Palm Sunday invasion

By

On Palm Sunday, people are likely to think of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, or of their sins, perhaps in preparation for Holy Week.

Legacy

By

Stash the baloney. The rising shrillness on the political front today is not about ideals, let alone a government of integrity that Filipinos have a right to.

Edsa’s grandchildren

By

When the “Edsa Generation” moves on—to inevitable death or to forgetfulness—who will do the remembering?

Justice for Fr. Pops Tentorio

It has been two years since the killing of Italian priest Fausto “Pops” Tentorio of the Pontifical Institute of Foreign Missions (PIME). To remember Father Pops’ martyrdom, Auckland Philippines Solidarity and church leaders in New Zealand, gathered at St John’s Presbyterian Church and lighted candles to reiterate anew their call for justice for Father Pops.

Filipino justice—from concept to practice

By

Interesting, challenging and at times intriguing were the readers’ replies to the query I posed last Sunday on whether our present justice system reflects the Filipino concept of justice articulated by Dean Jose Manuel I. Diokno. These replies were posted on this paper’s website (www.inquirer.net). More numerous and many from abroad were those e-mailed directly to me. They could fill up several columns. For all these, I am grateful.

Madness

For one wild moment it seemed like a scene from that memorable protest rally in Manila in February 1986, days before the People Power revolt, when Citizen Cory called for a boycott of institutions, business firms, and newspapers owned or associated with the dictator Ferdinand Marcos and his cronies.

August and Cory and Ninoy

By

Cory Aquino would not have approved of all the fuss we make every time August comes around. As she has said often enough in gratitude to the crowd that faithfully attended the anniversary of Ninoy Aquino’s Aug. 21 assassination, you have done more than your share, you no longer have to come when my turn comes.

The Cory paintings

By

I very much doubt if the late President Cory Aquino even conceived of putting up her paintings and other painted works on exhibit.

‘About Time’

By

Only Cory Aquino did better, not just appearing in Time Magazine but on the cover of Time Magazine. Indeed, not just appearing on the cover of Time Magazine but appearing there five times. The first in February 1986 after the Edsa Revolution, the second (along with Doy Laurel) in March 1986 in a cover story titled, “Now for the hard part,” third in January 1987 as Time’s “Woman of the Year,” fourth in November 2006 as one of “60 Asian Heroes,” and fifth in August 2009 after her death as “The woman who changed Asia.”

Transition from old to new oligarchy

By

Twenty-seven years after the Edsa People Power Revolution toppled the Ferdinand Marcos dictatorship, the government of the restored Philippine democracy is in the hands of the son of the late President Cory Aquino, whose family is descended from the country’s wealthiest political dynasty.

Remembering the way we were

By

The next four weeks, close to the end of another school year, offer another opportunity for teachers to expose their students to a chapter of recent history still not properly documented or rendered the importance it deserves in textbooks—the curse of the martial law years, the almost miraculous ascent to power of the woman garbed in yellow, and the phenomenal Edsa Revolution that inspired many other peaceful revolutions in the world.

A greater betrayal of PH

This refers to Ricardo Ramos’ letter, where he said “Cory betrayed the Filipino people” because she pursued “a position similar to the American position,” as revealed in a book written by Dr. Alran Bengzon, then health secretary and head of Philippine government negotiating panel (Inquirer, 10/6/12).
