Gualberto Dajao, ACT regional president, said yesterday that teachers will wear black arm bands at the start of class, as a sign of mourning over their fate under the administration of President Benigno Aquino III.moremoremore

What he and several pastors in Murcia are calling for is to put a stop to the proliferation of illegal drugs and gambling in the town, Patiño said.

They did not pinpoint any individuals in their campaign, he is surprised that the mayor has reacted the way he has, he said.moremoremore
