A Writing Project for Musa Dimasidsing

In honor and respect for Musa Dimasidsing a school supervisor in Maguindanao who was killed in cold blood the 9th of June 2007 Tingog.com (Voice of the Filipino) a Philippine socio-political blog has initiated a writing project. It is now on its 2nd day and will end Sunday Noon (Manila time) on the 17th of June 2007 encouraging bloggers of different interest and passion to write an entry in their respective blogs to express their disgust and appeal to put a stop to these senseless election related violence. Submit your blog entry url to Tingog through the comment section or email nick@tingog.com for inclusion to the list of bloggers.

This author was not aware of the project and Nick of Tingog has left me a message in my article on the late Musa Dimasidsing to include my entry titled Maguindanao Poll Fraud Witness Shot Dead written on the 10th of June.2007. This is one way of showing our indignation on election related violence and fraudulent conduct that may have been the reason for the murder of Dimasidsing.

The culture of impunity has to stop, have we not have enough of these killings? We have yet to recover from the shock of hearing the sad plight of the two teachers Nellie Banaag and Leticia Ramos treacherously burned alive in Taysan, Batangas and then another one falls in the altar of sacrifice. For what exactly may I ask? So morons that consider themselves leaders of the people can rob their constituents’ blind? So the likes of Bedol can make a mockery of the electoral process just like his friend Garcillano?

Artemio De La Cruz in his comment had summed it up in this manner;

Benjamin Abalos is in the state of denial since the Hello Garci political scandal. He is using the same defensive line:

Where are the witnesses? Where the complainants? Where are the evidences? It appears that elections commissionaires are pretending to be deaf and blind. They are tolerating election fraud. “What witness? What whistleblower?” This is the reaction of Chairman Abalos regarding the death of Maguindanao whistleblower Musa Dimasidsing. He doesn’t care how many casualties-dead or wounded who are protecting the sanctity of votes. The Comelec goal is TU’s victory by hook and by crook.

A quote from Dr. Ed Del Rosario better known in the Internet as Ka Edong:

MAY A HUNDRED BILLION POISONOUS AND ANTIBIOTIC-RESISTANT STRAIN OF ESCHERICHIA COLI FEAST ON ALL THE VITAL ORGANS OF THOSE WHO KILLED THIS POOR TEACHER. A LOT OF CRIMINAL FOLKS IN THIS ADMINISTRATION ARE SURELY LIABLE. I GRIEVE FOR THE PHILIPPINES' DYING DEMOCRACY!

Fidel Umaga of Movement for Free Philippines had this to say:

As long as we do not find our own death from every man, woman or child that dies from violence and unknown assailants, many more, specially those who have less and the weak, among us would still become victims of undeterred violence and death in our benighted land.

It is a society of immoral people that simply moves on just to meet a quarterly national economic target while leaving at the backhouse the unresolved deaths and mysterious abductions of so many of them.


As suggested and also in one of Fidel Umaga’s response to the other blog entry it is time we hold our elected official accountable in seeing to it that justice is served. Let this signal a start of people’s collective indignation, you don’t have to be a blogger to participate in this project. This is also open to anyone that has no blog to just post a comment on the blogs that has participated in this project where it will be compiled so it can be presented to the people and the authorities concerned. Let them know we do not appreciate what is happening and we will not let it pass until justice has been served to all 130 plus victims of this dastardly senseless barbaric acts. If you feel the need to address people in authority we can start with the comelec at the address below;

The Commission on Elections
Postigo St.
, Intramuros
Manila
1002

Email of Benjamin Abalos: chairman@comelec.gov.ph
