Brigada Eskwela 2016: Tayo para sa Paaralang Ligtas Maayos at Handa

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Brigada Eskwela, also known as the National Schools Maintenance Week, will be on Monday, May 30, until June 3. In this regard, the Department of Education invites you all to help in making our neighborhood schools clean, safe, and disaster-free. Please bring cleaning materials such as grass cutter, guna, bolos, rakes, brooms as well as saws, hammers etc. as there would probably not enough tools to clean-up the school.

Brigada Eskwela 2016 will have a theme dubbed as:"Tayo para sa Paaralang Ligtas Maayos at Handa Mula Kindergarten Hanggang Senior High School".

Every year, people from all over the country volunteer their time and effort to prepare public school facilities for the opening of classes. We see this as an opportunity to manifest core values of Teamwork and Responsibility, and provide meaningful community work for all the people of the community.

All stakeholders are welcome to volunteer their services on these days. The school will appreciate it very much if volunteers with skills in masonry, carpentry, painting, electricity, plumbing, gardening and landscaping will extend their expertise during the Brigada Eskwela days. They would also welcome generous donors of cash or in kind such as paints, cement, plywood, etc on these dates. You may also help out by donating materials and equipment for our Junior High School and Senior High School program.

Oplan RODY: Rid the Streets Of Drinkers and Youth

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Men who violated the 10pm liquor ban, seen drinking on public places, are temporarily detained and made to do 40 push-ups at a police headquarters in Las Pinas.

Those who finished the 40 push ups were allowed to go home while those who haven't completed the punishment were jailed temporarily, the report said.

The mass arrests were made in line with “Oplan RODY,” a campaign named after Davao City mayor and now incoming president Rodrigo "Rody" Duterte or otehrwise known as "Digong."

At about 10:00pm, elements of the Las Pinas city police station led by PSUPT CONRADO N BUNYI, ACOPA together with PCI LIBRETO BUISAN, ACOPO with the full cooperation of Las Piñas City Force Multipliers under the direct supervision of PSSUPT JEMAR D MODEQUILLO, ACOP conducted "OPLAN RODY" (Rid the streets Of Drinkers and Youth) at Barangay CAA, Las Piñas City.

The said successful operation resulted to the rescue of 57 minors and the arrest of 2 Drinking in Public, 16 Half Naked and 8 for violation of RA 9165 (COMPREHENSIVE DANGEROUS DRUGS ACT OF 2002). The number was said to increase to more than 100.

Flores de Pusher is the New Walk of Shame

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Tanauan, Batangas innovates their shame campaign against drug pushers with their newly repackaged and quite humorous walk of shame dubbed as Flores de Pusher reported to have been held on May 23, 2016.

Mayor Antonio Halili came up with his own version of the Flores de Mayo designed for the drug pushers of his city. The suspects, bearing the signs that say “Ako'y drug pusher, 'wag tularan,” were made to walk under a bamboo arch with the sign “Flores de Pusher." The Mayor explained that the “walk of shame” is an approach he found effective and conceptualized the thematic event. Eleven suspected drug pushers in Tanauan, Batangas, were forced to join the walk of shame campaign.

As a staunch advocate against illegal drugs, they say presumptive president Rodrigo Duterte supports the shaming of drug pushers.

Tanauan City is known to have a lot of drug addicts and pushers, and the Mayor's Anti-Crime Group lead by MACG Chief Mr Allan Fajardo is the one assigned to implement strategies to strengthen the fight against illegal drugs.

Sigh! It seems the iron-fist and unconventional style of governance of incoming President Rodrigo Duterte is slowly rubbing off on other people. But this is considered more humane than the Davao DEath Squad. Though the Commission on Human Rights is looking at this issue with a glaring eye, I doubt they have enough political will to implement any strong resistance against the Local Government Units.
What about you? Would you commend or abhor the Flores de Pusher?
