3 BIG ISSUES THAT PROVES THE POWER OF OFWS and SOCIAL MEDIA

This 2015, there are 3 issues that proves the power of Internet, the power of OFWs and the social media tool like Twitter and Facebook in voicing out with regards to issues that directly affects the OFWs.
1. Jane Veloso
HASHTAG #SAVEMARYJANE
'The #SaveMaryJane campaign proves that even in the darkest of hours, it is worth holding on to the tiniest inch of hope because a fight to save a person's life is always a battle worth fighting for'
"More than 200,000 signatures from 127 countries are now etched on a petition that helped spare the life of a Filipina from execution in Indonesia on April 29. The petition, now the fastest growing plea on Change.org - Philippines, reached the Indonesian State Palace through social media and a social movement that persevered to save the life of Mary Jane Veloso."  - Rappler News

RESULT: Mary Jane Veloso was spared from firing squad or execution.
 2. Bukas Balikbayan Box
"President Benigno Aquino III has given instructions for the Bureau of Customs to stop the physical inspections of balikbayan boxes unless X-ray and K-9 examinations give rise to suspicions that they contain prohibited items.
The decision came after Aquino met with Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima and Bureau of Customs Commissioner Alberto Lina on Monday afternoon." 


"Earlier, OFWs took to social media to criticize the BOC's more stringent implementation of the balikbayan box inspections."  

One of the many viral posts

3. Tanim-Laglag Bala
"The arrest of a 56-year-old OFW for allegedly carrying a bullet on her way to Hong Kong triggers public outrage against Manila airport authorities.The most recent incident that caused outrage on social media involved a 56-year-old overseas Filipino worker (OFW) named Gloria Ortinez. She was arrested and prevented from leaving the country for Hong Kong after authorities at NAIA 2 claimed to have found a bullet wrapped in red cloth inside her bag. Ortinez has denied that the bullet was hers. Ortinez also said that she would never bring the bullet with her as she was well aware of Hong Kong's strict security laws.The arrest triggered public outrage, and netizens were quick to react on social media." - Rappler News

RESULT: PRES AQUINO NBI INVESTIGATION and A SERIES OF SENATE HEARING TO HEAR THE CASES OF THE VICTIMS. NBI FINDING SAYS, THERE ARE LAG-LAG BALA MODUS INSIDE NAIA.

Kung sakali at mabiktima kayo ng laglag bala,ganito po ang gagawin ninyo:1. Kapag pinabuksan ang bagahe, huwag pumayag.... Posted by PEBA, Inc. on Wednesday, October 28, 2015

HOW IS CHRISTMAS IF YOUR PARENTS ARE OFW'S?


"Christmas in the Philippines will never be complete without the 9-day simbang gabi, the scrumptious Noche Buena laid out on the dinner table, and the whole family laughing wth glee as the kids open their gifts by the tree."

But how do OFW kids celebrate Christmas?

If you're an OFW, how do your kids celebrate Christmas?
