Federalism in the Philippines is simply a ploy to give the Bangsamoro an Islamic State. Bangsamoro is POISON. Religion must never rule supreme over any region, province, city, municipality or barangay. All religions must be treated equally.
The Philippine government must STOP FINANCING Islam.

Federalism a ploy to create a Bangsamoro State 2.JPG

To have an Islamic State in a Non-Islamic federal form of government invites CHAOS and or possibly later secession from the country. India, USA, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina are some of the countries with the federal form of government. Issues with Islam exist but so far not one of them has a Muslim state. Because they know that it will only lead to chaos. Yet the Philippines tempts this Bangsamoro State idea. Learn from the mistake of Russia. They did this, and is now miserably paying the price. Religion and Government must be kept separate. Doesn't the Philippine legislature understand this? Or possibly the legislature of the Philippines was "bought and paid for" by the Muslim advocates and the Political Dynasty advocates?

Soldiers of the Philippines, you are at war with the Islamic Terrorists in Mindanao. These terrorists are MOROS or MUSLIMS.


The government of the Philippines is financing these Moros/Muslims, and here you are being shot at and killed by these Moros who are financed by the Philippine government.
Federalism in the Philippines is pushed and supported by four types of People.
✅ The first one is by the Muslims (Moros) because they want an Islamic state of their own. Federalism guarantees them an Islamic State.
✅ The second is by the greedy (Kanya-Kanya) mentality who are also the proponents of political dynasties.
✅ The third are the ignorant, the blind followers or the minions of the proponents of this type of federalism in the Philippines.
✅ The fourth are those who are paid to say yes. They are just chasing MONEY. They will do anything for MONEY.

Province of Agusan del Norte, Philippines

Location of Agusan del Norte, Philippines

Agusan del Norte is a third class province and the second smallest in the Caraga Region. It is mountainous along its northeastern and western parts. In between are flat, rolling lands particularly where the Agusan River cuts through as it empties into Butuan Bay. Its crystal –clear waters that sparkle with the bright reflection of the sun and verdant landscapes, enchanting caves, pear-shaped lake, multi-tiered waterfalls are great gateaways that await you.

Geography of Agusan del Norte, Philippines

Agusan del Norte is bounded on the north by Butuan Bay and Surigao del Norte, on the east by Surigao del Sur, on the south by Agusan del Sur and on the west by Misamis Oriental.

Butuan City is the regional center of the Caraga Region in the Philippines. It is located at the northeastern part of Agusan Valley Mindanao, sprawling across the Agusan River. It is bounded to the north, west and south by Agusan del Norte, to the east by Agusan del Sur and to the northwest by Butuan Bay.

Flat and rolling lands characterized much of Agusan del Norte. Surrounded by mountains at the northwestern and southeastern fronts, the sea embraces valleys at its mid portion that runs in triangular form from the west and comprises the plains fronting Butuan Bay on the east. Lording over this landmass in term of elevation is the 2,012 meters Mt. Hilong-hilong in Cabadbaran, part of Diwata Mountain Range as its northeastern boundary with the province of Agusan del Sur and Surigao del Sur that stand as watershed to Caraga Region’s major rivers. The other highlands in the province are Mt. Mabaho, 1823 meters in Buenavista and Mt. Piglalahan, 810 meters in Carmen. -- source:www.wecan-vc.org

History of Agusan del Norte, Philippines

article from the LGU of agusan del Norte

Agusan Province was named after a Malay word Agasan, meaning, “where water flows”, probably because of the mighty river that traverses the whole area. Early immigrants from Borneo and Celebes came to the region in Balanghai or wooden boats. Nine such boats were excavated. One dates back to 320 A.D. The Malay settlers drove the aborigines, called Mamanwas, to the hinterlands.

By the time the Spaniards arrived, the natives were already trading with foreign merchants, as attested by 10th-century Chinese ceramics unearthed near Butuan. Some historians claim that Magellan held the first mass in the Philippines at the mouth of the Agusan River, and not in Limasawa, Leyte, on Easter Sunday, of 1521. Agusan was part of Surigao province during the Spanish colonial administration. By virtue of R.A. 1306 during the American regime, it became the independent province of Agusan. On June 17, 1967, Congress passed R.A. 4979 dividing the lone province into Agusan del Norte and Agusan del Sur.

Butuan City, which was then a component city of Agusan del Norte, used to be the capital and seat of government. That ended in 2000 when congress passed Republic Act 8811 making Cabadbaran as the new capital and administrative center of the province that year.

Natural Resources of Agusan del Norte, Philippines

The province has significant deposits of metallic and non-metallic resources such as gold, manganese, copper, and construction and decorative materials. These mineral prospects can play a role in the economic development of the province if they are properly extracted. The mining industry can even significantly contribute to the foreign exchange earnings of the country.

Agusan del Norte’s mineral resources are located mainly in the municipalities of Nasipit, RTR, Kitcharao, Cabadbaran, Jabonga, Tubay and Santiago. It is reported that an area of 10.5 hectares in Nasipit have bauxite ore; 112.9 hectares in RTR have manganese; and 178.9 hectares in Kitcharao have marbleized limestone. The DENR also estimated gold deposits of about 1,566.14 MT in Tubay and 75,000 MT in Cabadbaran. Copper deposits are also said to exist in Cabadbaran, Jabonga, Santiago and Tubay while San Antonio in R.T.R. and Cabadbaran are likewise manganese areas. The province’s mineral resources are still largely untapped.

Non-metallic resources such as limestone, marble, guano, sand, gravel and construction materials are also abundant. The Marapot and Cabadbaran Rivers are the best-known sources of Class A sand and gravel.

There are possibilities for hydrocarbon or natural gas deposits in the coastal plains of Magallanes. Low-pressure natural gas seepages have been found in Magallanes Poblacion, while low-pressure natural gas utilization has been established at Barangay Caloc-an. Methaniferous gas emanations occur up to the mouth of Agusan River due perhaps to the faults that release the gas from underground deposits.

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.

OWWA-Caraga intensifies education program of OFW dependents

BUTUAN CITY- The Overseas Workers’ Welfare Administration (OWWA) in Caraga is strengthening the education program of the children of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) in the region.

In a press conference on Tuesday held in time with the 30th anniversary of OWWA, Dr. Marietta Lumawag, OWWA-Caraga Regional Director emphasized the need to strengthen the education of the children of OFWs.

The official said because of this, a memorandum of agreement was signed between OWWA-Caraga and eight local government units (LGUs) of the region, as well as some 12 academic institutions to ensure that whatever assistance needed by the students will be properly addressed.

Lumawag stressed the establishment of OWWA help desk in the said LGUs academic institutions highlighted in the agreement.

“It is really our desire to help the children of the OFWs who are studying in the academic institutions in the region as they were left behind by their parents who are working abroad,” Lumawag said.

Meanwhile, OWWA Administrator Carmelita Dimzon graced and personally witnessed the agreement signing of the three parties.

In her speech, Dimzon said the initiative of OWWA-Caraga is the first to be implemented in all the regional welfare offices in the country.

“I am so overwhelmed of what OWWA-Caraga has accomplished… This is also the reason why I personally visited and celebrate the 30th anniversary of OWWA… I also want to witness how the program was implemented in the region… hopefully this will be replicated in other regions,” she said.

The OWWA chief also expressed gratitude for the support of the LGUs and the academic institutions for the success of the program. She said there is a need for the government to partner with public and private stakeholders for the development of the students who are children of OFWs.

“We in the government cannot do the development alone… we need the support of stakeholders especially in the LGUs and academe to put our plans and programs in place,” Administrator Dimzon said.

Accordingly, school administrators and guidance counselors have already expressed appreciation and welcomed this step as a timely response to address the special needs of the OFW’s children.

Present during the MOA-signing are Governor Johnny Pimentel of the Province of Surigao del Sur; Butuan City Mayor Ferdinand Amante, Jr.; Nasipit, Agusan del Norte Mayor Rosco Democrito Plaza; and Agusan del Sur municipal mayors Jenny de Asis of San Francisco; Prosperidad Mayor Albin Magdamit; Esperanza Mayor Leonida Manpatilan; Lapaz Mayor Ambrosio Lim; and Loreto Mayor Romeo Magadan.

Also present in the event are school administrators of Father Saturnino Urios University, Caraga State University, Saint Joseph Institute of Technology, Agusan National High School, Southern Technical Institute of the Philippines, De La Salle-John Bosco College, Andres Soriano College, Saint Michael College of Caraga, Saint James National High School, Carmen Academy, Saint Paul University-Surigao City Campus, and Philippine Normal University-Agusan del Sur Campus.
