DAVAO CITY, Philippines (Mindanao Examiner / Mar. 31, 2011) – A nationwide transport strike on Thursday paralyzed many parts of the Philippines as bus and jeepney drivers protest continued hike in oil prices and demanded Manila for a new round of fare increase and government subsidy.

The militant Bagong Alyansang Makabayan in Southern Mindanao has declared victory claiming the public valiantly expressed their voice against the unbridled exploitation of oil companies by way of a nationwide transport strike.

A measly 5% of Davao City’s estimated 10,000 public utility jeepneys were plying the main thoroughfares. “This is a display of the people’s determination and resolve to take a stand against their continued exploitation and misery wrought by the oil cartels’ complete control of the oil industry,” said Franchie Buhayan, the group’s regional head.

Buhayan said students, teachers, and women also took to the streets and joined the protesting drivers. They raised placards and distributed leaflets. Massed up in various ’persuasion points’ also were the peasants, workers and the urban poor, who took turns at making the public understand the reasons why they are on the streets.

Members of religious organizations, professionals and nongovernmental organizations also joined them.

“That these were all happening despite threats coming from the government agencies and the elite who peddled much pessimism against the strike as an effective means of people’s expression of their legitimate demands, is a testament, that the people’s resolve have prevailed,” Buhayan said.

Bayan also condemned police harassment after a man in civilian clothes who came from inside a police station took pictures of the protesters.

It also accused the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board of planning to issue franchises to bus operators to replace the jeepneys in Davao City.

Pump prices have increased 10 times since early this year. Fuel prices, Buhayan said, are overpriced by as much as P6.72 per liter.

“At this rate, it is taking away almost P4,368 a month from a PUJ driver’s take home pay. The inflationary effects of oil overpricing by the Big 3 cartel - Caltex, Shell and Petron - which has been condoned by the present Aquino administration, has already taken unimaginable toll on the lives of the people. More Filipinos are going hungry and homeless.”

“The people have all the just cause to declare a strike. It is such a shame that Aquino can still talk in defense of these oil companies rather than protecting the people,” Buhayan said.

In Zamboanga City, jeepney drivers also staged a strike and held a protest in downtown area where members and supporters of Akbayan party-list joined them.

The protesters were demanding fresh round of fare increase and oil subsidy from Manila and government officials have agreed to give one month gas subsidy only. (With reports from Karlos Manlupig and Neil Dalena)

ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines (Mindanao Examiner / Mar. 31, 2011) – Three young men were brutally killed and their bodies dumped in an irrigation canal on a farming village in Zamboanga City in the southern Philippines.

Civilians discovered the bodies – their hands tied behind the back and head covered with packing tape - in the village of Talabaan on Wednesday.

Police said the bodies bore hack wounds when they found them still covered on hays to hide the grizzly murder and victims of summary executions.

No group claimed responsibility for the killings, but villagers claimed to have seen a white van late on Tuesday near where the bodies had been found.

The three victims were identified as Jeric Escover, 12; Elby Dablo, 16; and Carlo Catalan, 13.

Reacting to the news of the murders, peace advocate Edgar Araojo said: “There is really a breakdown in the peace and order in Zamboanga City.”

The local police chief, Senior Superintendent Edwin de Ocampo, has ordered an investigation into the murders. He said two of the three victims were involved in petty crimes and could be members of a robbery gang.

Extrajudicial killings are not uncommon in Zamboanga City where cadavers believed to be victims of summary executions had been discovered in remote villages in the past.

In 2009, a 14-year old boy, Benjamin Mariga, was brutally murdered in Zamboanga City after he was arrested along with several street children accused of robbery.

The latest killings occurred just several weeks after government officials announced that a regional council for the protection of children will be organized soon in an effort to keep minors away from danger, abuse and maltreatment, especially in environment unmindful of their rights.

Many poor children in Zamboanga City have abandoned their studies in exchange for begging in the streets. They resort to working dangerous jobs to help their family earn money to buy food.

In the city’s garbage dumpsite in Lumbangan village, many children, some of them as young as four-years old, are already collecting scraps unmindful of the filthy environment and hazards to their health, just to help their parents earn a living.

Many street children are also addicted to chemical solvents and had been involved in petty crimes. (Mindanao Examiner)

Operasyon kontra Sayyaf patuloy

ZAMBOANGA CITY (Mindanao Examiner / Mar. 31, 2011) – Walang tigil ang operasyon ng militar sa lalawigan ng Sulu na kung saan ay tatlong Abu Sayyaf umano ang napatay ng mga sundalo sa bayan ng Patikul.

Sinabi kahapon sa Abante ni Lt. Col. Randolph Cabangbang, ang spokesman ng Western Mindanao Command, ay target umano ng mga tropa na madakip ang mga lider ng teroristang grupo sa naturang lalawigan.

Bagamat walang nabawing bangkay sa labanan na naganap kamakalawa sa Patikul ay sinabi ni Cabangbang na tatlo ang nasawi sa sagupaan. Nakasagupa ng mga marines ang grupo ni Abu Sayyaf commander Jamiri Jawari na pinaniniwalaang siyang may bihag sa tatlong mangingisdang dinukot sa karagatan ng Sulu Archipelago nuong Marso 19.

Nabawi kasi umano ng mga sundalo ang seaman book ni Renato Panisales, isa sa mga dinukot na mangingisda. Ngunit wala pa rin balita sa mga bihag maliban lamang na direktang nakikipagnegosasyon umano ang mga kidnappers sa pamilya at empleyado ng tatlo.

Nabatid na P10 milyon ransom ang hinihingi ng Abu Sayyaf kapalit ng buhay ng mga bihag. (Mindanao Examiner)

Troops kill 3 Sayyaf gunmen in Philippine clash

ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines (Mindanao Examiner / Mar. 30, 2011) – Three Abu Sayyaf gunmen were killed in a clash Wednesday in the southern Philippine province where security forces are battling the homegrown terror group.

Officials said the fighting erupted in Patikul town where marine soldiers were searching for three fishermen kidnapped by gunmen on March 19.

“The firefight lasted almost 50 minutes and three Abu Sayyaf are killed in the clash,” Army Lieutenant Colonel Randolph Cabangbang, a spokesman for the Western Mindanao Command, told the Mindanao Examiner.

Cabangbang said there were no reports of casualties on the military side and that troops were pursuing the militants led by an Abu Sayyaf sub-leader Jamiri Jawari.

It was not immediately known if Jamiri was among the dead or wounded in the clash.

He said troops had recovered the seaman book of Renato Panisales, one of the three seized fishermen, but there were no signs of any of the hostages.

But the recovery of the seaman book bolstered suspicion by the military that the trio was kidnapped by the Abu Sayyaf.

Police earlier said the fishermen were kidnapped by pirates off Sulu Archipelago, a chain of islands between Zamboanga City and Sabah in the southwestern part of the country.

The militant group with links to Jemaah Islamiya is reportedly negotiating with the employer of the fishermen in Zamboanga City and that the kidnappers have demanded P10 million ransoms in exchange for the safe release of the three hostages. (Mindanao Examiner)

Kilabot na JI bomber, nakatakas sa Pinas pero huli sa Pakistan!

Ang composite computer image ni Umar Patek na nadakip sa Pakistan matapos na makatakas mula sa Pilipinas.

ZAMBOANGA CITY (Mindanao Examiner / Mar. 29, 2011) – Nadakip na rin sa wakas ang kilabot na Jemaah Islamiya bomber na si Umar Patek sa bansang Pakistan matapos na tumakas ito mula sa lalawigan ng Tawi-Tawi sa katimugan ng Mindanao.

Hindi naman mabatid agad ang lugar na kung saan nadakip si Patek, subalit Kinumpirma naman ito ng mga intelligence officials sa Indonesia na kung saan ay sabit ito sa madugong pambobomba sa Bali nuong 2002 na ikinamatay ng 202 katao, karamihan ay mga dayuhan mula sa Australia.

Huling nakita sa Tawi-Tawi province si Patek, 40, nuong nakaraang Nobyembre lamang at sa kabila ng matinding paghahanap sa kanya ay nakatakas pa ito Patungong Pakistan at hinihinalang sa Malaysia pa ito nagdaan sa kanyang pagpuga.

May reward na $1 milyon si Patek mula Estados Unidos mahuli man buhay o patay at ito rin ang umano’y nagtutulak sa maraming Muslim sa Tawi-Tawi - sibilyan man o militar o pulis – sa paghahanap sa kanya.

Ayon sa mga ulat ay isang video ang ipinasa ng Institute for Peace, Violence and Terrorism Research sa television giant ABS-CBN at doon makikita si Umar Patek, 40, na may bitbit na armas.

Wanted rin si Patek ng pamahalaan dahil sa mga kinasasangkutan nitong mga kaso at pinaghahanap rin ng Estados Unidos at Australia. Naunang inulat ng militar na napatay nito si Patek, alias Umar Kecil, nuong 2006, ngunit binawi rin ito at sinabing ang dayuhan ang siyang nagtuturo sa Abu Sayyaf na gumawa ng mga bomba.

Ang Abu Sayyaf ang pinaniniwalaang nagbibigay ng proteksyon sa terorista.
Maging ang Australia ay nagsabing nasa pangangalaga ng Abu Sayyaf si Patek na tauhan ng napatay na Indonesian bomber na si Dulmatin – parehong tumakas patungo sa Mindanao ang dalawa matapos ng Bali bombing at ito rin ang dahilan kung bakit nagbuhos ng maraming puwersa ng Estados Unidos sa Sulu at Tawi-Tawi.

Sinabi pa ng Australia na may collusion sa pagitan ng Abu Sayyaf at Moro Islamic Liberation Front at Jemaah Islamiya base na rin sa mga nakuwang dokumento sa kampo ng Abu Sayyaf sa katimugan. Nagtuturo umano ang mga Jemaah Islamiya ng paggawa ng bomba sa dalawang rebeldeng grupo kapalit ng armas at proteksyon.

Naunang itinanggi ng MILF, na nakikibaka para sa kapakalan ng mga Muslim, na may koneksyon ito sa Abu Sayyaf at Jemaah Islamiya.

Idinagdag rin ng Australia na nasa pangangalaga rin ng Abu Sayyaf ang isa pang Jemaah Islamiya bomber na si Marwan na nagtago sa Pilipinas nuong 2007. At sina Patek at Marwan ay may kabuuang rewards $6 milyon.

Buko sa dalawa ay inamin rin ng Western Mindanao Command na nasa rehiyon rin sina Jemaah Islamiya militants Mauiya at Quayem at nasa grupo ng Abu Sayyaf. Sabit rin si Mauiya sa pagdukot sa tatlong international Red Cross members sa bansa nuong nakaraang taon. (Mindanao Examiner)

A ‘gentleman farmer’ visits Canatuan in Zamboanga del Norte

Rey and Merlou Quisumbing (3rd and 2nd from left, respectively) gifted Subanon tribal chief, Timuay Jose Anoy with coffee tree seedlings after their meeting. Also present were TVIRD Community Relations and Development Office personnel.

ZAMBOANGA DEL NORTE, Philippines - Rey Quisumbing is an agri-entrepreneur from Zamboanga del Sur. He refers to himself as a “gentleman farmer” and signs agricultural development proposals with this as his title.

He has made a name in the Zamboanga Peninsula region in Southern Philippines for the success of his farm projects, particularly the Sayao Farms in Kumalarang town where, together with his wife Merlou, they developed a model sustainable farm.

The couple likewise operates the “Kainan sa Balsa”, literally a floating restaurant that also serves as a showcase of their farm produce. They grow vegetables, fruits and fish in their farm situated along the Zamboanga del Sur-Zamboanga Sibugay national highway. This is why they rarely find a need to go to the market and buy ingredients for the dishes they serve in their restaurant.

Aside from being entrepreneurs, the couple also shares a mission of encouraging other people, especially those referred to as “marginalized”, to improve their lives through agribusiness. And this is what they intend to share with the Subanon indigenous people of Canatuan, hosts of TVI Resource Development Phils. Inc. (TVIRD)’s copper-zinc mine in the mountains of Siocon, Zamboanga del Norte.

The Quisumbings recently visited the Canatuan mine to meet with tribal leaders and to discuss the feasibility of developing coffee plantations in the Subanon ancestral domain. During the visit, they met with Timuay Jose “Boy” Anoy, the tribal chieftain and administrator of the Certificate of Ancestral Domain Title (CADT) of Siocon.

“I am so happy that my dream of developing a coffee plantation in our ancestral land will finally be realized. I have long wanted to start this project but our tribe lacks the technical capabilities,” an elated Timuay Anoy said after meeting with the couple. “This coffee project will be a good addition to the existing agricultural development projects that our tribe has started with the help of the company’s (TVIRD) Sustainable Development Management Program (SDMP),” he added, referring to the rubber and abaca plantations the Subanons have already started in the area.

Rey shared to the Subanon chief and to the TVIRD agriculturists who joined the meeting the income opportunities in coffee farming. He said that the Philippines’ annual demand for coffee has reached 62,000 metric tons while production in the county is pegged at only 24,000 metric tons. “The demand gap for coffee, amounting to 38,000 metric tons, is right now being imported from other countries such as Thailand and Vietnam,” Rey explained. “These countries learned coffee farming from the Philippine. There is a big opportunity for the Subanons of Canatuan to share a big chunk of this supply gap by intercropping coffee with other suitable plants in the area.”

Carlos Tuerco, a TVIRD senior agriculturist, said that the company will assist the farmers in the CADT and in neighboring impact communities by enabling them to acquire the new coffee farming technology. “We would like to start training our farmers belonging to the four farming clusters inside the ancestral domain and eventually include those from the company’s impact communities,” Tuerco added. “Our objective is to provide these people with the technology and knowledge that will enable them to sustain the development of the area even after we close the mine in the near future.”

After the visit, a series of training programs will be scheduled this year to benefit the various farmer groups in the area. Timuay Anoy has expressed interest in immediately starting the development of coffee plantations in areas he personally identified. “I would like our tribe to plant coffee near the forested areas and near the river,” he averred. I” believe that if we do these, we will not only be realizing sustainable income from coffee farming but will likewise protect our forests and river which are both very important elements of our life as Subanons.”

The introduction of coffee farming technology has been identified as one of the key capacity building activities under the company’s SDMP for 2011. The program, administered by the company through its Community Relations and Development Office will, on a quarterly basis, train a farmer cluster to plant coffee and develop nurseries of coffee seedlings as a source of steady supply for at least 16 hectares of land aside from those identified by the Subanon tribe.

Quake hits Mindanao

ILIGAN CITY, Philippines (Mindanao Examiner / Mar. 28, 2011) – A moderate quake shook parts of the southern Philippine island of Mindanao on Monday, but there have been no reports of injuries or damage to structure.

The US Geological Survey said the quake was located 55 kilometers from Butuan and Cagayan de Oro cities in the northern part of the island.

It said the magnitude 4.5 quake was traced about 37.1 kilometers deep and struck at around 1:30 p.m. at the epicenter. (Mindanao Examiner)

Dapitan Folks Doing 'Miracles'

DAPITAN CITY, Philippines - The people of Dapitan City and Zamboanga del Norte provinces are performing a miracle! This was the pronouncement made by Department of Education Secretary Armin Luistro in front of a throng of well-wishers, led by Governor Rolando Yebes and Palaro Executive Committee Chairman Romeo “Nonong” Jalosjos, during his arrival here for an ocular inspection of the facilities for the May 8-14 Palarong Pambansa.

After making an inspection of all the sports facilities right at the main venue for this national sports tournament, Luistro officially declared that the Palarong Pambansa be held in Dapitan. His declaration met cheers among city and provincial officials.

“I think in your midst, I think I can make the quiet announcement that the Palarong Pambansa will be held in Dapitan City,” Luistro said.

Luistro said that this was his first visit to the would-be Palaro site and the second time for his Assistant Secretary Tonisito Umali.

“In the car on our way back from visiting the site, I asked Assistant Secretary Tony what he saw today compared to when he arrived here at first months ago. And our consensus is that the City of Dapitan, with the help of the provincial government and the people of Zamboanga del Norte, created a miracle. The miracle is not yet for public viewing, because it is still in its maiden stage and it will only be unveiled during the Palaro,” Luistro said.

He said that what impressed him even more of the whole situation, and which has further galvanized his resolve to host the Palaro here, is the support given by the government, specifically the Dapitan City and Zamboanga del Norte government to the activity.

“I say that come hell or high water, the Palaro will be staged here because as far as I can see, I think we are confident that everything is put in place. What I think worked is that the support was overwhelming. This Palaro is not just a project of the governor, or the congressman, or the city mayor. This is a project, a source of pride and excitement for all the people of Zanorte,” Luistro said. (Franklin Gumapon)

Gunmen free kidnapped Muslim couple in Philippines

ILIGAN CITY, Philippines (Mindanao Examiner / Mar. 22, 2011) – Gunmen have freed a Muslim couple they kidnapped in the southern Philippine province of Lanao del Sur, army officials said on Monday.

Officials said the duo was released over the weekend without ransom after military and police authorities sent warning of an impending operation to free the hostages - Akmad Sangka Datumanong, village chieftain of Dadu in Lanao del Sur’s Mulondo town; and his wife Baira.

The two were kidnapped on March 24 in the village of Kalanganan in Pantar town and the gunmen originally demanded P1.2 million from their family in exchange for their freedom.

Security forces have moved near the gang’s hideout when the kidnappers released the hostages and fled from the area.

“Reconnaissance team were given information by residents in the village of Mamaan in Piagapo town and revealed about the presence of the kidnapped victims, and we have warned the kidnappers to release the two hostages and they were freed unharmed,” said Colonel Daniel Lucero, commander of the 103rd Infantry Brigade.

Lucero said the duo was kidnapped to force them to pay their debts to the gang’s leader. “It was revealed that the victims have unpaid debts to their abductors,” he said. (Mindanao Examiner)

DENR slaps mining firm with sanction in Zambo town

ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines (Mindanao Examiner / Mar. 22, 2011) – Philippine environment officials have ordered a mining firm to stop all its activities in Zamboanga del Sur after it failed to comply with government requirements.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources’ Mines and Geosciences Bureau in Western Mindanao also issued a "cease and desist order" against the Lupa Pigigetawan Mining Company Incorporated after it encroached in areas where other mining companies are operating.

Officials said the mining firm – which is claiming to represent Subanon indigenous people of Bayog town in Zamboanga del Sur province - was ordered to stop all its mineral exploration activities.

One mining firm, Bayog 9 Metals Corporation, also complained that Lupa Pigigetawan Mining Company Incorporated encroached inside their mine property and had began drilling activities. And the firm’s security guards, mostly armed with AK-47 assault rifles, allegedly prevented Bayog 9 employees from entering its mining site.

The Mines and Geosciences Bureau said a recent survey shows that permitted area issued to Lupa Pigigetawan Mining Company Incorporated also falls within the following mining rights Peng Cheng Mining Corporation, Greater Asia Mining and Development Corporation, Richgate Realtty and Devlopment Corporation, Cherill Pastoriza, Omega 9 Mining Corporation, TVI Mineral Processing Incorporated, 168 Ferrum Pacific Mining Corporation and Mindanao Mining and Mineral Resources Corporation.

Bayog town is rich in iron ore and gold deposits.

Subanon villagers said the Lupa Pigigetawan Company also employs heavily armed security force whose agency is reportedly owned by former police and military generals.

Regional Director Alberto Johann Jacildo, of the Mines and Geosciences Bureau, said Lupa Pigigetawan Mining Company “failed to comply with other mandatory and procedural requirements in order to carry out lawful mining activities.”

Jacildo said that after careful verification, they found out that the mining company “did encroach and perform mining exploratory works on the area of Bayog 9.”

Raul Calumpang, now the acting Mines and Geosciences Bureau, said they will form a team to investigate reports that Lupa Pigigetawan Mining Company has violated the government's cease and desist order.

"We have received reports that despite the cease and desist order, the Lupa Pigigetawan Mining Company continued on with their exploration activities in Bayog town," he said.

He said Jadilco is on an official leave and would report back to work soon. But he assured that the Mines and Geosciences Bureau would act on the complaints against Lupa Pigigetawan Mining Company.

"They could lose their permit if the reports are true. We will investigate these reports," Calumpang said.

Village officials of Conacon, the host community where the Lupa Pigigetawan Mining Company has been conducting illegal activities, also issued a resolution declaring the company’s security agency, A-Y 76 Security Specialists Inc., as "persona non grata."

The resolution alleged that the agency’s heavily armed security personnel have set up an illegal boom and barrier on a public road and prevented village officials from accessing the area.

The resolution added that the security guards, “with finger on the trigger of their AK-47 caliber guns,” have caused people in the community “to worry and be afraid”.

Other sources also said that even Bayog town Mayor Jun Babasa was, at one point, allegedly barred by the security guards and company officials from inspecting the area.

Lupa Pigigetawan Mining Company insisted that its activities in Bayog town are authorized under a so-called Special Ore Extraction Permit signed by former Department of Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Jose Atienza a few days before he vacated his post in 2009.

The Special Ore Extraction Permit, however, states that the “mining operation authorized under this Permit shall not be undertaken in areas covered by valid and existing mining contracts and permits of other parties concerned.”

“Mining, environmental, and other relevant rules and regulations shall be complied with. Failure to comply with the foregoing and/or with the terms and conditions of this Permit shall give cause for its revocation.”

Sources from the Environmental Management Bureau said that, apart from encroaching within Bayog 9’s exploration area, Lupa Pigigetawan Mining Company has a standing violation for conducting mining activities without an Environmental Compliance Certificate, a critical pre-requisite for all legal mining operations.

In the Special Ore Extraction Permit, Lupa Pigigetawan Mining Company claims to be a representative of the Subanons of Bayog. But other sources said the firm’s president, Absalon Alcorin, Jr., hails from Davao and that two signatory witnesses of the permit, Gualberto Padilla and Rosemary Garrido, are also from Cebu.

Securities and Exchange Commission records show that Lupa Pigigetawan Mining Company was incorporated in Cebu, and that only two of its nine incorporators, Mitubusan Casiano Edal and Timuay Alfredo Dingal, are Subanons.

It was also discovered that several Chinese engineers are working for Lupa Pigigetawan Mining Company in Bayog town, but they have failed to present any documents or permits allowing them to legally work there. One report said the foreigners were believed connected with Hua Qiao Mining Company and that one of them identified himself to environment officials as Ma Zhe Zheng.

Lawyer Deonhar Ceniza, Zamboanga del Sur’s Environment and Natural Resources Officer, said they have also received similar complaints against the mining firm and is closely working with police authorities to stop the illegal operation of the Lupa Pigigetawan Mining Company.

“We are working closely with the Mines and Geosciences Bureau and the police authorities to implement the (cease and desist) order of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources,” he said.

He said the mining firm has no environmental compliance certificate to operate in Zamboanga del Sur. “There are a lot of reported violations and these have been well documented,” he said. (Mindanao Examiner)
