Duterte scoring actual gains for Philippine sovereignty’
Helen Flores (The Philippine Star) - July 28, 2018 - 12:00am
MANILA, Philippines — While President Duterte appears to be pro-China and “defeatist” based on his public pronouncements on the West Philippine Sea, his administration has actually taken concrete action to protect the country’s sovereignty in disputed waters, an expert said.

Lucio Blanco Pitlo, a research fellow at the Asia Pacific Pathways to Progress Foundation, cited the first high-level official visit to Philippine-claimed features, the long-delayed construction projects on the area and a record-high military budget under Duterte’s watch, among his reasons.

“The President has scored symbolic, actual and enduring gains in his two years in office that surpass those of his predecessors,” Pitlo said in a July 25 commentary titled “Duterte’s Underappreciated Foreign Policy Gains,” which appeared on the website of the Center for Strategic and International Studies.




Pitlo mentioned the visit of a high-level government delegation led by Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana to the Kalayaan (Spratlys) Islands which, according to him, the other claimants that include Vietnam and China have yet to attempt. In April 2017, Lorenzana and other military and government officials set foot on Pag-asa (Thitu), the country’s largest occupied feature in the West Philippine Sea.

He said the Duterte administration has undertaken major improvements in facilities and structures in Kalayaan, which previous administrations wanted to do but hesitated out of concern on how other claimants would react.

Pitlo added that in May this year, construction works started on lighthouses in Pag-asa, Patag (Flat), Likas (West York) and Kota (Loatia) Islands to improve safety of navigation. Seven new buildings on Pag-asa are also being constructed to improve living conditions.

He also cited the “Second Horizon Modernization Program” (2018-2022) of the Armed Forces of the Philippines as among the steps the administration has taken.

“While the President has emphasized dispute management, it is erroneous to say that he is not investing in the country’s external defense,” Pitlo pointed out, citing the Duterte government’s approved defense budget of $5.6 billion in contrast to the previous administration’s more than the $1.7 billion allotment.

Duterte also moved the purchase of some items, including submarines, originally earmarked for the “Third Horizon” (2023-2028) to ensure these will be procured before his term ends.

The President, Pitlo said, approved the acquisition of two squadrons of multi-role fighter aircraft and a frigate and has included in the priority defense articles to be purchased long-range patrol aircraft, drones and offshore patrol vessels.

He also said that true to its policy of being “friends to all and enemies to none,” the government is also diversifying arms suppliers and has been receiving arms donations from China, Russia, the US and South Korea.

Military exercises with the US continue despite Duterte’s anti-US tirades, he added.

“These actions show that assessing Duterte’s foreign policy by focusing on his rhetoric alone can lead to erroneous conclusions. The controversy generated by his remarks often distracts attention from meaningful and concrete measures being taken to reinforce the country’s position in the West Philippine Sea,” Pitlo concluded.



One step Backward two step Forward
:D

Little people, big problems: The ongoing struggle of Filipino dwarves

Image

Coconuts Manila wrote:
Glorian Tomen is a government employee and activist. She also happens to be a little person, or someone who is of short stature because of a medical condition.

Her main advocacy work involves standing up for the rights of other little people (LP) in the Philippines, and she says the country still has a long way to go when it comes to awareness on the topic.

She pointed to a February episode of the TV show Rated K as an example.

“There’s really a lack of awareness, like the use of the “M Word,” by some people/TV networks when referring to people with dwarfism. They are still not aware that it is not acceptable,” she told Coconuts Manila in Filipino on Wednesday.

The “M Word” she was referring to was of course “midget,” long-considered a pejorative term.

While the story was about how a group of little people were able to overcome their struggles by working as bodyguards, Tomen still took offense with the word choice.

“I wrote a letter to the staff of the show and to Ms. Korina [Sanchez, the host] about that episode, but got no response at all,” she said.

But the struggles of Filipino little people go beyond inappropriate name-calling.

Little people encounter hardships wherever they are in the world — from not having access to proper facilities, to a lack of representation in the media — but according to Tomen, it’s even worse in the Philippines.

“As of now, for me, the situation here is worse than in other countries,” she said. “Because when I attended the International Dwarfism Leadership Summit in Berlin, Germany, last October 2016, I realized that the Philippines is one of the few countries that has no concrete programs for people of short stature.”

According to Tomen, there is still no law that directly protects little people and that they are simply considered as “people with disabilities (PWD).”

“[S]ince we are also considered PWDs, a PWD ID is being accorded, which entitles one to 20% discount on meals, medicines and transportation,” she said.

While this is helpful, it doesn’t exactly address the major problems Filipino little people have had to deal with for years — most critically, unemployment.

“Most of [the] LPs, I’ve met are marginalized. Not all are professionals and educated, so they are forced to take on menial and low-paying jobs,” Tomen said.

Because of the lack of employment options, Tomen said some resort to jobs where they are objectified. “[S]ome (of my fellow LPs) even allow themselves to be used as objects of amusement,” she said.

Cut to Ringside, a bar in Makati City’s red light district where “midget boxing” is the main attraction. There, little people are paid to box each other inside a ring at the center of the bar, a spectacle clearly played for laughs with the customers.

Little people have long been used as attractions, be it in places like Ringside or carnivals. Some, though, end up working in the entertainment industry, often times as comedians.

Take the actor Ernesto dela Cruz (aka Weng Weng), the subject of the 2013 documentary The Search for Weng Weng. He appeared in various comedic films in the 1980s, first in cameo roles, but also as the lead of action-comedies For Y’ur Height Only and The Impossible Kid.

When Coconuts spoke with Dagul, he acknowledged how difficult it is to find a job, which is why he does not see anything wrong with working at places like Ringside.

“It’s really difficult to get a job for people like me. It’s really difficult. Any job is alright to venture into,” he said.

Even though progress is slow, Tomen said that she remains hopeful about the future.

“Yes, of course, I’m still hopeful. If it doesn’t happen now, hopefully in the coming years. Step by step. For now, awareness first.”


yung mga gustong magvolunteer diyan, it's about time para mag-ingay for a worthy cause....impernes pwede palang magapply for PWD card ang mga little persons :shock:
