Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Zarate said a few days ago, “It would be best for the DND and the AFP to concentrate on the defense of the Philippines from China and the US that are now increasing their military activities in our territories instead of trying to sabotage the peace talks that can pave the way for a just and lasting peace and uplift the lives of majority of Filipinos.”
I read in the Sunday paper that there is a fairly recent movie out there on martial law. It was screened in a few commercial establishments in late May, and is directed by Lav Diaz. I have not seen the film but I encourage those who will have access to it to do so. In the tragedy of our times, I feel that it is important for entertainment to mirror social realities to motivate the people into action and resist injustice. The film is aptly entitled Panahon ng Halimaw. I heard some establishments refused to have it shown for political reasons.

We welcome the recent announcement of the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) on the resumption of the formal peace negotiations before the end of June. Both panels also deserve recognition for their fortitude to iron-out issues stalling the negotiations during the back-channel talks.
The Cordillera Peoples Alliance is one with the Benguet Peace and Order Council (PPOC) in denouncing the deceitful recruitment activities by the mercenary group Cordillera Peoples Liberation Army-Cordillera Bodong Administration (CPLA-CBA) in the province. CPLA is known for its notorious track record of human rights violations in the region.
Five months since the Duterte administration implemented the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Law, its effects have started trickling down to the everyday lives of thousands of workers and people from different sectors.
The Third Sunday of June is celebrated in our country as Father’s Day. Other countries, however, celebrate Father’s Day on different dates, which would remind us that remembering our fathers should not be once a year only, but rather throughout the whole year, every moment of our lives.
