Media Role in Peace Advocacy
« on: October 23, 2020, 02:03:26 AM »
DAET, CAMARINES NORTE (2 December 2005) -- The media plays a big role in the advocacy for peace and development and there is a need to empower its members.

This was stressed by Philippine Information Agency (PIA) Bicol regional director Eduardo A. de Leon in Friday's forum on the National Internal Security Program (NISP) sponsored by the Camarines Norte Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC), the provincial government in cooperation with the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Philippine Information Agency (PIA).

The forum, attended by members of the print and broadcast media in the porvince, was aimed at seeking their support to the NISP, which forms part of the 10-point agenda of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Executive Order 21 series of 2001 provides for a coordinative and integrative system in the internal security of the country and mandates the formulation of the National Internal Security Program (NISP).

The agencies involved in the program include the DILG, PNP, DND, AFP, DOH, DFA, OPAPP, OPARD, NEDA, PMS, PIA, NAPC, DSWD, DA, DOJ and DPWH.

De Leon said that through Executive Order 127 the media is encouraged to be pro-active in the information drive promoting programs/projects of the government. "But said to say some mediamen are unaware being used in the counter propaganda of the leftist groups," he added.

AFP Brig. Gen. Armando Cunanan, Philippine Army 9th Infantry Division deputy commander, in his message said that the best weapon in the attainment of peace is information dissemination wherein a well informed nation is a well informed citizenry.

Cunanan affirmed that "it is a must to reach the media for the AFP cannot do it alone in the drive for a peaceful community. We need a concerted effort of all stakeholders to attain peace."

NEDA Bicol asst. regional director Gerelyn J. Balneg, for her part, stressed that there could be no development without peace. "Peace and development go hand in hand."

Balneg said without peace the goal to achieve poverty reduction through economic growth, job opportunities and integrated delivery of basic social services will be hard to achieve.

She said that the government aims to lower the poverty threshold from 53 per cent to 26.2 per cent by year 2010. "Bicol is the 4th poorest region in the country, where 48 per cent are poor."

Governor Jesus O. Typoco, Jr. said through the NISP forum, strategies are formulated to attain peace through unity and cooperation to address the peace and order problems that affect the lives of the constituents.
