For true peace, first there must be justice

In the heart of Putumayo, one of the most troubled regions in Colombia, a coalition of grass-roots and human rights organisations held a two day event offering an opportunity for reflection, analysis and the highlighting of the reality being lived in the region. The 'Citizens' Assembly for Truth' offered an integral space to the region’s many victims of the conflict.

Lies About the U.S. Civil War 150 Years Later

Tuesday marks 150 years since the start of the U.S. Civil War.  Newspapers everywhere are proclaiming it the deadliest war in U.S. history, the costliest U.S. war in terms of the loss of human life.  That claim, like most things we say about the Civil War, is false.



Most humans, it will surprise our newspapers to learn, are not U.S. citizens.  World War II killed 100 times as many people as the U.S. Civil War, with World War I not far behind.  U.S. wars in Korea, Vietnam, and Iraq are… Continue

POVERTY: PH LINGERING ACHILLES HEEL

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

Let me follow through on the hunger report by reflecting on poverty once more. Ph is an economic boom episode and its chief exec Noynoy Aquino has been in power for almost a year since installation. Yet hunger grows amidst relative abundance!

 

Government statistics has to be massaged anew so as to make it appear that poverty has been going down. The ‘doctorates of statistical massage’ should better do their jobs well, as the…

Is GroupMe the Next Big Thing for SMS and How Might It Support Social Change?

Perhaps the biggest thing to come out of this years famed South By Southwest Conference (SXSWi) was the GroupMe app. And since there’s basically an app for everything, we need to wonder what is so special about this one.

SwiftRiver: Where Software Meets Social Change

You land in a country that is recovering from a long war.  The infrastructure is limited, but there is a nascent democratic government.  To make up for the lack of infrastructure, citizens use text messages sent to a central receiver or Twitter feeds to let government officials know what they need.  I’m describing E-Democracy, and using a platform like Swiftriver, these text messages and Tweets can be organized by time and geographic location.  It provides information to elected leaders,…

HUNGRY FOLKS GROW AMIDST PLENTY

HUNGRY FOLKS GROW AMIDST PLENTY

 

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

The Social Weather Stations or SWS just recently conducted its regular national survey on hunger, with the alarming conclusion of growing poverty incidence. A 20% hunger rate was the bleak turn of the survey, which is indeed gruesome to the stomach given the economic boom years.

 

It seems that the only people benefiting from the economic boom are the likes of SMC’s Ang,…
