that they should not wait for the disconnection notice to arrive.
Meantime, she admitted that APEC has been having difficulty with its power bill records. However, the same should not be used as an excuse for consumers to not pay their bills, she said.
On the other hand, Atty. Oliver Olaybal, former member of the board of directors of Albay Electric Cooperative (ALECO), said in a recent statement that such non-payment could be due to the following reasons:
“First. Electric power is not affordable. Salceda must introduce legislation removing VAT from the price structure of electricity.
Second. Restore franchise operations to ALECO. The consumers are hesitant in having to pay their dues to APEC because ALECO is not under contract with APEC. Besides, the law that created NEA and the electric cooperatives in 1973 prohibits the sale or lease of the assets of the utilities. These assets are reserved for liquidation and distribution to the consumers upon expiration of ALECO's franchise in 2041.”
Olaybal added: “What happened to ALECO is happening to the rest of the failed electric cooperatives.
Salceda could also introduce legislation abolishing NEA which has impoverished electric cooperatives through overpriced loan packages.
NEA has destroyed electric cooperatives by oppressive management takeovers, exercising authority without taking responsibility. Anyway, upon conversion of the electric cooperatives into stock corporations like Meralco, the utilities wound have no more need for NEA.
Salceda must require NEA to release to ALECO the undisbursed balance of P150 million out of the P500 million grant given by the government in 2007, so that ALECO shall have something to start with.
It is misleading to suggest the privatization of electric cooperatives. They are privately owned by the consumers who contribute until now for the acquisition of their facilities.
ALECO through its President Jaime B. Chua has a pending petition with Energy Regulatory Commission to disauthorize further franchise operations in Albay, because APEC has no congressional franchise as required by law, and APEC is without ERC license to sell electricity in Albay province.”
Duterte said that he has signed Executive Order (EO) No. 3, which became effective last September 1.
The said EO 3 fixes the combat duty pay for the members of the AFP and the PNP to P3,000 per month, from the current P150 daily or a maximum of P1,500 monthly.
This is six times the amount higher than the P500 per month for soldiers and nine months bigger than the P340 monthly incentive that policemen receive.

Gray, a 22-year-old Filipino-Australian from Oas town was crowned Miss World Philippines 2016 on Sunday when she bested more than 20 contestants at the finals at Manila Hotel Tent.
Domingo said Gray’s family stayed in Oas town before migrating to another country. Her mother, Normita Ragas Magnayon is from Ilaor, Oas while members of her clan are musicians.
He said they will invite Gray to visit their town before competing in the Miss World pageant in Washington D.C. in December.
Gray received also several special awards such as Miss Manila Hotel, best in fashion runway and in the swimsuit and evening gown portions.
Aside from Gray, another Albayana, Mara Muñoz from Pantao, Libon town was named Miss World third runner-up.
Albay second district Representative Joey Sarte Salceda also commended Gray and Muñoz for their triumphs and said a victory welcome awaits them here.
Several Albayanas were winners in past international beauty pageants. Among them was Yvethe Marie Avisado Santiago of Daraga town, an accountancy graduate of Bicol University who was crowned Miss Supranational 2014.
Santiago who passed the licensure examination for certified of public accountants (CPA), won in the local Daragang Magayon festival beauty pageant before joining the Binibining Pilipinas competition.
Albay province through the Pageant Academy led by former Board Member Glenda Ong-Bongao has been producing several beauty titlists in national and international competitions.
Among the notable Albayana beauty queens were Miss Universe fourth runner up Miriam Quiambao of Cagraray Island, Bacacay town, Miss International Precious Lara Guigaman of Ligao City, Miss Universe fourth runner up Venus Raj and Miss International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago.
Raj and Santiago were both adopted daughters of Albay. (PNA)

He said studies have established that the massive and traffic congestion in the country has become a “national emergency” requiring “immediate, decisive and comprehensive solutions.”
Salceda said Waze, an international traffic software application, reported that Metro Manila had the worst traffic in the world in 2015.
Citing Waze, he said Metro Manila residents spend 1,000 hours in traffic per year while metropolitan areas in other countries spend only 300 hours.
The Albay solon cited a report of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) which said that land and air traffic congestion is costing the country losses in potential income of P2.4 billion daily.
“The National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) added this daily losses will balloon to P6 billion by 2030 if no intervention is undertaken,” said Salceda.
He said JICA also reported that more cars on the road are causing a rise in greenhouse emissions from 4.7 million tons per year in 2012 to 5.7 million tons per year by 2030, thus “causing a staggering cost in human health and climate change.”
Salceda said the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines has reported that airport congestion is causing the airlines at least P7 billion per year in fuel and engine maintenance costs.
The Albay lawmaker noted the everyday nightmare experienced by commuters in Metro Manila.
“There is no lack of daily reminders of the pervasive traffic crisis with personal stories of friends and family members missing out on their personal and professional lives because they spend literally half of their day in cars, jeepneys, buses, and planes wallowing in traffic,” he said.
Salceda said what is lacking is a solution that will stop the crisis from escalating and spreading to other urban hubs such as Cebu and Davao.
He said HB 3712 mandates the formulation of a decongestion and transportation network development reform plan for four sectors--land-based, rail transport and toll roads, air-based and seaports.
The bills seeks the designation of a traffic crisis manager under the Department of Transportation, grant of authority for special modes of procurement, safeguards in implementing the executive order on Freedom of Information to ensure transparency and accountability and creation of a congressional oversight committee.
Salceda said the House Bill provides an initial P20 billion to jump start the traffic reform plan which can be sourced from the current year’s budget of the agencies implementing the measure and from savings of the national government
He added the House Bill is in line with Article 2, Section 10 of the Philippine Constitution “to promote social justice in all phases of national development. (PNA)
