Editorial: The Miss Universe

One of the first all women activity of the newly organized militant women’s group MAKIBAKA in 1970, was an organized nationwide protest of the Miss Universe pageant. Many thought it was just the Filipino’s part of a world trend or just a fad, it was not. It was a call of the rising women’s liberation movement, makibaka, huwag matakot!

As The Bamboos Sway: Yolanda, the singer

Since I met Yolanda ‘Yolly’ dela Torre in the late 1990’s and heard her sing, I have often wondered what would have happened to the likes of Nora Aunor, Vilma Santos and their later contemporaries if Yolly stayed in the Philippines with her then flourishing singing career.

Statements: Let peace based on justice reign in our land

The Philippine Ecumenical Peace Platform (PEPP) enjoins the Filipino people and the international community to support the forthcoming third round of formal peace talks between the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP). As we start the year, let us all proclaim: Let Peace Based on Justice Reign in Our Land!

Statements: Another senseless killing

We strongly condemn the murder of Mr. Mario Contaoi, an educator, radio commentator and environmental advocate. We grieve with his family, friends and colleagues. We are appalled that despite the promise of change by this administration, murder with impunity remains to be a trend. While the assailant’s motive(s) remains unclear, the authorities must not discount his previous stint as radio commentator and his sharp commentaries on environmental issues as possible reasons for his murder.

Weekly Reflections: Religious devotion for social transformation

January 9 is the Feast of the Black Nazarene, although liturgically speaking the image of the Christ carrying the cross is more fitted for the Holy Week rather than the Season of Epiphany. Msgr. Sabino A. Vengco, Jr. of the Loyola School of Theology explained that January 9 is actually the day when the image was transferred from the earthquake-destroyed church of the Recollects in Intramuros to the Minor Basilica in Quiapo, Manila. In fact, Fr. Vengco is suggesting that the religious festival should be transferred to the Lenten Season so that it would be in keeping with the Liturgical Calendar.
