[OPINION] Honoring the predecessors of the #HijaAko movement

Holding a red plastic bag of nganga, Isabelita Vinuya (Lola Lita) had a glazed, faraway look in her eyes as she was narrating to me the fateful day when the Japanese Army raided her village. Lola Lita was just 11 years old when she was forcibly taken to the Bahay Na Pula to be brutally raped and subjected to various forms of sexual humiliation and violence. Nearly 7 decades later, she filed a case against the Philippine government to order the President to espouse their claims against the Japanese government. But when I asked her if she recalls why she lost that highly controversial case, she barely remembered that there was even a case to begin with. Since they lost that case in 2010, Filipino comfort women barely made the headlines of popular news agencies in the country. Since then, many members of the Malaya Lolas Organization and Lila Pilipina have died. Their identities, and consequently their lived experiences, were left in the margins of history.

Top PBA stars from each UAAP school

It is tough to choose between two great King Archers: Lim Eng Beng and Jun Limpot. Limpot was a former Rookie of the Year and a two-time member of the Second Mythical Team. Lim, meanwhile, made the Mythical First Team once and won more titles than Limpot, who won only one championship. Lim won two crowns for U-Tex, a remarkable feat in an era dominated by Crispa and Toyota. On that merit, we will have to go with Lim, with Limpot as a close second.

FALSE: Photo shows cleaned up Pasig River during Duterte’s term

This claim was also fact-checked by Agence France-Presse, which cited another ADB report as the source of the two photos. The report, which was also posted on May 23, 2011, said, “A massive cleanup in Estero de Paco, an estuary of Manila’s Pasig River, was conducted. Concrete embankments have been built and running water and septic tanks installed.”
