The Philippine Government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) have reached an agreement. Both parties have concluded negotiations on the Framework Agreement which was held at the State Room of the Palace of the Golden Horses hotel in Kuala Lumpur and have peacefully achieved something that we may call as a "historical moment" not only for the political side of the country but for our nation as a whole.
Soon enough, there will be no more Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) and will be replaced with an all new autonomous political entity: the "Bangsamoro." Bangsamoro is seen to be established by 2016 and will be created through an Executive Order and supported by Congressional resolutions.
"The ARMM (Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao) is a failed experiment. Many of the people continue to feel alienated by the system, and those who feel that there is no way out will continue to articulate their grievances through the barrel of a gun," the President stated, and is looking forward in paving a "final, enduring peace in Mindanao."
Its core territory will be the present five-province, two-city Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, the six towns in Lanao del Norte (Baloi, Munai, Nunungan, Pantar, Tagoloan and Tangkal) and the barangays in the towns of Kabacan, Carmen, Aleosan, Pigcawayan, Pikit and Midsayap that voted for inclusion it he 2001 plebiscite; the cities of Cotabato and Isabela in Basilan and all other contiguous areas where there is a resolution of the local government unit or there is a petition of at least ten percent of the qualified voters in their area.
The agreement is set to be signed in Manila next week, but no exact date and place has been set yet. The Framework Agreement will be signed in the presence of Aquino, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, and MILF chief Al Haj Murad Ibrahim

Not only can Republic Act 10175 or the Cybercrime Prevention Law potentially incriminate netizens through their Facebook statuses and tweets, the new law also empowers the Department of Justice (DOJ) to block access to social media networks and websites, including Facebook, Twitter, and the popular meme-based website 9gag, Kabataan Partylist warned Saturday.
In a public forum held at the UP College of Mass Communication on September 29, Kabataan Partylist Rep. Raymond Palatino explained that “such is the power that the Anti-Cybercrime Law gives to DOJ that even access to social networking sites may soon be lost.”
Section 19 states, “When a computer data is prima facie found to be in violation of the provisions of this Act, the DOJ shall issue an order to restrict or block access to such computer data.”
“This effectively gives DOJ total control of the Internet in the Philippines. As only prima facie evidence is needed, the new law has done away with due process,” Palatino said.
Online censorship under Section 19 is more encompassing than traditional censorship, Palatino added. “If for example, an online article is said to be libellous, DOJ may order the total shutdown of its host domain, effectively censoring not just the article in question, but also other articles in that site – a clear violation of the constitutional right to free speech.”
Xambayan Pilipinas and other blogs and personal sites can have their domains shut down if they are reported and found to be in violation of the Cybercrime Prevention Law. Posting any disturbing posts on ANY social networking site might cut your freedom to express yourself in the internet. Government websites are continued to be hacked by "hacktivist" groups that are against this new law. Even The Pirate Bay, a well-known torrent site appeals to the public to help stop the Cybercrime Prevention Law.
Cybercrime Prevention Act takes effect on October 3, 2012.
