Dengue at ang politika ng mga epidemya sa kasaysayan

Nang isakatuparan ng mga Amerikano ang rekonsentrasyon ng mga populasyon sa mga bayang itinuturing na pugad ng mga ‘irreconcilables’ o mga tumututol sa pananakop ng mga Amerikano, nilayon nila na pigilan ang pagdaloy ng mga rekurso at suplay ng mga armas, pagkain at gamot sa mga rebolusyonaryo at nakikipaglabang Pilipino mula sa mga barrio. Dahil dito, pinagsama-sama ng mga Amerikano sa maliit na lugar lamang ang mga sibilyang Pilipino at nilimitahan ang kanilang pag-alis sa mga rekonsentradong lugar. Nagkataon namang ito ang panahon na lumalawak ang kolera sa kanayunan! The post Dengue at ang politika ng mga epidemya sa kasaysayan appeared first on Bulatlat......»»

Ikatlo, pareho silang mag-isip dahil sa limitadong bokabularyo: Para sa kanila, ang aktibista at komunista ay iisa. The post Pagtuturo sa panahon ng panduduro appeared first on Bulatlat......»»

‘Mabining Mandirigma’ puts a spotlight on feudal patronage politics

Truly, the descendants of the wicked remain wicked to the poor and cordial to the foreigner. It is evident in violent demolitions of communities such as Sitio San Roque in Quezon City, Aetas in Clark, Dumagat in Sierra Madre, and Sitio Aroma in Cebu to make way for development projects; it is evident when our islands are being sold--literally and virtually--to foreign business in the pursuit of investment.
