In 1985, or around the
same time that Marcos was contemplating a "snap" election, the Uruguayan
military - finally tired of running the country for 12 years, decided to
convene all political parties (except the Tupamaros) to prepare for the
transition to civilian rule. Thus came about the historic "Pacto Club
Naval" (Naval Club Pact, after the Navy Club, the venue of the historic
conference). A general amnesty was declared, all political prisoners
were released (among them, former Army Chief and Frente Amplio founder,
Gen. Liber Seregni), elections were scheduled, and the military went
back to the barracks. Frente Amplio ran a slate of candidates in 1985,
but did not win. From 1985 to 2004, the dominant traditional parties
(Blanco and Colorado) took turns running the country. In 1989, the
Tupamaros finally made a commitment to renounce violence and take the
electoral route, via two political formations: National Liberation
Movement-Tupamaros and Movement for Popular Participation. They are now
part of Frente Amplio, which was swept to victory in the 2004 elections.
FA won the presidency, vice-presidency, and majorities in the Senate and
Lower House. The current senate president is Jose Mujica, Tupamaro
founder; the speaker of the house is Nora Castro, a former Tupamaro
commander. Frente Amplio also controls 70% of
local government units. And they did all these without firing a shot.
Can something similar happen in the Philippines? We can only hope and
pray. If we are looking for models for peaceful social change, we only
need to look at the world around us. We might yet learn a thing or two.
Note that while Frente
Amplio's political victory shocked all of
Latin America, the Frente is not sitting on its laurels. On the
contrary, they have moved fast to address the most urgent issues
affecting the country: poverty, unemployment and underemployment, and
homelessness. The bulk of the government's budget is allocated for these
three main issues. The new leadership is fully aware that without a
massive anti-poverty program, the country cannot move forward and
continue the healing and reconciliation process.
Sanglit, Mano Profesor -
padayon hini nga imo pagsinurat, a ver pa man daro-damo ha aton an

I am looking forward to
my second trip to Samar next month. I fell in love with your home during
my first trip earlier this year. It was so lush and green and the air
was fresh and smelled sweet. The people were friendly and I was never
made to feel like I was unwelcome. I stayed at the Marju Krisel in
Calbayog which is a fine place to stay having a large pool for fun and
relaxation with the added bonus of San Miguel Light!!
The only negative I
could find is an echo of what Manny Versoza wrote on July 11. Why aren't
the government officials doing something about the road conditions? I
see lots of money being spent on roads in the NCR and they are building
a new expressway from Angeles to Subic. Couldn't some of that money have
been put to better use providing Samareños with better roads? Just my

This refers to that news item
where a staff of Mayor Tekwa has suggested to Ms. Tessie Tomas to try out
"Boulevard" (news) in one of her night out sprees. Unwittingly, Mr. Lim, the mayor's
aide, seemed to have acknowledged that the drinking strip along Catbalogan's
is an official tourist attraction.
Sad to say, however, much can be
said about that strip. For one, it is situated at the heart of Catbalogan's
educational district. On both sides of the boulevard are located educational
institutions including the DepEd, GSP, and BSP which are tasked to hone and
develop not only the cognitive and psychomotor skills of the young but more so
inculcate in them laudable values. Sadly, however, it was during Mayor Tekwa's
incumbency that these drinking spots started to sprout along the boulevard. A
number of complaints have been lodged against these compromising business
ventures because they tend lure the young and the very young to a life of
hedonistic wanton leisure at the expense of parents who would labor endlessly
just to provide their exiled students enough allowances that unfortunately end
up in the boulevard's liquor bins.
It is doubly disheartening that
even barangay officials and BSP officials have recently joined the bandwagon to
cash in on the frivolous lifestyle of our young students - study all day, drink
all night- and we brag that this is a tourist spot. I wonder what moral
anchorage our Tourism program has. The efforts of Mayor Tekwa to transform
Catbalogan's economy is laudable, but development programs must not only comply
with economic criteria but must more so conform with our deeply sated moral
benchmarks. This, I regrettably fear, the good mayor lacks.

My goodness! It really
makes me sick everytime I go home from
seeing no improvements with our roads and highways. 5 years ago since
college until now, the road still sucks! I'd love coming back to my
hometown at least once and twice a year for a family reunion, I enjoy
the fresh foods, the air, the nature, the cool folks, the places, only
that I hate the roads. Yes the roads! I was thinking everytime I came
home - oooh.. maybe next year it would already be okay. But my goodness!
it's getting worse year after year!!!
Government officials do something... I know this is the prayer of every

Coefredo "Tekwa" Uy for his vision, foresight and smart thinking of a
prosperous, cleaner and peaceful Catbalogan. New infrastructures bring new
businesses which in turn generate jobs and more income for Catbalogan. This will
surely increase Catbalogan's annual income and certainly facilitate its cityhood

It's impeachment season
once again and it looks that some people will spend money (again)
although that money does not necessarily comes from their pockets, and
yes siree! some people will also receive lots of money for their
unprincipled positions. . . . .
As a Samareño I was
happy that last year, our congressmen were for the impeachment of GMA,
well it was initially clear. For that lying, cheating and stealing,
and the endless flip-flopping of national issues and government
policies, but more importantly on the cheating and lying and
stealing....plus the fact that Palparan was a general problem in Samar
due to the exodus of farmers and barrio folks from the countryside
because of koridas nga mga pamatay, every person was always a suspected
subversive. . . talk of criticizing the government, . . you become
instantly a subversive!
Later on, as you my
dears have already observed, our congressmen Figueroa and Uy were
silenced during the voting in congress! Why? Well they claimed that
they just wanted general problem Palparan out of
Samar. . . too flimsy and unprincipled stand for supposed to be or
trying to be honorables. . . Did the killing stop after Palparan? Will
those killed be brought to life with the re-assigning of Palparan? Will
those people who fled from their homes be remunerated of the damages
that they suffered with the peace and order disturbed by the soldiers
who became the people's persecutor rather than protector?
The shortness of memory
of people is sometimes caused by dead people as Ninoy Aquino, Abad
Santos, Escoda, Manuel Roxas and the endless projects promised by
The congressmen who were
bought last year must be very thankful to the people who filed the
impeachment complaints! For very obvious reasons. . . it's fund raising
time once again folks!
Who ever said that GMA
is a poor diplomat? She even uses the Vatican and even the Pope to have
photo-ops and pee-arr and leverage? Her style stinks more! Well I hope
that the Vatican just gives her a usual protocol or welcome, just like
what they did to Marcos but behind the scenes it really an opposite
matter. . . How did GMA become what she is now when she is a daughter of
DM the Incorruptible?
Lately, Figueroa has
announced that he had worked with Malacanang on the completion of the
Catbalogan Airport. . . he should have forgotten the study that
mentioned that the wind current at Buri is unpredictable and is always
dangerous to airplanes most especially when they are about to land in
any weather. . . He should study that, consult with professionals from
Air Transport Office and PAG-ASA, cause if he will ignore this he would
be killing his fellow Samareños. Figueroa may also make a killing in the
public works funds for the airport, just like the story of another
airport also in an island in Northern Samar, where a current congressman
has been rumored to have acquired more from the funds of his proposed
airport in his native Island!
By the way, who will be
the people who will fly-in to
airport in Calbayog has less passengers, ditto with that of Catarman,
than the previous years. Tourists are turned-off (including us, natives
of this almost God-forsaken island) because of the worst concreted
roads, is there such a thing? Only in Samar, courtesy of our Congressmen
and GMA. . . they play discordant songs by saying let's develop tourism,
let's have this and that festival to lure tourists, but they forget the
roads. . . and bridges too. . .
These incompetents are
insulting us Samareños... And still we clap our hands when they exhort
the teachers to stamp-out corruption? Kalu-ad gad hini nga mga tawo!
Speak your mind Samar!
Let your bells be heard!
Lastly, when Ramos was
president who was the Samareño who asked him where father Rudy Romano or
did he had any information where our brother was? After all, he was a
ranking military man during Marcos' regime!
Thanks Ray for your
hospitality... I hope this message will be posted by the fearless Samar

THE UK NHS HAS CLOSED
THE DOOR ON INTERNATIONAL RECRUITMENT, OVERSEAS NURSES NO LONGER
REQUIRED THEREFORE FILIPINO NURSES ARE NO LONGER REQUIRED, THE UK STOLE
THE BEST OF THE BEST AND LEFT THE PHILIPPINE HEALTH SERVICE STRUGGLING
WITH NEWLY QUALIFIED NURSES IN CHARGE OF WARDS AND HEALTH CARE
The following was
announced by the Health Minister Lord Warner 2nd July 2006 without
consultation, I believe the statement has ramifications for those D
Grade / Band 5 Staff Nurses who are migrant workers and still Contract
Employee. It might be seen as a way of creating vacancies in the NHS for
the grade for graduating UK indigenous nurses in September 2006.. Now
that the Grade D / Band 5 is listed as no longer shortage occupation,
there is obviously no guarantee that the migrant nurse who's permit and
contract are due for renewable that it may or may not be renewed, This
causes me concern.

NHS Employers issues
support materials to help the NHS manage workforce changes
The extra investment in
nurse education means that the NHS no longer needs to hire more junior
nurses from abroad, Health Minister Lord Warner announced today.
Nursing has historically
been included on the Home Office shortage occupation list to support
international recruitment where NHS trusts have been unable to fill
vacancies using UK or EEA trained staff.
By removing general
nurses from the shortage occupation list, employers will need to
advertise any vacancies first and only if they are unable to fill the
post can they turn to international recruitment.
At present, this change
applies to nursing posts graded at Agenda for Change bands 5 and 6,
where overall the supply of nurses is now healthy.
Health Minister Lord
“The NHS has seen
historical levels of investment and a period of expansion in the nursing
workforce since 1997 in order to help reduce waiting times, improve
access to services and ensure high quality treatment and care.
“On top of this we have
made a huge investment in education and training and in the development
of robust recruitment and retention policies. This is now bearing
fruit. We now have more than 379,000 qualified nurses working in the
NHS, 82,000 more than in 1997 as well as record levels of nurses in
“We are now moving away
from year-on-year growth in the NHS workforce to more of a steady state
where there is a closer match between demand and supply. Large-scale
international nurse recruitment across the NHS was only ever intended to
be a short-term measure. The aim of the NHS has always been to look
towards home-grown staff in the first instance and have a diverse
workforce that reflects local communities.
“Therefore to ensure
that UK resident and newly trained nurses are given every opportunity to
continue their career in the UK and to secure the future workforce of
the NHS, we are today taking Agenda for Change band 5 and 6 nurses off
the shortage list. “
In addition, NHS
Employers today issued a range of information to support NHS
organisations when faced with workforce change, endorsed by Health
Minister Lord Warner.
Drawn up in consultation
with professional and staff interests, the documents offer practical
support to NHS students, staff and managers who may be facing
redeployment, redundancy or difficulty getting their first job after
opportunities in a changing NHS offers advice and best practice to
employers on how to support their staff through the current workforce
challenges. It contains information on how trusts can make greater use
of internal banks rather than relying on agency staff, recruit more new
graduates into community roles, use accelerated development programmes
to skill up the current workforce and make maximum use of the free
national NHS jobs recruitment service. A range of case studies
illustrate what trusts are doing at local level to support their
NHS Employers is also
publishing Retention of Experienced Staff in the NHS which contains
information on how trusts can retain senior staff during times of
change. This document and the other support tools are available on NHS
Employers’ website at
Steve Barnett, Director
of NHS Employers, said: “NHS Employers is providing a range of
information that will help employers to support their staff through this
period of change. We are working closely with employers, staff
organisation and other stakeholders at a national level to ensure that
we all do everything we can to support the workforce through these
changing times and to retain valuable skills and experience.”
Phil Gray, Chief
Executive of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, said:
“Physiotherapists will welcome today’s document from NHS Employers as a
clear signal to trusts that even in the current financial climate there
is much they can do to put newly qualified physiotherapists to work and
to retain the experienced practitioners who are innovating and
modernising across the full range of care settings.”
Health Minister Lord
Warner added: “It is clear that some NHS organisations are reviewing and
rationalising the way they work to ensure they are fit for purpose and
this includes considering the number of staff they employ and how they
are best used.
“For this reason it is
currently a worrying and uncertain time for some staff working in the
NHS, and indeed for some healthcare graduates.
“I am reassured that
where trusts are reducing posts they are mainly doing so through
expected turnover, vacancy freezes, reducing the use of agency staff,
and redeploying staff in different ways. They are working hard to avoid
redundancies and for the most part succeeding, despite some exaggerated
"Unfortunately it seems
that some redundancies will be inevitable, particularly in the most
challenged trusts; but where posts are being reduced we want to ensure
employers are involving staff in consultations about the way forward and
are making every effort to ensure that care for patients is not
“At a national level,
the Department of Health is working closely with NHS Employers to ensure
appropriate support and guidance is available.”
Many initiatives for
improving health care – such as providing more treatment in the
community and the introduction of new roles for staff and new providers
of services – are changing how staff work, particularly in acute
Chief Nursing Officer
Christine Beasley said: “We’ve all seen the headlines claiming that
thousands of staff face unemployment. Although the figures have been
exaggerated clearly there are some nurses and midwives that are facing
uncertainty in the NHS. In particular, new graduates are concerned they
will not be able to find their first post.
“We do still need and
will continue to need new staff to replace those who retire or take
career breaks. Many employers, even those making reductions in workforce
numbers still expect to take on newly qualified nurses graduates.
“However, new graduates
in certain professions, such as nursing and physiotherapy, are likely to
find more competition in finding their first job than in the recent past
and people may have to be prepared to be mobile to secure a post. My
advice to students about to qualify is that there are jobs out there,
perhaps not in your first choice of speciality or local trust but be
open minded about where and in which areas you work.”
Intelligence from NHS
Employers shows the situation is patchy - some trusts expect to take on
all or most of their graduates but there are significant geographical
variations, for example, the East Midlands has problems but London,
Leeds, Manchester and Essex expect to take on most of their new nurses.
Many areas are committed to finding posts for all their graduates and
are being innovative and creative in making sure this happens.
For example, some trusts
are ring-fencing posts for local nurse graduates and where sufficient
substantive posts are not available, for example, are taking them on in
flexible pools where they work in a range of different settings
according to the needs of the service and are provided with mentorship
For those Trusts who are
still finding it difficult Maximising employment opportunities in a
changing NHS offers practical support to Trusts to help NHS graduates
NHS Employers are
working with the Council of Deans for Nursing and the Professions on a
number of immediate and longer term strategies.
Paul Turner, Head of the
Council of Deans said: “The Council of Deans is working jointly
with NHS Employers to improve and share intelligence on employment
opportunities and career development for newly qualifying nurses.
“We will continue to
advance and develop strategies that positively promote nursing as a
career choice and continue the development of pre-registration
programmes that have a well-balanced community and hospital focus with
balanced and well supported placement experiences.”
