The 2007 Mindanao Blog Awards

mba-150.gifWe ( The Usual Suspect ) after how many meeting in planning/organizing for the 1st Mindanao Bloggers Summit also decided to have some blog awards to spice up the event.

And we come up with the 1st Mindanao Blog Awards.

The Mindanao Blog Awards aims to give recognition to the finest of weblogs of, in, or about Mindanao. What sets this Awards apart is its focus on content, and not on link popularity or search-engine ranking. Although such metrics will also be taken into account, the quality, consistency, relevance, depth and efficacy of a blog’s content will form the core of the criteria.

The Mindanao Blog Awards 2007, which is to be held as a culminating event of the 1st Mindanao Bloggers Summit, is the pioneering endeavor of a group of Mindanaoans who envision a more progressive Mindanao through their activities as bloggers.

AFP Harassments in Sulu

I recieved an email from Adzfar Usman, MNLF Youth relayed to Samira Gutoc thru our YMPN yahoogroups. Heres the content:

Military ops still ongoing in the province(s) of Sulu, of course, in Basilan too. The worst thing is, instead of giving space to the civilians to harvest their fruits produce (now is harvest season), and despite of the appeal from the CSO’s and other government line agencies, thru the Peace Working Group of the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue, the ops is being intensified. and there were accusations from the civilians allegedly the military in the area were harvesting their fruits and stealing their livestock particularly chickens. This is in the upper part of Bato-bato in Indanan municipality. and this is maybe true also in some other parts of Sulu.

I hope through our little efforts, we can find ways how to stop this impunity against our people.

There always this kind of harrassments during wars. During the previous all-out wars of years 2000 and 2003 in Mindanao particularly in Lanao provinces, the military steals the spoils of war. The spoils – livestocks and belongings left by the residents fleeing to evacuation site or away from military operation. When the resident goes back to their respected houses their livestocks and important things in their houses were gone.
