SOCIAL MEDIA RALLY
March 26 | 8pm

Patuloy ang pagtaas ng bilang ng mga bagong kaso (mas marami ang daily cases kumpara sa 2020), napakataas ng daily positivity rate pero limitado pa rin ang COVID testing, punuan ang ospital at pagod na ang mga frontliners, kulang na kulang pa rin ang bakuna, at walang ayuda para sa mga mahihirap sa gitna ng pandemya. Sa lahat ng ito, si Duterte ang pangunahing salarin dahil walang direksyon ang kanyang pandemic response at nakaasa sa mga militaristang tugon.

Sabay-sabay tayong manawagan sa ating mga social media accounts! Papanagutin ang rehimeng Duterte sa inutil, palpak at militaristang pandemic response!

ALERT: PNP DELAYING MEDICAL ATTENTION TO DETAINED LUMAD STUDENT EXPERIENCING HEALTH DIFFICULTIES

One of the detained Bakwit School 7, Esmelito Oribawan, reportedly vomitted blood last night, March 17, 2021, in his detention cell. This was discovered upon the regular round of visits to the 7 detained for their food and other essential needs. The Save Our Schools Network Cebu has requested for the PNP to provide immediate medical attention for Esme, given the urgency. However, the PNP is requiring a letter before attending to Esme’s condition.

We are concerned for Esme and the rest of the Bakwit School 7’s health situation. The Network has repeatedly and long requested from the PNP for their immediate health check-up upon forcibly isolating and shoving them into different detention facilities with questionable jail conditions. However, the PNP did not attend to our requests.

We recall that on March 2, 2021, the 6 male detainees (Datu Benito, Datu Segundo, Chad, Moddie, Esmelito, Jomar) were isolated and transferred to different police stations in Cebu City after the PRO-7 alleged that their station was already getting crowded. However, the new stations were even more crowded and Esmelito at Cebu City Police Station 5 complained that same night of having trouble breathing due to poor ventilation in the station. He was also mixed in with detainees who had not yet received their swab tests.

We reiterate our call for the immediate medical attention for Esme. We welcome volunteers from our healthcare workers who would like to extend their help to Esme and the rest of the Bakwit School 7. Lastly, with these recent events and the deplorable situations experienced by the detained, we louden our call to release the Bakwit School 7 and drop all false charges against them!

Kakay Tolentino, indigenous Dumagat from Sierra Madre, Philippines and National Coordinator of BAI Indigenous Women's Network shares about the giant dam that will eat up the mountain, lands and communities of indigenous Dumagat.

Last March 7, dubbed as "Bloody Sunday" in Southern Luzon, Philippines (where the Dumagat area is located), 9 was killed and 6 were arrested. This includes 2 Dumagat active in the anti-dam campaign. This added to the growing list of attacks against river defenders around the world highlighting the urgent action needed to protect our rivers and its guardians.

Kakay Tolentino's sharing is part of “Breaking the Barriers” webinar organized by IPMSDL, Asia Pacific Research Network - APRN, Asia Pacific Network of Environment Defenders - APNED and People's Coalition on Food Sovereignty - Global last August 11.

Sandugo - Movement of Moro and Indigenous Peoples for Self-Determination

15 Marso 2021 / Official Statement

Dugo, Dumi, Ginto

Isang taon ng salot sa pambansang minorya. Para sa ating mga pambansang minorya, maikakatawan ang nakaraang taon sa tatlong bagay: dugo, dumi, at ginto.

INOSENTENG DUGO

Bilang mga katutubo, sanay tayong manirahan nang malayo sa mga baryong maaliwalas ngunit malayo sa mga ospital at health center sakaling matamaan ng karamdaman. Batid natin na kung tayo’y magmimintis sa pag-iingat, mararagasa ng pandemya ang ating mga komunidad.

“Manatili sa bahay, huwag lalabas,” iyan ang abiso sa atin. Ngunit sa halip na karagdagang mga manggagawang pangkalusugan, mga militar ang ipinuwesto sa ating lugar. Lingid sa ating kaalaman, hindi pala pandemya ang manghihimasok sa aming mga kabahayan, kundi dahas.

Madaling araw ng ika-29 ng Disyembre 2020, dinumog ng mga pulis ang mga tahanan ng mga kapwa nating Tumandok. Bitbit ang search warrant mula Kamaynilaan, walang-awang minasaker ng kapulisan ang mga nahihimbing nating mga kapatid. “Nanlaban” raw.

Ganito rin ang naging pagturing sa mga kapwa nating Dumagat at Ati nitong ika-7 ng Marso. Muling dumanak ang dugo sa loob mismo ng tahanan. Sila’y mga magsasaka, mag-uuling, at gabay sa mga turista sa kanilang lugar. Hindi pandemya ang pumatay sa kanila, kundi ibang klaseng salot: iyong may mga puting helicopter na nandadagit ng mga bangkay.

MARUMING LABAN

Bawal daw kaming magtungo sa aming mga ‘uma’ dahil sa pandemya. Ngunit bakit hindi ipinagbawal ang patuloy na pambobomba sa aming mga kabundukan at lupang ninuno? Sa karanasan ng mga kapwang Aeta sa Zambales, hindi bakuna ang inihatid, kundi pag-aresto at pag-tortyur. Inakusahan silang mga rebelde, at bilang pagpapahirap, pinakain ng dumi ng tao. Dalawa sa kanila ang kinasuhan ng terorismo—ang pinakaunang nahagupit ng bagong Anti-Terrorism Law, na pinanday at ipinasa ng administrasyon sa gitna ng pandemya. Dagdag pa, ang dalawang akusado’y nilito ng National Commission of Indigenous Peoples upang isisi ang kanilang paghihirap, hindi sa mga awtoridad na nanghuli sa kanila, kundi sa mga abugado na una nilang naging manananggol.

Sa gitna ng pagsisikap ng mga paaralan na makaagapay sa bagong sitwasyon, inuna pa ng National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) at mga kasapi nitong kapulisan at Kagawaran ng Kagalingan at Pagpapaunlad Panlipunan (DSWD) ang napakaruming mga hakbangin. Nitong ika-15 ng Pebrero, binulabog ang mga mag-aaral nang kanilang salakayin ang Lumad Bakwit School sa Cebu. Dinakip ang mga bata, at kinasuhan pa ang mga boluntaryong g**o, mga datu at ilang mga estudyante ng kidnapping. Sa halip na pagtuunan ng rekurso ng DSWD para sa paghahatid ng ayuda sa mga nangangailangan, ginastusan at pinagkaabalahan pa nito ang pagkukubli sa mga kabataang Lumad. Sukdulang ipagkait ang bata sa kanyang magulang. Kahit ang kagawarang dapat ay mapagkalinga sa nasa laylayan, nagawa pang maliitin at masamain ang ang ama na kanilang pinaratangang rebelde; kundi pa nagdesisyon ang korte at kinalampag ng mga tagapagtaguyod, hindi ibibigay ng DSWD ang namimighating bata sa kanyang magulang.

Hanggang puso’y nanunuot ang kalupitan, nanlilimahid ang kaloob-looban ng rehimeng ito.

GINTONG NAKAW

Tayo ba’y pinagbawalang lumabas upang hindi natin makita ang lantarang pananamantala? Habang tayo’y nangangamba sa kalusugan at kabuhayan, panakaw namang ipinag-ibayo ng pamahalaan ang mga proyektong nagnanais lamang angkatin ang ginto’t yaman ng ating lupang ninuno. Kabilang dito ang mga mapanirang proyektong matagal nang tinututulan ng mga mamamayan, tulad ng Tampakan Mining Project sa kabundukan ng mga B’laan sa Timog Cotabato, at Didipio Open-pit Mine sa kalupaan ng mga Bugkalot-Ilongot ng Nueva Vizcaya.

Lagpas sa kapabayaan, sinamantala pa ng gobyernong Duterte ang sakuna upang sunggaban ang emergency powers. Limpak-limpak na ginto ang inumit mula sa kaban ng bayan, at ibinaon pa tayo sa sanlaksang utang. Ngunit hanggang ngayon, ang alam lang nitong pansalag sa pandemya ay curfew. Hindi Covid-19 ang lumilipol sa atin, kundi kapabayaan at mismong kamay ng estado.

Sa halip na puksain ang Covid-19, tayong mga pambansang minorya ang pinupuksa ng gobyerno. Tayo ba ang salot? Ano ang ating kasalanan—ang pagtatanggol sa ating mayaman at mayabong na lupang ninuno? Iyan ay tungkulin at taal na karapatan natin.

TAON NG PAGPAPASYA

Isang taon na mula nang unang mag-lockdown. Sa simula pa lamang, hindi tinugunan ng administrasyong Duterte ang panawagang libre at malawakang mass testing. Hindi nito pinatatag ang kakayahan ng ating mga ospital, at pinagkaitan pa ng suporta at proteksyon ang ating mga manggagawang pangkalusugan. Padalus-dalos ang pagtrato sa ating kabuhayan, at lubhang kulang ang ayudang ibinigay sa malawak na mamamayan sa gitna ng lockdown at pagtigil ng ekonomiya. Ni hindi nito magawang makausap ang sambayanan sa paraang malinaw at maayos.

Sa itinakbo ng nakaraang taon, malinaw sa atin na ang administrasyong Duterte ay walang kakayahan, ni taos na pagnanais, na masawata ang pandemya. Nais lamang nitong kumapit sa poder, magkamal ng yaman, at patahimikin tayong mga mamamayan. Sa ilalim ng rehimeng palpak at walang malasakit, papalalim at papalubha ang ating pagdarahop.

Kung nais nating ganap at tunay na malunasan ang pandemya, kung pinahahalagahan natin ang ating buhay at kinabukasan ng ating bansa, malinaw ang ating tungkulin ngayong taon: wakasan si Duterte at ang kanyang mga kasosyo sa rehimen ng dugo, dumi, at ginto. #

The fight between Human Rights Defenders and corporations enabled by the State is a battle between David and Goliath. They face multiple layers of attacks which often include legal action, death threats, and psychological violence as well as using disinformation against them to discredit and isolate them making them vulnerable at many levels.

SOS TO DSWD-7 AND PRO-7: UPHOLD THE COURT’S DECISION, RELEASE THE LUMAD CHILD TO HER FATHER

On March 4, 2021, Tatay Lope filed a writ for habeas corpus to claim her daughter, a Lumad child, from the custody of the Department of Social Welfare and Development Region VII (DSWD - RO7).

A week since then, the Cebu City Regional Trial Court Branch 20 released a final verdict, granting the Lumad child’s release from almost-a-month of separation from her hopeful father.

The Save Our Schools (SOS) team along with Tatay Lope immediately went to fetch the Lumad child a while ago in light of the ruling. The responding team presented the court order to authorities yet the Philippine National Police Region VII (PNP - RO7) blocked Tatay from reuniting with her daughter.

4 police cars, 1 SWAT car, 7 uniformed police men, 4 members of Task Force Kasaligan swiftly surrounded the vicinity, compelling the team to leave and threatening arrest.

As of this writing, the Lumad child has yet to be reunited with her father. Various groups and organizations continue to clamor for the Lumad child’s release from the illegal custody of authorities.

The SOS Network vehemently condemns the blatant disregard of DSWD - RO7 and the PNP - RO7 of the court’s ruling and the genuine interest of the child to reunite with her father.

Ironically, a supposedly independent body in the office of DSWD - RO7, whose mandate is to uplift the lives of the disadvantaged, is doing just the opposite. It placed itself under the decision and orders of the PNP - RO7, an institution indelibly marred with blood from its Lumad victims of state-sponsored arrests, bombings, and killings.

This proves that the DSWD is but an instrument of state attacks unto its constituents. Even during the court’s hearing on the case, it desperately attempted to assert its custody of the child via malicious claims against the child's father.

DSWD-RO7 regional director Rebecca Geamala and social worker Brenda Abilo alleged that the father was a neglectful parent to support their arguments. They insisted that the lack of the father’s “permanent” source of income challenges the fitness of the father as a parent. In an attempt to further brandish its claim, they horrendously claimed that the child’s liberty was not impinged, citing the “legitimacy” of the faux police and military raid inside Lumad Bakwit School Cebu.

If the PNP and DSWD are standing pat to their assertion that the raid was a “rescue operation”, why is that the Lumad child in custody was seen and heard crying: “Bakit ganito tay? Akala namin rescue, hindi ganito ang rescue.”

We demand the immediate release of the Lumad students unlawfully arrested and the detained by the DSWD and PNP! DSWD - RO7 must heed to the law and stay true to their mandate of serving the interests of children and their families!

Cagayan Valley: Corporate greed, militarization and red tagging of IP organization

Amidst the health crisis, the Canadian –Australian mining company – OceanaGold kept on operating despite its expired permit last June 2019.

A people’s barricade was set-up in by the Tuwali-Ifugao to stop the operation of OceanaGold mining. On April 6, 2020, a police force of 100 from Kasibu, Nueva Vizcaya, were reported escorting 3 oil tankers transporting fuel into the controversial copper-gold mine in Brgy Didipio. The police troop violently dispersed the barricade that led to the arrest of Rolando Pulido, chairperson of indigenous organization DESAMA. Mr. Pulido, who is now on bail was slapped with violation of RA 11332, or the guidelines of the ongoing Enhanced Community Quarantine and Disobedience to a Person in Authority also in RA 1332.

ELCAC and E-CLIP programs intensified

Anti-insurgency campaigns End Local Communist Armed Conflict (ELCAC) and the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) resurfaced and intensified in Cagayan and Isabela during the Covid-19 crisis. Cagayan’s Governor gave full support to Duterte’s P2 Million reward for those who will report commanders of the New People’s Army (NPA). Barangay officials were either threatened or bribed to report to the PNP and the AFP, members of peoples organizations entering Barangays. Photos of visitors were discreetly taken and submitted as “report”.
