Cong. Lord Allan Velasco celebrates birthday with ride for Mindanao earthquake victims and LoveLAVLove concert in Marinduque




Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Velasco is celebrating his birthday today with a ride for a cause that would raise funds for the victims of the earthquake in Mindanao.

Dubbed “LAV ko mag ride,” Velasco and some 80 riders, including presidential daughter Davao Mayor Sara Duterte and Senator Bato dela Rosa, hit the road at exactly 6:30 a.m. from the Petron Station at the South Luzon Expressway in San Pedro, Laguna.

After the scenic ride through the Quezon National Park, the riders take on a three-hour boat ride to Balanacan Port in Marinduque for a pit stop.

Rep. Velasco and Mayor Inday Sara Duterte will lead a gift-giving activity in Boac before the riders and their entourage stir up the dust anew to “Love LAV Love” birthday concert at the Marinduque Convention Center.

Among the guest performers are Andrew E, Moymoy Palaboy and Roadfill; Osang Soliven of X-Factor; Lucky Robles and Julius Cawaling of Tawag ng Tanghalan, and Ragen Angel Peñaflor of The Voice Kids.


Tomorrow, on the second leg of the tour, the riders are to swing by the century-old Sta Cruz Church, the powdery sands of Torrijos Beach and to Boac to savor the delightful Kari-kari and Uraro.

By 2:30 p.m. Velasco and the rest of the riders will be heading back to Balanacan Port to commence their return ride to Manila.

Those who joined the ride are expected to donate to the victims of the Mindanao quake.

“I’d like to thank all those who joined me in this ride. Your participation will go a long way to ease the suffering of the victims of the earthquake in Mindanao,” Velasco said.

This is a special day for me, and this fund raiser is my way of giving back my blessings to our brothers and sisters in Mindanao,” Velasco said.

NHCP finally recognizes February 21, 1920 as Marinduque's foundation date as we know it


Primary historical sources don't lie. In the case of Marinduque's foundation date, the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP), previously certified two different dates namely, 21 January 1920 and 22 February 1920 as Marinduque's foundation date.

Finally, NHCP, in a letter dated 4 November signed by NHCP Chair, Dr. Rene R. Escalante, addressed to Gov. Presbitero J. Velasco, Jr, settled the question by stating, thus: "While the NHCP previously stated two different dates (21 January 1920 and 22 February 1920), as Marinduque's date of establishment as an independent province, allow us to correct our earlier positions by recognizing 21 February 1920 as the appropriate foundation date of the Province of Marinduque... Gov. Gen Francis Burton Harrison signed Executive Order No. 12 on 21 February 1920, reestablishing Marinduque as an independent province in conformity to Act No. 2880."

As far as this blogger is concerned, this is a matter that has been resolved a long time ago in fact, since the first commemoration of "Araw ng Marinduque" in 2008, that led to the issuance of an Executive Order by former Gov. Jose Antonio Carrion in 2008, and an SP Ordinance No. 81 dated 28 Jan. 2009, declaring “February 21 of every year as "Araw ng Marinduque”.  What then led to the latter-day confusion? Will blog about this for the sake of truth and posterity...

Meaning of the Marinduque Centennial Logo

LOGO DESIGN: Morion Heart: Marinduque@100

LOGO ELEMENTS: 
Main elements in the logo are the Morion mask, the number 100 turned into a heart and the words 'Marinduque' and 'Sentenaryo'. The striking features are the Morion mask and the number 100 turned into a heart. They unify the whole logo and convey the essential message which is the 100th Anniversary of the Province of Marinduque.

The heart is at the center of the logo which is apropos since Marinduque is also the center of the Philippines. 

Minor elements in the logo are the texts "1920 - 2020" and "Alab ng Puso ng PILIPINAS". The minor texts reinforce the major elements. The Philippine Flag and the provincial seal are incorporated into the two zero's of 100. The heart-shaped "100' is reinforced by the words "Alab", "Puso" and "Pilipinas" (in all capital letters) signifying that Marinduque is the island which is the heart of the Philippines. Ultimately, by celebrating the heart of the Philippines, we are honoring the entire country. The colorful ethnic pattern design in the background signifies Marinduque's colorful and significant pre-historic past.

LOGO MEANING:

Morion Mask - stands for the Marinduqueños . Marinduque is home of the original Moriones festival and the celebration of the said festival is synonymous to Marinduque, said tradition being shared by all the six towns of this historic island-province. 

100 Years - is heart-shaped because Marinduque is known to be the heart of the Philippines being geographically located in the center of the Philippines. The upper portion is unmistakably "100" with the two zeros replaced by the Philippine Flag and the provincial logo of Marinduque. The heart is also a symbol of LOVE and CARING. This signifies the love and care of  Marinduqueños for each other, and their zealous love for their island-province. The lower portion of the heart also implies the growth of a seedling, just as agriculture is the main economic driver of the province. Agriculture, love and caring (malasakit), has characterized the Marinduque province for over 100 years.

The Provincial Seal of Marinduque - is incorporated in the number 100 which, in turn is turned into a heart. But upon closer look, the provincial seal itself contains the map of Marinduque. Hence, the center of the center is still Marinduque. The heart of the heart of the logo still celebrates Marinduque. 

From the Office of the Governor, Provincial Government of Marinduque

Rep. Velasco's statement on urgent need for additional power supply

Photo: bworldonline
As a follow-up to Meralco’s recently conducted Competitive Selection Process (CSP) last September, which successfully resulted in the award of Power Supply Agreements (PSAs) that are very price competitive and lower than prevailing generation charges, we hope that the Department of Energy (DoE), as well as industry players and stakeholders, act swiftly on the next round of biddings for muchneeded greenfield baseload capacity.

We believe that with the increasing demand of power being projected for the coming years, our country urgently needs additional capacity to support the current Administration’s golden age of infrastructure. The record number of Yellow and Red Alerts that plagued Luzon Grid consumers this year should not be allowed to recur in the coming years.

We look forward to the start of the next round of bidding for new baseload capacity, which will definitely be a welcome development, as this is aligned with the Duterte Administration’s goal of bringing down the cost of electricity and ensuring a steady and continued supply of power across the country. We also call on the other
distribution utilities and electric cooperatives to expedite their own CSPs, in strict compliance with the DoE’s CSP guidelines, to support the building of greenfield power
facilities.

We call on both public and private sector to boost such crucial government initiatives in finding ways to provide adequate power supply at lower costs to the end-users.
This is especially in line with the landmark Republic Act No. 11371, known as Murang Kuryente Act signed in August 2019, which set the stage for this milestone step to
make available a reliable, resilient and inexpensive energy supply to Filipino consumers.

Marinduque joins nation in prayer and mourning the passing of Senate President Nene Pimentel

Flag at half-mast at the provincial capitol of Marinduque.

The Province of Marinduque pays its respect to the Hon. Aquilino Quilinging Pimentel, Jr. by lowering the Philippine flag at half-mast at the provincial capitol for the last three days.

In Gov. Presbitero Velasco, Jr.'s facebook page, is stated in part: "We will forever honor his existence and vital contribution to the Local Government. From all the Officers and Staff of the Marinduque Provincial Government, our utmost condolence to the bereaved Family."

In a separate statement, Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Velasco has also joined the nation in mourning the passing of the former Senate president. "For us in Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban), the party which he founded, he was not just a mentor but a game changer who helped strengthen the country's local government system", the lawmaker said.

"We shall be forever grateful for your legacy and contribution in championing democracy, electoral reforms and devolution of powers for stronger local governance. May your family and loved ones find strength in our dear Lord in this very difficult time," he added.

Expropriation of all Marcopper lots titled or untitled; SP to national govt: Intervene on threats to people and environment


Gov. Presby Velasco, Jr.
Marinduque Governor Presbitero J. Velasco, Jr. has formally endorsed to the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Marinduque the passage of an ordinance for the expropriation of all the lots of Marcopper Mining Corporation "whether titled or untitled, and other related facilities including its port, for potential utilization of said area for its development into a free port and an export processing and tourism zone."

Governor Velasco also stated that "more than the aforesaid consideration, the Marcopper Mining sites, specifically its siltation dam, poses a major threat to the citizens, inhabitants, major river networks, and all other directly related stakeholders of the municipalities of Mogpog and Boac, thus the need to immediately act upon the said issue."

The 15th SP body, within the first couple of months of assumption into office, passed a strongly worded Resolution No. 23-2019, "strongly manifesting the frustration and disgust of the Province of Marinduque on the helplessness of the National Government to cause the implementation of the serious recommendation of the DENR-MRB to address the critical conditions of various structure and facilities of the abandoned Marcopper Mining site which are posing more serious threat to the life and security of the province's people and its environment".

Government of Marinduque. One Marinduque

This was immediately followed by another resolution addressed to the Regional Development Council MIMAROPA "to consider the creation of an Inter-Agency Task Force to assist the Province of Marinduque in its quest for urgent government response to the dangers posed by the abandoned critical structure and facilities of the Marcopper Mining Corporation." (Res.No. 24-2019).

Today, on the issue of expropriation of all the lots of the mining company, a committee hearing was held at the SP with resource persons from the Provincial Assessor's Office, (Engr. Rodrigo Opis), PG-ENRO (Engr. Rolly Josue), PENRO (Ms. Imee Diaz) and Governor's Office Atty. Mara Sore). and members of the SP.

stresses a point as BM Caballes and BM Angeles listen
As additional background, this blogger posted the following article on September 28, 2016, amid serious public concerns over the integrity of Marcopper's abandoned earth dams. No maintenance, repair and rehabilitation had been undertaken for more than two decades and with each passing day, these dams are at great risk for failure.

"One could only hope and pray that this central part of our island-province where copper, gold and silver were extracted, an area that has been turned into a danger zone of hellish pits and uncertainty, and a depiction of environmental degradation and man's greed, could finally be transformed into a symbol of a people's perseverance and strong resolve for social and environmental justice to be upheld."

Declare Marcopper as abandoned mine site

20 mining firms have been recommended for suspension following the completion of DENR's audit of mining operations in the country. 11 more will continue to be monitored according to the DENR. But nowhere in the news do we find anything about Marcopper Mining Corporation in Marinduque. 

Marcopper should now be declared an abandoned mine site. From being a source of mineral extraction it should now be turned into a tourist attraction.

20 years have passed since the infamous environmental disaster of 1996. Nothing was done to rehabilitate the mine site and the abandoned earthen siltation dams that are in danger of collapse, as scientists have warned. One such structure had, in fact, collapsed and destroyed lives and property in 1993. Then no river cleanup of the Boac ever transpired after a massive tailing spillage in 1996, considered the worst in the country's mining history.

It's a wonder that calls from the people of Marinduque for government action, and enumerable pleadings from local and national environmental groups have not been heeded. No one has risen to the occasion even as official assurances were given to seriously address such calls and pleadings.

In 2001 an agreement was made, according to which responsibilities were left with Marcopper, while Placer Dome, the Canadian co-owner fled the scene for good. The more that nothing  happened, so there goes claims of being socially responsible.

How it is even possible that in all those years, no mine environmental rehabilitation plan was ever implemented, is one for the books.


People have not forgotten. Photo taken at a mine spill commemoration rally. Photo: MACEC
We only know that the last 20 years merely saw the conduct of numerous congressional hearings, consultative meetings with concerned stakeholders, street protests and rallies, many cases filed before local and foreign courts, some of which were merely dismissed for various reasons. All of these have left our people's spirits drained.

Not even a High Court's favorable, final and executory decision on a tax case against the company was ever pursued for implementation by the local government concerned. And what about real property taxes now exceeding the amount of one billion pesos that have remained unpaid to most of Marinduque LGU's?

What do we do now with the Marcopper mine site?

We cannot continue to just wait for another generation and do nothing about this unfortunate legacy of environmental degradation caused by the irresponsible rich, the high and mighty. It should be humanly possible to find creative solutions to the clear threats the mine site poses to our lives and to our environment.

The peace-loving people of Marinduque have been overly patient. But now, the time has come for the infamous Marcopper in Marinduque, best described as being the 'poster child for irresponsible mining, past and present', to be resolutely declared by the Duterte administration as an 'abandoned mine site'.

This should, however, entail full responsibility by the government to take the necessary steps to rehabilitate critical areas and structures therein to prevent any looming new disasters from ever happening again. 

Special eco-tourism zone

Government should then take the more challenging steps needed for the development of Marcopper's mining tenements in Sta. Cruz covering 4,758.32 hectares into what has been an elusive dream for Marinduquenos - conversion of the mine site into a special eco-tourism zone.

This idea has been floated around for ages and remained just that. But it does provide an answer that, necessarily, would address the dam threats, and thereafter, entail the utilization of all existing mining infrastructure for reuse. That includes an airport strip and power facilities whose operations had ceased. A now abandoned golf course could also be redeveloped, as well as an existing hospital facility that could open up new possibilities.

Environmental rehab

Then, for once, the existing but untapped Makulapnit Water Reservoir could supply water for the tourism zone, the neighboring barangays and the Boac community. Boac has its own share of perennial water supply problems. For once, too, decision makers, setting aside selfish interests, should welcome the opportunity of being part of such a challenge.

Extraction to attraction

More visitors could be drawn to Marinduque because of its beaches, caves, mountains, forests, its rituals, festivals, and its natural and laid-back ambiance. It was only a few years ago when this island-province was named one of the world's top islands for these natural attractions. Huge opportunities may have been lost but it cannot be too late for them to be resurrected.

Lack of foresight, planning and management could, of course, compromise whatever good plans well-meaning people might have on this move. Therefore, this would-be special eco-tourism zone development of the area must be master-planned by professionals or site planners with great achievement record.

As already mentioned, in the case of this virtually orphaned mine site, there are existing infrastructures that only need to undergo the necessary rehabilitation for reuse - such as existing roads (that should make the adjacent barangay residents very happy), airport, seaport, power facilities, golf course, hospital, housing and other mining facilities that could be converted into sites for passive and active recreational activities. A source of mineral extraction turned into a tourist attraction.

Pray

One could only hope and pray that this central part of our island-province where copper, gold and silver were extracted, an area that has been turned into a danger zone of hellish pits and uncertainty, and a depiction of environmental degradation and man's greed, could finally be transformed into a symbol of a people's perseverance and strong resolve for justice to be upheld.

Other surprise numbers have been prepared by the MNHS-MSC group. The Marinduque Show starts at 4:00 pm after a brief performance at 2:00 pm for the opening program and the ribbon cutting. There will be a second Marinduque show for MIMAROPA Naturally visitors at 7:00 pm.

You are all invited to this much-awaited event. Consider this as the most opportune time to show support to our farmers, manufacturers, and support to tourism establishments now rising on the island-province.

About 150 MSME-exhibitors from the region are targeted to participate this year, and that’s more than 100% increase from the 73 MSME-exhibitors who joined in 2015. DTI MIMAROPA is optimistic to reach a milestone P100-million sales generated this year. That’s twenty-fold higher than the P4.5 million sales in 2015, according to DTI.

Some 100 new/improved products and designs this time will also be launched.
