1. Dog Park For Iloilo

I would love to have a dog park here in Iloilo. A fun place for our pets to play, socialize, excercise, and just basically have some space of their own. Walking a dog can be hard, especially out on the streets, with many possible dangers. It'd be amazing to have a park that eliminates these problems and gives an owner a sense of security. Toss some simple basic training equipment, some pathways, a fire hydrant to pee on, and that'll be a great place to go with your pooch; as simple as that. The dog park should be in a safe location, walled and guarded.

2. Stop Expropriation/Demolition of Buildings in Araneta/C3

The Metro Manila Skyway was built to decongest Metro Manila roads. However, the lack of transparency in the planning stages led to the current situation where quite a number of residences, buildings, business establishments (including banks, stores, gas stations, factories, etc.) are directly/indirectly affected by complete/partial expropriation/forced demolition because of this.

4. Give more attention to stopping Online Sex Exploitation of Children (OSEC)

966 women, 165 minors, and 89 males were victims of human trafficking and illegal recruitment in 98 incidents (26 local; 72 overseas) in the Philippines in January-December 2010 - a TUCP compilation of trafficking newspaper and media reports show.

Governments in the Philippines are doing their best but its operations are not given more attention. Filipinos are aware but not given much information.

5. Operation Anti-Chinese Occupation Of South China Sea (Operation A.C.O.N.S.C.S.)

As some of you may know, the Government Of China is almost done with the building of multiple manmade islands in the disputed waters of the South China Sea.

They claim that the area in which they are building the islands on historically belong to them. However, this is totally untrue as most of the area they claim to be in their sovereign territory are hundreds of miles away from their shores. Thus if something isn't done soon, the countries of ASEAN may be heading towards what can be called "Chinese Imperialism" in the near future.

6. Stop Confiscating OFWs Phones

This Petition seeks to STOP the common practice of confiscation of mobile/cell phones from the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) by:

- the staff of the Philippine government owned shelter houses upon arrival of the distressed workers seeking government protection from abusive employers;

- the staff of recruitment agencies licensed by the Philippine government;

- the staff of accredited recruitment agencies in the labor receiving countries, subjecting the OFWs to body searches, including body cavity search;

- the employers who are in the approved overseas employers list of the Philippine government.

The OFWs, already facing the uncertainties of employment or repatriation, their desperate situations, become more desperate when their cell phones are confiscated, effectively cutting off needed emotional support from families and friends.

Additionally, confiscating cell phones from abused workers discourages them from seeking refuge since they will be experiencing more isolations at the Philippine government owned shelters.

This Petition asserts the basic rights of the OFWs to communicate with the outside world via their cell phones.

7. Performance Audit of Philippine Embassies on Trafficking and Labor Issues

This is a petition to urge the Philippine Government to improve the services provided to the overseas workers, their families and the general public at various Philippine diplomatic missions Re: Human Trafficking and Labor Issues

Additionally, this is a collection from the general public of an unofficial Performance Audit about the quality or lack thereof of services provided at various Philippine Embassies Re: Human Trafficking and Labor Issues

This Performance Audit is not connected to any government, public, private agencies or organizations and does not seek to replace the complaint process provided by the Philippine government Re: Human Trafficking and Labor Issues

9. Recommission Bataan Nuclear Power Plant

Recommissioning Bataan Nuclear Power Plant is a one quick solution for today's Energy Crisis in the Philippines.

It is a one way to stop using Coal Power Plants, Trash Incinerator Power Plants, and Oil Power Plants to combat the High Temperature in the Philippines and Global Warming.

10. Typhoon Haiyan relief from Sault Ste. Marie

Canada has some of the highest levels of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per capita. Individual choice is highly influenced by existing infrastructures.

Transportation infrastructure is a primary contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. Increased atmospheric GHG emissions have altered climatic conditions and increased the intensity and severity of extreme weather events.

Existing levels of road transport in Canada are luxurious by international standards. Sault Ste. Marie maintains some of the least congested and most extensive road infrastructure in Ontario. Delaying road infrastructure expansion will generate a marginal adverse impact on mobility, and may generate significant beneficial outcomes.

Any costs of such delay will be more than offset by the huge potential to save lives in the Philippines alone, while mitigating further GHG emissions that cause climate change.

11. FREE THE ABADILLA 5!

Dear Campaigners, Supporters, Friends, Ladies & Gentlemen

This Petition is to highlight the plight and the release of the Abadilla 5 who have been imprisoned for the past 20 years.

In June 1996, a group of FIVE (5) INNOCENT Filipinos, known as Abadilla 5, were arrested and later on convicted for the murder of Col. Rolando Abadilla. The killing of Col. Abadilla had been claimed by rebel group, the Alex Boncayao Brigade (ABB) for his alleged crimes committed against the Filipino people during the Marcos Era.

For 20 years the victims had been fighting for their INNOCENCE. Many known crusaders for truth and justice led by Fr. Robert Reyes, the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC), Friends of Abadilla 5, Asian Human Rights and the Lupon Ng Mamamayan, Philippine Jury Campaign had appealed to the previous President Benigno Aquino III for their release.

On September 28, 2011, the Philippines Board of Pardons and Parole after careful review of the Abadilla 5 case in consonance with resolution No. 24-4-10 re Amended Guidelines for Recommending Executive Clemency of the 2006 Revised Manual of the Board of Pardons and Parole RESOLVED TO RECOMMEND to the then President Benigno Aquino III the COMMUTATION of their SENTENCE, and the Department of Justice have also RECOMMENDED THEIR RELEASE SINCE NOVEMBER 2012 on the ground of "REASONABLE DOUBT"
President Benigno Aquino III failed to rectify this miscarriage of justice.

FOUR (4) years have passed by these victims of injustices are still languishing in the maximum security at the Philippine National Bilibid Prison awaiting order from the President of the Philippines for their release. Sad to say, Mr. Lenido Lumanog, one of the victims, is a patient of the Philippine National Kidney Transplant Institute having had a kidney transplant.

In September 2014, Lenido Lumanog and Augusto Santos, two of the victims, authorised the representative of Lupon Ng Mamamayan, Philippine Jury Campaign to represent them thru a Communication to the United Nations Human Rights Committee seeking the UNHRC decision on the continuous detention of the Abadilla 5 inspite of the RECOMMENDATION for their RELEASE by the Board of Pardons and Parole and the Department of Justice.

Let us support these initiatives to correct the miscarriage of justice.

Our petition reinforces the above government recommendations to our Presiden Rodrigo R. Duterte for his executive clemency for the release of the Abadilla 5, who are during the past 20 years have been protesting for their innocence.

We are appealing to all our Kababayan, Pilipino organisations and different religious groups, OFW's, Amnesty International, Human Rights advocates & organisations, other nationalities and students to join, sign and support our petition in support to the Executive Clemency.

Let us sign and share the petition as a claim to our rights for a just and humane society.

Let us “Free the Abadilla 5 Now” for justice and humanitarian sake.

Your 3 minutes time will be the life and liberty of these 5 Pilipinos.

BE THE CHANGE...JOIN US...and MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

SO HELP US GOD.

Salamat po.

12. Katherine Ryan and the BBC, the Filipino community deserves an unreserved apology

This petition is asking for an unreserved apology from the BBC and Katherine Ryan over offence caused to the Filipino people over a 'joke' included in ‘Mock the Week’ which was transmitted at 10pm on 13 June.

Katherine Ryan’s comment came in the final round of the programme called "Scenes We’d Like To See".

During this segment of the show the panel of comedians are given subjects or scenarios and must provide a comedic comment on them. The first one given to the comedians in this round was “Unlikely lines from a cosmetics commercial.” Katherine said 'We don't test our cosmetics on animals, we use Filipino children'

There was no need for Katherine to mention Filipino at all, it has caused offence and we are asking for an unreserved apology!

Please therefore spend a few minutes of your time to read and sign this petition if you agree that it offended Filipinos especially our children...you are free to share and anyone is free to sign from any country. We are not forcing anyone to sign, its your choice and democratic right. Thank you

13. Davao City - Dying nightlife: Change city ordinances

The City of Davao decided for recreational establishments to close EXACTLY at 2am. No ifs, no buts, no maybes, just close at that time. Now, as much as we all know the public reason behind this, I do not understand why it has to be implemented so rigidly.

Maybe our city administration has their own reason to protect us from ourselves, but I'm not so sure if there's a need to mention that businesses and investments will take a slow death over this one, and I'm not just talking about bars, pubs and whatnot. Believe it or not, business from other industries will take a toll as well.

In a general sense, let me put it out that I know entrepreneurs and corporate officers who have skipped the city over another simply because of our dying nightlife (and it is daunting to promote the city's nightlife when it's close to non-existent). It may sound silly but if you can only see the bigger scope of it, you would think twice before having this rule implemented. Of course, matters like this are usually undiscussed by stakeholders because of the topic's silly, childish nature (maybe discussed better in a pub even,) but it is only natural for everyone to want to take a break after a hard day's work. Take that privilege away from them, and it's going to be as dull as a ditchwater for them.

I'm having a feeling, however, that even if people put out a counter-paper for this, they will not be listened to. I really believe the city has its own reasons, which I'm hoping are good and justifiable, which we cannot comprehend at the moment. Because really, this mandate will be the absolute death of our tourism industry, among others.

On a personal note, I give up promoting the city's nightlife to anyone. Maybe it's really high time to invest our nightlife in IGACOS, no?

Thanks to Angel :)

14. Stop mining on Sibuyan Island

Foreign companies (one of them is Australian) are about to start mining in Sibuyan island, Romblon province, Philippines.

We all know what always happens when they do, they simply destroy the nature and affect the environment. Sibuyan island is now well known for its beauty and for having rare vegetation and animal species.

More than 50 000 people live there, and everyone agrees not to allow such thing happens.

15. Remove 'Team Buhay, Team Patay' Posters in Philippine Catholic Churches

When the Commission on Elections of the Philippines asked some Catholic dioceses to remove their 'Team Buhay, Team Patay (Team of Life, Team of Death)' posters, posters suggesting who senatorial candidates must their respective constituents vote in the near May 2013 elections, with their stand on the reproductive health (RH) law as basis, the Catholic Diocese of Bacolod insisted that only the Vatican can order the removal of mentioned posters and they released that statement during the 'sede vacante (vacant seat)' period of the Catholic Church.

Now that the 'sede vacante (vacant seat)' period was over and the Catholic Church has a new pope, His Holiness Pope Francis, it is now the appropriate and proper time to ask the Vatican to order the removal of the said poster. It is an unethical and improper act to put such posters in a place supposed to serve the spiritual needs of the Catholic faithful. The separation of Church and State, both agreed on by the Church and the State, must be upheld always by both sides.

The Church must never involve itself in partisan politics, just like what His Holiness Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI said.

16. Stop the Killing in Sabah, North Borneo

Beginning March 1, Malaysian Special Forces attacked 250 men, women and children from Sulu, Philippines, who have a solid claim to the land with court judgments in their favor.

Many have died on both sides. It could go on for a geneation if not stopped early.

17. Enrile Resign!

Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile has no right to remain as Senate president. He has squandered the people's money by giving it as bonuses to his allies in order to secure his seat as Senate president. He should resign!

18. israelsolidarity

Sixty-five (65) years to the day, Resolution 181 was passed in the United Nations General Assembly recognizing the right of the Jewish people to their own State. Rejection by the Arab nations may have rendered Resolution 181 politically irrelevant. But the prophetic significance of the resolution’s passage remains undiminished. Leading up to the declaration of the State of Israel in May 14, 1948, the resolution marked the beginning of the fulfillment of Ezekiel’s dry bones prophecy - the restoration of the nation of Israel, at long last, in Eretz Israel, the land promised by HASHEM to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob:

‘O dry bones, hear the word of HASHEM! Thus says the Lord HASHEM/ELOHIM to these bones: Behold, I bring a spirit into you, and you will come to life. I will put sinews upon you, I will bring flesh upon you, and I will coat you with skin; then I will put a spirit into you and you will come to life; then you will know that I am HASHEM…He said to me, “Son of Man, these bones – they are the whole House of Israel.” Ezekiel 37:4-6

Yet, from Day 1, statehood for Israel has been fraught with challenges quite unlike any faced by other nations :

• Israel is the only state whose right to exist has been relentlessly questioned;

• Israel is the only UN member state that has been openly targeted for annihilation by another member state (Iran);

• Israel is the only country whose right to defend its citizens from aggression from its enemies, is up for debate among other nations;

• Israel is the only nation whose capital, Jerusalem, other nations have refused to recognize;

• Israel is the only country that has won all its major wars for self-defense, whose defeated adversaries get away with dictating the terms of peace;

• Israel is the only country that has been censured repeatedly by the UN Human Rights Council, which has adopted more resolutions condemning Israel than it has all other member states combined.

• Today, November 29, 2012, leaders of the Palestinian Authority, with the support of the United Nations, will take another major step towards statehood. A resolution will again be introduced at the UN for the recognition of Palestinian-controlled areas of Israel as “observer state” ultimately to be carved out of Israel as a separate state of Palestine, with Jerusalem as capital.

• More chilling is supreme guide of the Muslim Brotherhood Sheikh Mohammed Badie’s dismissal of the idea of a Palestinian State by UN efforts. Instead, Badie threatened that Jihad (war) on Jerusalem is the only way to seize control.

Against Your nation they plot deviously, they take counsel against those sheltered by You. They said, “Come, let us cut them off from nationhood, so Israel’s name will not be remembered anymore!” For they take counsel together unanimously, they strike a covenant against You … Psalm 83:4-6

19. Anti-Political Dynasty

Political dynasties continue to dominate the country’s electoral system with almost 70% candidates coming from a political clan. According to the study by the Asian Institute of Management Policy Center (AIMPC), poverty is more prominent on areas under a political dynasty. The same study also shows that legislators belonging to a political dynasty are wealthier than those who are not.

This provision was ratified on Feb.2, 1897 but no law has been passed to implement it, mainly because the legislators themselves are members of a political clan.

According to the 1987 Constitution of the Republic of the Philippines, Article II, Declaration of Principles and State Policies, Section 26, The State shall guarantee equal access to opportunities for public service and prohibit political dynasties as may be defined by law.

20. P-Noy 2 rescind PRC foreign medmission regulations

PREAMBLE

The Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC) approved in a resolution dated June 21, 2012 a new set of requirements regarding fees, admin civil penal sanctions, liability malpractice insurance applied to foreign medical professionals who are conducting humanitarian medical missions in the Philippines. The PRC is an office attached to the Office of President Noynoy Aquino.

Although, some Filipino professionals may opt to renew their old PRC medical licenses for the purpose of qualifying as non foreign practitioners, however, there is a requirement to pay a penalty equivalent to the number of years they allowed their license to expire.

excerpts:
http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/global-filipino/08/15/12/fil-am-mds-protest-vs-new-ph-rules

“To me this is R.I.P. to our enviable, proud tradition of giving back to our less fortunate fellow countrymen” Dr. Juan Montero II of Chesapeake, Va.

“When the requirement becomes too difficult, less physicians will volunteer their time to join medical missions” Dr. Zorayda Lee-Llacer of Maryland

The need for help from overseas Filipinos couldn’t have been more relevant with days of torrential rains flooding large parts of the Metro Manila region and surrounding provinces

http://globalbalita.com/2012/08/16/medical-missions-to-the-philippines-may-disappear/

"several missionary groups have cancelled their forthcoming Medical Mission...we feel we are unwanted...subjected to superfluous admin, civil, criminal & malpractice liabilities. We do not wish to be subjected to unscrupulous/frivolous medical lawsuits in our humanitarian medical services" Dr. Cesar D. Candari of Henderson, Nevada

21. Build a Flood-free Philippines

Over the past 5 years, the Philippine Nation has experienced disastrous flooding. The Filipinos, though a resilient and optimistic people, can only endure so much. Not so long ago, Typhoon Ketsana (PAGASA: Ondoy) claimed the lives of over 400 citizens and displaced thousands of families from their homes. Then in December 2011, Tropical Storm Sendong devastated our brothers in Mindanao and left us with a death toll of over 1000.

The Filipinos, as a nation, must act to ensure that these tragedies do not affect us ever again.

By signing The Flood-free Philippines Petition, you are accepting that it is your moral and civic obligation to do your part in the rehabilitation of our environment and that you will continue to call on your Leaders to start an honest to goodness flood way plan.

Scientists, Engineers, Volunteers, Educators, we call on you to share your expertise by making this plan truly foolproof.

22. PNOY officials and employees of the Philippines government, please sign the waiver

Preamble

During the recent impeachment trial of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the Philippines, we witnessed the ambiguities of competing laws enacted by the legislative bodies against those laws enshrined in the Constitution regarding pesos and foreign account deposits.

Although, there is already a waiver in favor of the Office of the Ombudsman provided for in the Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Net Worth (SALN), however, its limitation because of the strict confidentiality of foreign account deposits, was understood even by those among us, not versed in the legal complexities of the on-going trial.

The limitation of the SALN waiver has been further validated when after the impeachment trial, the:

1) Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) found it necessary to avail of the WAIVER voluntarily submitted to the Impeachment Court by the defendant

2) the Constitutional body convened for the purpose of vetting the name of applicants to the vacant position of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, added the submission of the WAIVER in addition to the SALN as a new requirement

Furthermore, our research at the online archives of the Senate reveals the unsucessful passage of legislative bills introduced religiously since 2001 to compel the submission of WAIVER. Senators Lacson, Escudero and the bill co-sponsors believe that the WAIVER is a necessary tool to fight the endemic graft and corruption in the Philippines.

We, therefore, humbly submit this petition.

23. MANILA wants KIDS IN GLASS HOUSES

We want them here coz they're awesome.

Kids in Glass Houses are a Welsh rock band from Cardiff. The band's name is inspired by the lyrics "not throwing stones at you anymore" from Glassjaw song "Tip Your Bartender".

The band achieved success on the strength of the singles "Give Me What I Want" and "Saturday" off their debut album Smart Casual in 2008. The band released their second album Dirt in early 2010, releasing four singles; most notably "Matters at All". The band's third album, In Gold Blood, was released on 15 August 2011.

24. Support for ICC Judge Miriam Santiago

This is a declaration of support for Dr. Miriam Santiago on her successful election to the 9-year term International Criminal Court (ICC) Judge position.

Dr. Santiago is the first Filipino and the first Asian from a developing state to serve as ICC judge.

25. Build a Culture of Peace, Not of Violence, in Our Country. Support the CITIZEN PROTECTION ACT OF 2010.

The possession in public places of firearms and deadly weapons should be authorized only for those directly and primarily engaged in police, military, or security services, and even then, only to enforce the law under strict and clearly defined guidelines. Such measure does not in any way impair the privilege of responsible and qualified citizens to keep licensed firearms at home or sports clubs.
 
On 21 September 2010, Pro-Life Philippines Foundation, Inc., ABA Party-List and Ang Kapatiran Party petitioned the House of Representatives to enact the Citizen Protection Act (CPA) of 2010 – an Act to Regulate the Bearing of Firearms and Deadly Weapons in Public Places, Provide Penalties for its Violation, Provide General Amnesty and Financial Rewards for Voluntary Surrender and Decommissioning of the Same and Appropriate Funds Therefor, and for Other Purposes.​

The CPA of 2010 is a practical measure that, among others, will:
 
1. Bring Down Gun-related Crimes: Statistics from the PNP show that from 2004 to 2008, 97.7 percent of gun-related crimes involved loose firearms, making the Philippines 10th in gun homicide rates worldwide.  However, during the imposition of the five-month gun ban in the 2010 elections, the incidence of crime in the country fell by nearly 70 percent as compared to the same period in 2009, from 502,655 reported crimes to 157,674 cases nationwide.  
 
2. Assist the PNP and Empower Communities in Peace-Keeping:  This Act will help the police fight crime and violence on the streets, isolate and easily identify outlaws and violators of this Act, thus facilitating their arrest and confiscation of their weapons.  Concerned citizens can blow their whistle without fear that they are pointing to the wrong person.  Without this Act, it is difficult to distinguish criminals from plainclothesmen or from those with permit to carry, or from bodyguards. Sometimes, criminals pretend to be plainclothesmen, at other times plainclothesmen pretend to be criminals.  It is about time to separate the grain from the chaff.
 
3. Keep in Jail Gun-bearing Criminals and Insurgents:  Criminals and insurgents, who are caught with the illegal possession of firearm even on crimes in which bail is allowed and whose cases are being heard, are immediately liable for the violation of this Act, punishable by imprisonment of not less than 12 years and 1 day nor more than 20 years without parole and a fine of not less than P50,000 nor more than P300,000. What this Act seeks to implement are measures to control if not eradicate the presence of firearms in the streets and unauthorized areas or places.  We cannot allow our country to have a proliferation of firearms, which are the main instruments of violence in the country and also the main instruments used by threat groups like the CPP-NPA, the renegade MNLF and MILF, and even the syndicates.
 
4. End Private Armies.  Section 6 (Who may be assigned security personnel or bodyguards) of the Act provides:  When circumstances warrant, including but not limited to threats to life and security, a private individual or public official, may, upon application, be assigned regular members of the PNP or the AFP or the National Bureau of Investigation, and as augmentation, duly licensed/authorized Protective Agents of Private Detective Agencies, to provide security, for a specified duration.
 
5. Put an End to Illegal Firearms:  Section 10 (General Amnesty) of this Act provides for financial rewards to those who take advantage of the general amnesty whereby individuals may voluntarily surrender unlicensed firearms with no questions asked and without incurring any criminal or civil liability. Section 11 provides for decommissioning of surrendered and confiscated firearms and deadly weapons.

The CPA of 2010 brings with it a counterpart bill in the Senate, SB No. 129 or the Firearms Regulation Act of 2010, filed by Sen. Franklin Drilon.

In an open letter dated 30 January 2011, supporters of both bills - Mga Tagatulak ng Kapayapaan - beseeched President Benigno Aquino III to certify both bills as urgent for immediate approval by both House of Congress.

Among all Filipinos, only a little over 1% have registered firearms and a fraction of this with permits to carry.

Government's indifference to this measure is inconceivable.

26. Reduce Electric Power Rates in the Philippines

Recent study shows that the Philippines has the highest residential power rates not just in Asia but in the entire world. An article recently released by one of the national papers in the Philippines states that the Philippines has already overtaken Japan as the country with the highest residential power rates.

The Philippines is still a developing country but ironically it charges higher power rates compared to other highly developed countries.

27. Justice for Century-old Acacia Trees and Local Heritage

The matter stemmed from the cutting of two (2) century-old acacia trees in front of the public market of Guindulman, Bohol on August 19, 2009 without permit from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and no consultation with residents, considering said trees were of rich historical, cultural value to the town, protected and covered by environmental laws like R.A. 3571, P.D. 953, among others.

We want a full investigation and comprehensive recommendations.

28. Implement the Tridentine Latin Mass

A petition for the endorsement and the strict implementation of the Tridentine Latin Mass in every diocese.

30. We Want SS4 IN MANILA

Rumors: That maybe "Big Bang" will be the one who'll have the concert here not the SUPER JUNIOR.

But as an ELF we want to catch the last glimpse & at least see Angel Eeteuk & Heechul celebrate their birthday in JULY! Before they'll be send in Military
