No Read, No Write Ako
(written by Racz Kelly)

Lumaki ako sa isang magulong lugar sa Mindanao. Nasa lugar kami kung saan walang humpay ang giyera.

Panganay ako sa aming magkakapatid. Sa edad kong lima, natuto ako sa mga gawaing bahay. Lima palang kaming magkakapatid noon atl tig-iisang taon lamang ang pagitan namin.

Ang mga magulang ko, sa bukid nagtatrabaho. Kailangan na sa kanilang pag-uwi ay malinis ang bahay, may nakahanda ng pagkain at malinis na ang mga kapatid ko.

BATOG
By James Lobedica

Pulong pasabot ug pagtugdon,
Pagpaubos, pagpadailos ug sutaon

Ang kalalim ug kamatulukibon’g bation,
Human sa panaw’ ng may gitas-on,

Ang pagbatog usa usab ka matang sa pagpahulay,
Sa lutahan, kaugatan, pawala kini sa kalaay

Why we should stop sending maids abroad – Atty JBJ

Source: DIRECT FROM THE LABOR FRONT By Atty Josephus Jimenez

Now that the Philippine economy is at its best, after so many decades of economic stagnation, this is the best time to stop being the number one supplier of maids in the whole world. And if the government is really sincere in its declared policy to protect our women workers, there should be a total ban against deployment of domestic helpers to any country. This ban should be unconditional, immediate and total. The DOLE, in coordination, with other government agencies, and with the private sector, must be able to create enough jobs and enterprises that can replace overseas employment, as the preferred source of income for unskilled female workers. Maid deployment is a business that makes multi-millionaires of recruiters while our poor women are being jailed, raped or killed abroad. We have to stop this modern slave trade immediately.

Balak Back2Back: Saad VS Panumpa

SAAD
by Atty James Lobedica

pulong nga makapadasig ug makapaluag,
manghatag ug pasalig nga kuno dili molubad,
mga bituon sa langit ihalad aron ang saad mohayag,
adunay mosaad himoong posible ang imposible,

ang saad mopahimong sayon, sa lisod buhaton,
may saad nga mamunga ug uhaa, bata diay ang resulta,
pagkadaghan gayud sa mga saad, sama sa nanaad,
ug sa mga binuhat nga andam modawat ug saad.
