Election in the Philippines is always marred by violence, deceit among other things. Each politician has his own platform to institute change but corruption for one, is systemic to the Philippine government that total change shall remain a remote possibility.
And with the upcoming election in May 2010, the Philippine history is again disgraced by the passion of people for power regardless of the means.
According to the news, 46 persons, mostly women and mediamen were slaughtered by allegedly people of the reigning political in Maguindanao. We only wish that justice is duly served and that all other election-related incidents in the future will cease to exist.
So, I am posting this black ribbon to sympathize with the bereaved family and that those who are accomplices and main culprits will be brought to justice.
