Families remember missing loved ones

By |, Kate Pedroso,


NO TOMBS TO VISIT Every year on All Souls’ Day, the families of 595 “desaparecidos” gather at Bantayog ng mga Desaparecido on the grounds of Redemptorist Church in Baclaran, Parañaque City. The shrine has been a mute witness to the pain and anguish of mothers, wives, children and relatives of these brave souls who remain missing to this day. PHOTO BY RICHARD A. REYES

Erlinda Malicdem still remembers the last words her husband, Jimmy, uttered in Filipino before the urban poor leader disappeared on Oct. 8, 1987: “When the time comes, you’ll understand what I’m doing.”

“He was always there when they needed him,” she told the Philippine Daily Inquirer in a phone interview. She was 29 when she last saw her husband, then 34, in Sucat, Parañaque City.

Now 54, Erlinda has been visiting Bantayog ng mga Desaparecido at Redemptorist Church in Baclaran, Parañaque, since the memorial was erected in 1994. Tomorrow (Thursday), she will be visiting with her three children and five grandchildren, and over 60 other families.

“The families come here every year because they have no tomb to visit on All Souls’ Day,” said Wilma Tizon, deputy secretary general of the Families of Victims of Involuntary Disappearance Inc. (FIND), an organization of families, friends and colleagues of the disappeared, as well as surfaced “desaparecidos” (disappeared).

FIND has documented 1,838 cases of disappearances since 1971. Nearly half of the cases (878) happened during the martial law regime of President Ferdinand Marcos.

“Every All Souls’ Day, we make it a point to visit the memorial to remember our loved ones,” Erlinda said.

She remembers Jimmy as a man for others. “Before he disappeared, every time somebody called on him for help, that person becomes his priority.”

“He’s been gone for a long time, but the pain is still there,” she said.

Common ground

For families and friends of the disappeared, the Bantayog stands as common ground for remembrance. The memorial lists the names of Jimmy Malicdem and hundreds of other missing people etched in granite panels.

Unveiled in September 2004 in time for the 23rd anniversary of martial law, the memorial is the refurbished “Flame of Courage Monument,” which was originally unveiled by FIND on July 13, 1994, the ninth anniversary of the disappearance of Redemptorist priest Rudy Romano.

Romano, a well-known human rights activist, was abducted in Cebu in 1985, allegedly by military agents. To this day, he has not been found.

Designed and created by sculptor Lito Mondejar, the Flame of Courage features a mother carrying a torch, which symbolizes the courage of those left behind and continuing the struggle for justice.

A child holding the picture of his father represents hope that one day, the families will be reunited with their missing loved ones, according to FIND.

Tomorrow’s (Thursday) program will carry the theme “Paggunita at Pagdiriwang sa Buhay at Pakikibaka ng mga Desaparecidos” (Remembering and celebrating the lives and struggles of the Desaparecidos).

Thanksgiving, too

A thanksgiving ceremony will also be held for the passage of the Anti-Enforced Disappearance Bill earlier this month. “We will also again call for President Benigno Aquino III to sign the bill immediately,” Tizon said.

“Now that Congress has approved the bill and it is now in President Aquino’s hands, we hope he will sign it soon,” Erlinda said.

“We don’t want more disappearances. We don’t want more families experiencing the pain that these enforced disappearances cause,” she added.

The first in Asia to criminalize enforced disappearances, the bill was approved by the Senate and the House of Representatives on Oct. 16, It is now pending approval by the President.

The bill defines enforced or involuntary disappearance as “the arrest, detention, abduction or any other form of deprivation of liberty committed by agents of the state or by persons or groups of persons acting with authorization or support from the state, followed by a refusal to acknowledge the deprivation of liberty or by concealment of the fate or whereabouts of the disappeared.”

The maximum penalty for offenders is life imprisonment, or equivalent to 20 years and one day to 40 years in prison. Victims of enforced disappearance and their kin will also be entitled to compensation, restitution and rehabilitation.

The crime has no prescription period, unless the victim has surfaced. This means that the perpetrators can still be prosecuted regardless of how long the time of disappearance has passed.

“Every year, the families pray for justice to be served, and for their loved ones to be eventually found,” Tizon said.

Simultaneous rites will be held in FIND chapters in provinces in Central Luzon and Bicol, Cebu, Leyte, Negros, Panay, Northern Mindanao, Southern Mindanao and Western Mindanao.

        Ang sinasabi niya ay autoridad, Kabayan. Ang ibig sabihin ay ang mga nanunungkulan sa gobyernong Pilipinas. Nanunungkulan ba si Joma at ang minion niya sa gobyerno? Itong sinasabi mong Joma at ang minion niya ay harapang kalaban ng mga Pilipino. Ang layunin nina Joma ay manakot, pumatay ng walang batas-batas, magnakaw, manggulo, magsamantala sa mga mahihina, Walang layunin silang ipagtanggol ang sinumang Pilipino. Ang mga autoridad (nanunungkulan sa gobyernong Pilipinas) ay sumumpa sa saligang batas ng Pilipinas na paiiralin ang makataong pamamaraan at igagalang ang sinasaad ng Saligang Batas. Kung ayaw nilang igalang ang Saligang Batas, sumama na rin sila sa mga mababangis at malulupit na NPA.

    Senator Juan Ponce Enrile might have some knowledge he may want to impart before leavingn this world to provide some  closure for many of these families. As aright hand man of  the dictator, he must have been a  privy not merely a post  “filler”, much less a victim as he claims to be in his book.

Pawang kasinungalingan ang alam nila. Pangatlo ay inutil ang ating Military sa paghuli ng mga nagtatago. Pangapat, maraming alam si Mr. Enrile sa mga nangyayari sa gobyerno lalo na nuong Martial Law. Sabagay ay baka ayaw ding magsabi ng katotohanan si Mr. Enrile. Wala yatang Pilipino na marunong magsabi ng katotohanan, Kabayan! Iyan yata ang una nating natutunan sa mundo!

        Paano ako naging sinungaling, kabayan. Ang gobyernong Pilipinas ay makatao at may sinusunod na batas. Kung kaya nga mayruon tayong hukuman upang litisin ang napapagbintangang naglilingkod sa Gobyerno. Ang NPA ay maaring patayin sa labanan at ang mahuli ng buhay ay ibinibilanggo ng walang tanong-tanong. Hindi maaring tumulad ang gobyerno ng Pilipinas sa hindi makataong pamamaraan ng kanilang kalaban na tulad ng NPA. Hindi ba sinabi ko na sa iyong dapat ay lipulin (eradicate) sila at ang sumuko ay hindi dapat patayin. Dapat ay hulihin at ibilanggo. Gaya ng sinabi ko, wala ng Sali-salita. Hindi iyan papansinin ng mga NPA.

Alam ng lahat na ang mga NPA ay mararahas, mapanggulo, tulisan, walang batas, mapagsamantala at gagawa ng hindi makataong bagay. Ang tungkulin ng Philippine Military ay lipulin ang grupong ito at ang mahuli ng buhay ay bigyan ng pagkakataong ipagtanggol ang sarili sa hukuman ng Pilipinas. Ganyan ang demokrasya. Walang ganitong sistema ang mga NPA. Wala silang sinusunod na batas.

        Sigurado akong wala silang sinusunod na batas. Kung anong gusto nilang gawin, gagawin nila kahit hindi makatao. Ang gobyernong Pilipinas ay may sinusunod na Saligang Batas. Ang ayaw sumunod sa Saligang Batas ng Pilipinas, sumama na rin sa mga NPA na ang panuntunan ay manlinlang, pumatay ng walang dahilan, magnakaw, manakot ng mahihina, manggulo ng katahimikan at sambahin ang sarili nila. Nilalahat mo ang AFP. Marami sa AFP ay mararangal na sundalo subalit may ilan na nalilimutan ang pagsunod sa sinasabi ng Saligang Batas ng Pilipinas. Kung hindi sila makasunod sa Saligang Batas, umalis na sila sa pagiging tagapagtanggol ng mamamayan at magtayo sila ng kanilang pangkat na walang sinusunod na batas.

    To punish those Filipino government officials responsible for the disappearance of those whose names are listed on this article should be relentlessly and vigorously pursued by every Philippine administration no matter how long it takes. To stop seeking justice for these desaparecidos would be insane and treacherous to our moral values. I salute Congressman Edcel Lagman and all the lawmakers who are behind the passage of HB#0098.

        The Filipino Communist Party (NPA) is the enemy of the Philippine government and the Filipino people. These people are evil and they are not expected to do otherwise. They do not respect the rights of anybody, young, old, handicapped, innocent or children. The Philippine Military are expected to protect the Filipinos. They are not supposed to kill innocent young and old Filipinos without giving them a chance to defend themselves in any Philippine Court. Do you understand the difference? The media do not have to announce the NPA’s violent and savage nature because everyone, you and me, already know this. Do you understand that? What the media have to announce is the violent nature of some of the Philippine Military men who do not uphold the law to protect the Filipinos and their right to be heard in court. The Military men are supposed to be all professionals who adhere to the laws of the land while the NPA have no sense of right and wrong and do not follow and respect the Philippine laws. Do you understand that? I hope you see the great difference between the NPA and the Philippine Military. Furthermore, these Military men accused of any wrongdoings are given a chance to appear in the Philippine court to defend himself. That’s the good thing about democracy!

        IKAW DAPAT ANG GUMAMIT NG BRAIN

        IN THE FIRST PLACE THERE IS “NO COMPARISSON”

        I REPEAT NO COMPARISSON BETWEEN THE AFP & NPA

        THE NPA ARE TERRORIST

        NOW, YOU ARE SAYING IT IS ALRIGHT TO KILL &
            ABDUCT IF YOU ARE A COMMUNISTS?

        EXCUSE ME?

        THE AFP IS VERY PROFESSIONAL

        ALAM MO, MGA GALIT LANG SA AFP ARE THE COMMUNISTS/NPA

        YUN LANG YUN

        KUNG WALA KAYONG GINAGAWA LABAG SA BATAS
           
        BAKIT KAYO MATATAKOT?

        MY POINT IS

        THE CHR SHOULD CONDEMNED NPA/COMMUNISTS IN
             THE STRONGEST WORD & THEY SHOULD BE
              DECLARED AS TERORRIST.

        DO YOU UNDERSTAND?

        DEMOCRACY BA YAN, IF YOU TURN YOUR EYES BLIND
             TO THE GENOCIDE DONE BY THE NPA/COMMUNISTS?

        YOU ARE A VERY PITIFUL PERSON

        PITIFUL

        Bakit pa nga ipagsisigawan, kabayan. Alam ng lahat na ang mga NPA ay mga tulisan at walang sinusunod na batas. Ang hindi nakakaalam nito ay bulag at bingi. Kailangang lusubin ng AFP ang kuta ng mga NPA, lipulin at ang hindi pa patay ay ibilanggo at papanagutin sa kanilang kasalanang paglaban sa gobyerno ng Pilipinas. Ano mang salita ay walang kabuluhan. Ang kailangan ay aksyon ng Military ng Pilipinas. Hindi makukuha sa “strongest words” ang mga NPA na mababangis, mararahas at walang iginagalang na batas. Kailangan pa bang ipagsigawan na sila ay terorista? Mawawala ba sila kapag ipagsigawan silang terorista? Ang kailangan ay aksyon, kabayan. Ilang taon na bang sagabal sa kapayapaan at pag-unlad ng bayan ang mga NPA?

        txtman, basahin mo ang sinasabi ni 12JEM.

      Gerry Faustino, a student, not a communist but a plain objector to martial law, disappeared in Sept 1977.

      Gerry Faustino, son of the late Atty Bienvenido Faustino.

      Bienvenido P. Faustino….a distinguished classmate of Juan Ponce Enrile, in the UP College of Law in the early 50’s.

        Dapat ay malaman ito ni txtman, kabayan!

    Hindi si Pangulong Marcos ang nagmalabis sa panahon ng martial law kundi ang mga awtoridad sa panahon ng kanyang panunungkulan.. Noong panahon naman ng 1986 edsa rebolution hindi nya pinahintulutan na bombahin ng hukbong sandatahan ang edsa na kumpol ng mga tao o hindi siya gumamit ng dahas o may nasawing buhay sa edsa 1.. Bilang mabuting tao minarapat niyang bumaba sa puwesto dahil na rin sa kagustuhan ng humigit kumulang 2 milyon katao sa edsa kasama na ng mga balimbing.. Sa edsa nailathala ng media ang kagustuhan ng mga tao na bumaba sa pwesto si Marcos.. At ang malaking  nalalabi sa populasyon ng ating bansa ay neutral o hindi na alam ng media.. Maaring ang mga nagmalabis sa panahon ng martial law ay nagka-interes sa posisyon sa gobyerno pagkatapos ni Marcos.. Ano na ang kalagayan ng gobyerno natin ngayon??? Neutral lang po tayo at kailangan tanggapin ang katotohanan… Totoong mas marami pa rin nagawa si President Marcos…

      Si Mr. Marcos ang pinuno nuong Martial law at pananagutan niya ang mga ginagawa ng kanyang mga tauhan, sa alam niya at sa hindi. Gayon man ay binibigyan ko siya ng kredito sa hindi niya paglaban sa mga grupo ni Mr. Ramos at ni Mr. Enrile. Minabuti niyang iwasan ang madugong patayan ng mga Pilipino. Tama ka dito, Kabayan!
