On October 22, the City of Carson and various organizations will join the entire community in honoring the life’s work and legacy of Larry Itliong – a Filipino-American labor leader and organizer.

A tribute march will start at 9 a.m. on October 22 around the vicinity of Veterans Park located at 22400 Moneta Avenue in Carson followed by a labor awards ceremony. This year’s Larry Itliong Labor Awardees are Tony Doroño, co-founder of the Filipino Migrant Center, and the  UCLA Labor Center, home of the national immigrant youth movement. Entertainment is led by saxophonist, composer, and arranger, Michael “Cody” Dear from UCLA.  The event is free and open to the public.

 Larry Itliong was responsible for organizing immigrant farm workers and cannery workers for over 30 years.  He helped establish the Alaska Cannery Workers Union in the 1930s and helped get a contract that called for eight-hour days with overtime pay.
In 1965, Larry Itliong led the successful “Great Delano Grape Strike” to protest the low wages and miserable working conditions.  In 1966, he led the Agricultural Workers Organizing Committee and merged with the National Farm Workers Association led by Cesar Chavez to form the United Farm Workers union.

In 1970, Larry Itliong founded and became the president of the Filipino American Political Association (FAPA), the first national political Filipino American organization and a crucial alliance between Filipino professionals with 30 active chapters throughout the United States.

“The City of Carson is the first city to recognize the contributions of labor union leader Larry Itliong.  We are proud to have this annual event and proud to have been instrumental in the movement to get AB 7 passed in Sacramento to have October 25 recognized as Larry Itliong Day throughout California,” said City of Carson Mayor Albert Robles.  “On behalf of a grateful City, we give special thanks to Councilmember Elito M. Santarina for his leadership in getting Carson to be the first City in the Country to recognize Larry Itliong Day,” added Robles.

On October 2010, Carson City Council passed a resolution establishing October 25 as Larry Itliong Day in Carson.  City officials are encouraging the community to take part in observing this special day by attending the October 22 event honoring the life’s work and legacy of Larry  Itliong who promoted and fought for the well-being of all of California’s Farm Workers. On June 30, 2015, Assembly Bill 7 (AB 7) was signed into law by Gov. Brown establishing October 25 as Larry Itliong Day in all of California.

The program presents a talented line-up of performers, including CecileandMighty Show, Sampaguita Youth Dance Troupe, Lorian Fausto, Ciamara Morales, Jamie Bacani, Gee G Starr, Jane Provido, Michelle Delos Reyes, Michael Walker, Zack Pogz Villegas Aquino, Michael Pronda, Maaikee Kiyoe Pronda, Sid Bautista Castañeda, Anna Alano, and Binibining Pilipinas USA Pageant Best in Talent winners Caitlin San Diego and Sheri-Lynne Ducusin. Additionally, Binibining Pilipinas USA Christelle Abello, BPUSA Miss Tourism Czarina Hermoso, and their BPUSA Royal Court will also be appearing for meet and greet and photo ops.

MANILA (Mabuhay) — Philippine National Police chief Director General Ronald dela Rosa said Monday he will join President Rodrigo Duterte on his state visit to China.

“He (Duterte) asked me to be there also. Mauna ako sa kanya. Nasa Brunei pa siya, hindi ba? Mauna ako. Baka mamaya nandun na ako,” Dela Rosa said with a laugh.

The PNP chief, however, refused to say what his agenda is in joining the visit.

“Hindi (ko masasabi). Mga classified ‘yun. Pagdating namin, pag-usapan namin. Tingnan ko kung ano ang pwede kong i-share sa inyo. Pero all others hindi muna siguro. Depende,” he said when asked about the matter during a press conference.

He joked that China police might identify the drug lords there.

“Baka identify na ng China police ‘yung mga drug lord doon at pagdating ko doon meron ng boxing ring at magsuntukan na lang kami doon,” he said joking.

Dela Rosa earlier said that most of the illegal drugs and raw materials used for the manufacture of the illegal drugs are from China.

In July, China said it is willing to cooperate with the Philippines in its campaign against illegal drugs.

Also in July, Duterte himself said he will raise the issue of illegal drugs with China following the involvement of Chinese nationals in the illegal drug trade.

Duterte thanks Japan for continued support for PHL

MANILA  (PNA) – President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday thanked Japan for its continued assistance, including patrol ships, to the country.

President Duterte expressed his appreciation to the Japanese people during the 115th anniversary of the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG), which was attended by Japanese Ambassador to the Philippines Kazuhide Ishikawa at the PCG headquarters in Port Area, Manila.

”Let me start by giving our gratitude to Japanese Ambassador Ishikawa, our heartfelt thanks for giving us the ships — some are here, others are coming — and your desire to help the Philippines,” President Duterte said in his speech.

The President recognized Japan as one of the biggest contributors to the Filipino people.

”In my city alone, JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) projects are abundant and it has redounded to the benefit of my countrymen over in Mindanao,” said the former Davao City mayor.

”And now that I’m the President, you continue to pour the aid that you feel you want to extend to us and again, we’d like to thank the Japanese people, your Emperor and your government,” he said.

President Duterte said the Philippines needs more ships to patrol the country’s more than 7,000 islands.

”We need the ships. If you count the number of islands of about 7,000 plus, that would count to so many great miles of coastlines. It is not enough but at least we have the ships to begin with. The old ones plus the new one that has been delivered to us, would greatly help us in this endeavor,” he said.

For his part, Ishikawa said that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, during his meeting with President Duterte at the Laos ASEAN Summit last Sept. 6, announced Japan’s intention to provide a new loan for the construction of larger patrol ships for the Philippines.

President Duterte is set to meet again with the Japanese Prime Minister when he visits Japan on October 25-27.

”On this occasion, the two leaders will further discuss ways to enhance friendship ranging from peace and security, fight against terrorism and economic cooperation, such as infrastructure development and people-to-people exchanges,” Ishikawa said.

”We will work together with the government of the Philippines to further deepen our strong relationship,” he added.
