27 Filipino women join 1,000 nominees for Nobel Peace Prize

Twenty-seven Filipino women who have been nominated to the Nobel Peace Prize in 2005 will be presented on Wednesday at 9:45 a.m. at the main theater lobby of the Cultural Center of the Philippines.

They are among the 1,000 women worldwide who have been nominated as a group for consideration by the Nobel Committee in Oslo to acknowledge and publicize the vital work that women do in building peace in their homes, communities, countries and the world. The announcement of the 1000 names will be made on the same day all over the world.

In the afternoon, the women will be featured in three separate public forums: "Upholding Women’s Rights, Building Peace" at the Philippine Normal University (2 p.m.), "Women in Peace Processes – at Communities and Negotiating Tables" at Miriam College (2 p.m.) and " Women Building Peace In Mindanao", a video conference at the WB Global Distance Learning Center of the Asian Institute of Management (4 p.m.).

Of the 27 nominated Filipino women, eight at from Mindanao, three from the Visayas, two from the Cordillera and the rest are from Metro Manila. The women are involved locally and internationally in peace advocacy, governance, human rights, women’s rights, inter-faith dialogue, education, justice, health, psycho-social rehabilitation, empowerment, migrants rights, policy-making, peace negotiations, culture and the arts.

The number 1000 is symbolic, representing the millions of women worldwide, many of who do their peace work quietly, effectively, but without fanfare.

Project 1000 Women for the Nobel Peace Prize 2005 is an initiative of swisspeace, an NGO based in Bern, Switzerland, that organized 20 coordinators worldwide to search for 1000 women who, individually and collectively, are deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize.

The coordinators for Southeast Asia are Karen Tañada, executive director of the Gaston Z. Ortigas Peace Institute, and Paulynn Sicam, editor of CyberDyaryo and a member of the GRP Panel for talks with the CPP/NPA.NDF.

Let's see how the Anti GMA forces turn this into another GMA Resign thread.

Anyway, here's some good news during out trying times. :)

    I'm sure none of the bitter women of LAFI is a nominee. The more this hysterical anti-GMAs will be bitter about their useless life. The best they have are lousy anger laden posts in the PEx.

    This thread should catch the attention of proud Filipinos. But it looks like twisted values are more concerned with scandals and chewing each other.

    No one seems interested to know who are these nominees, what did they do to be nominated, what area in the Philippines are each of them from. Anybody who can give these additional information? Even the newsitem did not say much. A magazine issue should be devoted picturing each of these nominees.

    Here is the list of names:
    Loreta Navarro-Castro (Philippines)
    Myla Jabilles Leguro (Philippines)
    Irene Morada Santiago (Philippines)
    Elisa Gahapon del Puerto (Philippines)
    Piang Tahsim Albar (Philippines)
    Zenaida Tan Lim (Philippines)
    Pura Sumangil (Philippines)
    Teresita Ang-See (Philippines)
    Hadja Bainon Guiabar Karon (Philippines)
    Sister Mary Soledad Perpi?an (Philippines)
    Adoracion Cruz Avisado (Philippines)
    Ana Theresia Hontiveros-Baraquel (Philippines)
    Zenaida Brigida Hamada-Pawid (Philippines)
    Cecile Guidote Alvarez (Philippines)
    Corazon 'Dinky' Juliano-Soliman (Philippines)
    Delia Ediltrudes 'Duds' Santiago-Locsin (Philippines)
    Haydee B. Yorac (Philippines)
    Maria Lorenza Palm-Dalupan (Philippines)
    Marilou Diaz-Abaya (Philippines)
    Mary Lou Alcid (Philippines)
    Miriam Coronel Ferrer (Philippines)
    Miriam Suacito (Philippines)
    Sister Mariani Dimaranan (Philippines)
    Teresa Banaynal Fernandez (Philippines)
    Teresita Quintos-Deles (Philippines)
    June Caridad Pagaduan Lopez (Philippines)
    Seiko Bodios Ohashi (Philippines)

    If you want to know a little bit more about these women go to:
  • bakit nominated ang mga members ng peace negotiations from the government panel? eh sila yung ginagamit ng militar to quell rebellion through deceptive peace talks habang pinapatay ang mga progresibo.
  • progresibo = communists = never for peace unless they're already in the same position of the tyrants they wanted to oust in the first place.
