Unique obstacle run to relive Martial Law period -UP SAMASA Alumni Association

Have you ever wondered what it was like to live in that dark period of our nation’s history when the free press was shut down, the voice of the people was suppressed, and thousands of Filipinos were abducted, tortured and summarily executed?

The University of the Philippines is again living up to its reputation as the bastion of youth social consciousness, this time through an obstacle run that will give runners a taste of what it was like during the years of Martial Law.

Dubbed The Great LEAN Run (TGLR), the activity will feature obstacles reminiscent of dictatorial rule, such as barbed wire, water cannons, anti-riot police, arbitrary arrests and much more. Runners will aim to survive the challenges of the course for a chance to win prizes, not to mention unique bragging rights.

TGLR honours the life of Lean Alejandro, student leader of the 1980s who led the student movement that helped a national people’s action to depose then President Ferdinand Marcos.

Atty. Susan Villanueva, Chairman of the UP SAMASA Alumni Association, said, “The overthrow of the dictator and our subsequent return to democracy is a major victory of the Filipino people. The youth of today should be made aware of the real situation at the time so that they can learn from it and be guided by its lessons as they become the new leaders of the nation.”

Proceeds of the obstacle run will go to the UP fund for the Liwasang Lean Alejandro.

The Great LEAN Run will be held on September 19, Saturday, 5:00pm at the UP Sunken garden and Academic Oval in Diliman. Registration is ongoing online at the Great LEAN Run Facebook page and Chris Sports branches at SM Megamall, SM City North, Glorietta 3 and Metro Marjket Market BGC.

5 YEARS OF PRES. AQUINO’S ADMINISTRATION: Deepening and Broadening the Culture of Impunity; Unchecked Networks of Command Conspiracy

5 YEARS OF PRES. AQUINO’S ADMINISTRATION:
Deepening and Broadening the Culture of Impunity;
Unchecked Networks of Command Conspiracy


The Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates (PAHRA) acknowledge and appreciate the passage of human rights laws in the civil and political arenas, among others, the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of the Anti-Torture Law, the law on Compensation of Human Rights Victims during Martial Law, the law on Anti-Enforced Disappearance, law on the International Humanitarian Law, since Benigno Simeon Aquino III’s became Chief Executive and Commander-in-Chief as steps in the right direction to break through impunity and well within his pronouncement that human rights would be central to his governance.

But such initial steps did not make any significant dent into the prevailing culture of impunity, much less to sufficiently limit its influence in the different branches of government.  In fact, the consequent and concomitant actions not only stymied the gain obtained in making some of its human rights obligations into laws but even deepened as well as broadened the environment and ground for impunity in civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights.  One of the main factors for this impunity is the unchecked networks of command conspiracy.

Command conspiracy is the dark side of command responsibility.  Command responsibility focuses more on the individual military Commander who must ensure that everyone under her/his subordinates are aware and act according to the rules of war and of law as well as their obligations to implement human rights.  Command conspiracy is the collective act or collusion of a superior or officer with personnel under its command, authority, control or responsibility to commit by commission or by omission one or several human rights violations or the rule of law.  Command conspiracy is an act that encourages, incites, tolerates or ignores human rights violations and/or acts with criminal liabilities.  Such networks of command conspiracy breed impunity.  They can exist not only the institutions of our security forces, but also within our civilian bureaucracy.

URGENT APPEAL

July 8, 2015

(PHILIPPINES) Harassment; red tagging of Emily Fajardo, a community organizer assisting the Federation of Lamao Concerned Citizens, Inc. (FLACCI) in Barangay Lamao, Limay, Bataan

ISSUES: physical integrity, in the form of the right to life, liberty and security of the person, individual liberty, in the form of the freedoms of movement, speech, association and assembly, rights as a human rights defender

------

Dear friends,

Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) writes to inform you about the harassment of Emily Fajardo, a community organizer assisting the Federation of Lamao Concerned Citizens, Inc. (FLACCI) in Barangay Lamao, Limay, Bataan.

CASE DETAILS:

Emily Fajardo is a community organizer assisting the Federation of Lamao Concerned Citizens, Inc. (FLACCI) in their fight against the Philippine National Oil Company (PNOC) in Barangay Lamao, Limay, Bataan.

Fajardo and the other FLACCI organizers were invited by a barangay councilor who was supportive of the group’s cause to two Barangay Council sessions last May to give talks to Barangay officials about the harmful effects of coal plants to the environment. However, they were not allowed to continue with the talk as this was allegedly the time that the issues regarding PNOC’s project was being decided upon.

Among the issues were PNOC’s land ownership claim, the proposal for the conversion of the nearby river to a commercial port for use of PNOC, Petron and San Miguel Corporation, and the alleged absence of a barangay hosting resolution. The resolution was one of the legalities needed for PNOC’s coal refinery project, but which would also mean that PNOC and the Barangay had to have had public consultations and dialogues before their project could continue – but no public consultation was ever done.

Fajardo was later informed that some of the Barangay Council members were reluctant to let the group speak because they were “communists”. She was told that they were termed “pulahan” by some of the council members.

CASE BACKGROUND:

In 2009, Emily Fajardo received death threats in relation to her then work with the Nuclear Free Bataan Movement (NFBM). The death threat was sent via text which also tagged Fajardo as “communist”. Some NFBM members, along with Fajardo were also followed by policemen whenever they were doing public addresses, fora, etc. According to Fajardo, this incident has been previously documented.

Dear friends,

 

Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) writes to inform you about the continuing harassment suffered by members of the Bugho Farmers Association (BFA) by Danilo Doroy, Fran Farm Workers chairperson and Barangay Matica tanod in Barangay Matica, Ormoc City, Leyte.

 

CASE DETAILS:

On May 19, 2015, around 10:00 a.m., members of the Bugho Farmers Association (BFA) were harassed by Barangay Matica tanod and Fran Farm Workers chairperson Danilo Doroy at Sitio Boongon, Barangay Matica, Ormoc City, Leyte.

On the day of the incident, BFA members were plowing the field when 50 unidentified bolo and machete-wielding Fran Farm Workers led by Doroy arrived and surrounded them.

According to Rosenda Apay, BFA chairperson, the members stopped plowing and returned to their houses within the farm premises. The tarpaulins where their rights to the ownership of the land were printed were destroyed by Doroy.

On May 27, 2015, around 10:00 a.m., 20 unidentified men with bolos and machetes took over the land where the BFA members planted and plowed.

Apay narrated that several unidentified men with bolos and machetes have been coming in and out of the area since their self installation. They seemed to survey the farm and were taking videos and photos of the beneficiaries while they engage in farming activities.

On June 5, 2015, the farmer beneficiaries asked the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) to put up a military or police detachment to keep the place peaceful.
