A letter from De La Salle president Br. Armin Luistro FSC, president of De La Salle Philippines, sent me a copy of his personal letter to the Filipino youth on the eve of the May 13 elections. He requested I reprint it in my column. When I asked him the purpose of his letter, this was his answer: “I really feel I owe the succeeding generations of Filipinos (and FSCs) an apology for leaving behind a nation that I could not be proud of. I ask myself: should we have given more, done things differently, resisted more openly?

Jakarta Public Order Agency head Arifin has warned vendors of takijl (light breaking-of-the-fast snacks) to not sell on sidewalks in restricted areas. “As long as they do not disturb the public order, they can [sell takijl on the streets], but if they disturb public order, we will discipline them,” Arifin said on Monday, kompas.com reported. He cited Jakarta Bylaw No. 8/2007 on public order, which prohibits itinerate vendors from operating on sidewalks, streets and bridges. “Bylaw No. 8/2007 is still in place. Sidewalks, streets, footbridges and bus stops are not places of business,” Arifin said. He said only in certain areas were street vendors allowed to operate on sidewalks. “So there are specific places for street-side vendors, but they have to have a permit from the governor in the form of small and medium business coaching. Not all sidewalks can be used by street vendors,” Arifin said. During the fasting month of Ramadan takjil … [Read more...] about ‘Takjil’ vendors barred from occupying sidewalks in Jakarta
