Massive rally today vs.
RH bill – bishopes

Thousands of Negrenses opposed to the Reproductive Health Bill are taking their protest to the streets of Bacolod City in a Church-led rally this afternoon, and to members of Congress via Facebook and text brigades.

Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra yesterday called on the public to join and pray for a huge rally today to fight for the protection of life, especially of the unborn at conception, by opposing the Reproductive Health Bill, also known as the Responsible Parenthood Bill.

The rally is spearheaded by the Citizens Alliance for the Protection of Human Life and will be participated in not only by Catholics but also by Protestants, Muslims and members of the Iglesia Filipina Independiente to stress the importance of the need to protect life, Navarra, honorary chairman of CAPH-Life, said.moremoremore

Gov’t urged to go
after  ‘mule’ brains


Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra yesterday called on the government to go after the brains behind drug syndicates that have endangered Filipinos’ lives abroad by luring them into becoming “drug mules”, and endangering their lives.

The bishop issued the call as Chinese officials postponed the execution of three Filipinos facing the death sentence in China, and as Bacoleña Flory May Talaban serves out a life sentence in Bangkok Thailand. All four have been convicted for drug possession.

“I think they have been taken advantage of, government should really go after the brains behind these drug syndicates who exploit them,” the bishop said.moremoremore

Illegal structures demolished

The Bacolod City Legal Office Enforcement Team dismantled the illegal structures of 29 families at the Southbound Terminal of Vallacar Transit (Sambok area) along Luzuriaga-Lopez Jaena streets in Bacolod City yesterday.

City Legal Enforcement Team head Cesar Beloria Jr. said the affected families, who have stayed in the area for several years, voluntarily removed their illegal structures yesterday after he explained why the city is clearing the area.

The demolition was conducted without resistance, although, earlier, there were about five persons who reacted out of the 29, due to the prodding of their lawyer, he said.moremoremore
