EDITORIAL: Governance and Human Rights

Democracy means the rule of the people. Democracy can also be said to be a “collective self-determination by equal and free citizens … to determine the form and direction of their polity”.

 
In the Name of the People: Stop the Repression

by Jerbert Briola

On January 30, 2001, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo (GMA) kindled the fires of hope in the hearts of Filipinos. GMA swore she would be remembered as one of those people who spoke “never again, (they said) will we tolerate a lifestyle that necessarily precludes serving the people and serving them well. Never again, (they said), will we allow our basic rights to be trampled.”

Among those who listened to GMA were clergy, youth and students, workers, urban poor, non-government organizations and human rights activists. For some people, at least, there would be a new life. There would be food, there would be jobs, and there would be roof over their heads. And there would be democracy in its truest sense.

 
Justice for Arip, Justice for All Political Prisoners
Volume 21 Number 1

What makes the story of Arip Malacaw poignant is that his life, though marked by extreme hardship, continues to give a sense of hope. He derives his strength from the love of his children and his struggle for justice. Indeed, what is most striking about his story was the account of his detention. Quite apart from the fears was the vividness with which he recalled the atrocities he suffered in the hands of the military and the manner by which he was arrested. His story tells the situation and the gravity of the experiences of the Muslim political detainees languishing in jails that one can also feel their pains.

Arip's story is no farce. It is tragedy.

Runruno. The name seems to have derived from the word “runo”, which is a kind of wild grass with similarity to cogon grass that thrives well even on hilly areas. The grass is largely covering the area of Barangay Darubba or “karunuan” as the villagers called the place.

Spirituality and Human Rights
by Sr. Maria Cecilia Bayona, AMP

In most instances, the selection of a topic for discussion, a dialogue, or a forum is never chosen out of mere fancy or sheer impulse.  They do not emerge ex nihilo; neither are they formed out of a vacuum.  For they are, most often than not, reflections of a prevailing social or organizational context.  They, in turn, contain antimonies and implications that demand resolution through the collective efforts of people who are most likely to be affected.
