Archdiocese of Caceres spearheads anti-EJK, anti-death penalty campaign


On March 1, 2017, 4PM, at the Cathedral Patio, our beloved Archbishop of Caceres will lead the Via Crucis, with the theme “An Dalan Kan Cruz ni Cristo: Burabod nin Pagbabago sa Parokya.”
As we pray for our parishes, we contemplate on Christ’s passion as He carried the cross and walked to His crucifixion.

As Filipino Catholics, we are called to bring the Gospel to society, and society to God. In the midst of the challenges in our country today, let us join the Via Crucis fervent in prayer, fueled by our love for our country, firm in our desire for justice and fully aware that peace cannot coexist with terror and tyranny.

In an effort to make our voices be heard, statement shirts that proclaim the value of life are available at St. Paul Media Center, St Jude Parish - Naga City, and Ateneo de Naga University Press. We encourage everyone who will make the Way of the Cross on March 1 to wear the shirt as a vote for life and against killings and death penalty. Those who cannot wear the statement shirt, please wear any white or black shirt.

The Via Crucis is an expression of self-giving as Christ suffered and died for our sins. Our collective prayer on March 1 declares our openness to follow Christ’s example and to take up our own cross so our country will receive “the Word which redeems, the Blood which purifies, and the Spirit which gives life.”

Let us pray for our parishes so they may be instruments of conversion. Let us also pray for our own conversion so we may be worthy disciples of Christ. Let our voices be heard.

Youth urged to register for SK polls

MANILA 2/27/17 -- Raising concern over the reported low turnout of voter registrants for the Sangguniang Kabataan (youth) elections, a Senator on Monday urged the youth to register to boost its turnout before registration ends on April 29.

“Now, more than ever, we must speak out, we must participate in electing our leaders,” Sen. Paolo Benigno Aquino IV, former chair of the Committee on Youth said.

Aquino made the call after the Commission on Elections (Comelec) reported a low turnout of registrants, which number just 193,229 from January to February 10 this year.

He said the Comelec is expecting six million new voters (two million regular-aged voters, and four million youth) before registration ends. The SK and barangay elections will be held simultaneously on Oct. 23, 2017.

SK Reform Act

Aquino, as former chair of the Committee on Youth pushed for passage of Republic Act No. 10742 or the SK Reform Act as co-author and co-sponsor in the 16th Congress.

The SK Reform Act, which is the first law with an anti-dynasty provision, prohibits relatives of elected officials up to second civil degree of consanguinity or affinity from seeking SK posts.

It also adjusts age limit of SK officials from 15 to 17 to 18 to 24 years old, making them legally capable of entering into contracts and be held accountable and liable for their actions.

SK officials will now be required to undergo leadership training programs to expose them to the best practices in governance and guide their development as leaders. (PNA)

Drug lab query continues

Committee on Dangerous Drugs points to more inconsistencies

VIRAC, Catanduanes 2/27/17 (Bicol Standard)—The House Committee on Dangerous Drugs is bent on conducting a deeper probe into the alleged seeming negligence by the police and local officials here that led to the escape of four Chinese nationals believed to be involved in the operation of the mega shabu laboratory in Barangay Palta Small here.

The congressional inquiry held last week (February 23) centered on the alleged failure on the part of the police to report at least 20 kilos of shabu with a street value of P100 million.

Also, the Committee pointed at the supposed delaying of the issuance of a search warrant which was necessary for a thorough police investigation.

‘No missing shabu’

Interviewed by the Bicol Standard, Police Chief Supt. Melvin Buenafe responded to the allegations that there was missing shabu, or that the police failed to make a report on the matter.

“There is no missing shabu. The committee was asking about it based on the report or presentation made whereby it was declared that it is with the crime lab that has custody. And all these are in our reports," he said.

"Kaipohan tulos makapag file para sa inquest proceedings katong arrested na suspects under custody, kaya ginamit nindang evidence muna su finished product na shabu at hand tanganing dai ma-jeopardize si pag sangat kaso, kaya dawa dai pa na-examine gabos, such as the met-base liquid na sinasabing pwedeng nag-aabot P100 million an value, ipina-file na muna si kaso ta may reglementary period na sinusunod," explained Buenafe.

Protection, deception?

During the hearing, Barbers expressed his suspicion that the Chinese nationals who were led by one Jason Gonzales Uy and three Chinese chemists were being accorded protection by authorities from Catanduanes.

The solon emphasized that the mega shabu lab was constructed without the appropriate barangay and town permits.

It was also unusual, Barbers said, that the local electric cooperative extended power connections even without the shabu lab operators first presenting clearance from the local Bureau of Fire Protection.

Likewise, it was strange that the shabu lab was constructed and even started operation without being noticed by the police and local officials, he noted.

Cong. Barbers and Teves were further irked by the seeming deception made by Judge Lelu Contreras about her prior presence at the shabu lab.

It was only when local media personalities presented a picture of her together with Mayor Samuel Laynes and Chief Supt. Buenafe indicating that they were in the shabu lab prior to her signing of the search warrant.

Her alibi was that she was just outside the building and did not enter the shabu lab, Barbers and Teves added.

Meanwhile, Provincial Prosecutor Mary Jane Zantua was also quizzed by the House Committee members.

This was after she ordered the police officers to prevent the members of the investigating committee to enter the lab to conduct their own ocular inspection on February 23.

Despite said order of Zantua, the lawmakers were able to enter after a delay of more than an hour.

Zantua reasoned out that her only intention was to preserve the evidence inside the lab, brushing aside insinuations that somebody called her up and ordered to stop the lawmakers from entering the premises.

Armed men

The Barbers group vowed to dig deeper into the report that at least eight heavily armed men wearing bonnets and hoods allegedly claimed to be members of the NBI harassed the shabu lab caretaker Lawrence Pinera on November 25, 2016, several hours before the police raid.

In addition, they would like to clarify the veracity of the information that the armed men could have escorted or paved the way for the escape of suspects Jason Uy and three Chinese chemists.

At present, only Lawrence Pinera, the caretaker of the warehouse, is in the custody of the government and charged with violations of Republic Act 9165.

Jason Gonzales Uy and Paolo Uy remain at large.

Mandatory 'citizen service training' for college students eyed

MANILA 2/27/17 -- A bill has been filed in the Senate seeking for the mandatory training of Filipino college students in tasks related to national defense, law enforcement, and disaster risk reduction and management.

Under Senate Bill 1322, Senate Pres. Aquilino Pimentel III called for the establishment of a Citizen Service Training Course for their possible mobilization in the service of the nation during times of emergencies and contingencies in the form of natural and man-made calamities and external and internal security threats.

Also called the Citizen Service Act, the bill proposes a mandatory Basic Citizen Service Training Course (Basic CSTC) which will form part of the curricula of all baccalaureate degree courses and all technical vocational courses that require at least two years to complete.

Moreover, the bill also seeks the establishment of a Citizen Service Mobilization Commission (CSMC) which will administer the program.

The Basic CTSC course would be completed over four semesters in the first two years of all baccalaureate degrees and vocational and technical courses and will be a requisite for graduation. (PNA)

Elizabeth Oropesa
NAGA CITY 2/27/17 (Bicol Standard)--Bicolana actress Elizabeth Oropesa has issued a scathing reaction to Jim Paredes' tiff with a young Duterte supporter during 31st EDSA Day celebration at the People Power Monument.

Interviewed by the Bicol Standard, Oropesa said, "I have said it all in my video post."

In the video, she told Paredes: "I'm so disappointed...Hindi ko maubos maisip na magagawa mo yun."

The video has since gotten 1.6 million views.

"Ingat ka lang talaga. Kasi hindi lahat ng tao ay may pasensya. Baka makatapat ka ng isang taong hindi ka sasantuhin," she emphasized.

Oropesa is a staunch supporter of President Duterte.

It would be recalled that Paredes had a verbal tussle with a member of Duterte Youth during said event.

Paredes was quoted as having told said youth, "Look at me! Look at me, ha! Deny your conscience, look at me. Di ka makatingin ano? You can't even look. Duwag!"

BAYAN-Bicol issues statement on transport strike


SA BIKOL : 1500 na Driver at Operator ng Jeepney ang Kumasa pwera pa ang Bus,Tricycle at Van, 90% paralysis ang inaasahan Bukas!

Sistematikong pagpatay sa kabuhayan ng humigit-kumulang sa 650,000 mga drayber at 200,000 maliliit na operaytor ang planong jeepney phase-out ng rehimeng Duterte upang bigyan-kasiyahan ang matinding pagnanasa sa limpak-limpak na tubo ng mga dayuhan at malalaking korporasyon sa transportasyon sa ating bansa sa tabing ng panukalang Jeepeney Modernization Program. Sa planong ito, aagawin sa mga drayber at operaytor ang pangmasang serbisyo ng mga jeepeney na deka-dekadang naglilingkod sa mga mananakay na publiko upang isailalim sa kontrol at monopolyo ng malalaking kapitalista. Bunga ito ng sabwatan ng mga dayuhang kapitalista, malalaking burgesya-kumprador at burukrata-kapitalista na nakangkla sa imperyalismong globalisasyong patakarang neoliberal, na matapat namang isinusulong ng kanilang mga galamay sa gabinete ni Pangulong Duterte at ng reaksyunaryong Lehislatura.

Ang Jeepney Modernization Program diumano ang solusyon sa problema sa matinding trapik sa Metro Manila at sa highly urbanized centers. Ang mga jeepney ang isa sa mga nakikitang dahelan ng Gobyerno na sanhi di-umano ng matinding trapik. Kailangan daw alisin nasa kalsada ang mga lumang jeep na hindi bababa sa 15 taon na ang edad at dapat palitan ng bagong moda at makakalikasang jeepney na aprobado ng Gobyerno. Ang ipapalit ay electric jeepney o e-jeepney at Euro 4 engine na gawa sa ibang bansa. Ang jeepney, prangkisa at maging ang kita ng mga manggagawa sa transportasyon ay isasailalim din sa kontrol ng malalaking negosyante ayon sa eskemang tinatawag na fleet management. Ang buong sistema ng pampublikong transportasyon ay magiging monopolyo ng malalaking negosyo. Hindi garantiya na kung malalaking negosyo ang hahawak sa pampublikong transportasyon bubuti ang serbisyo, ligtas ang mga sasakay at bababa ang pamasahe. Kabalintunaan ito dahil sa karanasan natin sa palpak na serbisyo ng MRT at LRT sa ilalim ng pribatisasyon sa operasyon ng mga ito. Mas lalong tataas ang singil sa pamasahe dahil sa patuloy na pagtaas ng singil sa kuryente at presyo ng petrolyo na magiging dagdag na pasanin pa ng hikahos na mamamayan.

Totoong kailangan ang moderno, episyente, makakaliksan, abot-kayang pangmasang transportasyon na hindi isinasakripisyo ang interes at kapakanan ng mga tsuper, maliliit na operaytor at riding public. Ang kailangan ay isang pangmasang transportasyon na nasa kontrol ng Gobyerno at hindi monopolisado ng dayuhan at malalaking negosyo, na ang motibo ay serbisyo hindi tubo. Magkakaroon lamang ito ng katuparan kung mayroong pambansang industriyalisasyon.

Sa halip na jeepney phase-out, jeepney rehabilition ang gawin. Tulungan ng Gobyerno na maging environment-friendly at mas mapabuti ang serbisyo ng kasalukuyang ipinapasadang mga jeep.

Higit na kailangang ituloy ang GPH-NDFP Peace talks upang makompleto at maisapinal ang Comprehensive Agreement on Socio-Economic Reforms (CASER) na siyang hahawan sa daan tungo sa pambansang industriyalisasyon kakambal ang tunay na repormang agraryo na batayang pundasyon sa pag-unlad ng pambansang ekonomiya; magwawakas sa pananalasa ng neoliberalismo sa ekonomiya; magsusulong ng episyente, pangmasa, makakalikasan, abot-kayang pampublikong sistemang transportasyon.

Tutulan, Labanan ang jeepney phase-out!

Ibasura ang Jeepney Modernization Program na nakaangkla sa patakarang neoliberalismo.

Ilantad at kondenahin ang sabwatan ng mga dayuhang korporasyon, malalaking burgesya kumprador, burukrata-kapitalista sa Gobyerno at mga dilawang lider sa transportasyon na naghahangad ng limpak na ganansya sa jeepney phase out.

Suportahan ang kampanya upang itulak ang rehimeng Duterte na ituloy ang GPH-NDFP Peacetalks.

Legazpi City tops LGU-sponsored PhilHealth card holders in Albay

LEGAZPI CITY – The share of local government unit (LGU)-sponsored beneficiaries of the Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) in Albay has sharply increased in 2016, said a Philhealth official in the province.

Darlene L. Nuyles, acting head of the agency’s Local Health Insurance Office (LHIO) in Albay, cited in particular the case of Legazpi City which gave 4,407 impoverished residents in the city’s 70 villages access to the government’s universal health care program.

“There was a ‘boom’ in Legazpi’s sponsorship of beneficiaries during last year’s period,” she said.

According to Daisy Jane Daet, who monitors the records of LHIO-Albay, Legazpi’s beneficiaries accounted for 45 percent of the nearly 10,000 total number of LGU-sponsored beneficiaries in the province’s three cities (Legazpi, Ligao and Tabaco) and 15 towns as of November 30, 2016.

She said the total sponsored beneficiaries in the 18 LGUs in Albay reached 9,738 as of that period.

Daet said Tabaco City was second with 1,703 while Daraga town was third with 1,544 who were PhilHealth access card holders.

Nuyles said the increased membership to the national health insurance program in various communities due to LGU sponsorship augurs well for Philhealth, which has turned 22 years old this month of February, that is also celebrated as National Health Insurance month. (by Gina V. Rodriguez, PNA)
