Demolition of squatters’ shanties in Purok Progreso, in Brgy. Taculing, has been ordered stopped by Bacolod City Mayor Monico Puentevella, after landowners’ who have been pushing for this, stopped upon orders of the chief executive.
Berlita Ante of the urban poor group, Kadamay, earlier informed anchormen of radio station DYRLs "Tungkaron Ta Ini" program, in a series of interviews said, the order of demolition was previously ordered by the former administration of Mayor Evelio Leonardia but that the residents, had reasoned out that the city government could well implement an in-house building program for the members of the urban poor families living in the area because the place is a city government property as it is considered a natural accretion.

It cannot be denied: "Climate change which means the world is being squeezed between expanding deserts from the interior continents and rising seas on the periphery," is indeed worsening.
No wonder, international scientists and world environmental watchers are now mere concerned about the question: "Is the cyclone referring to the wrath of super typhoon Yolanda another major proof of climate change the world is waiting – and will be experiencing, again and again?"
This holocaust aftermath is one major catastrophe that should perhaps become a focus of the Center for Environmental Initiatives (CEI) when it holds its 45th Environment Forum on Monday, December 16 at the provincial capitol. Apart from coming up with an Action Plan for 2014, the forum will also come up with sectoral committee updates in forest, coastal and main resources, as well as swim and water, which are deemed relevant to environmental issues and climate change as a whole.
Climate change, needless to state, means poor and rich countries alike will suffer major hazards: hunger and poverty, diseases like HIV/AIDS, millions of refugees and homeless, and armed conflicts for dwindling world resources.
"Take me out to the ball game. Take me out with the crowd. Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack. I don't care if I never get back. Let me root, root, root for the home team. If they don't win, it's a shame. For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out, at the old ball game."
This is the chorus of the popular song, "Take Me Out to the Ball Game". Created in 1908 by Jack Norworth and Albert Von Tilzer, the song is usually sung at the seventh-inning stretch of baseball matches in the U.S. (considered the half-time break). In view of recent news reports, I take creative liberty to reword the chorus for Ramon Paje, the intended Secretary of the Dept. of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR). Here goes:
"Take me out to the Senate. Take me out with the trash. Buy me some plastics and styrofoam. I don't care if I'm never confirmed. Let me boot, boot, boot the environment. If it's destroyed, it's a shame. For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out, at the old DENR."
FROM THE MARCOS REGIME PERIOD. Negros Island, specifically, our province, Negros Occidental has been the focal point of human rights violations since the Marcos regime, imposed authoritarian rule by declaring martial rule in September 21, 1972.
The worse was, of course, during the period, the late Philippine dictator, imposed his authoritarian rule, citing supposed communist and NPA threats of rebellion as his major reason.
Thus, when he declared martial rule years after, soon after grave, serious human rights excesses were committed by the regime.
