Simple joys.
It was in a study tour in an Ayta community that I was able to capture this photo of a kid who was playing under the sun. He could have been in a school, or could have been playing with ‘real toys’, but this kid appears to be satisfied with his modest toy in his ‘own’ playground.

Lolo Boning.
Now in his twilight years, 77 year-old Bonifacio Penarubia relives his days as a government employee. Lolo Boning is not sure whether he was named after the Great Plebian Andres Bonifacio, but he knows that he had tried to epitomize Bonifacio’s ideals in his work.

Tata Pido.
Peasant leader Pedro “Tata Pido” Gonzales has always been a familiar face in protest actions. A respected mass leader in the Southern Tagalog region, Tata Pido survived the 1987 Mendiola massacre and a 2004 attempted murder where he was shot 9 times by suspected members of the military.
Despite his age and a damaged limb, Tata Pido continues to fight for genuine agrarian reform and justice for the victims of state atrocities. In this photo, he is seen carrying a placard of Eddie Gumanoy, also a peasant leader, who was killed along with KARAPATAN-ST Secretary General Eden Marcellana in Mindoro in 2003.

Spectators.

Probably out of amusement, these kids popped out their heads as militant groups chant and wave their flags on their way to Mendiola. The groups commemorated the International Human Rights Day on December 10, as they denounced the government’s tolerance of human rights abuses and the prevailing impunity in the country.
