Reacting to petitions for habeas corpus filed by the families of the missing activists, Lieutenant General Romeo Tolentino said reports that Army troop are behind the alleged abductions may be a "creation" to cover up the fact that the activists went underground.baket? kasi...
Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (Bayan) secretary general Renato Reyes Jr. blasted Tolentino's statement as a "lame excuse." "There were witnesses who saw the forcible abduction of the UP students. How can he [Tolentino] claim that they went underground with the NPA?" Reyes said in a text message.di ba? read more inanity here.

anyway, in happy concon news, just got to watch TRABAHO last night directed by our very own papa ned trespeces, my film barkada. produced by his longtime partner in crime onnah with help from fellow conconistas like yam, jke and xe. saya naman to reconnect with these peeps again at the showing. na-miss ko ito ng husto a. grabe sobra.
nakakatawa pala yung film. nabasa ko kasi yung orig material nito na stage play na na-stage din ng peta before. it's nice material actually, and so apt for an indie prod flick. way to go, dirtykitchen prod!
kung may low profile great guitarist friend kami diyan sa paligid, siguro si ned ay isang low profile great writer friend naman. tahimik lang pero dami na ring na-achieve. nung nasa naranghita halfway house pa kami ng ilang fellow conconistas (like cres and hech) during the late '90s , madalas dumalaw yang silang dalawa doon for parties and other things. rakets din. naaalala ko when i acted (yes, acted, can you believe it) for him during one of his AVPs yata for PGH or something like that. haha nakakatawang alalahanin mga panahong iyon. we've really come a long way, conconistas. ibang klase.
