Remembering Ninoy’s Legacy
MANILA,8/12/2013 (Xin-hua) - Philippine remittances
in the rst half rose 6.2 per-cent on year to $11.8 billionon steady global demand for skilled Filipino workers, thelocal central bank said today.The sustained expansionin personal remittances dur-ing the rst half of 2013 was boosted largely by the 5.1 percent growth in remittanceows from land-based over-seas Filipino workers withwork contracts of one year or more. Remittance ows fromsea- based workers and land- based workers with short-termcontracts grew by 7.5 percent.Most of the remittancescame from the United States,Saudi Arabia, the UnitedKingdom, the United ArabEmirates, Singapore, Canada,and Japan.
Latest data from the PhilippineOverseas Employment Administra-tion (POEA) showed that the number of workers deployed overseas in 2012increased by 6.8 percent to 1,802,031
GMA News | MANILA,8/15/2013 -- Immigrationauthorities on Wednesdaystopped 21 overseas Filipinoworkers from leaving the Ninoy Aquino InternationalAirport (NAIA) as they wereallegedly victims of a humantrafcking syndicate.Immigration Ofcer-in-Charge Siegfred Mison saidthat the alleged victims wereintercepted at the NAIA 2terminal when they presentedquestionable travel docu-ments.Mison said it appearedfrom secondary inspectionof the passengers that theywere undocumented overseasFilipino workers disguised astourists.This was the latest case of human trafcking encountered by the Bureau of Immigrationat the NAIA.Last August 7, 12 pas-sengers were prevented from boarding a ight to Singapore.The passengers had presentedvisas and plane tickets whichshowed that their nal desti-nation was Dubai, where, theyclaimed, they would be travel-ing as a group for a nine-dayvacation.However, they were barredfrom leaving after they gaveinconsistent answers whenquestioned further on the real purpose of their trip.Two days later, another group of nine passengers also bound for Singapore wasintercepted.They presented hotel reser-vations, round trip tickets andcompany IDs that turned outto be fake.One of the supposedtravelers confessed that theIDs were provided by their recruiter while two otherssaid they were previously off-loaded for attempting to leavefor Singapore without proper documents.“We reiterate our warningto these [human-trafcking]syndicates: Stop employingvarious schemes to trick our immigration ofcers into al-lowing their victims to leave because it will not work,Mison said. — DVM, GMA News

Fil-Am Assemblymember Rob Bonta bats for contribution of Filipinos to the Labor MovementUS access: Phl territory, sover-eignty to be protectedSan Diego Pathfinders Lions Club Charter Night Gala
By Virgil Yalong
Over the past weekendAssemblymember RobBonta of California’s 18thdistrict came down from hisdistrict’s cities of Oakland,Alameda, and San Leandroto address a select few of our Filipino American communi-ty here in San Diego in hopesto gain support and friend-ship with other communityorganizations and leaders.But who is Rob Bonta andwhy would he come downhere to San Diego? Histori-cally Assemblymember RobBonta is the rst FilipinoAmerican elected to Califor-nia State legislature. Lookingover his history, you couldsay that Bonta was destined toenter politics or perhaps it was just as much determinationas it was destiny. On paper,he has every credential thatany Filipino parent would be proud of their scholarly sonto have. He earned a historydegree from Yale graduat-ing with honors and a JurisDoctorate from Yale LawSchool and spent time study-ing at Oxford University inEngland. According to hiswebsite, Robbonta.com, before the assemblymember entered into public servicehis early days as a law-yer was highlighted by hisexperience working with ateam of lawyers representingthe ALCU [American CivilLiberties Union] to addressillegal stops by the Califor-nia Highway patrol based onracial proling.

| MANILA, 8/15/2013 -As negotiations began yester-day for increased presence of American troops on Philip- pine soil, ofcials assured the public there is no way such anarrangement will compromisethe country’s sovereignty.“We would like to assurethe Filipino people that your government is committed todefending and protecting thecountry’s sovereignty and ter-ritorial integrity,” said ForeignAffairs Assistant SecretaryCarlos Sorreta, who heads thePhilippine panel negotiating
A
ugust 21, 1983 was a date in our Philippine history that must not be forgotten.Who else but a well-known individual ordered the assassination of Senator Benigno S. Aquino Jr. , albeit to the present time not prosecuted? Ninoy diedfor our country. Murder charges against 25 military personnel and one civilian wasinitiated but the special court acquitted all. After Marcos was ousted, another govern-ment investigation under Cory’s administration led to a retrial and the conviction of 16military personnel, all of whom were sentenced to life imprisonment.I will compare him without an iota of successful contradiction that he was a martyr,a national hero in the likes of Dr. Jose Rizal who died for his country.When Ninoy was on his way back to Manila, he called by phone his carnal friendand personal physician Dr. Rolando M. Solis and said: “Please help my family if something drastic happens to me.” He knew what was ahead in that China Airlineight 811 to the tarmac of MIA now NIAA.We must not forget when he said: “The Filipino is worth dying for.” In his lastformal statement that he was not able to deliver, he said, "I have returned to join theranks of those struggling to restore our rights and freedom through violence. I seek noconfrontation." He was fully aware of the dangers that awaited him on his return. Hewas sensing his doom. Warned that he would either be imprisoned or killed, Aquinoanswered, "if it's my fate to die by an assassin's bullet, so be it. But I cannot be petri-ed by inaction, or fear of assassination, and therefore stay in the side..."
His death left a lasting legacy as a man of the hour, who committed to help the Filipino people to regain their lostfreedom and he did share their struggle to the limits of their human capabilities. He went home to save our peoplefrom the continued Marcos rule for he considered that the Philippines as a nation is one of the remaining bastions of democracy in the Asian continent and that the image at that time was fading in the horizon.
