In solidarity with Ericson Acosta and other political prisoners who are currently on hunger strike/fast, the Concerned Artist of the Philippines (CAP), in cooperation with The Camerawalls, launches today the song “Awit ng mga Detenidong Pulitikal.”

The song depicts plight of political prisoners, who they are and what they are fighting for. The CAP particularly calls for the release of Ericson Acosta, artist, poet, thespian, musician and writer who was arrested on February 13, 2011, while doing research on human rights research.

The price hikes next week bring us ever closer to the highest ever price of P60 per liter recorded in 2008. And Malacanang is still not taking any decisive action to rein in oil prices and give the people relief … No wonder the term ‘noynoying’ has caught on. —Renato Reyes, Jr., BAYAN

Ayon sa, ang Noynoying ay: ang pagiging tanga at nakatungaga sa panahon na dapat may ginagawa ka. Kung wala ka nga namang ginagawa sa kabila ng maraming kailangan gawin, tiyak na maihahalintulad ka sa nakaupong presidente ngayon ng bansa. At kung ikaw ang presidente ng bansa, ‘wag ka nang magtaka kung mapuna ka kasi hanap ng tao ay pagbabago.

Start in our own backyard, Free the 43

Inquirer.Net But while Mr. Aquino seems to be passionate in working for the release of Suu Kyi, he does not seem to be very concerned about the detention for the past nine months by government forces of 43 health workers … From all indications, the arrest of the 43 was highly irregular and unjust. The President himself said a review of the case showed that the soldiers who raided the resthouse had an arrest warrant for only one person who was not even at the resort at the time.

Yes, it’s not just Aung San Suu Kyi of Burma who should be freed. Let’s start in our own backyard. “Free the 43!”The Philippine Daily Inquirer Nov 9, 2010 Editorial Photo from
