DISCLAIMER: Most of the information here came from personal accounts of people inside Marawi City.

PLEASE signal boost this! I know there are many things happening right now, especially with what happened with Ariana’s concert. But this is really scary and there’s not enough information on it.

Marawi Siege update (from what I’ve heard in the news):

  • 42 teachers that were held hostage have been rescued by government troops.
  • No news yet about the status of the priest and other civilian parishioners (2 of which were students) who were taken from St. Mary Church.
  • A teacher from Mindanao State University has also been held hostage.
  • The spreading news about the 3 beheaded teachers also remained unconfirmed.
  • Marawi residents are now being evacuated from the area.
  • Whole Mindanao is under Martial Law for 60 days.
  • 2 soldiers and 1 police officer were killed and 12 more are wounded from Marawi clash (please pray for them and their families). 
  • Davao is no longer on lockdown but is under “hold-and-secure-situation”. 
  • Metro Manila is now on full alert as well. 
  • Marawi City Jail, St. Mary’s Church, Ninoy Aquino School and Dansalan College were all burned down by the militants
  • 107 inmates were freed from the City Jail.

 Additional note: Marawi was NOT attacked by ISIS but by local terrorist groups Maute and Abu Sayyaf. Maute group is known supporter of ISIS but no confirmed direct link with the ISIS. 

Lastly, to everyone in Marawi City and the whole Mindanao. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Be strong. Be safe.

World Peace

Except maybe for Saif al-Adel (of Al-Qaeda) because he still has to avenge the death of his boss, everybody dreams of world peace. Yes, you observant you, the operative word is “dream”.

We all know it won’t happen. I mean, we were able to prosper as a species because we killed the Neanderthals so that’s hardly a reassuring start, right? The reptilian dinosaurs didn’t die out, they just developed brains and two feet. It’s only a matter of time before we blow ourselves up with some nuclear holocaust or if you trust the conspiracy theorists a blackhole starting somewhere in France.

To be fair, some humans really believe in the inevitability of world peace, most of them pretty with a crown on their heads and they call themselves Ms. Universe/ World/ International/ Earth/ Barangay Maligaya etc. Beauty and brains may not go together in a lot of situations but who says you need brains? I believe there’s hope somewhere because people like Ms. Universe/ World/ International/ Earth/ Barangay Maligaya say there is. End of discussion.

Seriously, how has Peace fared on Earth?

In Iraq, just yesterday, four soldiers were wounded in a bomb attack in Fallujah City. Meanwhile, Taliban again made their presence felt in Afghanistan killing 35 people and wounded another 20. It’s considered as the worst single attack in months. Moscow airport was bombed early this year, possibly linked to the militants from the Caucasus region.  Gaddaffi continues clinging to power in Libya even with the NATO practically bombing his family tree to smithereens. China has barred journalists in covering protest for fear of the Jasmine revolution happening in Beijing. Uganda’s Kill the Gays Bill is now back in the legislative agenda and will be voted soon.And then you have the Philippines with three renegade groups (Abu Sayyaf, Jemaah Islamiyah and Rahah Sulaiman) threatening to bomb major installations. They consider buses as major installations.

There’s some good news though. Sudan has opted for a creation of a Southern Sudan in the hopes of lessening the carnage between groups. Kim Jong Il will prolly die soon to be replaced by Kim Jong Un who is reportedly less of a psychopath than his father. Egypt and Tunisia are slowly finding their murky way towards true democracy. Osama Bin Laden was killed in a surgical attact by US Marines, putting Pakistan into great shame though. Facebook, Twitter and Wikileaks are now as powerful as ever. 

In the end, we still have a long way to go in achieving Peace obviously. But if you believe Family Radio, we only have two hours to go before god blows our world apart and finally achieving Peace. Although not the kind of peace we want. 

What better way to end this except to say: WORLD PEACE!

oh dear god, Mr. President. Are you really that stupid?

Gawd. Did you think Hitler and Mussolini were defeated by peace talks? Did you think the UN would be established without World War II?

History has stated that peace is always preceded by war. Therefore, Fight fire with fire. Go all out against the rebels and terrorists. Our military is much more advance than them. Beat the shit out of them like…

It’s only been a year since P-Noy’s presidency. I have to say, there was not much progress. Very disappointing..

I will fortify the moral high ground. People will attack me with stories about Abu Ghraib and the killing of Filipino civilians a hundred years ago by American troops, actions which I cannot defend. And I will respond that my troops can build a school, or fix a little girl’s cleft palate in a MEDCAP, whereas all the guerrillas of Abu Sayyaf and Jemaah Islamiyah can offer is a suicide vest. I will build my fortress on deeds, because I know that the only force protection I have is the goodwill of civilians. All the guns in the world won’t keep an IED from going off.

Rodrigo Duterte loves bashing the US — but he also loves US troops fighting terrorists for him
Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte has had no problems bashing the United States. “The special forces, they have to go,” Duterte said in September last year, just months after he assumed office. Instead, his government has asked US special operations forces to help end a siege by the Abu Sayyaf Group, ISIS’s allied group in the southern Filipino island of Mindanao, that has already claimed more than 300 lives in the city of Marawi.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte just threatened to eat ISIS militants
According to the South China Morning Post, on Wednesday night Duterte directed the threat at Abu Sayyaf, an ISIS-affiliated group with a stronghold in the southern island of Mindanao, after the group beheaded two Vietnamese sailors. Known for launching a bloody war on drugs that has killed more than 7,000 people, Duterte has made outrageous comments in the past. Recently, Duterte has been struggling with the growing presence of ISIS-affiliated militants in his country. Read more

arxmin  asked:

hi, i would like to know why duterte is such a problematic public figure? its not that i do not agree, its just that i do not keep up with the news as much so i barely have anything to base on when i try to tell people how duterte isnt a good president. I would like specific things he has and hasnt done with sources. Im hoping to make an editorial article for our campus newspaper.

Here are a few sources you could start on:

TLDR: He supports extrajudicial killings. He has no respect for women. He bullshits foreign relations. He kisses the asses of the Daeshbags that are the Abu Sayyaf. He can’t follow his own laws. He pretends to be less fortunate instead of admitting that he has wealthy friends and that he’s rich enough to pay for a private plane, go home to Davao every weekend without using public funds (when you do that, it means that you have your vast resources to make it happen, mind you, trips from Manila to Mindanao are not cheap) and sending all his kids to one of the most prestigious private schools in his city (mind you, none of his kids are products of state universities or those “low tier” private schools)

He also claims to be against drug criminals when he just displayed leniency to drug offenders (particularly the rich ones) in two instances:

Secuestro y fuga de reos durante ola violenta en Filipinas

JOLO, Filipinas (AP) — Presuntos miembros del movimiento yihadista Abu Sayyaf secuestraron a cuatro trabajadores en una escuela de una provincia del sur de Filipinas donde el presidente Rodrigo Duterte visitó a las tropas que encabezan una ofensiva contra los combatientes, informaron funcionarios el domingo.

Cerca de 20 combatientes irrumpieron en un centro escolar del poblado de Patikul, en la provincia de Sulu, poco después de la medianoche del sábado y secuestraron a seis pintores y carpinteros, uno de los cuales logró escapar y dio aviso a la policía. Tropas militares rescataron poco después a otro de los trabajadores.

Duterte colgó medallas a soldados heridos durante una breve visita el sábado a Sulu, una provincia predominantemente musulmana a cerca de 950 kilómetros (590 millas) al sur de Manila. El presidente ha ordenado a las fuerzas del gobierno acabar a los yihadistas secuestradores y que aún tienen en su poder a varios rehenes filipinos y extranjeros en las selvas de Sulu.

Mientras tanto, 14 reos, entre ellos presuntos integrantes de Abu Sayyaf y narcotraficantes, se fugaron el domingo de un nuevo edificio penitenciario que también alberga sedes de la policía en un complejo gubernamental en Jolo, el poblado principal de Sulu, de acuerdo con funcionarios.

La policía mató a tiros a tres de los hombres que participaron en la fuga y otro fue herido y capturado. Las tropas militares ayudaban a la policía en la búsqueda de los restantes con el uso de drones y perros rastreadores, precisó un comunicado de la policía.

El secuestro y la fuga de reos reflejan los diversos retos de seguridad que enfrenta el gobierno de Duterte en el sur del país, donde miles de elementos del ejército han enfrentado por separado a combatientes alineados con el grupo Estado Islámico que asedia la ciudad de Marawi desde el 23 de mayo.

Luego de 55 días de combate, más de 530 personas, entre ellas 399 combatientes y 93 soldados y policías, han muerto en hechos violentos en la ciudad, centro de fe islámica en el sur de la nación mayormente católica.

Mahasiswa UGM, 2 Mei 2016

Nganu, kok rasanya gatel mau nulis ini. Yaudah, mending ngerasa gatel njuk pengen nulis daripada ngerasa kengen pacar orang njuk ra iso turu.

Media memang tidak banyak memberi atensi pada hal yang terjadi di Jogja hari ini, jadi mereka juga tidak banyak meliput isu ini. Pemberitaan yang lagi santer di media kan umumnya tentang pembebasan WNI dari kelompok Abu Sayyaf to?

Belakangan, saya sendiri mengetahui isu ini cuma dari kawan saya yang dari UGM dan dari timeline line saya. Ha. Hari ini timeline line saya isinya hampir monoton. Hampir semuanya tentang aksi mahasiswa UGM di rektoratnya.

Sejak beberapa waktu lalu di UGM muncul gerakan Save Bonbin Movement. Bonbin adalah kantin kampus UGM di dekat FEB, FIB, dan F. Psikologi. Saya sempat beberapa kali nongkrong disana sama kawan saya yang anak UGM. Kantinnya memang luas sih, walaupun nggak seluas foodcourt UGM.

Kantin bonbin direncanakan untuk direlokasi (jika tidak bisa disebut digusur) oleh UGM. Tujuan UGM adalah untuk mengakomodir pembangunan semacam plaza gitu (koreksi jika saya salah). Sudah ada alternatif solusi yang direncanakan UGM. Yang namanya relokasi berarti ada lokasi baru yang disediakan bukan? Tapi rencana itu ditolak mahasiswa dan pedagang. Argumen penolakan mahasiswa sudah disampaikan langsung pada rektor via dialog yang beberapa waktu lalu digelar di bonbin. Waktu itu mahasiswa pun berangkat dari disiplin keilmuan masing-masing saat melontarkan argumen penolakannya. Jadi mahasiswa nggak asal dalam menolak kebijakan ini. Pada saat itu SP1 kepada peagang bonbin sudah turun.

Sampai ujug-ujug ada info bahwa pihak UGM sudah menurunkan SP2 pada pedagang bonbin. Lagi-lagi dari line, saya membaca post tentang beberapa mahasiswa yang mengusahakan klarifikasi dan dialog dari rektor terkait SP2 ini. Tapi rektor terkesan menghindar. Tindakan beberapa mahasiswa ini sempat jadi perkara, walaupun skalanya kecil.

Sampai perkara kantin ini menjadi bagian dari tiga tuntutan yang dilayangkan mahasiswa pada demo hari ini. Tuntutan pertama terkait penolakan kenaikan UKT, kedua terkait kisruh kantin itu, dan ketiga terkait pencairan tunjangan kinerja yang menunggak tiga semester.

Sebelumnya, rektor lewat wawancara di radio mengatakan bahwa demo itu adalah simulasi pendidikan politik yang difasilitasi UGM. Saya cari info dari kawan saya. Kawan saya alumi UGM dan dia bukan bagian dari demonstran. Dia bagian dari media karena dia punya media yang dia dirikan sendiri sejak masih di FISIPOL. So, karena kawan saya punya sumber info yang valid, saya tanyakan pandangan pribadi kawan saya tentang klarifikasi rektor perihal demo yang dikatakannya simulasi itu. Lalu kawan saya itu menjawab, “Entah rektor ini total dalam berakting atau memang sakit jiwa, dia tetap bersikukuh kalau itu simulasi.”

Lalu saya ngakak.

Saya juga membaca bahwa rektor menolak menemui mahasiswa untuk berdialog secara langsung. Katanya rektor baru mau menemui mahasiswa dan berdialog jika ada 57.000 orang mahasiswa, sebab jumlah mahasiswa UGM segitu. Rektornya terkesan menantang ya? Kalau 50.000 lebih mahasiswa UGM turun, kawasan Jakal ntar macet buk! Lagian itu ibu rektor didatengin 15 orang mahasiswa di rumahnya buat dialog barang 5 menit aja nggak mau menemui, apalagi 50.000 orang.

Sampai disini, koreksi jika saya salah.

Eh, tapi orang Indonesia kan sukanya memang menyalahkan ya?

Saya tidak tau pasti duduk perkaranya dan tidak mau sok tahu. Yang saya tahu sebatas yang saya paparkan diatas. Oke, dari sini saya mau berkomentar dan beropini terkait apa yang hari ini terjadi di kota saya ini.

Saya juga adalah mahasiswa, walaupun bukan mahasiswa UGM. Mbiyen aku yo mbribik UGM, tur aku ditolak. Ping pindo meneh le nolak.

Kapan terkahir mahasiswa Jogja melakukan aksi massa seperti ini? 1998 mungkin? Entah, saya juga tidak tahu sebab selama dua dekade lebih saya hidup di Jogja, saya merasa Jogja anteng-anteng saja. Kita sebagai masyarakat selayaknya mengapresiasi mahasiswa UGM yang memberi aksi ini. Terlepas dari pemicu permasalahannya, ini adalah bukti nyata bahwa mahasiswa masih melek pada isu sosial, ekonomi, dan politik. Jujur, saya sempat skeptis pada kepekaan mahsiswa masa kini. Daripada tergugah pada isu sosial, ekonomi, dan politik, mahasiswa masa kini pasti lebih tergugah pada lawan jenis bukan? Apa yang dilakukan ribuan mahasiswa UGM hari ini meruntuhkan alasan saya untuk skeptis.

Lalu…

Tolong, tolong pemirsa untuk setidaknya memberi komentar di sosial media yang setidaknya mendorong kondisi menjadi kondusif. Saya menghormati apa pun yang keluar dari mulut orang, tak peduli siapa orang itu. Tapi walaupun saya bukan mahasiswa UGM, saya miris juga membaca komentar seperti: “Ngapain ngurusin kantin, banyak hal lain yang lebih penting”

Jika mahasiswa UGM melakukan gerakan, artinya ada yang mereka perjuangkan atau setidaknya ada yang mereka lawan. Yang namanya perjuangan atau perlawanan itu tidak ada yang arahnya dari atas ke bawah, pasti dari bawah ke atas. Jadi dari segi posisi, mahasiswa itu sudah ada di bawah. Maka saya kira akan lebih berguna untuk kita jika kita memberi komentar yang bisa mengangkat moril mahasiswa itu, terlepas dari bagaimana sikap kita pada mereka, apakah mendukung atau menolak. Aksi mereka jelas akan memberi perubahan konkrit. Sebaliknya, komentar tidak memberi hasil apa-apa. Apalagi komentar nyinyir. Maka pilihan untuk kita: menampakkan kebodohan kita dengn memberi komentar nyinyir, atau memberi dukungan moril dan mendorong terciptanya kondisi yang kondusif lewat opini dan masukan dari kita sebagai masyarakat.

Ngerti nggak maksud saya? nggak ngerti? Yaudah lupakan, kita lanjut saja.

Saya mau mengutip apa yang dikatakan Hariman Siregar sebagai aktivis veteran dari UI bahwa gerakan mahasiswa memiliki empat karakter.

Pertama, berani. Jogja selama ini kotanya anteng-anteng saja. Mahasiswa UGM yang tiba-tiba muncul ke permukaan dan memberi aksi seperti itu adalah bukti bahwa mereka berani mendobrak suasana. Setidaknya mereka berani muncul dan mempertaruhkan sesuatu demi apa yang mereka suarakan. Melihat skala pemicu aksi ini, mereka hanya perlu berani saja, belum perlu untuk nekat. Isu yang digalakkan bukanlah isu yang radikal bukan? Belum perlu ada aksi bakar ban~

Kedua, kreatif. Mereka tampak sudah mampu menentukan isu dan menentukan bentuk aksi dalam gerakannya. Dialog mahasiswa dengan rektor yang berisi pemaparan argumen penolakan relokasi kantin yang berangkat dari disiplin keilmuan masing-masing pasca turunnya SP1 atas bonbin kemarin menjadi bukti kreatifitas mahasiswa.

Ketiga, spontan. Mau hari ini hardiknas kek, mau hari ini difasilitasi UGM atas tujuan pendidikan politik kek, mahasiswa itu pasti tidak peduli. Mereka pasti tetap akan bersuara tak peduli apa momentumnya. Kan?

Dan yang keempat adalah yang seharusnya paling penting: konsistensi. Ini yang masih dipertanyakan. Setalah 2 Mei 2016 ini lalu mahasiswa UGM akan memberi apa?

Jika aksi mahasiswa UGM ini adalah sebuah gerakan, maka sekali mereka menggulirkan aksi, mereka harus terus melanjutkan aksinya. Tak boleh ada kepentingan manapun yang mengerem mereka. Perjuangan adalah sesuatu yang endless. Katakanlah tuntutan mereka itu terpenuhi. Itu hanya target yang tercapai. Setelahnya mereka harus membuat target baru. Begitu seterusnya. Jika habis ini njuk udah, nggak ada apa-apa lagi, maka percuma tadi siang mahasiswa itu panas-panasan di bawah matahari.

Akhiran. Saya sebagai warga masyarakat Jogja yang juga masih mahasiswa, berharap agar apa yang diberikan mahasiswa UGM hari ini mendorong kepekaan masyarakat, terutama kaum pemudanya. Apatisme adalah musuh bagi kita. Semoga aksi hari ini mendorong mahasiswa dari kampus lain di Jogja untuk kian aktif dalam hal non akademis.

Ya udah gitu aja. makasih tambler.
