International Women's Day in the Philippines
Today, women in the Philippines and all over the world gather in different places and spaces to show our collective strength and make our collective voice heard as we speak out our sufferings, challenges, triumphs and aspirations. Our voices are joined together as we resist the abuses and marginalization wrought upon us by economic policies that discriminate against giving women productive employment, just wages and benefits at the workplace, and opportunities for livelihood and income; by societies that allow, or even promote, violence to be committed against women with impunity; by governments and public institutions that turn a blind eye to the human rights of women.

Filipino Workers criticize shortcomings of EDSA (1)
The Partido ng Manggagawa (PM - Labor Party - Philippines) criticized the shortcomings of EDSA 1 as the government commemorates the 25th anniversary of the first people power uprising. “The people power uprising of 1986 turns silver today but it shines no more. That is because the social deficit outweighs the political benefits of simple political turnover between factions of the elite, which is the main achievement of the post-EDSA dispensation,” declared Renato Magtubo, PM chair.

Mubarak has fallen, Capitalism remains

 Let Them Pay Their Own Way
One of the third rail issues in US politics gets looked at each time politicians seriously consider the closing of American military bases or cuts to the Pentagon budget. It might seem strange to be broaching the subject now while there are two major theaters of conflict - those being Afghanistan and Iraq, yet in some ways it is the perfect time. Americans still spend huge amounts around the world in other places and those two only compound the costs. America hasn’t always kept so many bases worldwide, yet always maintained a healthy and muscular military. It’s true times change it’s also true nothing in life comes without a price (image/jpeg)

Sexual Prey in the Saudi Jungle
He was an officer in the Saudi Royal Navy assigned to the strategic Saudi base of Jubail in the Persian Gulf. She was a single mom from Mindanao, in the Philippines, who saw, like so many others, employment in Saudi Arabia as a route out of poverty. When he picked her up at the Dammam International Airport in June, little did she know she was entering, not a brighter chapter of her life but a chamber of horrors from which she would be liberated only after six long months.

Will peace break out at last? Much hope has been sparked by the coming resumption of peace talks between the National Democratic Front (NDF) and the Aquino government. Undoubtedly, this optimism stems from the widespread public perception that President Benigno Aquino III is genuinely interested in ending the four-decade-long war between the NDF and the Philippine government.
