Tribute to the Massacred Journalists in Maguindanao

This is a reprint of today's article of Patricia Evangelista of Philippine Daily Inquirer and Executive Producer of ANC's StoryLine.


Method To Madness
Carnage

By Patricia Evangelista
Philippine Daily Inquirer

MAGUINDANAO, Philippines—This is a story about death in a place they call the Promised Land, where the heat punches with a sweaty fist, and a crescent moon rises with the Christian sun.

It happened on a lonely hill in a quiet town, where every bridge is a checkpoint manned by young men in fatigues. Esmael Mangudadatu, Buluan vice mayor, threatened with violence, sending his wife Genalyn, his sister, his nieces and his lawyers to file his certificate of candidacy because he believed women would be safe. Esmael Mangudadatu, inviting a pack of journalists to cover the event, because he believed his family would be safe where the media were. Esmael Mangudadatu, answering the last phone call from a wife who told him they had been stopped by Datu Unsay Mayor Andal Ampatuan Jr.’s private army.

Witnesses say they heard the gunshots. “Ra-ta-ta-ta-tat,” says the barefoot man with the face browned by sun. He heard it, at ten in the morning. Ra-ta-ta-ta-tat. He says it did not last long.

A road, winding past clapboard carwashes and houses of crosshatched palm, bamboo fences trailing soft pink blossoms. A sky, blue, sweeping over sprawling green. A cliff-side, under a yellow sun. This is where they were found, men and women, Mangudadatu’s caravan of untouchables, bleeding into the dry earth, some still sitting inside the white vans with doors flung open. One by one, the others are dug out of a great gaping pit. Bodies, buried in tiers six deep, bloated huge and white, shirts browned by blood, pants bunched at the knees, faces like mashed clay. They unearth a UNTV van, a red Toyota Vios, a crumpled Tamaraw FX. The investigators offer what dignity they can. Newspapers are laid over faces, over crotches, over dirt-encrusted stomachs swollen to the size of overripe watermelons. Some of the dead once wrote for the papers covering their heads.

The flies flock over the bodies. A young man from UNTV stands over the six new corpses. He is looking for his friends, he says. When he finds them, he steps back and watches a drinking buddy wrapped in sheets of red plastic, secured by masking tape, hauled up on a stretcher. The smell of dead stretches down the hill. A backhoe sits at the bottom, one long arm stamped with “Province of Maguindanao.”

Witnesses say they saw armed men, more than 50, walking down the hill, off to the direction of Shariff Aguak, Maguindanao’s provincial capital—where the sprawling peach-and-pink mansions of Andal Ampatuan Sr. and his son Andal Jr. face each other on a street littered with soldiers, on the same street of the enormous peach-and-pink capitol building. It was the capitol where Presidential Adviser for Mindanao Jesus Dureza landed his two helicopters to pick up Andal Jr., the same Dureza who waited for Andal Jr. to “voluntarily come in for questioning.” Of the Ampatuans, Presidential Spokesperson Lorelei Fajardo says that “just because they’re in this situation doesn’t mean we will turn our backs on them,” as if this government has ever had any compunction about turning its back on allies. This is what an “appalled and outraged” president does when the last democratic institution is gunned down on a public road: she offers government helicopters and permits a suspect to ride a private plane, allows evidence to disappear while suspects twirl their guns, lets her executive secretary appeal to suspected murderers to “surrender to authorities” instead of insisting they be ripped out of their holes, and then she expects the nation to applaud her like her moronic deputies.

Fifty-seven (according to the Armed Forces of the Philippines) were murdered last Monday. Thirty of them belonged to the media, 30 men and women whose presence in this benighted country has become the one assurance that the worst will not happen. No guns will be drawn while a camera rolls, but even that safety is gone. Not once in the history of journalism has carnage like this happened to so many. There are no more rules, no lines left to cross. The government would like to give Andal Jr. his dignity, they want to make sure he is treated fairly, they trip over their own tangled lies for his sake. And yet there was no dignity left in the men and women found bloated and half-naked in Sitio Masalay, stripped of notebook and camera and wallet, stripped of face and name, until some unfortunate daughter recognizes Papa’s shirt or Mama’s pants.

Remember their names. Benjie Adolfo, Gold Star Daily. Henry Araneta, Radio dzRH. Mark Gilbert “Mac-Mac” Arriola, UNTV. Rubello Bataluna, Gold Star Daily. Arturo Betia, Periodico Ini. Romeo Jimmy Cabillo, Midland Review. Marites Cablitas, News Focus. Hannibal Cachuela, Punto News. John Caniban, Periodico Ini. Lea Dalmacio, Socsargen News. Noel Decina, Periodico Ini. Gina Dela Cruz, Saksi News, General Santos City. Eugene Dohillo, UNTV. Jhoy Duhay, Gold Star Daily. Santos Gatchalian, dxGO. Bienvenido Legarte Jr., Prontiera News. Lindo Lupogan, Mindanao Daily Gazette. Ernesto “Bart” Maravilla, Bombo Radyo. Rey Merisco, Periodico Ini, Koronadal City. Reynaldo “Bebot” Momay, Midland Review. Marife “Neneng” Montaño, Saksi News. Rosell Morales, News Focus. Victor Nuñez, UNTV. Ronnie Perante, Gold Star Daily. Joel Parcon, Prontiera News. Fernando “Rani” Razon, Periodico Ini. Alejandro “Bong” Reblando, Manila Bulletin. Napoleon Salaysay, Mindanao Gazette. Ian Subang, Socsargen Today. Andres “Andy” Teodoro, Central Mindanao Inquirer.

There were threats against the media in the days after the massacre. But on the day they ripped swollen bodies out of Ampatuan soil, there were photojournalists lining the crest of the cliff like an honor guard, long lenses glinting in the sun. There was a cameraman who stepped away from a tripod to wipe away tears, a veteran in an orange hat with an arm around an orphan. It was both tribute and promise.

This is what the men who fired those machine guns last Monday did not know: that there is no journalist today who will not stand for those who were lost. Remember what happened here, on a lonely hill in a quiet town, where a blue sky sweeps over sprawling green. Remember Ampatuan, and remember their names.

Continuing Maguindanao Massacre/ and GLORIA Watch



“I don’t think the President’s friendship with the Ampatuans will be severed,” Deputy Spokesperson Lorelei Fajardo said. “Just because they are in this situation doesn’t mean we will turn our backs on them.” As if that weren’t enough assurance, she added, “it doesn’t mean that they are no longer our friends, if ever they indeed committed the crime.” (from the Phil. Daily Inquirer)

Is this woman clueless, crazy or what? Or is Fajardo really being honest and is telling us what Gloria really feels?

The newspapers and TV stations have reported that finally, the almost 400 civilian volunteers/private army of the Ampatuans ha
ve been de-activated and their firearms seized. But what kind of firearms was the government able to retrieve? Where are the high-powered firearms? Di man lang nagtaka ang militar kung bakit eto iyong mga firearms. Parang iyong mga garand and springfield rifles na ginamit namin sa ROTC noong 70s pa ito.


Back to Gloria. It's also in the news that Lilia Pineda has confirmed that Gloria will be filing her candidacy for congresswoman of the 2nd district of Pampanga. Who's Lilia Pineda? (My God, what have you been jueteng for?). Here are some comments I also got from the news:

“It will be such a waste if the President withdraws from public service. She has the experience and has established connections abroad that can be used to benefit Pampanga,” Lilia Pineda said.

Speaker Prospero Nograles said President Arroyo’s decision to seek a congressional seat was widely expected. “She has made a decision and that was predictable. Going back to your roots,” he said.

"if she decides to run, it would be to serve the people, not protect herself,” said REMONDE referring to suspicions that bagging a congressional seat would make her immune from lawsuits that may arise after she steps down. (Oh Yeah? Face the mirror and repeat what you said.)Grabe na ito! What kind of person is GMA? Let's see on Monday, if indeed she'll file her COC.


(Quotes from the persons mentioned were taken from today's issue of Phil. Daily Inquirer).

MAGUINDANAO MASSACRE WATCH

Mayor Andal Ampatuan Jr. is now detained at the NBI headquarters in Metro Manila. This shouldn't stop us from hounding GLORIA. We are not assured if there will be a white wash of this case. Probably without the strong pressure from various groups in the Philippines and in the global community, the authorities would not have touched the Ampatuans. Andal wasn't even handcupped, only escorted by Dureza. And what's the drama that Dureza and Ampatuan are saying - that the chopper they were boarding were fired upon? Probably to fit into Andal's claim that the massacre was the work of the MILF.

Why only Andal Jr., what about the Sr.?

How did Gloria spend the National Day of Mourning? In fervent prayers? Like .....

GLORIA WAKE UP! DO SOMETHING!

Listen to the President's Men and Woman

(from the Phil.Daily Inquirer report of Christine Avendano)

They Might Fight Back - Raul Gonzalez, Presidential Legal Counsel
Secretary Raul Gonzalez, chief presidential legal counsel, cautioned the government against hastily arresting the Ampatuans in the absence of solid evidence.

“If we use the iron hand on them, they might fight back. We should take precaution. These are not ordinary people,” he said by phone.

“We’re guided by the rule of evidence, not by emotions. Suspicions, accusations are not synonymous with guilt,” he added.

Gonzalez said that the Maguindanao provincial government-owned backhoe found in the crime scene was a “circumstantial evidence” against the Ampatuans.

“But you can’t convict somebody with one circumstantial evidence,” said the former justice secretary.


People Should be Given Equal Protection of the Law - Exec Sec Ermita

Asked about the criticism, Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita told reporters that Mayor Ampatuan and his followers should turn themselves in for investigation.

“It definitely will help if those who feel that they are already being considered as suspect for them to turn themselves in and cooperate with the law enforcement agencies,” Ermita said in a briefing.

“To prove they’re innocent, they should give themselves up rather than go against the law by not turning themselves in,” he said, adding that this will help defuse the situation.

Ermita dismissed claims that the Ampatuan clan, which delivered votes for Ms Arroyo in the 2004 presidential vote, was “untouchable.”

“I don’t see why they should be considered untouchable. People should be given equal protection of the law,” he said.

Ermita said the public should await the action of Dureza’s team. He said the team would “identify those that will have to be summoned, or that will be subject of the order for them to be disarmed, to be taken into custody or against whom a warrant of arrest will be issued or charges will be filed.” (So not one of the Ampatuans has been summoned!)

No Evidence of Rape... no Beheading - Sec of Justice Devanadera (ex-future Supreme Court Justice, former mayor of the smallest town in Quezon)

Acting Justice Secretary Agnes Devanadera told reporters Wednesday after a visit to the troubled region that state lawyers and prosecutors were still gathering evidence.

“I ask for more time to evaluate (the evidence),” she said. “So far there’s no evidence of rape. There was also no beheading.” (o ano iyong pinagsasabi niyong gruesome o heinous, wala namang na-rape a)

"They (Ampatuans) committed to submit themselves to any investigation - Presidential Adviser Jesus Dureza (Instead of summons, it was Dureza who "visited" the Ampatuans.)

Dureza met with the Ampatuans in Shariff Aguak town in Maguindanao on Tuesday afternoon.

“They committed to submit themselves to any investigation,” Dureza told the Inquirer by phone.

The meeting, held at the Ampatuan residence in Shariff Aguak, was attended by Gov. Zaldy Ampatuan of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), his younger brother Datu Unsay Mayor Andal Jr. and the family patriarch, Governor Ampatuan.

But Dureza said he did not ask if indeed Mayor Ampatuan led the killers. “I went there to tell them about the creation of the crisis management committee, and about the investigation,” he said.

ARROYO IS BIDING FOR TIME. HILONG-TALILONG SIYA. HINDI MALAMAN KUNG PAANO SISIGURADUHIN NA HINDI MAGWAWALA ANG MGA AMPATUAN AT OUT OF THE BLUE, SABIHIN LAHAT ANG MGA PANDARAYA NILA NI ARROYO!

Greetings to October Birthday Celebrants


This greeting is late for one of the celebrants, just on time for another, and advance greetings for the rest.

In spite of the destruction brought about by typhoon Ondoy, let's take time out to greet our friends a happy birthday. May they continue to receive more blessings from the Lord.

I was able greet our Oct 2 celebrant last Friday. I sent him a text message, sabi ko masabaw an birthday niya because typhoon Pepeng was approaching the country then. Iyo daa, masabaw, dakol chaser, kulang sa pulutan. Nag-iinuman na palan.

by the way, the pictures were taken 43 pounds ago. Joke lang. Wag mapipikon. We need to lighten up a bit after a very depressing week, not only in the Philippines, but also in Indonesia and Samoa.

Happy birthday Adonis, Baby, Alan, and Men. Let's remember Tony, too on Oct 13

Paalam Tita Cory
























19


si Mikee Cojuangco jaworski
18

I wrote this blog yesterday afternoon but I again encountered problems with the server. I couldn’t post the blog. Yesterday was a very historical day. It was Tita Cory’s funeral and I’m proud to be one of the thousands of people who braved the intermittent but occasionally heavy rains and some flood waters and joined the procession. I didn’t however, march all the way until Manila Memorial Park, which took about eight hours. I walked from Manila Cathedral to Luneta, Roxas Boulevard, Quirino Avenue until Taft Avenue. I then stepped aside, watched the entire funeral march pass then took the LRT.

It had been raining most of the time since the wake of Tita Cory last Saturday until the burial yesterday. Fortunately, I went to La Salle Greenhills early Sunday morning when the queue wasn’t long and weather was fine. It took me only 20 minutes before I was able to view Tita Cory’s remains. Those who came in the evening had to wait for two to three hours, and when the body was brought to Manila Cathedral, the queue almost reached Plaza Lawton and many waited for four hours to get a few seconds glance at Tita Cory. But people didn’t mind. That’s how we loved our icon of democracy.

I went to Manila Cathedral before 9 am. Of course, I knew I’ll just be standing several meters away because the church was cordoned off for the family, friends and relatives and dignitaries. But I didn’t mind. There were many of us outside. It was reminiscent of Ninoy’s burial but with a difference. Just a little bit of history, Ninoy was buried on Aug 31, 1983. (That was my birthday). I was teaching in UST at that time, and I waited for Ninoy’s funeral cortege along Espana in front of UST. The people’s mood was different then. The atmosphere was that of protest and defiance. Now, it’s a mixture of sadness and joy, and an expression of gratitude for everything that Tita Cory has done for the nation.

As we stood there in the rain (kantyawan pag may nagbubukas ng payong). People who didn’t know each other were recalling their experiences in EDSA I and before that, Ninoy’s assassination. Others who joined our conversation said they were still small children at that time. It was heartwarming to see families who came with small children in spite of the crowd and the rains.

We could hear the proceedings inside because of the sound system but there was no vidi wall on our side. When Lea Salonga sang Bayan Ko, people sang with her while raising their fists. When finally, the coffin was brought out, people started chanting Cory, Cory, and flashed the Laban sign. It’s like re-living the EDSA experience. We’re all hoping that this renewed nationalism and sense of unity will not die down. Sana hindi “ningas cogon”.

On a lighter note, when Kris Aquino during her long thank you speech, asked, pano daw ba sila makakapagpasalamat sa mga tao for all the outpouring of love and sympathy, may nag-comment, “magpakabait ka lang, ok na sa amin”. Then I received a text message from a friend, saying that he didn’t come to the funeral anymore because he knew there would be a lot of people and it would be difficult to move around. Hintayin na lang daw niya libing ni Gloria, siguradong maluwag daw, konti ang tao. That was a mean joke. Somebody also said, sana bukas may pirated DVD copy na sa Quiapo nang buong coverage from the wake to the burial, gaya daw ng mga laban ni Pacquiao.

I am sharing with you some pictures I took. Sorry for the low resolution. I just used my cell phone. (I have yet to replace my camera with a new one.)

Tita Cory must be happy now with God, Ninoy, and Mama Mary, and she must have been gratified seeing all the people who turned out to send her off.

Thank you Tita Cory for everything that you have done for the nation. You made us proud to be Filipinos.

We Join the Nation in Mourning for the Death of Cory Aquino


hello everyone, this is not mean to cast a shadow of tears on fechie's happy natal day, august 1. but as fate would have it, this happens to be a sad day for the Philippines. madame ex-pres cory aquino passed away due to colon cancer complication..after months of painful struggle. most of us know what she had done and contributed to the country, so there's not much need to expound. i am not active or involved in politics but during the rallies after she lost the elections against marcos, we cannot help but join the many familities who gathered and supported her protest calls against the dictatorship, amidst yellow ribbons, shirts and flags at the rizal park. it was perhaps one of the rare instances when even the most apolitical person on earth would be glad and be proud to participate. she will be missed not only by many of us filipinos, but all democracy loving people of the world. up to the very end, she championed and was a living icon of democracy and freedom. she may have left for good but her legacy will remain for us and the whole world to remember and cherish.. may she rest in peace..

bert

--------------

Although this event is something already expected and perhaps wished for in order to spare Tita Cory from further suffering, the news that came this morning is still a very sad news. Let's all pray for her eternal rest and for the family to accept God's wish. Thank you Tita Cory for all that you have done and all that you have symbolized... and thank God for sharing you with us.

Toti

--------------------
We are all in mourning for her sudden and untimely demise... May her legacy for the Pilipinos and the democratic principles lives on. May she rest in eternal peace.....
Huuuuuuuggggssss

I could not cloud the many memories and great achievements of our past pres. cory. She was a great person too. Her legacy will be long remembered. May she rest in peace. Along with my prayers, the rest of the world will do as well.

Fechie (Fe) Alarcon


-------------

I join you all in your mourning. During the '86 revolution, I was already here in the US. I had opportunities to attend some organizational meetings of the Ninoy Aquino Movement when I was still in Chicago.

I hope that this time, Filipinos will realize that no matter how much you profess your love for your country, if you don't have the right resolve to seek for changes because it would be inconvenient and would disrupt the comfort of your daily living (then nothing would happen). Honestly, I did not participate in the NAM because I felt then that if I truly wanted to join any movement seeking changes in the Philippines, I should be there just like those courageous Filipinos sacrificing everything they have. The choice of Ninoy - convenient life in Boston or death... The same reason why everyone is mourning the passing away of Cory, because she too sacrificed a lot because of her love for the country.

I left the Philippines, but I knew that in a very small way, I was part of the changes that Cory achieved, I can proudly say that I was active during the FQS, not only during rallies, but all those dangerous political teach-INS I did particularly in the barrios of Marilao, Bulacan (Loma de Gato and Prenza), making my entire clan worry for my safety. The wheel of the '86 revolution, we started it rolling and hopefully it will continuously roll even now that Cory is gone.

Goodbye Michael

Michael Jackson's death was the biggest news last Friday. I came back to the hotel in the evening and that was the shocking news that greeted me when I tuned in to BBC News (there's no CNN channel in my hotel). In spite of his popularity and wealth (and unfortunately debts towards the end), he must be one of the loneliest persons in the world. Let's just hope and pray that he's finally home and can truly rest in peace.

I had the chance to watch Michael Jackson as a kid, when the Jackson 5 performed in the Folk Arts theatre sometime in the mid-70s. It was Feb 14 but I can't recall if it was 1975 or 76. He wasn't 'white' then.

I have several favorite MJ songs, among which are Heal the World, Ben (I saw the movie, daga pala si Ben), We are the World, I'll be There, She's Out of My Life, etc.) I am posting the lyrics of HEAL THE WORLD, and the audio of the song from the You Tube. Hope you like it.

Regards to you all, it's my third Sunday now here in Indonesia. I hope to be able to go back to Manila on the week of July 6. See you when we meet with Lyn, there.

spoken:
Think about the generations and to say we want to make it a better
world for our children and our children's children. So that they know
it's a better world for them; and think if they can make it a better
place.


There's a place in your heart
And I know that it is love
And this place could be much
Brighter than tomorrow.
And if you really try
You'll find there's no need to cry
In this place you'll feel
There's no hurt or sorrow.
There are ways to get there
If you care enough for the living
Make a little space, make a better place.

Chorus:
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me and the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for
You and for me.


If you want to know why
There's a love that cannot lie
Love is strong
It only cares for joyful giving.
If we try we shall see
In this bliss we cannot feel
Fear or dread
We stop existing and start living
Then it feels that always
Love's enough for us growing
Make a better world, make a better world.

Chorus:
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me and the entire human race.
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for
You and for me.

Bridge:
And the dream we would conceived in
Will reveal a joyful face
And the world we once believed in
Will shine again in grace
Then why do we keep strangling life
Wound this earth, crucify it's soul
Though it's plain to see, this world is heavenly
Be God's glow.

A Must See!

This is very well done!

Below is a link to one of the best pieces of sound engineering work. It's a composite audio/video of song whereby additional tracks were laid in by different singers and musicians from different places around the world. The finished product is tremendous! The song itself is that classic standard "Stand By Me" originally released in 1955 by The Staple Singers and released again in 1961 by the Drifters.. So turn up the speaker volume and Click Here.
