THE GENERAL AVELINO RAZON
FORUM IN SAN FRANCISCO
This was held on March 14,
2007, at the Philippine Consulate in San Francisco. More than a month
ago. My apologies for being late in sharing this with you. As the saying
goes, better late than never. I don’t have to do this, of course. But I
am thinking that the $30 or so I spend in attending gatherings like
this, aside from the time which I can devote to other equally important
things, will be wasted if the proceedings are not shared. Again, read it
or delete. It is your choice.
As in the General-Secretary
Angelo Reyes Forum, I was not keen on attending. I felt that I did not
need any more information on the killings in the Philippines, killings
that intensified during the days of the No. 1 UP alumnus, killings whose
perpetrators are still unknown and are still roaming around, free.
There are just so many
unsolved killings in this very religious country in the world. For
instance, who abducted Fr. Rudy Romano on July 11, 1985? This cruel and
brazen event led the European Union to suspend official development
assistance to the Philippines. A resolution in the US Senate condemning
the abduction was passed. In Europe, an all night vigil and concert was
held in Ireland led by the congregation of Fr. Rudy, the Redemptorists.
But we don’t still know what was done to Fr. Rudy Romano.
Who killed UP Medical Doctor
Bobby de la Paz on April 23, 1983 when all he was doing was providing
medical services to the impoverished in Samar who were so poor. Was he
killed because he was suspected, without any evidence, that he was
treating the NPAs in Samar? Hence, he was dangerous to the Conjugal
What happened to the drunken
soldiers who killed the Public Works driver in Motiong, Samar during the
administration of Tita Cory? Were they ever charged, convicted, and
How about Mr. Gayondato of
Gandara, Samar who was abducted in 1990? What happened to him?
Of course, many of our poor
soldiers may have been slain by their own cousins and relatives too.
They became soldiers because there was nowhere else to go.
Killings, killings, and more
killings. When will it ever end…
As I said, I was not going to
attend the General Avelino Razon Forum. But I changed my mind. There was
Professor-President Jose Aliling IV also who was badgering me about that
Forum. He thought it was a “PNB” forum with Lucio Tan as the speaker. He
did not clean his eardrums, so he thought he heard PNB, not PNP. If it
was a PNB Forum, I think he was going to ask how rich Lucio Tan is and
why he has two airlines and how much he owes the BIR in taxes.
I changed my mind also because
as a Filipino, I thought it is my obligation to provide moral support to
the San Francisco Consulate, especially considering its impressive
performance. Numbers do not lie. And they can be compared with similar
This one was a matter of
personal sympathy. The party of Gen. Razon was not allowed to present
their case in Washington, D.C. So kawawa naman iyong Troika. Sayang lang
iyong pamasahe at per diem. Moreover, I believe that NOT all those in
uniform in the Philippines are nincompoops, corrupt, and bloodthirsty. I
remembered my uncle, a PC, who apprehended many criminals and outlaws in
the mountains of Samar. He was just doing his duty. He was a hero to
many of us. That was the time when those who were sworn to uphold the
laws were not outlaws.
When I arrived, General Razon,
Cols Pangilinan and Benedicto Jose were already there. They were early.
Unlike General Angelo Reyes and Comelec Chairman Abalos. We were
impressed. There was also another surprise. Consul Patty Paez, a
classmate in a graduate course in Diliman, (you want to know the course
title? “Socialism and Capitalism in Asia”) accompanied the three
gentlemen to San Francisco. I have not seen her in many years. But she
had become lovelier. Indeed, as the Messenger of the Gods, she must be
enjoying rubbing shoulders with them and sending out those announcements
from Malacanang. She has to help her bosses who don’t know how to use
the Internet and e-mail. (Unlike my very good friend, and and friend of
Atty. Rudy Quimbo, Senator Flavier's CEP. Katrina Segundo, Senator
Pimentel, Senator Gordon and ex UP President, Dr. Jose Abueva, magaling
mag-email. Iyong Santo Papa mayroon yatang email address, right Elsa?
Did he reply to you when you wrote to him about the summary killings in
the Catholic Country of Asia?)
Anyway, the Forum started with
a statement by Deputy Consul General Fred Santos who was the Consulate’s
OIC. ConGen Sanchez was in Manila exchanging thoughts with her fellow
diplomats how to make the Philippine image more palatable in the World
Wide Web, I think.
Then Gen Razon started his
Power Point Presentation. Basically, the presentation was also in the
handouts that were distributed to the assembly.
(N.B. Ado Paglinawan has
written very extensively on the materials and the data presented by the
Philippine Military. And obviously, they can be Googled also. And
Karapatan and Bulatlat and Arkibong Bayan would have the materials that
you want to know. So I am not going to punish myself by trying to
remember the salient points of Gen. Razon’s presentation.)
But I believe that the
following points which are in the “AIDE MEMOIRE” that was distributed by
Gen Razon, are worth sharing:
“The Philippine Government
strongly condemns politically-motivated killings – a sad legacy of
decades of political violence – which undermine Philippine democracy.
“We share the concern of the
international community on this issue and we unequivocally state that
there is no government policy of condoning these killings.
“We are determined to put an
end to these killings and prosecute and punish the guilty.
“The Philippine Government has
maintained a high level of transparency and willingness to cooperate
with the international community.”
Gen Razon singled out
Karapatan, Bayan Muna, Anakpawis and Gabriela as the most vocal
protesters of the summary killings in the Philippines. He said they were
obstructionist. That they had a larger agenda, that they were fronting
for some other organizations or terrorist groups, that he could not
understand why they were banking on the support of the US Senate and the
US government when they were “anti-American” in the first place.
He said that some 99 Special
Courts have been created, special prosecutors have been appointed, and
that the government is designing an improved witness protection program
to address summary killings.
He cited the order of the
President that the Maoist Rebellion should be settled once and for all.
But he qualified that this was not an order for all-out war – of killing
all those who are dissatisfied and unhappy at the way things are
happening in the Philippines. He said that this involves 80%
development-nation building-a better quality of life. And only 20%
Colonel Pangilinan emphasized
that the AFP (Armed Forces of the Philippines) is “not brutal, not
Gen Razon informed the
assembly that there are 1,000 police stations which have no offices;
they are squatters. And you won’t believe this: Some 20,000 policemen
have no firearms!!!
He cited his participation in
pursuing the guilty in the Marlene Esperat case. I butted in that “Ado
Paglinawan, one of the harshest critics of this administration, has
publicly expressed his gratitude to you, General, for helping resolve
the Marlene Esperat case.”
With Consul Raffey Hermoso as
the Moderator, the question and answer period started. I was the first
one to raise my hand and was accordingly given the floor.
I expressed my personal
anxieties about the Forum, namely that I was not sure at all if Gen
Razon and his colleagues and superiors in the Philippines would be
affected by what they can glean from the sentiments of Forum
participants in America – in Washington, D.C., in San Francisco, and in
Los Angeles where they were also expected to present their side. Are we
getting across to them at all? Do they consider the general sentiments
of the Filipinos in America? Or do we only irritate them and prod them
to be more irrational and more violent?
But I told the General that I
was there to add to the statistics, to the number of people attending
the Forum, so that the San Francisco Consulate is not found wanting.
I also expressed my personal
sentiment that “Anyone who was a classmate of Consul Patty Paez walks on
water with me.” General Razon said that she and Consul Patty Paez went
to the UP High together.
But I did say something about
the killings. I asked General Razon: “Bakit puputulan pa ng ulo iyong
kawawang taga Samar whose headless body was dumped along the Hell Roads
of Samar? Bakit hindi na lang pinatay with a clean shot to the heart?”
The headless Samarnon was in handcuffs. This happened during the stint
of the President’s hero in Samar. At that time, so many were in the
“Death List”. Even those who had renounced the armed struggle and the
protracted war. To protect themselves, they were ready to climb the
mountains of Samar again. (I shared this with Senator Pimentel, na wala
din naman magawa. But I had to tell the bright hope of Samar. Antonio
Eduardo Bermejo Nachura.
I asked the Gen Razon if it is
possible for them to rethink their dependence on the theories of war of
West Point, Annapolis, PMA, Rumsfeld, and Karl Rove. I asked why he and
the powerful people in Pilipinas, those who can order people to kill,
why can’t they talk and negotiate with those other powerful people in
the Netherlands and in Batangas (I mean Ka Roger, Ka Satur, and the
Political Bureau with the good offices of possibly one of the brightest
movie actresses in the Philippines, Ka Vilma).
If the macho colleagues of San
Francisco Consul General Sanchez and Ambassador Gaa in the Netherlands
could attend a Christmas Party in the Netherlands where the Beloved
Warrior could exhibit his terpsichorean skills while gyrating with the
lovely, pulchritudinous and voluptuous Ara Mina, in a spirit of
reconciliation, goodwill and hope for a better tomorrow, why not resume
the talks between Ka Luis Jalandoni et al and Gen Razon et al?
In the case of the National
Democratic Front who are metastasizing with Akbayan, Sanlakas, Partido
ng Manggawa and the YOUng, someone volunteered to raise funds so that Ka
Luis can visit Montevideo, Urugay, in the company of the Samarnon expert
on the Frente Amplio, Adelbert Batica. Since both speak the language of
Padre Damaso and Padre Salvi, both can consult the icons of the Frente
Amplio and ask the living Tupamaros why they stopped the armed struggle
to join in the electoral process. And now they are in control of
Uruguay. No one was killed in the election and nobody paid PTOC to the
Tupamaros and the Frente Amplio.
Since they would already be in
Latin America, Ka Luis, et al can go to Peru and ask Col. Humala what
happened to the Sendero Luminoso and the Tupac Amaru and then go to
Nicaragua and inquire from Daniel Ortega why the Frente Sandinista
Liberacion Nacional is now soliciting foreign investments and American
tourists to go to Managua and not shouting: “Himagsikan or Kamatayan!”
I mentioned to Gen Razon the
example of Malaysia. What did Tengku Abdul Rahman and PM Mahathir do,
with the support of the China and the English, to resolve the so-called
Emergency, the Maoist revolution of Chin Peng in Malaysia. It ended with
an honorable settlement to all parties concerned. And now, many of our
people are in Malaysia as servants and menials and TNT because life is
better in Malaysia than in the Philippines. It seems, Filipinos would
jump from the boats carrying them from Kota Kinabulu to Zamboanga or
Bongao. They would swim back to Sabah.
“Yes! Yes!” Gen Razon said.
“We are studying and learning…from Suharto”. I blurted “No not Suharto!”
Otherwise, some 3 million CPP-NPA-NDF-Etc guerillas will be fed to the
starving crocodiles. And the leader would only supplant Suharto as the
No. 1 in Transparency International. Except, we may have no more
crocodiles. They are being killed by the freedom fighters in Isabela.
I could have gone on and on.
But Greg Makabenta was signaling time out with his hands.
My misplaced peroration was
followed by a question from Mr. Tereso Ugalino, President of the
Magsingal, Pangasinan Association of America. For the first time in my
life, I saw an Ilocano crying., He was very husky and very dark. Oozing
with machismo, more macho than Nes Duldulao, Apo ni Lam-ang. His voice
breaking, and unable to hold back his tears, he was crying while asking
Gen. Razon why in Magsingal, someone was killed with high powered
weapons who used an ambulance to escape. The inference was that the
killer was associated with the government. He could not contain his
anguish, this leader of the Magsingalanons in Ameirca. So one of the
Consuls gave him a torn piece of toilet paper to wipe his nose and the
tears falling on his face. He had to stop talking every now and then.
There were other questioners:
Greg Makabenta of course who tried to pin Gen Razon to say Yes or No to
which Gen Razon responded that Greg’s question was like comparing
Kalabaw Manga to Caimito. Since Gen Razon was profusely writing, Greg
asked him if he was going to be reported to some other people in
Pilipinas. The General told Greg that he was taking notes so that he
would remember the suggestions from the Forum participants.
Aliling IV wrote his observations on a dirty bond paper.
Mr. Victor Barrios, ever the
Godfather of Kuya Ted Aquino and the most fervent advocate of the Global
Filipinos, asked Gen Razon to provide a security guard to Kuya Ted
Aquino to keep him safe.
Miss Fernandez, a lady from
the San Mateo county, asked the General why the Philippines is not like
Again, Mr. Rudy Ascercion,
Commissioner of the San Francisco War Commission and its Director of
Public Relations, and who is a good friend of California Governor Arnold
Schwarzenneger, the Triple Citizen, showed his gallantry and
graciousness when he opted not to ask a question even if it was supposed
to be his turn. He gave the floor to me.
The bottomline of this Forum
on the Summary Killings in the Philippines?
I believe General Razon is
very sincere. I think he is serious in trying to make a difference. But
can he do something? Are his hands tied? Will the Summary Killings
continue despite his sincere efforts to bring the killers to justice and
to stop this carnage in the only Christian Country in Asia.
When I shared my unhappiness
with a former major who might have been hunting the NPAs in Samar and
vice versa (but we don’t talk about this), he simply blurted out: “Eh,
the NPAs are killing. Hence, they have to be killed also.”
I sheepishly replied: “They
have to talk to each other. Otherwise, this will never end. It will be
like the Muslim rido in Mindanao. You kill us, we kill you, on and on

A reaction from the post of
I am from Catbalogan. However,
your comment on boycotting the products of Calbayog will just divide the
people of Samar. Yes, I am also furious with the attitude of the Mayor
of Calbayog. He is so selfish of giving these municipalities a chance to
Sarmiento? tama ba ito? is
just being practical. The city allocation of funds will be lessened
because of the inclusion. However, as a Samarnon, he should know the
fact that ever since Catbalogan wants to become a city. So why should he
act such selfish, bullshit move?
If he really cares for Samar,
then he should be in defense with the creation of Catbalogan as a city.
Or baka naman natatakot lang sya mabawasan ang budget para ikurakot?
Just my opinion.

Reply to Rodrigo's appeal:
Hello, we don't need to
boycott the products from Calbayog. That's too rude. I come from
Calbayog and I love some products of Catbalogan specially the very
affordable prices of your merchandise. I support Catbalogan for its
cityhood, and that's true. You really deserve it anyway. By history, I
was really wondering why for so long now, Catbalogan which deserves to
be a city was never been granted to become one.
I understand your feelings and
concern but come to think of it, if you boycott Calbayog products, do
you think it would suffer? Instead, tell your friends and relatives in
Calbayog not to vote it's candidates for mayoralty, representative,
board members, etc. I hope you got my point. But definitely, I will vote
candidates who support Catbalogan's cityhood. As I said, people from
Catbalogan deserve to be say ''I come from Catbalogan City''. Long live

Mabuhay an Catbalogan City! I
am blessed to be in your city for 3 weeks, I will be filming a small
documentary on a group of missionaries. I am very excited, although a
little nervous as I wont know anybody. This will be my second time to
Samar, I stayed in Borongan a few years ago and it has never left me. I
agree with the actions of the "Gugma Han Samar" and encourage all of you
to get involved in the future of Samar. To quote your national proverb
"An diri maaram lumingi han tinikangan, di maulpot ha kakadtoan" it says
you have a future!
I hope to capture a number of
beautiful photos of which I will gladly share/post a link for you, all

Mr. Rodrigo, kon an amon mayor

Mayor Sarmiento nadire nga an iya budget maibanan. Dire manla an

karyuyag ko nga umuswag an Catbalogan, mag kamay ada airport ha Buri,
maupay nga mga subdivision, hospital, presohan, beach resorts.
Kon ikokompara ta an Calbayog
it will be an injustice to Catbalogan, Calbayog become the second
cleanest city in the entire Philippines. We have a clean City that the
people are proud of, and Catbalogan can be the cleanest city and a
beautiful place if the governmetn will really help Catbalogan. I really
am proud of the incumbent mayor kay naupay niya an pantalan. Who ever
wins maybe they can close the resort in front of the camposanto or
renovate it, mahugaw, kaarawod ha mga tourista. An aton mercado ha
Catbalogan, kinahanglan upayon mahugaw. And we need to put up
subdiviions complete with water and good roads. We need to expand
outside of the city proper. Just a suggestion. I am a Catbaloganon by

Here is a little story of mine
when I went to visit my childhood town of Catbalogan about 3 years ago.
I used to live in one of the Puroks in Catbalogan and went to High
School in SSPC now SSU. I was so glad to see my classmates and friends
after so many years of not seeing them. Then one day my classmate said
to me, "The headmaster at our elementary school is asking if you could
donate or contribute something for the school's needs". Feeling obliged
as I went to that school, I gave her a few thousand Pesos. Two years
went by, and I went to visit the place again. I saw the same friends
again, had a nice time, and again my friend said, "the church in our
village needs some maintaining, can you spare a few Pesos?" I ask her
what happened to the money I gave her for the school? She said she gave
it to the school but didn't actually know what they did with it. They
have a list of people's names who makes contributions towards the
school, but she didn't see my name on it.
So I was wondering, is this
how they con people from abroad? By emotional blackmail? I attend to my
moral responsibilities where I am, and whenever I think there's no foul
play. But it doesn't take a fool to figure out when you're being taken
for a ride. Let this be a lesson for you balikbayans. Make sure your
donations are going to the right causes and not in someone's wallet.

Mabuhay an mga bag-o nga ciudad, Catbalogan City, ngan an Borongan City,
I hope Catarman will become a City too. If other place in Luzon, Visayas
and Mindanao can profit from it why not from Samar. Budget increase in
this new city will help develop Samar. My only hope and pray that it
will not go to the pocket of the officials who are corrupt. But to the
infra structures and project for the people. Hospitals, library, schools,
and sports and arts center, or historical restoration projects, or
maybe we need a zoo, and a good prison system with gardening and own
food production, so they can live and learn from there mistakes.
