History of Abra de Ilog, Mindoro Occidental, Philippines

source: https://sites.google.com/site/occidentalmindorohistory/historyabradeilog
I – DURING THE SPANISH REGIME

Sto. Tomas was the first village in this community which was mentioned in the history written by Dutch researcher Antoon Postma, about the Parish of Calavite. According to the aforementioned researcher, Sto. Tomas was one of the mission stations being visited by Spanish missionaries in 1679. That same year, the parish priest of Baco also mentioned in his report that in the barrio of Ylog, he baptized fifteen (15) children and seventy eight (78) adults.

Mr. Postma also mentioned in his historical pamphlet Mindoro Missions Revisited that in 1722, a community for the indigenous people belonging to the Iraya tribe was established by the Augustinian Recollect missionaries in Talasungan, one of the places under Abra de Ilog at present.

In 1739, a group of Moto pirates attacked Talasungan. They burned the houses, after divesting it of its valuable objects. They captured many inhabitants of the village and sold them as slaves. The following year, they again plundered the village.

In 1750, a Spanish missionary reported that Talasungan was a mission station where three hundred fifty (350) baptized Irayas and one thousand (1,000) catechumens being taught by Fr. Tomas de < xml="true" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" prefix="st1" namespace="">San Jose of the Catholic faith, resided.

It was mentioned in an old document of the Spaniards that in 1765, Fr. Jose de San Antonio, the missionary assigned in Dongon, a village which was located at the present site of Brgy. San Nicolas, Sablayan was transferred to Ilog, the old name of the municipality of Abra de Ilog.

Due to the continuous attack of Moro pirates, the mission station of Talasungan was totally destroyed in 1788. Fr. Juan dela Concepcion, a Recollect missionary wrote that “even the beautiful garden of flowers was mercilessly trampled and destroyed by the Moros.”

In 1803, the Spanish missionary again established Abra de Ilog. In this place, they gathered, taught and baptized the indigenous people who lived in the mountains. In 1807, a missionary described in his report that in Mission San Rafael de Ylog, there were twenty nine (29) houses and one hundred thirty nine (139) baptized Irayas.

A priest assigned in Calapan, who visited Abra de Ilog in 1827, stated in his report that Domingo Pangilinan was the gobernadorcillo of this village. It was stated in an old map drawn in 1829 that this place was a visita of Calapan, with sixty two taxpayers and has a baluarte or fort where a pedrero or a mason worked.

In 1832, when the people of Sablayan filed a complaint against the parish priest of Iriron due to his harsh treatment of his parishioners, the castillano or Spaniard who lived in Abra de Ilog helped them approach the concerned government officials in Calapan.

Before the Filipinos revolted against the Spaniards, the families of Zoleta from Marinduque and Leyco from Batangas arrived. Almost all public land in Abra de Ilog were bought by these two families.

In 1898, a group of revolutionaries from Abra de Ilog helped the group of Filipino freedom fighters who attacked Calapan, particularly the capitol where Mindoro Governor Rafael Morales held office. After one month, with the support of Col. Alfonso Panopio of Batangas, the revolutionaries of Mindoro forced Governor Morales to surrender. The formal surrender of the Spanish governor took place at the spacious plaza of Calapan, on July 1, 1898.

Barangay's power and authority

Gavel.jpg

This is the "Barangay Code of the Philippines".

The barangay has power and authority over its domain. The improvement of the barangay rests on the barangay officials. The barangay chairman, the barangay council and the local businessmen forge the prosperity of the barangay. Not the president of the Philippines, senate, nor congress, not the governor of the province, not the mayor nor council of the municipality or city. Poor barangays stay poor because of weak and/or ignorant(uninformed) barangay leaders.

When roads need to be built or any infrastructure within the barangay is needed, all the barangay officials have to do is make a resolution and demand for it from the city or municipality council. The resolution will force the city/municipal council or responsible government office to hear the legitimate demands. "The squeaky wheel gets the grease."

Practically anything that has to do with the barangay, the barangay officials have a say on it and most likely the authority over it. The majority of the barangay officials are not aware of their duties and power. They depend on the city council or mayor. The elected barangay officials are afraid of the mayor and city/municipality's "Sangguniang Panlungsod". They are in fear of being ousted or removed from office. The truth is, "Sangguniang Panlungsod" does not have the power to remove any elected barangay officials from office. Only the COURT OF LAW can do this (judicial branch of the government). Information is power. Be informed.

The control of traffic is not up to the city council or chief of police. It is controlled by the barangay. If the barangay needs traffic enforcers, the barangay can make a resolution to demand it from the city or municipality council. When the electric coop or the water district do not maintain their lines, the barangay can directly demand for the maintenance from the utility companies. No need to wait for city council.

The citizens also has the power to make demands to the barangay officials. In case the officials get blinded. Simply file an official complaint with the barangay secretary naming the Punong barangay as the respondent representing the barangay.

Cleaning the shorelines, drainage systems, streets, rivers, and parks within your barangay is YOUR responsibility. You are accountable for this. It is not the responsibility of the City/Municipality officials. The citizens and officials of the barangay are responsible.

  • BUDGET: As far as the preparation for the budget expenditures, it starts at the barangay level, then moves on to cities, municipalities, provinces and regions. The barangays need to exercise their authority. They need to put their yearly budget together for their administration and future projects. The majority of the barangays leave this job to the municipality and city. This is so wrong. Then when the budget doesn't come or is lacking, they complain.
  • The budget for the barangays does go to the City or Municipality, but simply for holding and later distribution. The city or municipality DOES NOT approve the budget. It was already approved by congress. The city or municipality simply "distributes" the approved budget.
  • The bureau of internal revenue is in cahoots to subdue the barangays, municipalities and provinces. They call the rightful shares to the taxes collected as "Internal Revenue Allotment Dependency". It is not a dependency. It is the lawful and rightful share of the LGU as specified in "TITLE III, SHARES OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT UNITS IN THE PROCEEDS OF NATIONAL TAXES, CHAPTER I, Allotment of Internal Revenue Taxes, Section 284."
  • Imperial Manila does not exist anymore. Budgetary planning has been "DECENTRALIZED since 1991.".
  • DURING ELECTIONS: Where do City and Municipality politicians go to campaign? They seek the support of the Barangay officials. They plead to the barangay folks for the votes. After the election they forget you. Do not ever forget the power of the barangay.

Ignorance keeps the pinoys thinking that Manila rules. Be informed, be educated and make your barangay prosper.

Natural Resources of Abra de Ilog, Mindoro Occidental, Philippines

Protect the environment

It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.

Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!


Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.

The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.

To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.

Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More


We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.

This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.


Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power and thermal energy conversion. We have too many black outs.
