Balangkas ng Paglaban

Sabi nila, ang karanasan ang pinakamahusay na guro. Kung gayon, ang mga nasa laylayan ay dalubhasa na sa iba’t ibang uri ng karahasang ipinapataw ng estado.

Salita ay sandata

Nakaligpit nang muli ang mga barong, baro at saya. Setyembre na at ang ideya ng wikang dumadaloy sa bawat Pilipino ay nagmistulang alon—humahampas lamang, saka muling babalik sa karagatan palayo sa atin.

State of Terror: Killing the Young in Duterte’s War on Drugs

Kian had precise habits. He would rise before sunup to arrange biscuits and Zest-O outside their store. For breakfast, he would eat a pack of chips while listening to blaring rap songs, or share it with friends idling by his storefront. He was a friend to everyone, regaling them with jokes and stories exchanged through his window. Rain or shine, you could always trust Kian to open for business at the usual time. So in the morning of August 17, when the store’s window panels remained shut, his neighbors could only sigh, worried that something bad had befallen the kid.

The wheel of (mis)fortune

There is a succession of events called history, and the cycle just goes on. History, however, does not repeat itself; it rolls on like a wheel trampling on the surface of our rough existence in hopes of smoothening it. It happens within us, in our families, and in our society.

In celebration of the Birth Centennial of National Artist for Literature Nick Joaquin, Fathers and Sons / Mga Ama, Mga Anak (Filipino translation by Virgilio Almario and Jose Lacaba) is staged by the UP Playwright’s Theatre (UPPT). During the Marcos dictatorship, he came up with the manuscript for the play Fathers and Sons—which is adapted from his short story “Three Generations.”

Pamantasan ng Bayan

Sa mahigit isang siglong pag-iral, naging pandayan ang UP ng ilan sa pinakatanyag na lingkod-bayan: mga taong naging instrumento sa pagguhit ng kasaysayan at pagbabago ng lipunan. Ngayon, nananatiling mandato sa mga bagong Iskolar ng Bayan na gamitin ang lahat ng natutunan upang maglingkod sa sambayanan, lalo na sa mga inaapi at mga nasa laylayan.

Paglilinis

TULA

Ngayong gabi ang huling lamay. Aalisin ko ang kahapon na naglambitin sa kisame. Hindi na maaalala, dahil lumot na lamang sa alala ang babara sa lababo.

Sa Piling ni Nanay*

sa piling ni nanay4

Makalipas ang 11 taon, hindi pa rin sila natatagpuan, gayundin ang mailap na hustisya. Ito ang kwento ng mga naglaho, dinahas, at sapilitang winala ng gobyerno. Ito ang naratibo ng paglaban—ang patuloy na paglalahad ng kwento ng mga desaparecidos, mula mismo sa kanilang mga ina.
