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.

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.

The quake drill in Manila is in preparation for a quake brought about by the possible movement of the Manila Trench and the West Valley Fault. Experts fear that a major quake caused by this movement could result in the isolation of the capital due to collapsed structures, and the loss of countless number of lives.

Public hanging: Manila’s homeless and the Philippines' dirty linen

The new street-homeless are everywhere – in the streets, on sidewalks, along the seawall of Manila Bay, and outside idle lands, abandoned buildings – as ubiquitous as their dirty laundry, left to hang dry, in full view of the public eye.
The skyline of Metro Manila is rising. The construction of high-rise residential condominiums is in full swing. Real estate is again booming.
But homelessness is ironically increasing, too. Metro Manila holds the dubious record of having the largest homeless population than any other city in the world. Over 3 million, or one-fourth of the total urban population in Metro Manila, are living in informal settlements.

Binondo, Manila

Binondo is an enclave in Manila primarily populated by ethnic Chinese living in the Philippines. It is the oldest Chinatown in the world, established in 1594. Historically, this was where the Spanish permitted converted sangleys, their indigenous Filipino wives, and their mixed-race descendants, the mestizos de sangley or Chinese mestizos, to reside. Similarly, Parían, an area near Intramuros, was where the Spanish first restricted unconverted Chinese immigrants. They allowed sangley settlement at Parían because it was within the range of Intramuros' cannons, and they felt they could control any uprising from the labourers.

The waterworld of Artex - Malabon documentary
Water, water everywhere: The irony of Artex

Life in the compound is idyllic. The afternoon sun casts a golden glow on the homes as a gentle breeze cools the surroundings.

There is only one problem: The entire compound is permanently flooded. Ironically, the 200 families living there do not have direct access to clean water. They have to row boats to get their daily water supply.
Sanitation is also another problem. Many families have to share a public toilet with neighbors or strangers. Because of poor access to clean water and sanitation, the children of Artex are at permanent risk of contracting diseases such as diarrhea and infections. Malnourished children and infants are even more vulnerable to such illnesses.
Artex is just one example of many communities at risk. But this community is not in a remote corner of the country. It's in the middle of a highly populated urban metropolis – where 5-star hotels with hot water running 24/7 coexist with homes that lack basic toilets.
One might think that such problems are only prevalent among remote rural areas. The same issues, however, are also experienced in urban cities like those in Metro Manila.
“The Waterworld of Artex” was produced by San Sel and Tep Chansophea, Rappler interns from the Royal University of Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Preserving the tradition of heirloom rice in the Cordilleras

by Jodesz Gavilan Posted on 10/04/2014

Heirloom rice varieties go beyond the usual type of rice we see on our dinner tables. They represent the culture of the Cordilleras and have become the lifeblood of their farming tradition.
According to the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), heirloom rice varieties are more flavorful, aromatic, and have exceptional nutritional value when cooked.
The heirloom rice varieties, the product of the terraces, are considered to be an important fixture in the lives of farmers in several areas in CAR.
Staying true to the name, these varieties of rice are passed from generation to generation and are grown by families in their small ancestral lands.

Sagada Panag-apoy ritual

from preparation week to the evening NOV 1.

Every first day of November, Sagadians gather at the cemetery to remember their departed loved ones. But instead of lighting traditional candles, they use woods of old pine trees locally called “saeng“, a flammable wood from old pine trees, to create bonfires on the graves previously blessed by a priest, on the tombs of their deceased loved ones. They call it “panag-apoy”, a tradition long been practiced in Sagada, Mountain Province.

Discover Palawan

Palawan is 1,768 islands of pristine white beaches, dramatic rock formations, secret coves and underground mysteries. An untamed land, a nature lover's paradise and an adventurer's dream: Palawan certainly lives up to its image as the last frontier. The island province has been declared a nature sanctuary of the world and for good reason. It is wrapped in a mantel of rainforests, outstanding dive sites, majestic mountains, primeval caves and shimmering beaches. It bursts with exotic flora and fauna and is surrounded by a coral shelf that abounds with varied and colourful marine life. The long narrow strip of the main island, located southwest of Manila, is around 425 kilometres long and 40 kilometres at its widest. On both sides of a backbone of tall mountain ranges, an irregular coastline meanders in intervals of vertical limestone cliff and sweeping white sand. This unique topography provides a wealth of diverse.

Culion Island, a former leper colony in Philippines

&

The Culion Leper Colony Coinage (Palawan Philippine Coins).

From 1/2 centavo to 1 peso, year 1913 to 1930. Between 1902 and 1904, the Commission of Public Health supervised the establishment of a leper colony on Culion Island in the China Sea, some 150 miles South-East of Manila. A decision to provide the colony with its own coins, valid only for use on the island, was delayed until 1913 when the first series, made by a private firm, Frank & Co., in Manila was introduced. Later issues were struck at the Manila Mint after it went into operation in 1920. In all, there were six dated issues and a total of 16 varieties made for the Culion leper colony. Two have special features which call for note. The probability is that the half centavo, issued only in 1913, was not put into circulation. By unofficial report 2,000 of the 1930 one-centavo pieces were minted. However, none are known to exist in any collection and it seems unlikely that any were actually issued. (Look ref. HERE)

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

Bohol Tourism general & Eco Tourism

A few years ago, tourism in the island of Bohol was seasonal as the industry was yet starting to develop. But today, Bohol's tourism and is already an all-year-round industry. The island is richly blessed with so much natural, historical, and cultural beauties and wonders which attracted tourists from every corner of the globe. For the past 2 to 3 years, the industry has been growing rapidly such that the small domestic airport in its capital city could no longer conviniently accommodate the ever increasing influx of tourist arrivals in this paradise island. But hopefully soon, with the completion of the new Bohol Airport project, the problem of congestion will be solved and the influx of tourist arrivals is expected to greatly increased even more. If Bohol will be properly managed by its leaders and successors, it has the potential to develop like Singapore, considering that Bohol has a strategic geographical location and has very rich natural resources.

Hundreds of hills fill the horizon, symmetrical, and in the dry season, chocolate colored. Unfortunately these limestone hills are not as tasty as the chocolate kisses that inspired their name. The name comes from the deep brown color of the dried grass in summer. Besides their unusual color, the hills are interesting for their regular and symmetric shape. There are approximately 1500 of these remarkable hills in the Bohol province of the Philippines. There are several bizarre legends about the origins of these hills, all involving giants.

Ancient Visayan Goldworking

The many different kinds of large and small beads, all of what they call filigree work here.. is clear evidence that they did careful, delicate and beautiful work even better in their antiquity than now since all the ancient gold work is of higher gold content and craftsmanship than what is being made now... [like the kamagi], a piece of jewelry of greater value and curiosity than could be expected of a people apparently so crude and uncivilized (Alcina 1668a, 3:121). As Alcina said century later, "One who knows how to make them today is hard to find." Source: Barangay: Sixteenth-Century Philippine Culture and Society by William Henry Scott

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

Who are the Visayan?

It is never too late to expand one's knowledge of the past. Embarrassing as it may be to the government that the Bisaya it has tirelessly repressed is indeed descended from the great Sri Vishaya, the pursuit of historical truth justifies itself. If not, then for the sake of our young who can only take so much of self-serving and subjective official Philippine history.

Heeding the wise advice of St. Augustine of Hippo that in every house there should be a library (Possidius 31, 6,8), the Augustinian Friars of the Basilica put up a library in one of the corners of the convent.

Cebuanos finally got their first glimpse of piped water when the Buhisan Dam, the only one outside Manila, was first tested at the reservoir in Tisa, Labangon, on December 27, 1911. While the availability of potable water was still about two months away, it was poignant that the trial, which drenched many a Cebuano, came on Holy Innocents Day. For hundreds of children and infants had succumbed to another round of the cholera epidemic the previous year.

Feast of Blessed Pedro Calungsod

Dawn procession held Saturday, March 31 2012 Cebu City, as Cebu celebrates the feast of Blessed Pedro Calungsod.

The feast of Blessed Pedro Calungsod is celebrated every 2nd day of April, the anniversary of his martyrdom. If the date falls within Holy Week or Easter Week, the feast is observed on the Saturday that immediately precedes Passion/Palm Sunday. If April 2 falls on a Sunday of Lent or on a Sunday of Easter, the feast is celebrated on April 1. We do not celebrate the feast of Blessed Pedro in Holy Week or Easter Week, or on a Sunday of Lent or of Easter because on these days, we have a more important celebration – the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ, otherwise known as the Paschal Mystery, which is at the heart of our Christian Faith. Instead, we celebrate the feast of Blessed Pedro on the Saturday before Passion/Palm Sunday because of its significance: Blessed Pedro was martyred on April 2, 1672 which was the Saturday before Passion/Palm Sunday of that year. In the case of April 2 falling on a Sunday of Lent or Easter, the nearest Saturday is April 1.

Once nearly wiped out by a landslide, a town in the Philippines finds a new way to manage natural disasters. More than 70 percent of St. Bernard and the surrounding area are highly vulnerable to flash floods, tsunamis, storms, and landslides, but there was no warning system in place until a landslide killed over 1,000 people in 2006. Now, local residents, government organizations, and NGOs have worked together to set up an early warning system that uses both indigenous knowledge and state of the art technology.

Doubts arise over crucial Philippine autonomy law after rebel clash

Work to set up an autonomous Muslim region in the Philippines to end a 45-year insurgency has been suspended and may be abandoned altogether because of a clash in which more than 50 people were killed, legislators said on Wednesday. A top official described the clash between police and rebels on Sunday, which shattered a three-year ceasefire, as a "misencounter" during a bid to arrest two militants who had taken refuge with Moro Islamic Liberation Front fighters.
The rebels, operating in the south of the largely Roman Catholic country, have agreed to disarm in exchange for an autonomous government.

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.

San Agustin is blessed with 24 islands and islets scattered all over Lianga Bay, which faces the Pacific Ocean. The group of islands is called Britania, named after its barangay.

Most of the islands are uninhabited with minimal or no vegetation. But all have one thing in common: they are surrounded with crystal clear waters.
