ROVINCIAL Capitol, Agusan del Sur--- Violence, said to be instigated by communist guerillas, remains a top peace and order concern in the province, according to the assessment by the local peace and order body.

The report came in the heels of a recent attack by the New Peoples Army that left at least five workers dead at a rubber plantation owned by the family of the late Mayor Deo Manpatilan of Esperanza town. Initial police probe said

the raid by some 100 members of NPA’s Guerilla Front 88 was a revenge against Manpatilan, who was also the supreme tribal chieftain of the Higaonon tribe in the hinterlands of Agusan del Sur and Bukidnon CONCERN | page 11

Cop slain while serving search warrant to gun violators in N.Cotabato PRESIDENT ROXAS, North Cotabato (PNA) -– Policemen are pursuing suspects who killed an officer on early Wednesday when a police team attempted to search a house whose family members were charged of gun possession in Barangay Greenhills here.

Police identified the victim as Senior Police Officer 2 Eldorado Dolloso of President Roxas-Philippine National Police (PNP). Senior Inspector Marlou Dolar, chief of President Roxas PNP, said there was resistance when Dolloso and his team, armed with a search warrant issued by Judge Arvin Sadiri Balagot, attempted to enter the house of Willie Sagucom Pepito and his son, Kokoy. But instead of allowing

Dolloso to come in, a shot was fired, Dolar said. Dolloso was hit on the head and died while being treated at Antipas Medical Special Hospital in nearby Antipas town. After the shooting, both Willie and Kokoy fled towards unknown direction, Dolar said. However, the police as of this posting has yet to establish who among the two fired since the shot came from the house. The Pepitos, based on the search warrant, are accused of violation of Presidential Decree 1866 as amended by Republic Act 8294 for allegedly carrying unlicensed firearms. Dolar said pursuit operations are still ongoing. Reports from the Criminal Investigation and Detection (CID)Team in North Cotabato said that other than carrying unlicensed guns, the suspects are also facing other criminal charges. (PNA)

Rebels reject mayor’s plea to release 5 soldiers DAVAO CITY (PNA) -- The National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) in Mindanao has rejected

Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio's call to release the five Army soldiers abducted by New Peoples Army (NPA)

rebels in Paquibato District last June 17. “We regret to inform Mayor Sara Duterte that we cannot heed to her request since there are still processes to be made,” Jorge Madlos alias Ka Oris said. Madlos said the soldiers supposedly have yet to be investigated for possible crimes they had committed against the people. Duterte-Carpio earlier asked the NPAs to release the five soldiers since “it doesn’t have any positive contribution to the city. It only adds to their notoriety.” The incident only worried the family of the soldiers, the mayor added. The soldiers identified as Corporal Emmanuel Emmanuel A Quezon, Privates First Class Ronald Gura, Donato Estandia, and Private Marteniano Pasiagas Jr. were on their way to the market to purchase some supplies when blocked by the rebels in Bangkaan, Paquibato District.

Go for 350! EVERYDAY a lot of human activities involve emission of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere from the mundane turning on of lights, heating or cooling of homes, cooking of food, to large-scale burning of forests, production in factories, and running of vehicle engines. What are just mentioned are essential to people’s dayto-day living and survival but the tradeoff from the benefits we get from them deserve our immediate attention for they far outweigh the convenience we claim to be vital to civilization. Carbon dioxide is a heattrapping greenhouse gas that is identified as a major culprit to climate change. With an atmosphere of high carbon dioxide concentration, earth’s temperature continues to rise in an alarmingly rapid pace. We have been for years dealing with an escalating global warming. A May 2013 report shows that carbon dioxide emissions have reached an unprecedented level of 400 parts per million (ppm). According to readings issued from the Mauna Loa Observatory, this is higher than in the past 800,000 years. In fact, the highest ever recorded in the planet’s history. But what should cause more worry is that the figures already exceeded the safe upper limit of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, a few notches higher than the set 350 ppm. As the planet experiences the evident environmental crisis, the clock is ticking and humans are in a race against time and, for certain, the imminent worse case scenario. United States, which is considered as a major contributor to carbon dioxide emissions, suffer high temperature in winters and summers. Even wind, rains, and storms have intensified. Africa, although a least carbon dioxide contributor, suffers the effects of global warming because it lost many of its trees. In the Philippines, even the dry season has been marred by typhoons accompanied by floods and landslides ravaging parts of the country. It may be impossible to stop the growing damage at this point but something can still be done to save what’s left of the habitable portions of our home, our existence. Reduction of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere requires the reduction of emissions on one hand and the sequestration of these heat-trapping gases on another. One of the significant efforts to sequester carbon dioxide is through planting of trees. The more vegetation that thrives, the more greenhouse gases are sequestered

from the atmosphere. Trees absorb and store greenhouse gases. Close to home, the third run of Run 2 Plant 4 GREENIN Philippines, which was convened by Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. and partners in 2011, will be held simultaneously in the 40 component local government units of Cebu province and several areas in southern Philippines. This year, Naga City and Cordova will host the central events in support of the ridge (Naga City) to reef (Cordova) perspective in biodiversity enhancement that takes into account enhancing not only upland vegetation but also coastal areas. Interested individuals may coordinate with their respective municipalities. Those from Cebu City can register either in Naga City or Cordova. In Naga City, participants may contact Boy Hilado of the City Environment and Natural Resources Office at 489-8989. Participants in the Cordova run, may contact Joy Baguio of the Department of Agriculture at 236-3812 or Lily Ator of the Office of Municipal Planning and Development Coordinator at 236-4194. Other local government units participating in the event include Talisay City, Minglanilla, San Fernando, Carcar City, and Sibonga ib the first district; Argao, Dalaguete, Alcoy, Boljoon, Oslob, Santander, Samboan, Ginatilan, Sibonga, Badian, Alegria, Moalboal, Ronda, malabuyoc, and Alcantra in the second district; Asturias, Tuburan, Balamban, and Barili in the third district; Medellin, Bogo City. Bantayan, Tabogon, Madridejos, and Tabuelan in the fourth district; Liloan, Sogod, Carmen, San Francisco, Borbon, Catmon, Compostela, and Danao City in the fifth district, and Consolacion in the sixth district. Run 2 Plant 4 GREENIN Philippines, one of the components of GREENIN Philippines program, is a fun run and planting activity that provides a venue for every Filipino to contribute in rehabilitating and protecting our environment. It aims to expand the country’s forest cover and bring back biodiversity by planting native trees. This event is in line with the national government’s National Greening Program (NGP) and tied to the DILG’s Billion Trees Program under NGP. As we celebrate Environment Month, it is not enough that we remember that we are stewards of the earth but we must choose to rethink and redo things if we want to save the only home we have.

International Labor Confab agree principles on greener economy GENEVA, Xinhua--Delegates in the ongoing International Labor Conference (ILC) on Wednesday agreed on the key guiding principles to achieve a just transition to a greener economy. “The greening of economies...has the potential to be a new engine of growth, both in advanced and developing economies, and to be a net generator of decent green jobs that can contribute significantly to poverty eradication and social inclusion,” said the ILC Committee on Sustainable Development in its conclusions. The tripartite ILC Committee, composed of delegates from governments, workers and employers, called for all jobs and enterprises to become greener by introducing more energy and resource-efficient practices. This can be realized by increasing social dialogue and adopting coherent policies, customized to each country’s need, and by paying particular attention to labor standards, industrial policies and support to micro, small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), it said. It also highlighted the need for a strong link between the world of work and the world of education and training, the implementation and respect for occupational safety and health measures, and the promotion of sound, comprehensive and sustainable social protection systems. The ILC Committee called on the International Labor Organization (ILO) to further develop its research capacity, to share best practices with constituents and to provide guidance for SMEs and cooperatives to green their production processes with greater energy efficiency and a better use of resources. The ILO said that the transition to a greener economy could help reach many social

goals over the next 20 to 30 years, including creating 15 to 60 million additional decent jobs, a substantial contribution

to tackling global unemployment. The greening of the economy can also upgrade jobs and raise incomes as well, especially in

sectors such as agriculture, construction, recycling and tourism, according to the ILO. (PNA/ Xinhua)

Smuggling in ‘economic zone’ ports THE Department of Finance is planning to impose stricter policies in the operations of all shipping ports in the country. The idea is to narrow the occurrence of smuggling of contrabands in these shipping ports. There are plans to close some shipping ports that had outlived its importance. Perhaps, Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima who is pushing for the Cris Diaz review of all port operations in the country may have noticed that some shipping ports in the country became transshipment ports of contrabands. Purisima said that most of the suspected shipping ports are those located in “economic zone.” In the past, this corner has written one or two articles detailing the smuggling inside the economic zone areas. Smuggling in the shipping ports within economic zone areas are rampant since commodities entering in these areas are tax-free. There is a notion that commodities shipped via the economic zone ports are for the consumption of industries and companies within the economic zone. The tax incentive is one of the “come on” that lure companies to settle in economic zoned areas. There are economic zones in the country with occupied shipping ports. For instance, the Phivedec Industrial Estate in Misamis Oriental (PIE-MO) is one of the industrial economic zones in the country. The Mindanao International Container Terminal (MICT) port is at PIE-MO. Constructed for bulk handling and large cargo shipment, MICT became one of the leading industrial ports in the country today.

Here, goods and commodities entering the port of PIE-MO are not subject to stringent port policies. The presumption is that the goods shipped through the PIE - MO port is for the consumption of the firms within the Phivedec Industrial Estate. Therefore, these goods are tax-free. However, the policy loopholes at the industrial and economic zone ports have not escaped the creativity of smugglers. Since the operation of the MICT in Misamis Oriental, report of alleged rampant smuggling at the port hogged the newspapers and periodicals. There were insinuations that assignment at the MICT is one of the prize positions for customs officials in Northern Mindanao. There were talks that those assigned at the MICT has the imprimatur of top customs officials in the district. Perhaps, anyone who wants an assignment at MICT should master the “dancing steps” at the customs bureau. In fact, there were allegations that those assigned at the MICT have been subject of investigation for ill-gotten wealth. Purisima may have been aware of the operation at the MICT that he cited the Cagayan de Oro Port as one of the “shopping ports” in the country that suspected smugglers valued so much. For instance, Purisima said that the name of a company disappeared from the list at the Subic Port area for a year. Purisima later discovered that the name of the company appeared in the list at the Cagayan de Oro City Port. For this, the Department of Finance is now planning to issue accreditation to companies operating in various ports in the country. The idea is to prevent a firm from hopping from one port to another. Well, what Purisima has discovered is only the tip of an iceberg. Digging deeper would expose “cans of worms” in these port areas. React: crisguardian@yahoo.com

Capitalist unwritten mantra

Leaders in the Philippines and in many countries abroad have finally taken stock of natural calamities particularly flooding plaguing their respective localities but inexplicably not one of them is looking at the problem as caused by greed spawned by the present capitalist order where even nature is not viewed as vital part in supporting human life thus its wanton abuse which is fueled by such greed. The capitalist unwritten mantra is obviously to abuse and destroy everything on earth in the name of profit thus its predator behavior preying both on humans and the natural resources of this world. Since no one

A deeper view Jesse E.L. Bacon II is viewing the present-day calamities that are wreaking havoc here in our country and elsewhere abroad, the proposed solutions are likewise very capitalist in their nature. This capitalist mindset is the plague that is slowly but surely destroying the fabric where human life is woven with the rest of the

natural environment. The current natural calamities of inestimable magnitude reflect the destruction of that fabric. Sadly, however, humans are trying their best to ignore or even deny the fact that all the sufferings and miseries now faced by humanity is the causal result of the destruction of this perfectly woven fabric that

bound human and natural life together. Nowadays, humans no longer look at the environment as a vital part of the equation primarily ensuring life itself. Of course, it is because of human’s insatiable greed that brought about the destruction of the environment resulting in unprecedented flooding, to mention just one natural calamity, not only in our country but other parts of the world as well. What pisses me off is that people in the position of leadership just think of ambulatory yet very expensive solutions to address the problem of flooding, for example. But these proposed mantra | page 8

Jesus criticized the people of Israel for keeping their treasures

F resh G ospel of the day: Matthew6:1923(June21, 2013-Friday) Matthew 6:19-23-Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great [is] that darkness:

According to St. Jerome Biblical commentary page 74-“Archaeologists” discovered coins in their ancient houses and this reflects that it was very hard for them to acquire money that’s why; they will “hoard it below the ground for safe keeping.” Even to their “costly garments,” they will put it below

the ground for preservation. These ideas and styles were not “acceptable to Jesus” since this is supposed to be shared and given to others. Proverb says,” blessings are too small when it is put in our hands, but if it is shared, it will be multiplied many times.” n James 4:4-know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the

enemy of God. This means that if “we will focus our interest on earthly things,” we will become “enemies of God.” Being “materialistic” means making our own “gods and goddesses” in our day to day life. This is called “greediness.” Are you greedy?

ERC okays supply deals of 4 M’nao power coops By IRINE DOMINGO Business Daily reporter

FOUR electric utilities in Mindanao finally have clearance from the Energy Regulatory Board (ERC) to source their electricity from the Alcantara-owned power plant based in Iligan City. The ERC approved the supply deals between Mapalad Power Corp and Agusan del Sur Electric Cooperative Inc (Aselco),

Agusan del Norte Electric Cooperative Inc (Aneco), South Cotabato II Electric Cooperative Inc (Socoteco II) and Iligan Light and Power Inc (Ilpi). Mapalad Power operates the Iligan diesel plant, which the company acquired from the Iligan City local government. The company is a subsidiary of Alsons Consolidated Resources Inc, the listed holding firm of the Alcantara Group.

Mapalad Power’s diesel plant operates on a limited capacity, but would increase to 98.5 megawatts after the company completes a P1.2 billion rehabilitation project before yearend. Based on the company’s supply deals with the cooperatives, the power plant will deliver 30 megawatts to Aselco, 15 megawatts to Aneco, 30 megawatts to Socoteco II, and 10 megawatts to Ilpi.

THe three-year supply from Mapalad Power will allow the electricity distributors to reduce the incidence of hours-long power outages in their respective service areas. Based on their petition before the ERC, daily power interruptions in Aneco’s franchise area last two to three hours. In Aselco, outages last four to five hours, while in Socoteco II and Ilpi, seven hours and 13 hours, respectively.

Customers would have to shoulder an increase in their electricity rates by the following projected amounts: P2.27 per kilowatt-hour for Aselco, P1.23 per kilowatt-hour for Aneco, P0.93 per kilowatthour for Socoteco II and P1.24 per kilowatt-hour for Ilpi. Mindanao has been suffering from persistent power interruptions because of insufficient power generating capacity and its

reliance on hydroelectric pplants for more than half of its electricity supply. Though they offer the cheapest power source in the region, power from hydro plants are unstable since they depend on optimal weather and reservoir conditions. The government expects Mindanao’s power woes to last until 2015 barring any delay in coal power projects in the pipeline.–Interaksyon

Energy department explores ‘Modular nuclear’ option By MYRNA M. VELASCO Contributor

THE Philippines is exploring the “modular nuclear” option. Energy Undersecretary Ramon Allan V. Oca told an audience at the Shell presentation of its “New Lens Scenarios” that “modular nuclear is currently being studied by the energy department.” Modular nuclear could make use of the smaller-scale installations of 100 megawatts or less compared to the capital-intensive

developments which are also of mammoth capacity. Up to this point though, Oca noted that the technology’s social acceptance “is being weighed on account of the nuclear power-related incidents (like Fukushima)” which triggered the stigma on embracing nuclear as an alternative in meeting a country’s energy needs. The Philippines’ initial experiment on nuclear power technology was during the Marcos regime via the mothballed Bataan Nuclear

Power Project (BNPP), which at that time commanded an investment of roughly $2 billion. At 98-percent construction completion and already at commissioning phase, the facility was shelved by the administration of former President Corazon Aquino, justifying its move then that the BNPP was sitting on a fault line. Recent studies, however, have been trying to disprove that. And despite calls for the BNPP to be repowered, it was already rendered to be a “dead option”

The Shell executive portended that “king coal” will be trounced by solar in the next 30 to 40 years.

News In Focus

Cuts of jail term law ok’d PRESIDENT Benigno S. Aquino III has recently signed into law Republic Act 10592 which amends the Revised Penal Code by, among others, granting an increase deduction from the period of a prisoner’s sentence for good conduct. This new law originated from numerous House Bills which were primarily coauthored by Rep. Rufus B. Rodriguez of Cagayan de Oro City. The law basically provides that the good conduct of any offender qualified for credit for preventive imprisonment or of any convicted prisoner in any penal institution, rehabilitation or detention center or any other local jail shall entitle him to deductions from the period of his sentence.

Mantra... from page 6

solutions simply mitigate the ill-effects of this particular natural calamity but never solve it. One newspaper report even said that some leaders in the United States and in Europe are already advising their respective citizens to accept the fact that they now have to live with the realities of flooding. Flooding is a man-made catastrophe. It is primarily caused by the wanton destruction of the world’s forest cover and aggravated by poor urban planning where

In the first two years of imprisonment, a prisoner is entitled to a deduction of 20 days from his/her jail term for each month

of good behavior from the original five days. From the third to the fifth year, he is entitled to 23 days from the original 8

days, from the sixth to the 10th year, 25 days from the original 10 days and from the 11th and in the succeeding year the prisoner is entitled to 30 days from the original 15 days. The prisoner would also be entitled to an additional deduction of 15 days for every month of study, teaching, or mentoring service time rendered. The new Republic Act also gives incentives to loyalty by giving a prisoner who escapes during a calamity or catastrophe a deduction of one fifth of the period of his sentence if he returns within 48 hours after the event has passed. If the prisoner stays during such a calamity or catastrophe, he is entitled to a deduction of two-fifths of his sentence.

urban centers are practically converted into concrete jungles. No matter how the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority and the Department of Public Works and Highways, for example, de-clog, de-silt urban rivers and esteros in the metropolis and its immediate environs or replace present culverts with much bigger ones, flooding will continue to haunt Metro Manila. Aside from the problem of voluminous trash thrown into these rivers and esteros by people who are definitely out of their minds, the constricting open

spaces that can absorb rain water because of what we can call the concretization of the metropolis is another big reason contributing greatly to flooding in urban centers. Of course, the heartless throwing of trash into these waterways is another classic example at how much humans have been alienated from nature and their fellow humans. Just think of the suffering, destruction and damage such mindless act of clogging waterways with tons of trash that resultantly prevent the free flow of water in these waterways if it does not point to the “what the

hell do I care” attitude. That attitude is the by-product of the individualistic nature of the capitalist order. In the said order, the most important is the self and one’s personal interests. If the capitalists only have hearts, would they have cut the trees serving as cover of our mountains in wild abandon? But because they are alienated from nature that is there to support life and from the rest of their fellow humans, they were able to do the unthinkable which is to bald the mountains of its forest cover. With bald mountains,

Rep. Rufus Rodriguez, 2nd District of Cagayan de Oro City, (standing in Congress) to bats for the reduction of penalties of prisoners displaying good conduct while serving in prison.

Emano urges resident to prepare during rainy days

CAGAYAN de Oro Mayor Vicente Emano on Thursday urged residents in Cagayan de Oro City to be on alert during rainy days especially those living in danger zone areas. Emano made the call in response to the onset of the rainy season where heavy rains suddenly occur without prior notice. “I asked those living near the rivers, streams, and landslide prone areas to be on alert at all times in order to be prepared during emergencies,” Emano said. Emano assured the residents that volunteers for the city disaster risk and reduction management council are always ready to extend assistance whenever necessary. He advised the city residents to listen to advisories from the city’s disaster and management council for updates, over local radio stations here. On Wednesday, Emano distributed some 2,000 free houses and lots to qualified residents who were living in flood and disaster prone areas in the city. The 2,000 free houses and lots were different from those free houses and lots given to typhoon Sendong victims in 2011. “All victims of the tragic typhoon Sendong were already given free houses and lots and were now living in disaster free relocation sites here,” Emano added. CRIS DIAZ rain water easily cascades from the mountains down to the lower grounds as big floods causing damage and destruction to farms and properties and deaths as well. Also look at how we extract the mineral resources in the bosom of the earth to satisfy the greed of capitalists? The manner by which mining is carried out here clearly ensures more natural calamities in the near future. Consider also the volume of mineral resources being extracted in the name of profit. They are doing it as if the bosom of the earth will never run out of extractable minerals.

But almost everyone turn a blind eye on all these abuses against nature and humans because we have been shaped to believe that if the abuse and destruction of life and nature are being carried out in the name of profit, it is moral, legal and ethical. When will we ever realize our folly? I hope the much-awaited awakening will come soon while human life is not yet totally annihilated by nature’s fury in retaliation to our own abuse against her. •• (Reactions at jelbacon@ yahoo.com or at jelbaconii@ gmail.com)

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18) - Your feelings are unusually deep and possibly difficult -- but you can handle this! It’s almost certainly a good idea to check in with a good friend or close family member, but you just have to be honest. PISCES (February 19 – March 20) - You’re no doormat -- but you may feel like one! You are more sensitive than usual and could find that your people are taking you for granted a bit more than they should, but a quick word should fix everything. ARIES (March 21 – April 19) - Your emotional side is hyperactive now -- so make sure that you’re being clear with the most important people in your life. You have also got to be honest with yourself while you’re at it! TAURUS (April 20 – May 20) - Your feelings are still off the charts today, so expect some dizzying highs and teary lows. You know you’re really living, but you also know that you’ll be glad to get back to normal in a while. GEMINI (May 21 – June 21) - Take better care of your body and mind today -- health is always vital, of course, but on a day like today, you can make a real difference without investing too much of yourself in the process. CANCER (June 22 – July 22) - Your emotions are somewhat more fragile today so try harder to keep a handle on what you’re feeling. That doesn’t mean being dishonest, just finding ways to express yourself maturely.

of the same digit.

LEO (July 23 – August 22) - Spend some quiet time thinking about recent developments. Today is all about insight, and you can learn something really valuable if you give yourself the space to reflect. It’s not so hard. VIRGO (August 23 – September 22) - Ask questions and be prepared for honest answers -- communication is easier today, even if what you hear makes you cringe. It’s all for the best, so try to reciprocate if you can. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22) - Try to dig in more deeply today -- your energy is somewhat spent, and you should be able to find a good resting point soon. It’s better to focus on one person or project than spread yourself too thin. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21) - You’ve got that look again -- your intensity is showing! That is almost certain to work to your advantage, as people are more likely to defer to your opinions or needs when they see how you look at them. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21) You’re somewhat grumpier than usual today -- even after your last cup of coffee. It’s a good time to work on your own projects and to take time out for serious meditation. You can learn a lot! CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19) - Power doesn’t come without a struggle -- even if it’s all internal! Face your inner demons and see if you can get them to back down, because it’s time for you to assert yourself forcefully.

RDC-13 endorses agreement on forest lands By Robert E. Roperos

BUTUAN City – The Development Administration Committee (DAC) of the Regional Development Council (RDC-Caraga) has endorsed the immediate issuance by RDC Full Council of a comanagement agreement for the fast resumption of processing of forest land applications nationwide. . The proposed agreement shall be between the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG). Speaking during the second quarter committee meeting Tuesday, Alex Garay of the Agusan del Norte Provincial Economic Enterprise and Develop-

provinces. An output of the Provincial Situational Analysis and Organizational Assessment (PSAOA) workshop showed that insurgency is on top of the other major conflicts/issues identified by participants because the threats and violent activities of the NPA have seriously affected the peace and order situation in the province. During the workshop discussion, PSAOA participants even listed down the number of violent incidents recently inflicted by the NPA rebels. The other concerns raised, include criminality and illegal drugs, ancestral land disputes among lumads, infightings among tribal leaders and environmental degradation that has caused natural disasters in the province. The seminar output is being validated by the Provincial Peace and Order Council, the Department of the Interior and Local Government – provincial and regional offices – and the GIZ- Conflict Sensitive Resources and Asset Management (COSERAM), a Federal Republic of Germany organization. The validation tackles ten major conflicts/issues identified by the workshop participants, trimmed down to insurgency, criminality and illegal drugs, land issues among indigenous peoples, and environmental conflicts. The participants have considered criminality and illegal drugs as the second

ment Management Office (PEEDMO) said DENR is now reviewing the operation of co-management agreements within forest lands and protected areas to ensure a uniform application of an agreement throughout the country vis-à-vis the inherent functions of DENR and the local government units based on existing laws, rules and regulations. Garay also said that as an output of the review, the DENR and the DILG issued a joint memorandum circular entitled “Clarifying and Strengthening the Collaboration and Partnership between the DENR and LGU in the Management, Protection, and Development of forest Lands the Resource Therein and Establishing Guidelines on Partnership

and Co-Management of Forest Lands.” The official further stressed that one of the affected areas in the province is the Las Nieves-Buenavista-Carmen (LASBUENASCAR) Co-Management Project. Garay explained that considered to have a potential for plantation of crops, the LASBUENASCAR co-management area has attracted various investors who expressed interest for joint ventures with the province of Agusan del Norte. However, Garay said due to the conduct of the review, the activities of the co-management program of LASBUENASCAR have been suspended. The suspension is costly to the LGU in terms of lost opportunities.

With these developments, Garay said the provincial government of Agusan del Norte appeals for support from the RDCDAC for the speedy issuance of the said DENR-DILG Memorandum Circular on Co-Management Agreement of Forest Lands to clear up issues and to facilitate efficient operation of the LASBUENASCAR Co-Management Project. Meanwhile, National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA)-Caraga Assistant Regional Director Myla Faye Carino, who presided over the meeting said that on the part of the committee, memberstakeholders are hoping that the endorsement would bear positive results.

highest threat to peace and order because most of the crimes committed in the province are due to influence of illegal drugs. Indigenous peoples (IPs) and land issues surfaced as another priority concern. Considering that Agusan del Sur is generally surrounded by ancestral domains of indigenous cultural communities (ICC) and indigenous peoples (IPs), it is not surprising that tribal and land conflicts are presently serious issues. The participants also noted that mostly in the hinterlands, violent incidents were driven by emergence of timberland agreements (TLAs), issuance of tenurial instruments, abuses of logging companies, indoctrination of NPAs, ideology, independence of Mindanao or local autonomy, clamour of IPs of their ancestral domain lands, unjust share from mining companies, conflict of interest, lack of coordination and harmonization among national government agencies in implementing land laws, adoption of Kyoto protocol by the Philippine Government, identification of mining and non-mining areas. Conflicts over the legitimacy of tribal leaders also surfaced as another issue that the IPs are facing, among others. Environmental issues become another problem that the participants have identified and validated. They found out that flooding has become one of the most serious calamities the province is confronting due to illegal logging and

mining. As a result of illegality, these activities have greatly affected the peace and order in the province. (CVP/DS/ jdelpf )

kilograms of silver, but closed down again because of mine flooding and underground fire. The abandoned mine site was not rehabilitated until Red5 Limited secured a mining permit in 2002. It was granted an environmental compliance certificate in April 2009 despite prior scheduled Final Mine Rehabilitation and Decommissioning Plan expected late May of same year, according to Garganera. The Siana gold project adopts open pit and underground mining procedures and, as originally designed, will deliver a minimum 849,000 ounces of gold production a year at a cash cost of under $400 per ounce over a ten-year life, he added. Responding to Garganera’s statement, MGBCaraga Mining Environment Division Chief Rene Gonzales said Suricon was not obliged to submit a decommissioning and mine rehabilitation plan, having been created before the Mining Act of 1995 was passed, hence not covered by said law. He said that GRC was using Suricon’s old tailings dam, which recently suffered a crack, but assured that the facility serving as catchment of wastes from the processing plant, was repaired by GRC itself to mitigate any possible spill.

dent describes anew the NPA rebel’s barbaric, antidevelopment and anti-people motives,” said Brigadier General Ricardo R Visaya, 4ID officer-in-charge. He lamented, “the attack did not only leave relatives crying for justice for their dead, but also left jobless communities, whose survival mainly depended on jobs they were enjoying from the company. General Visaya described the incident as gravely hampering progress and development in the area. “We will not allow incidents like this to hinder peace and development in our area. Close collaboration among LGUs, government agencies, non-government organizations and other stakeholders is best to counter these unproductive and inhumane atrocities initiated by the NPA. Communities should now stop supporting the rebels”, Brig. Gen. Visaya added. (LEB/ jdelpf )
