List of political parties in the Philippines. Political parties in the Philippines are of diverse ideologies and are plentiful in number.

The Philippines has a multi-party system with numerous political parties, in which no one party often has a chance of gaining power alone, and parties must work with each other to form coalition governments. There are two types of parties in the Philippines and these are: major parties, who correspond typically to traditional political parties, and minor parties or party-list organizations, who rely on the party-list system to win Congressional seats.

Politics of the Philippines

The politics of the Philippines takes place in an organized framework of a presidential, representative, and democratic republic whereby the president is both the head of state and the head of government within a pluriform multi-party system.

The Position of the Catholic Church in Political and Social Relations of the Philippines
by Cheryl Burkhardt

Since the arrival of Spanish colonists in the Philippines, the role of Catholicism has remained strong in various elements of Philippine culture. Despite the claim of the government that there exists separation between church and state, the Catholic Church still holds influence in political action that has significant consequences for much of the population. Starting with a history of colonization, this paper establishes several areas of Philippine culture and policy in which the Church remains influential still today.

The Church's Role in Peacebuilding in the Philippines

Catholic churches in Mindanao are working actively to transform conflict and build peace. Churches are promoting interreligious dialogue, implementing peace education programs, assisting conflict victims, declaring peace zones, and contributing to peace advocacy with the government and other civil society groups.

Revolutionaries or Terrorists

The Philippines is seen as one of the frontlines in the War of Terror. But dubbing local armed groups terrorists seems to be making the situation worse. "We are home-grown, legitimate revolutionaries", states Comrade Oris from the New People's Army. "How can we be terrorists in our own land?" For many years, they were partners in the peace process. But -- following George W Bush's visit - they're now regarded as terrorists. Since then, levels of violence have increased. "We need to get away from these labels and go back to the pre 9/11 days of engagement", states peace process advisor, Paul Clifford. "What is it these people want?" According to one report, the most common dominator of rebel villages is the lack of a local school.

Filipino Gangs

By Keisuke Nagoshi

The Sputnik gang is the biggest in the Philippines. It’s so enormous that it’s difficult to keep track of all the smaller, weaker branches at the bottom of its hierarchy. The lowest rangs are more like local vigilantes watching over the neighborhood while their wives and sons cheer them on.

Bahala Na Gang

is a street gang and organized crime group with origins in the Philippines. The gang was formed in the early 1940s among Filipino inmates in large and dangerous Manila correctional facilities. The literal translation of Bahala Na is come whatever may, which is used to indicate that life was hopeless and that it didn't really matter what one did if fate was against you. This value of fatalism can also be seen in the numerous tattoos original members of the Bahala Na had.

Rugby Boys

are a common group of gang of street children found in the Philippines. They are one of the most well-known poverty-afflicted people found in the slums of the Philippines. They are known for using and being addicted to a contact cement known as "Rugby" brand manufactured by Bostik (who has since added a sniffing deterrent) and other aromatic solvents to alleviate their hunger, and resulting in crime to fund their addiction.

Budol-budol is a scam principally involving a bundle (budol) of cash padded inside with sheets of paper cut in the size of money. Only the exposed sides however are real money, everything in between are plain paper cuttings.
Those who operate this type of scam are generally referred to as Budol-budol gang members. These swindlers are actually con-artists that operate in a group. They usually front an attractive lead, male or female depending on their plot, strategically set-up to disarm the potential victim and avoid suspicion at the same time. Victims of the Budol-budol gang often describe the members as sweet-talking, charismatic, and convincing. Other victims even report having been hypnotized by the group.

Cyber Sextortion

An emerging phenomenon called “sextortion,” a devious practice in which predators take advantage of webcams and the emotional vulnerability of teenagers to elicit sexual favours.
Individuals, known colloquially as “cappers,” typically meet the victim on a social media site and through flattery draws them into exposing him - or herself on a webcam. The capper then captures or records that footage without their knowledge for later blackmail of the victim.

How cybercriminals use nude videos for extortion?

Some syndicates also use nude videos to extort money from their victims. The Philippine National Police (PNP) Anti-Cybercrime Group and the Department of Justice (DOJ) gives a warning against these increasing cases of online sextortion. Published on Mar 4, 201

NO LONGER SLAVES, BUT BROTHERS AND SISTERS

Look also the article "Pope to shoppers: Don't buy products made by modern-day slaves"

His message, published by the Vatican on Wednesday, December 10, slams "the growing scourge of man's exploitation by man," an "abominable phenomenon" covering everything from forced prostitution to child soldiers and slave labour in factories.
"I think also of persons forced into prostitution, many of whom are minors, as well as male and female sex slaves... (of) women forced into marriage, those sold for arranged marriages and those bequeathed to relatives of deceased husbands," he says.
According to the 2014 Global Slavery index, published last month, nearly 36 million men, women and children are trapped in modern-day slavery, the definition of which ranges from forced marriages to people coerced into prostitution, fighting wars or manual labour like picking cotton.

The Manobo / Manuvu are a large group of Austronesian people from Mindanao. This is the Udol dance, named after the slit drum that accompanies it. The mesmering rhythm of the udol is believed to call the spirits of the deceased (fallen warriors) to show them (the dancers/performers) where their remains are so they could bring them home and have a decent burial. (daghang salamat SaiaoPinoi) The dancers provide the Udol, Utomay and the Patawagay rhythms themselves as they take turns to dance. This film was taken by anthropologist Robert Garfias in the 1960s.

In this "danon', both parties will settle the request of the girl's family , dowries and how the wedding will be done. In this second "danon" the boy's party brought with them the dowry.

Ethnic groups - Brides of Sulu - “providing a rare glimpse into a lost culture."

A flick's production history is clothed in mystery. Filipino actors and a very tropical setting - the silent film Brides of Sulu continues to confound film historians. Last Friday night, "Brides of Sulu" opened the 5th International Silent Film Festival at Shangri-la Mall. The film's main stars were 1930s matinee idols Adelina Moreno and Eduardo de Castro. It also featured other Filipino actors. James J. Gilbert narrates the story, which is introduced in a foreword as a "simple love story based upon fact and the rites, rituals and ceremonies portraying the hatred of the Mohammedan Moro for the Unbeliever is not fiction. As an authentic document of Moro life, this production is designed to instruct as well as entertain." Look more and the full description about the video HERE

Badjao 1957

A story about the Badjaos and the Tausogs, rival Muslim tribes for centuries. The Badjaos, a group of sea gypsies, ply the sea for food and for pearls. Hassan (Tony Santos), a son of the Badjao chief falls in love and marries Bala Amai (Rosa Rosal) who is a niece of Datu Tahil (Jose de Cordova), head of the Tausogs. At the urging of Bala Amai, Hassan decides to leave his tribe and join the Tausogs. Eventually, Datu Tahil learns of Hassan's expertise in finding rare pearls in the sea, thus exploiting him for his own selfish interests. Hassan and Bala Amai resist him, feeling that their self-respect have been trampled on. They decide to go back to the Badjaos and lead a more humble, but nevertheless peaceful life. The Badjaos accept them with all their hearts. An LVN classic film, largely because of shining performances by Rosa Rosal and Tony Santos. It won the award for best direction (Lamberto V. Avellana, National Artist for Theater and Film in 1976), best story (Rolf Bayer), best editing (Gregorio Carballo), and best cinematography (Mike Accion) at the 1957 Southeast Asia Film Festival held in Tokyo.

Sea Gypsies Losing Out

In the waters around the Philippines nomadic fisherfolk anchor their houseboats close together at night - some small protection against the pirates who rule the Sulu Sea. Life on the ocean spells fear, violence and hunger for the Philippines Sea Gypsies - the Badjao. They are caught between discrimination on the mainland and hardship at sea. Adding to their problems, dynamite and trawler fishing have devastated life on the coral reefs around the Philippines. Many Badjao can hardly catch enough fish to make a meal or buy diesel for their boats. This minority's culture and even existence hangs in the balance.

While so, tourism plays the important role of continuing the relevance of these wooden bikes for the Ifugao people, and in the part of the observers, having us realize the magnitude and depth of the different cultures outside of our urban backyards. – Paolo Abellanosa

Oral & Intangible Heritage - Ifugao Hudhud

The Hudhud Chants of the Ifugao

The Hudhud consists of narrative chants traditionally performed by the Ifugao community, which is well known for its rice terraces extending over the highlands of the northern island of the Philippine archipelago. It is practiced during the rice sowing season, at harvest time and at funeral wakes and rituals. Thought to have originated before the seventh century, the Hudhud comprises more than 200 chants, each divided into 40 episodes. A complete recitation may last several days.

by/Pia Ranada Published Apr 29, 2015
Far from pre-dating Spanish colonization, the iconic rice terraces may be just as old as some colonial-period churches, a team of archaeologists find. A team of scientists are set to present new findings that peg the age of the iconic rice terraces at 300 or 400 years instead of the long-assumed age of 2,000 years.

In 2001, the United Nations put the rice terraces in its list of endangered World Heritage sites. Efforts of the community, government, and private sector led to its removal from the list in 2012.

Banaue Rice Terraces

Declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995 and dubbed as the "Eight Wonder of the World," the 2,000-year-old terraces manifest the engineering skill and ingenuity of the sturdy Ifugao people, who with bare hands carved this stair-like monument out of the Cordillera mountainside.

Known for it's hanging coffins, other popular activities include spelunking, rappelling, rock climbing, and trekking to waterfalls. Me, I vote for its quiet, secluded, and relaxing appeal.

Long time ago the Tingguian and Igorot tribes  intermarried and it did not  take long enough they formed another tribe. However, both tribes had different dialects. Thus, the result of the  intermarriage resulted to one dialect derived from the “Tingguian of Abra” and  “Igorot of Cordillera” - born the “Itneg” of the newly formed tribe.

The Darangen is an ancient epic song that encompasses a wealth of knowledge about the Maranao people who live in the Lake Lanao region of Mindanao. This southernmost island of the Philippine archipelago is the traditional homeland of the Maranao, one of the country's three main Muslim groups.

Although other variations exist among the Maranao ethnic communities living in other areas, among the Maguindanao ethnic group, and Manobo groups to the Pacific Coast. The one in Lanao del Sur is considered the most definitive.

About seven hundred years ago, when Pangasinan was a kingdom, there lived a famous woman ruler in that dominion. Young, beautiful and well-educated, Princess Urduja was reputed to be a good warrior who had personally led her soldiers to the battlefields.

Princess Urduja: The Mother of Ibalois?

Have you ever heard of Princess Urduja? If your elementary teacher was like ours, she would have told you about the warrior princess who is believed to have ruled the Kingdom of Tawalisi.

Anyway, there is an ongoing debate whether Urduja ever existed and whether the Kingdom of Tawalisi really is modern day Pangasinan. Incidentally, the province of Pangasinan honors the memory of Urduja by naming its capitol the Urduja Palace and by putting up a statue in her honor.

Koreans in the Philippines

Many South Koreans living in the Philippines are attracted to the low cost of English-language education and housing, both significantly cheaper than those offered in their native South Korea. The warmer climate is yet another motivating factor for the recent surge in migration. The Philippines is also a popular destination for retired South Koreans on fixed pensions.

The Filipino government actively promotes the settlement of South Korean retirees in the country because of the potential lucrative opportunities for the local economy.

Visayas: Island of the Painted - The pintados

Visayan Tattoo culture The Pintados (The Painted ones) Visayan: Batukan or Batikan is a term applied to the inhabitants of the Visayas during the Spanish colonization of the Philippines. The name was given to them because they painted their bodies with red clay - or, as some writers say, on account of their being tattooed. Both men and women wear their hair long and fastened in a knot on the crown of the head. The men tattoo their entire bodies with very beautiful figures, using small pieces of iron dipped in ink. This ink incorporates itself with the blood, and the marks are indelible. Source: Barangay: Sixteenth-Century Philippine Culture and Society by William Henry Scott

 Oral & Intangible Heritage - The Darangen - Kapagondoga - Central of Maranao.

Kapagondoga. An excerpt from the Darangen. Chanted by Madame Limpasunang Dagalangit Lomala of Minitupad. The Darangen's origins are placed around the 7th century, and the chant narrates historic accounts, myths and legends, as well as themes of customary law (adat), traditional politics, love, courtship and manners central to the Maranao. Originally incorporating indigenous as well as Hindu-Buddhist elements, the content of the Darangen also came to incorporate several Islamic themes by the 14th century. The epic itself can only be chanted by Onor (master artists) who were trained in proper technique and etiquette of singing in the ancient language of the Maranao court, and have committed the whole epic to memory. The Darangen consists of 17 cycles and around 73,000 verses, and was transcribed into 3 volumes. It has been designated as one of 43 Masterpieces of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. This film was originally released by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) of the Philippines in 2005.

Pagdiwata Ritual at Manila Contemporary

Pagdiwata ritual is a family affair and is the focal point of Tagbanua life. Its activities embody their traditional sentiments and contribute to their persistence. It is also used for securing seance when people are sick especially when treated by their relatives as a medium. It includes offering of wine, nuts, wax, food and many other commodities. Pagdiwata is also an offering to celebrate a bountiful harvest or a successful hunting trip. Among all functionaries, the Babaylan (high priest/priestess) is the most powerful and influential. Folk tradition dictates that disrespect for the Babaylan will result in severe punishment by the supernaturals. Activities during the ritual:
a. Planting
b. War dance/ hunting
c. Harvesting
d. Tarek
e. Pagsuldan - the most prominent feature of the Pagdiwata wherein the Babaylan has possessed the spirits being called for.

Healing Ethnic Ritual of The existence of primitive ethnic doctors here in Balbalan, popularly known by them as "mandadawak" is a living testimony that Balbalan tribes were once headhunters. Mandadawak play vital role then in the glorification of tribal warriors. To these days mandadawak are active and still occupies a high ladder in the leadership of the tribes of Balbalan not anymore for her services to headhunters but for those who are affected with illness that could no longer be cured in hospitals. They also performed other customary rituals such as ethnic baptismal, customary weddings, honoring the dead, thanksgiving, among others. This video portrays one of the mandadawak of the tribe of Balbalan in "curing" illnesses. The mandadawak has to, first of all, call the attention of a spirit to help her cure the disease. Following scenes were the acts of mandadawak appeasing the spirit to give her power over the other spirit who cause the sickness of her subject. The last scenes were the act of mandadawak portraying that she already captured the devil spirit using her body as the medium. The mandadawak was joined by relatives and neighbors of the ill-infected subject giving some donations probably for the services of the mandadawak.

This video was captured during a stage presentation about mandadawak during the centennial year celebration of Balbalan.

Zamboanga 1936 - Early Film art - LOOK the film which tells the story of the past

ubeIceCreamCone wrote on Jul 5, 2009: "Zamboanga" was directed by my grandfather, Marvin Gardner in his native Philippines in 1936. His screen name was Eduardo De Castro. Thought lost forever, it was found in 2003? by Philippine filmmaker Nick de Ocampo at the US Library of Congress. (The copy came from Finland, hence the subtitles.) It stars Fernando Poe, Sr., the father of Fernando Poe, Jr., Philippine actor and presidential candidate. It is the oldest Filipino feature film known to exist. "Zamboanga" came at a crucial moment in the history of filmmaking in the Philippines. It showed the picturesque sea and the captivating landscape and with warring tribes and a kidnapped maiden to hook the audience’s attention," Deocampo reveals.

Quezon's Code of Citizenship and Ethics

On August 19, 1939, the occasion of his 61st birthday, President Manuel L. Quezon issued Executive Order No. 217 that prescribed a set of civic and ethical precepts collectively known as the Code of Citizenship and Ethics to be taught in all schools in the Philippines.

The list, a product of a committee composed of leading jurists and political luminaries organized by the President, would eventually be turned into a 71-page volume, complete with historical anecdotes and references to the virtues Filipinos have displayed throughout the years. In a letter to the President printed as a preface to the book, the Committee wrote, “The life of a nation depends upon the moral and civic virtue of its citizens. Now, more than ever, when nations, great and small, are on the verge of collapse do we realize this fundamental truth.” Video published on Aug 18, 2014

popularly known as the 1987 Constitution, is the constitution or the supreme law of the Republic of the Philippines. It was enacted in 1987, during the administration of President Corazon C. Aquino.
Philippine constitutional law experts recognise three other previous constitutions as having effectively governed the country — the 1935 Commonwealth Constitution, the 1973 Constitution, and the 1986 Freedom Constitution. Two further constitutions were drafted and adopted during two short-lived war-time governments, by the revolutionary forces during the Philippine Revolution with Emilio Aguinaldo as President and by the occupation forces during the Japanese Occupation of the Philippines during World War II with José P. Laurel as President. Published on Jul 18, 2014 This video is targeted to blind users.

International Humanitarian Law (IHL)

Customary international law is made up of rules that come from "a general practice accepted as law" and that exist independent of treaty law. Customary international humanitarian law (IHL) is of crucial importance in today’s armed conflicts because it fills gaps left by treaty law in both international and non-international conflicts and so strengthens the protection offered to victims.

Look also "The Geneva Conventions and their Additional Protocols" HERE and the Video

International humanitarian law: a universal code

Is international humanitarian law up to the job of protecting the people affected by modern-day armed conflicts? This film looks in turns at the poor security conditions frequently confronting the civilian population, the fact that people often have to flee their homes, hostage-taking, the dangers posed by cluster munitions, and the work of preventing and, punishing war crimes. It tells us the basic rules of the law and reminds us that respecting them is everyone's responsibility.

Authorities either underestimate the threat that technology-related violence presents or do not have a full understanding of how the pervasiveness of such violence causes psychological and emotional distress.
According to Take back the Tech, a collaborative campaign against on-line forms of violence, about 95% of on-line harassment in the form of text, images and videos are targeted at women.
“A liberal interpretation of RA 9262 can include electronic violence as a form of psychological abuse,” said Claire Padilla, executive director of legal NGO, EngendeRights.
But one limitation of RA 9262 is that it is predicated on a dating relationship. You must be dating, having sex with or married to the perpetrator.
