IPs get ‘special treatment’ in the Bangsamoro territory Fourth of a series By BONG D. FABE

CAGAYAN de Oro City––Like the Bangsamoro who are about to enjoy the full recognition — selfgovernance and self-determination — they fought for for decades, the

indigenous peoples (IPs) living within the to be established new Bangsamoro territory will enjoy all the freedoms recognized by national and international laws/ conventions in accordance to their unique customs, traditions, beliefs and cultural identity. In recognition of their simi-

larities, the IPs — who are kins of the Bangsamoro — get a sort of “special treatment” within the Bangsamoro territory: rights and freedoms that they have not yet fully exercise and enjoy at present on top of the rights and freedoms they are already enjoying. The draft Bangsamoro Basic

Law (BBL), as a general rule, adhere to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of the Indigenous Peoples and fully recognize and protect the rights, customs and traditions, beliefs and cultures of the IP inhabitants of the Bangsamoro territory. These general rule or principles

are based on the IPs’ rights to freedom of choice, just and equal treatment, and freedom from discrimination. The other bases are economic and geographical criteria, individual and communal property rights, cultural integrity, customary beliefs, historical See special, page 11

He proposed a resolution requesting City Mayor Oscar Moreno to suspend the operations of the white river rafting activity until such time that the City Council can determine measures so

that accidents of this nature will not happen again. Tabor also suggested that the committee on tourism jointly with committee on trade, commerce and cooperatives chaired by Councilor Edna Dahino invite outfitters and operators. He said they must convince the City Council as a whole that it is safe to pursue the said activity.

He added that it is necessary to review the existing ordinance. “It is true that this is the first time all of us are in unison that we hate or fear that there will be a second time,” Tabor said.

Butuan council reinstates 30 Job Order traffic aides By PAT SAMONTE Regional Editor-Caraga

BUTUAN City––Through a motion by City Councilor Jaime Cembrano, Jr., the Sangguniang Panlungsod here has reinstated

30 Job Order workers of the Land Transportation and Traffic Management Office (LTTMO) during its June 17, 2014 session at the City Mayor’s Conference Room 2. The move was in re-

sponse to LTTMO Chief Artemio Radaza’s request to retain the 30 workers since the remaining 40 traffic aides could not cope with the huge task of maintaining the whole city’s traffic operation.

Radaza cited that lack of traffic aides had caused last month’s increase in traffic incidents. According to Councilor Ryan Anthony Culima, the city will spend some P160 million should it opt

to purchase and install 60 new traffic lights needed for a modern, efficient and effective traffic system. O w i ng to f i n an c i a l constraints, the SP decided to reinstate the 30 Job Order workers to help

maintain smooth traffic flow especially at peak time. The 30 Job Order traffic workers’ temporar y appointments were not renewed last January and in effect were terminated.

DAR-Agusan Norte faces big test in 2014 land distribution By PAT SAMONTE

BUTUAN City––The Department of Agrarian Reform in Agusan del Norte is facing a huge challenge of distributing 4.800 hectares of agricultural lands to landless farmers this year. Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer Andre Atega regards the target as

“unprecedented” and said, meeting it, “requires a lot of hard work, commitment, and determination.” According to Atega, the land distribution target is “the highest and most challenging in the history of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program in Agusan del Norte” for which efforts to acquire and distribute lands will be intensified.

In 2013, Atega broke all land distribution records percentage-wise by delivering 3,091 hectares to soil tillers or 226 percent more than the annual projection of 1,370 hectares. During his unannounced visit to DAR-Caraga’s 2013 Christmas Party, Secretary Virgilio de los Reyes recognized and lauded Atega’s feat. See faces, page 11

World Vision launches book drive in Bukidnon


DON CARLOS, Bukidnon — As the world celebrates World Day Against Child Labor (WDACL) in June 12, the World Vision launched a book drive in Don Carlos, Bukidnon. The book collecting event will run for weeks up until July

30 to gather more used or new books from generous individuals or groups. Every book donated will be handed over to Learning Resource Centers (LRCs) established in two profiled barangays of Don Carlos municipality, namely Sinangguyan and Maray-maray. Steve Francis Sarigumba, World Vision provincial engage-

ment officer, said this is one of the many strategic interventions implemented by World Vision through the project dubbed “PagAaral ng Bata para sa Kinabukasan-Livelihood, Education, Advocacy, and Protection (ABK3 LEAP), which endeavors to reduce child labor through education. He said the the book drive was

part of the weeklong celebration of WDACL in town, where various events were also conducted such as poster-making contest, Pinoylympics, livelihood products display, and reflexology service. “This initiative aims to develop positive attitude for reading that promote literacy, emphasizing the need to establish a commu-

nity-based support system for identified struggling learners to prevent them from dropping out of schools,” he said. The International Labor Organization (ILO) estimates 2.4 million child workers are in the Philippines and many of them are in rural areas working in fields. See vision, page 11

High tech gets me down

ONCE upon a time, when I was still single: Very early in the morning, I got into the kitchen longing for a cup of coffee or even two, while feeling this terrible rheumatic pain. I slid a cup of water into my 10-year-old microwave. I felt a little bit chagrined because I never figured out how to use it other than heat water for instant coffee or a threeminutes-fast-food-soup. Some time later. My freezer showed its red emergency light. I tried to ignore it even knowing that this indifference could only let that become the problem become worse. A friendly neighbor, a really blessed high-intelligent electrician, solved the problem within a minute. Another example: In the car, I fumble with the new digital radio. Before I know it, I, tilting sideways at a 45-degree angle, trying to drive and figure out the

Have my say Klaus Doring radio’s numerous controls at the same time. Yes, yes, I know. This has been more than dangerous. An urgent, uncomfortably close horn jolts me upright. Chastened, I only manage to turn off the radio and drive in silence. Do you know how to operate your telephone unit in the office, if you urgently have to transfer a mis-dialed incoming long distance call to the right person and his local number? No call-forwarding available...! You have been using the system for a year or even longer, but you have never mastered the transfer function. “Just a moment please,

hang on,” you say as you hit a button and accidently cut the caller off. How to change paper roll in the fax machine? How to change the ink cartridge of a printer? Yes, the printer will not work unless all cartridges are installed properly. Let’s hit the button, and let’s be patient for 90 seconds or so, and then – hopefully. Instructions and manuals looked like blueprints for an airplane construction. Have you ever studied how we use our high tech appliances? Our modern homes are filled up with sophisticated gadgets that are rarely

used to their full potential because they simply too complicated to operate. A good friend of mine confessed just yesterday: “I am still ignorant of computers. Just let me ride a carabao, and I am more comfortable rather than touching computers!” We buy all these machines, but become frightened by the profusion of switches and buttons and operate just the basic functions. I really smiled, when I found a quotation of Donald A.

DTI lauds ASEAN support for SMEs


e partm e nt o f Trade and Industry (DTI) recently commended the ASEAN Small-Medium E n t e r p r i s e Wo r k i n g Group (SMEWG) for its efforts to implement the major commitments for SME development under the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) Blueprint that will provide concrete goals to establish a single market and production base in the region by 2015. “As we move towards the ASEAN integration in 2015, supporting SMEs should be more than ever be prioritized by members. SMEs must embrace the AEC as a means towards achieving their own growth potential, where goods and services can now freely move across ASEAN,” DTI Undersecretary Zenaida C. Maglaya said in her opening remarks during t h e 4 t h A SE A N S M E Advisory Board Meeting. Maglaya also acknowledged the achievements of the ASEAN SMEWG help de velop regional cooperation in assisting SME access to finance, upgrading SME

technological capacities and management skills, as well as fostering participation of SME in the export market. In their two-day meeting, the SMEWG identified key focus areas wherein guidance and assistance to SMEs will produce maximum benefit for the ASEAN small and medium b u s i n e s s c o m m u n i t y. It a l s o w o r k e d w i t h international organizations l i ke O rg an i s at i on for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), G er man Inter nat iona l Cooperation (GIZ), and various dialogue partners to gather their experience and knowledge on the best practices in drawing the best courses of action for the benefit of SMEs in the ASEAN region. It also discussed inputs in drafting the next Strategic Action Plan for SME Development, covering 2016 to 2025. The ASEAN SMEWG takes high-priority SME matters to the ASEAN SME Advis or y B o ard, which in turn provides strategic policy inputs on SME development to the ASEAN Economic

Ministers. The SME Advisory Board also serves as a forum for networking am ong pr i v at e s e c t or representatives to advance SME competitiveness and sustainability. Maglaya noted that the ASEAN SME Advisor y B o ard m ar k s an ot h e r key milestone in further elevating the status of SMEs in Southeast Asia. “The creation of the ASEAN SME Advisor y Board is fully supported by the Philippines. I ardently believe that the Advisory B oard is a signif icant d e v e l o p m e nt t ow a r d s advancing the growth of SMEs in ASEAN,” Maglaya said. Maglaya noted that the world enthusiastically a nt i c i p at e s w h at w i l l happen in 2015 with the full establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community. She added that the impact is real and realizable with a market of over 600 million consumers, and combined gross domestic product (GDP) of nearly US$3 trillion, which could easily reach US$4 trillion in 2020 bygrowing at an expected rate of 5 percent.

“Indeed, we see 2014 as the turning year, which will determine our ultimate achievement by 2015. For the next year and beyond, we encourage our private sector partners to join us in putting to reality our vision to promote innovative, competitive and resilient ASEAN SMEs as the new engine of growth that would contribute to the equitable economic growth,” Maglaya added. Maglaya also said that a regional agenda for SMEs, under the ASEAN Strategic Plan of Action for SMEs, creates guidance for ASEAN member states like the Philippines. “As in most of ASEAN countries, the Philippine SM E s e c t or h a s b e e n and continues to remain as the key driver of the c o u n t r y ’s e c o n o m i c growth. Accounting for 99.6 percent of total business establishments and 60 percent of total employment in the country, there is vast potential to enhance the small and medium enterprises’(SMEs) contribution to the economy,” Maglaya said.

personnel from the local and national government agencies, barangay officials, school officials, and other organizations. The celebration is an initiative of the local government to commemorate and celebrate the Chabacano language. The 23rd of June, by virtue of City Ordinance 374, is officially recognized as the Dia de Fundacion de Chabacano and celebrates the founding of the Chabacano language, one of the foundations of the Zamboangueño culture.


Mayor Ma. Isabelle Climaco-Salazar will keynote the celebration while Councilor Vincent Paul Elago, author of Ordinance 374, will deliver an inspirational message. The Chabacano language traces its roots to the laying of the first cornerstone of the Fort Pilar on June 23, 1635. Chabacano was borne out of necessity of an admixture of tribes, races and culture and out of it evolved a distinct language that is 60 percent Spanish in origin and 40 percent native words and survived to this very day. The 3rd Dia de Fundacion de Chabacano will conclude with the Concurso de Banda (Battle of the Bands) at 7 p.m. at the Paseo del Mar grounds. Meanwhile, Elago said the city government is initiating measures to promote the Chabacano language. (PNA)

Respect press freedom, media group tells Davao police


By TYRONE A. VELEZ, Davao Today

AVAO CITY – Journalists welcomed the apology from Davao City police director Vicente Danao for his tirade on three reporters, but they said the city police must do away with its rough treatment on members of the press. The Davao City chapter of the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines said the apology was made by Danao after public pressure criticizing him for berating three reporters who asked from his office on updates on the killing of hotel owner, Richard King. “ T h e ap o l o g y w a s prompt, coming from w i d e spre a d c r it i c is m from fellow media and

the public,” NUJP Davao City chairperson Jesse Casalda said. “But we should not just stop there. We journalists and the public should demand that more steps should be done to make media free from intimidation, coercion and unfair treatment,” he added. Casalda mentioned incidents in t he p ast when journalists were

“ v i c t i m s” of p o l i c e’s rough action. He mentioned in 2013 that a throng of police officers used their shields to push out Philippine Daily Inquirer photojournalist Karlos Manlupig away from covering a dispersal of Typhoon Pablo survivors barricading a government office. Then there was the recent incident last Februar y when Pinoy Weekly/ Kilab Multimedia photographer was hit in the head in the midst of a police dispersal of farmer rallyists. “We, journalists, have

seen the quality of the city’s law enforcement agency and the whole Davao City police personnel who treats the media in the same manner they treat arrested suspects and criminals. You can call this irresponsible treatment, insensitivity, arrogance or disrespect,” he said. He reminded Danao not to dismiss journalists covering the police beat, especially at this time the city is hit with three high profile murders in three weeks that include lawyer Emmanuel Acuña, and businessmen Ramon

Recent ILO statistics showed that Bukidnon is among five provinces in the country that employ children as laborers, having about 2,000 children and youth between 9 and 17 years old engaged in laborious works within sugarcane plantations, corn and rice fields. Hence, World Vision, through ABK3 LEAP project, provides educational assistance to schoolchildren, geared towards eliminating child-labor. ABK3 LEAP is a special project funded by the Unites States Department of Labor which aims to reduce child labor in the sugarcane areas in the Philippines.

and community traditions. Among the basic rights the IPs will continue to enjoy in the Bangsamoro territory are the right to their native titles and/or fusaka inged (Teduray word for ancestral domain), right to indigenous customs and traditions, right to their justice systems, right to indigenous political structures, right to an equitable share in revenues from utilization of resources in their ancestral lands, right to free and prior informed consent, right to political participation in the Bangsamoro Government, right to basic services, right to freedom of choice as to their identity. Right to Self-Determination The proposed BBL also specifically provides for the “preservation of Bangsamoro Cultural Heritage [which] includes the history, culture, arts, tradition and the rich cultural heritage of the indigenous peoples of the Bangsamoro”; and the creation of the Tribal University System “to address the higher educational needs of the indigenous cultural communities in the region.” It also provides the “right to self-governance and selfdetermination” of the IPs, “including respect for the integrity of values, practices, and institutions.” If they so desired, IP communities can create their own LGU through a law passed by the Parliament. “The Bangsamoro Parliament may likewise create appropriate local government units in the areas inhabited predominantly by indigenous peoples.” The Office or Ministry for the Indigenous Peoples will also be established to develop and implement the Bangsamoro programs for the IPs. Other basic rights the IPs will enjoy are the right to life and to inviolability of one’s person and dignity, right to freedom and expression of religion and beliefs, right to equal opportunity and non-discrimination in social and economic activity and the public service, regardless of class, creed, disability, gender and ethnicity; right to establish cultural and religious associations; right to freedom from religious, ethnic and sectarian harassment. The IPs will also continue to enjoy their customary rights and traditions: “customs, beliefs and traditions of the people in the Bangsamoro are recognized, protected and guaranteed.” The Bangsamoro government guarantees the adoption of measures “to ensure mutual respect and protection of the distinct beliefs, customs and traditions” of the peoples in the territory; and guarantees the peoples the freedom from any form of discrimination on account of creed, religion, ethnic origin, parentage or sex. The IPs will also be rep-

resented in the BTA. In the Interim Cabinet, there will be an Indigenous Peoples Affairs office and in the hiring process for the Bangsamoro Government, gender and ethnic balance is of paramount importance. “Parliament may create an appropriate office or ministry for IPs, which shall be part of the Bangsamoro Cabinet,” the proposed BBL said. In the B angsamoro Parliament, the IPs have 2 reserved seats, whose occupants will be selected pursuant to customary laws and indigenous processes. An IP representative will also sit in the Council of Leaders. Justice System “The justice system in the Bangsamoro shall give primary consideration to Shari’ah and customary rights and traditions of the indigenous peoples in the Bangsamoro.” The BBL also guarantees that the IPs can fully exercise their traditional/tribal justice system, a justice system that is appropriate for the IPs as defined by them. For this, the establishment of the Office for Tradition/Tribal Justice System is ensured. The IPs are also guaranteed their full participation in the “formulation, implementation and evaluation of policies related to the strengthening of the tribal justice system.” Conflicting parties of the IPs will also have the freedom to choose an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). The proposed BBL also guarantees the “recognition of indigenous structures or systems which promote peace, law and order” as well as “institutional support for these structures and systems.” Natural Resources IP communities within the Bangsamoro territory will also preferential rights in the exploitation, development and utilization (EDU) of natural resources within their ancestral domain covered by a native title as well as enjoy equitable share in the revenues from the EDU of these natural resources. Of course, the EDU of these natural resources must have the IPs free and prior informed consent (FPIC). On mining, especially in the EDU of fossil fuels and uranium, the draft BBL provides that “preferential rights” are given “to qualified citizens who are bonafide inhabitants of the Bangsamoro. The IPs will also have the right to regulate small-scale mining “to ensure that the ecological balance, safety and health, and the interests of affected communities and indigenous people, among others, are duly protected and safeguarded.” For natural resources found in the Sulu Sea and the Moro Gulf, the IPs are guaranteed protection of their traditional fishing grounds as well as enjoy the benefits from the EDU of the resources found therein.

Biblical reflection

Bro. Edcel L. Closas

Follow Special Gospel of the day: Matthew4:18-22(June 20, 2014-Friday) Matthew 4:18-22-And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And he said unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. And they straightway left [their] nets, and followed him. And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James [the son] of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them. And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him: This gospel reminds us to follow Jesus without “fear” and hesitation like His disciples. This is contrary to the persons whom Jesus invited to work in the kingdom of God. In Luke 9:59-62-and he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God. And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house. And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God. How about you, are you serving God? Take note, it is not easy to help in building the kingdom of God here on earth: Printing paid by: Neneth - Bobong Balino- Dr. Edith, PhDTony Jordan - CDO.
