Atienza urged to reinstate sacked Aurora CENRO exec

I almost missed this one. This news adds a new twist to the illegal logging situation in Aurora. from journal online by Mamer Bañez.

Four non-government organizations and people’s organizations urged Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Lito Atienza to reinstate a former community environment and natural resources officer in southern Aurora who was sacked due to alleged “rampant illegal logging” in the town.

The Ugnayan ng Mamamayan sa Lungsod at Nayon, Inc., the Catholic Association of Ibona composed of 525 families, the Dingalan chapter of Task Force Sierra Madre and the Multi-Sectoral Forest Protection Committee called on Atienza to reconsider his earlier decision relieving former CENRO Meliton Vicente, Jr., citing his efforts to protect the natural resources in southern Aurora. They also denied reports that illegal logging is rampant in the town.

Read the last sentence and decide. The full news is here.

  1. Mr. Atienza, Senator Ed Angara, Gov. Castillo, are fully aware of of logging abuse in the entire Aurora Province, they started talking to act against the logging problem since the massive mountain erosion, flood, huge number of death when strong typhoon hit the province. President Arroyo described the illegal loggers as Terrorist and I have written her a letter telling that I am looking forward to apply in reality their plan of action.

    We have road problem during rainy season caused by flood and soil erosion, experts have found out that these are due to ravaged mountain.
    These are major problems that we are exposed to, existing problems that remains unresolved. Our Officials will just come out, talk, talk, talk on the next historical landslide.
    Aurora’s domestic economy has been badly affected.

  2. ay anu kayang nagawang mabuti ng CENROna iyan para hilingin ng church-supported NGO na ibalik sa dingalan? sa panahun ni meliton vicente de naman nasugpu ang ilegal na pamumutul at pagbibiyahe ng kahuy mula mga baybaying barangay ng san luis, ibuna at umiray sa dingalan at umiray sa gen. nakar, quezon. pati pag-uuling de rin niya nasawata. ang masaklap, may mga legal na paraan para makapag-hanapbuhay ang mga tau na wood-based micro-industry peru AYAW niyang payagan! nagpanukala na aku niyan sa kanya mismu peru WALA RAW LEGAL NA SOURCE NG KAHUY!?!#@&!!! mantakin mu iyun! ay nung siya ang cenro sa dingalan MAY MGA DOKUMENTONG PIRMADU NIYA na pinapahintulutan niyang ibyahe yung kunwari ay mga GALING SA BAHA NUNG 2004 na mga kahuy!?!!#@

    pag home-based micro-industry ta ay mga pangkarinawang tau ang gagawa at makikinabang. hinde kagaya ng mga smuggler na makapal magregalu. . . . . ay kakka, paanu na baga nitu!

    ang nakakapagtaka, bakit ang mga miyembro at opisyal ng environmental NGO (RAW) na suportadu ng pari ay humiling na pabalikin sa dingalan ang walang kwentang cenro na iyan! bakiiiiiit?!??

    alam kaya ni father na ang marami sa bumubuu ng NGO (RAW) na itu ay MAGKAKAHUY rin? kilalang-kilala ku ang mga iyan. . . at de nakakatuwa ang mga paninira nila ng kagubatan. yung iba sa kanila ay kasabwat din ni CENRO na gustu nilang pabalikin. . .

  3. hindi catholic church organization ang gusto magpabalik sa cenro, ito ay isang paglilinaw mula sa pari ng dingalan. ginamit nila ang simbahan dahil ang mga organisasyon na binangit ni mamer banez ay nakikinabang sa uling. sana mamer nagtanong ka sa pari bago ka sumulat ng balita na nagpakilala lang sa yo na mga taga simbahan sila. baka naman nakikinabang ka rin ( i said baka?)
