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.

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.

    Filipino Youth UNITE AND TAKE ACTION

    (Please repost in your blogs, personal websites, accounts in social networking sites, and anywhere else in cyberspace.)

    Reposted from Bikoy.net

    Youth Action Day set on June 19, Rizal Day

    Kabataan Party-list Rep. Mong Palatino today said that youth groups will launch a nationwide petition campaign against the convening of a constituent assembly when classes open on Monday, June 15.

    “We expect to gather one million signatures until the State of the Nation Address in July. Let this be a testament of how youth and students everywhere despise con-ass and attempts of the Arroyo administration to extend her term,” Palatino said.

    Palatino said that Kabataan Party-list will be putting up signature campaign booths in schools and universities nationwide starting Monday.

    Palatino’s office would also be sponsoring forums and campus tours dubbed ‘Konsultahang Kabataan’ with the topic, “Con-Ass and the 2010 Elections.’

    “We will continue to work despite (Congress being on) recess. We will be reaching out to our constituents nationwide to gather their opinions and unite our ranks against this dreaded con-ass. Expect youth protests to snowball in the following days,” he said.

    June 19 Youth Action Day

    Palatino also announced that they are preparing for a Youth Action Day on June 19, Rizal Day, and Kabataan Party-list’s founding anniversary.

    “There is no better date to showcase youth unity and love for nation than this coming June 19, Rizal Day. Kabataan ang pag-asa ng bayan, hindi para sa bukas pa kundi ngayon na when our youth are being confronted with tyrannical attempts to discard our democratic rights,” Palatino said.

    June 19, Palatino said, will kick off with a Morning Jog vs. Conass at 6:00 in the morning in Baywalk towards the Manila City Hall where first time voters will collectively register. A main program will be held in Luneta from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon, and then participants will embark on a march-parade around Metro Manila schools along Taft and Intramuros.

    Participants will then converge in front of the Commission on Elections by 2:00pm for a closing program to call for clean and honest elections in 2010. A youth concert will also be held at 6:00 in the afternoon in Quezon City.

    “We call on all democracy-loving youth to join us. Together, let us reject con-ass and demand regime and societal change in 2010,” Palatino said.

    2010 is nearing and as expected by many..CHACHA is now being pushed by the shameful CONASS! I would like to adress my shame to our Congressman Roman T. Romulo of Pasig for supporting the very unconstitutional CHACHA through the passing of HR 1109.

    Come and join the widespread campaign of protesting against CONASS! Let us blog and post to all of our social networking sites such as Friendster, Multiply, Facebook our rage against the hasty passing of HR 1109.
