Bago City, Negros Occidental, Philippines
President Duterte and his followers promote the biggest DECEPTION and con in the Philippines. They push for Federalism and constitutional reform or charter change (cha-cha) just to boost political dynasties and to give the Muslims(Moros) their own state, a "BangasaMoro" (Muslim Nation), an Islamic State within the Philippines.

History of Bago City, Negros Occidental, Philippines
- article below from the City of Bago: www.bagocity.gov.ph
Bago's history has its beginning on September 6, 1571 when the Spanish adelantado, Miguel Lopez de Legaspi, allotted the community to a Spaniard named Juan Gutierrez as his “encomienda”. At that time the community was still composed of small cluster of settlements along the banks of a big river which later became known as the Bago River. The “economiendero”, since then, administered to the spiritual and socio-economic needs of the natives in the settlements until June, 1578; however, a year before that this community was placed under the evangelical visitations of Father Geronimo Marin, an Agustinian priest who had taken charge of the Christianization of the natives of Binalbagan since the year 1572.
Father Marin, upon his arrival in the community, celebrated the feast of St. John the Baptist, who would later be accepted as the patron saint of the place. Following the traditions and practices of the Spanish missionaries and historians in recording the founding of a “pueblo” or town that usually coincides with the feast day of a saint and since the feast day of St. John the Baptist, falls on June 24 of each year, it follows therefore that Bago was founded so that the exact month and day can only be deduced from such traditional practices of the Spaniards. Manila, Cebu City and Binalbagan also predicated the dates of their founding on the same historical situations, hence the logical conclusion is that Bago City was officially founded on the month, day and year heretofore mentioned.
As with regards to how the community acquired its name, according to the manuscript of a Spanish historian, Diego Lope de Povedano, which is available in the library of the University of San Carlos, Cebu City, the community was named after a large tree called “Bago” under which, according to local legend, a native prince by the name of Mapagic died.
Another historical version is that the place got its name from a shrub called “bago-bago” which was then growing luxuriantly along the river's banks. From the year 1575 up to the close of the 16th century, no historical account was written about the community. Bago came into the historical scene again when, at the early part of the 17th century, a group of settlers from Panay crossed the Guimaras Strait and migrated to Negros, some of whom settled along the banks of the Bago River. The arrival of these settlers spurred the rapid growth of the settlements in the area until all these were merged into a sizable village capable of self-governance. In later years, the descendants of these settlers petitioned the Spanish authorities to declare their village a “pueblo” or town and to name it “Bago”. Among the petitioners were Manuel Sitchon, Gregorio Varela, Paulino Torres, Jacinto Araneta, Clemente Celis, Mariano Gonzaga and Fernando Villanueva, whose forebears hailed from the town of Molo, Iloilo. The said petition was finally granted by the status of a “pueblo” or town in that same year.
Between the years 1800 and 1898, the inhabitants of Bago were among those who suffered tremendously under the Spanish tyranny, injustice and oppression. This social condition finally led to a revolt on November 5, 1898 when on this day, general Juan Araneta rallied his people in the struggle for freedom. This historic event was chronicled in a historic marker found in the City public plaza of Bago which bears the following inscriptions:
REPÚBLICA DE NEGROS
“In this plaza of Bago was proclaimed the
República de Negros by the Revolutionary
Forces led by general Juan Anacleto Araneta,
5 November, 1898. Witnessed by Anaias
Diokno, representative of the Central Revolutionary
Government. This Republic acknowledges
The authority of the First Philippine
Together with General Aniceto Lacson who led the forces in Talisay, he was able to force the capitulation of the Spanish garrison at Bacolod thus putting an end to the Spanish sovereignty in the province. Forthwith, a revolutionary government was established with general Juan A. Araneta as the Acting Governor. In the then Municipality of Bago, an election was held and Ramon del Castillo became the first elected municipal president who served in such capacity from the year 1898 up to the year 1900.
In April, 1901, the Americans came and established a civil government in the province of Negros Occidental which completely abolished the revolutionary government of General Araneta. Bago was one of the towns that were placed under the control of the Americans; however, they allowed the municipality to be governed by Filipino officials. The following therefore were the succeeding municipal presidents and mayors of Bago until the outbreak of the Second World War on December 7, 1941.
When the Japanese Forces invaded the Philippines, the civil government of Bago was dissolved. The Japanese occupation forces tried to establish a provisional government but the local people refused to cooperate. When the American forces liberated the town on March 29, 1945 together with the Philippine Commonwealth troops and local Negrosanon guerrilla units continued in Bago, it was completely destroyed but rehabilitation work was immediately started and the town underwent development efforts under the leadership of the succeeding town mayors. Bago City was finally granted its cityhood on February 19, 1966 by virtue of Republic Act No. 4382 written by Senator Ramon Torres a Bago native with his nephew Hon. Manuel Y. Torres as the hold-over City Mayor until 1998.
Legal limitations on the number of successive terms disqualified Mayor Manuel Y. Torres in running again and in the 1998 local elections, his wife Mayor Janet E. Torres ran as candidate for Mayor and won. The current Mayor is Ramon Torres a nephew of Manuel Y. Torres.

This is the.
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 .
- 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.
- Absolutely NO need for FEDERALISM. It is a ploy to give the Bangsamoro an Islamic State where the religion of . Bangsamoro will be a HOMELAND not for all Filipinos but for only the Muslim Filipinos. It violates the constitution's "separation of church and state". Religion is always good for the people but it should never be embraced or financed by government. Tax exemption is not tantamount to financing. Every non-profit organization is tax-exempt.

Natural Resources of Bago City, Negros 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.

Festivals, Fiestas and Traditions of Bago City, Negros Occidental, Philippines
In the Philippines a fiesta is usually celebrated in barrios or barangays. It is the official holiday of the LGU, the barangay. Filipinos love fiestas. It is a time for joy and celebration. A fiesta is of Spanish origin and is usually commemorated in association with a christian patron saint.

The cities or municipalities usually have yearly festivals where all the barangays participate. The cities or municipalities hold contests for the best floats in parades.
Babaylan Festival - of all figures in the history of Negros Island, the Babaylan is the most colorful and enduring. The Babaylan is a doctor, herbalist, artist, medium, adviser, agriculturist and more, all rolled in one very interesting character. He is the keeper of rituals and spirit agents in normal world. He inspires awe and fear. The Babaylan Festival was conceived to highlight a unique brand of Filipino heritage, one that dates back to the pre-Spanish period. The festival aims to rediscover the region’s indigenous music, literature, dances, rituals and other artistic endeavors.

In commemoration of that historic bluff that freed Negros from Spanish Conquestadores in 1898, the City Government of Bago celebrates that event with gleeful reminiscence and pride for the great General and his gallant men from this city who were armed with courage and ingenuity who played a great role in the history of Negros. Spanish authorities in Bacolod capitulated after seeing advancing troops armed with rifles and cannons which were actually nipa stalks and rolled sawali mats painted black. Al Cinco de Noviembre showcases not only the courage and gallantry but also the creativity and ingenuity of the Bagonhon. November 5 has been declared a holiday in Negros Occidental.
