Kape, Ala una ng madaling araw, at ilang alaala ng katatapos lang na elektoral na kampanya

Isang mainit na kape sa kalagitnaan ng madaling araw dito sa aming bahay. Pagkatapos ng matagal na panahon ay ngayon ko lang ulit naranasan ito.

Kung itatanong kung bakit ngayon lang ulit ay kailangang sariwain ko ang mga naganap nitong mga nakaraang buwan. Kung saan para sakin na unang beses na sumabak sa elektoral na kampanya, ay masasabi kong naging mahirap at masalimuot ng ginawa naming pangangampanya; While at the same time masasabi ko ring naging napakasaya din naming lahat sa gitna ng hirap at salimuot na dala ng elektoral na kampanya.

Mahirap at masalimuot dahil napakarami kaming bagay na isinakripisyo para lamang makapag kampanya ng puspusan. Nandyan, pangunahin, ang pansamantalang pag alis muna namin sa sari-sarili naming mga tahanan para sumentro sa HQ ng Kabataan Partylist sa Kamuning. Nangahulugan ito ng pansamantala naming pagkakalayo sa aming mga pamilya, pero ang dinatnan naman namin sa HQ ay matatawag ding isang pamilya : isang napakalaki at masayang pamilya na nabubuhay sa konsepto ng kolektibong pamumuhay. Sa pamamalagi ko sa HQ ng mahigit isang buwan ay mas lalo kong nakilala ang mga katulad kong aktibista na palagi ko lang dati nakikita sa mob.

At syempre, mas lalo ko ring nakilala ang mga kolektib ko. Hindi kalakihan ang bilang namin, pero kahit na manipis kami, masasabi ko namang sa paglahok namin sa eleksyong ito ay ibinigay naman namin ang aming makakaya. Although may mga pagkakataong di nagkakaintindihan, mas nanaig padin ang aming kolektibong hangarin na ipanalo ang ating Partylist at dalawang senatoriable.

Bukod sa pansamantalang pag alis sa sarili naming mga tahanan; Kinailangan din naming mag adjust para sumabay o sumalubong sa masikhay na pangangampanya. Isa sa mga pinaka hindi ko malilimutan ay ang kada gabing OD (Oplan Dikit). Kung saan halos nilibot na namin ang lahat ng parte ng Maynila(minsan labas pa) para magdikit ng poster ng KPL at nila LM at SO. Madalas ay nagsisimula ang OD ng madaling araw na at natatapos naman ng bukang liwayway na.

Sa mga oras na to, isa ang OD sa pinaka namimiss ko(although noong mga panahong nag OOD kami ay hindi ko naisip na mami miss ko sya). Ang amoy ng gawgaw, ang mga walis at roller, ang poster ng Kabataan at ni Satur at Liza, at syempre pa, ang bagsik ng liquid sosa na minsan nang sumunog sa kanang palad ko. Napaka deserving at worthy din ng meryenda kada tapos ng OD : tasty bread at mayonaise na may kaparehang kape o kaya nama’y softdrinks. Pagkatapos na pagkatapos na kumain ay diretso tulod na. Ang iba nga minsan, sa sobrang pagod ay hindi na inaatubiling kumain, diretso tulog nalang dahil sa pagod.

Bukod sa OD’s, nariyan rin ang pangunahing sangkap para manalo sa kampanya. Ito ay ang paglubog sa mga komunidad para ikampanya at ipropaganda ang ating PL at dalawang senatoriable. matyagang pagpapaliwanag sa masa ng kahalagahan ng pagboto sa ating mga progresibong kandidato. Kahit pa minsan ay likas na katunggali and masa dahil ayaw nya sa mga kandidato ng Kaliwa. Kaakibat ng araw araw na  House to House(H2H) ay ang araw araw na pagkapagod o pagkapagal ng mga paa sa mahabang lakaran, ang pagkababad sa tirik na sikat ng araw at ang minsanang pagkaubos ng boses kakasalita at kakapaliwanag sa masa.

Napaka signipikante ng ating H2H, dahil di tulad ng mga tradisyunal na pulitiko o Trapo na dinadaan nalang sa vote buying ang lahat para manalo(tulad ng LPGMA sa aming lugar); sa H2H, nagagawa nating makipag integrate sa masa. Malaman ang pulso nya, ang kanilang pampulitikang paninindigan at higit sa lahat : kung paano sila lilinyahan ng tamang prinsipyo at ideolohiya. Sa pamamagitan ng H2H ay napaalam natin sa masa ang uri ng pagbabago na isinusulong natin.

At kaiba sa mga tradisyunal na pulitiko na ang hangad lang ay ang makaganansya ng boto..Ang ginawa nating istilo ng kampanya ay hindi lamang para ipaalam sa masa ang ating mga numero sa balota, kungdi pagbibitbit din pambansang kalagayan kung saan kahit na lumalahok tayo sa elektoral na kampanya, hindi padin natin nakakalimutang maglingkod at makisangkot sa mga isyung panlipunan.

Ang kampanyang masa ay ginagawa naman natin kahit walang eleksyon. Ngunit ang pagbibitbit ng kampanyang masa sa panahon ng eleksyon ay ang pinaka tumpak ding panahon para pag usapan ito.

Ang H2H sa buong maghapon sa komunidad at ang gabi gabing OD ay ilan lang sa mga bagay na hahanap hanapin ng katawan ko, ngayong tapos na ang elektoral na kampanya.

Pero sa pagtatapos ng araw, ang panahon lang naman ng eleksyo ang natapos at hindi ang panahon ng tuloy tuloy na pakikisangkot at pagkilos para sa batayang karapatan. Ngayong tapos na ang eleksyon ay babalik na naman tayo sa pinapakatan nating mga erya tulad ng komunidad at mga eskwelahan para patuloy na magmulat, mag organisa at mag mobilisa.

Dahil sa huli, hindi naman ang eleksyon o ang bagong pangulo ng bansa ang syang mapagpasya kungdi ang sama sama at tuloy tuloy na pagkilos, kasama ang masa, para sa pambansang demokrasya.

Students hold protest at HOR, violently dispersed

LFS.PH


Students led by members of the League of Filipino Students and KABATAAN Partylist held a protest action at the House of Representatives (HOR) today to call for an increase in the budget of education and other basic services but were violently dispersed by HOR security.The following is an appeal made by the LFS along with other student organizations and alliances to demand an increase in government budget to education:

An Appeal to Congress to Increase the Budget of State Colleges and Universities, Particularly Its Capital Outlay

I. Whereas, among the public infrastructure severely damaged by the onslaught of Typhoon Ondoy are state colleges and universities in Metro Manila, Southern Tagalog, and Central Luzon, including the Marikina Polytechnic College

II. Whereas, among the public infrastructure severely damaged by the onslaught of Typhoon Pepeng are state colleges and universities in Northern Luzon, Cagayan Valley and the Cordillera Administrative Region

III. Whereas, State Colleges and Universities have pending budget proposals for already delayed construction of new buildings and acquisition of equipment, the effects of which include the overcrowding of dilapidated classrooms, laboratories and support facilities, and the deprivation of further knowledge production and transfer through the building of new facilities and the acquisition of new equipment

IV. Whereas, the proposed 2010 overall budget for SUCs have been reduced by P3.19 billion, from P21.23 billion in 2009 to a proposed P21.034 billion in 2010

V. Whereas, the content of the SUC budget reductions include providing zero capital outlay and a severe reduction of the SUCs Maintenance and Other Operating Expenses (MOOE)

VI. Whereas, a clear example such budget reduction is the University of the Philippines, the proposed 2010 budget of which had been reduced by P2.09 billion for 2010, from P7.38 billion in 2009 to a proposed P5.29 billion for 2010.

VII. Whereas, the continuous infusion of government funding to SUCs, particularly on capital outlay, is in pursuance of the universally-accepted right to education and the constitutional provision mandating government to make higher education accessible to all Filipino youth

VIII. Whereas, the continuing deprivation of adequate funding for SUCs, including that of capital outlay, had been the primary causa for SUCs to embark on tuition and other fee increases, and other income-generating measures, operating similarly as private higher educational institutions

IX. Whereas, by embarking on tuition and other fee increases, and other income-generating measures due to the lack of adequate government funding, the universally-accepted right to education and the constitutional mandate for government to make higher education accessible to all shall be infringed

X. Whereas, while it had been a long-standing executive policy to encourage income-generation amid decreasing government funding for SUCs, Congress, in the exercise of its checking powers, may increase the funding for SUCs in order to arrest the infringement of the universally-accepted right to education and the constitutional mandate on government to make higher education accessible to all.

IN LIGHT OF ALL THESE, the following national student unions and organizations – National Union of Students of the Philippines, College Editors Guild of the Philippines League of Filipinos Students, ANAKBAYAN, Student Christian Movement, respectfully appeal to the legislators to increase the budget of all State Colleges and Universities, particularly their Capital Outlay.

AN URGENT APPEAL

Dear broters and sisters

Warm greeting of solidarity!

Our kababayans (fellow countrymen) urgently need our help and support. Days after typhoon Ondoy (international codename: Ketsana) lashed the country with heavy rains on September 26,2009, we witnessed the gravity of devastation it has brought to millions of Filipinos. The nine-hour heavy rainfall, equivalent with the average amount of rainfall for one month according to the PAG-ASA weather bureau, led to flash floods that submerged about 80percent of the capital of more than 12 million inhabitants.

The death toll is now more than 200, while scores remain missing. Metro Manila, the country’s capital, including Marikina and towns of Rizal, recorded the most number of displaced families and damage to houses, properties, infrastructure and livelihood. Neighboring regios of Central Luzon and Southern Tagalog were not spared, as the heavy rainfall brought damage to farmer’s crops and livestock.

National youth organizations, student councils, campus publications and Kabataan Partylist have formed TULONG KABATAAN, a relief drive for the victims of Typhoon Ondoy.

The major objective of the relief drive is to consolidate efforts among the youth in gathering immediate relief for the affected communities. We also ain to reach out to other communities affected by the floods that are not currently covered by ongoing relief and rescue operations.
