Town learns story of ‘Colorum’ hero

Most residents of this bustling eastern Pangasinan town are familiar about the concrete monument at the center of a road intersection here. They are clueless, however, as to why and how the human figure astride a horse was put up in a public place for everybody to see.   It is the statue of Pedro Calosa, but there is no inscription to explain that he led the Colorum Revolt in 1931, attacking the municipal hall and burning land documents to rally support against American colonial rule.   Councilor Romeo Vidal, 51, only learned about Calosa from his great-grandfather's stories when he was a boy. The man, he was told, fed his carabaos and cows on treetops because h...Keep on reading: Town learns story of ‘Colorum’ hero.....»»

Robin says ‘Marawi’ not gov’t propaganda, but…

This is not government propaganda," said actor Robin Padilla of Sheron Dayoc's "Children of the Lake," a film on the Marawi siege that he is currently working on with Piolo Pascual.

DAVAO CITY --- The number was not as big as in other areas during the commemoration of the Edsa People Power Revolt here. Only about 500 people showed up on Saturday at a rally here to denounce the alleged "resurgent tyranny and dictatorship" of President Rodrigo Duterte and his administration's supposed disrespect for human rights.
