An OFW-led Political Party’s Proposal for a Filipino Initiative Against Global Warming (AKA "Vision RP 2021") -- Part II of the PSG Series -- as the Main Components of its Platforms of Government and Socioeconomics


We are finalizing the master plan to tackle the ideal Filipino fight against Global Warming (Climate Change) and provide solutions to socioeconomic problems that may result from it. The Study Group has cooperated in the drafting of (so far) 15 articles that have seen print in the www.mabuhayradio.com’s "Environment" Section. The 15 articles that provide the suggested answers to the four Ws (What, Why, Where, When) and the How to do the above-mentioned Filipino Initiative against Global Warming, as may be spearheaded by the Overseas-Filipino Workers (OFWs), especially Americans of Filipino descent.


Editor’s Note: The name of the PSG is being changed to the Philippine ReVOTElutionary Council, as many of its supporters do not like the terms, "Shadow Government" and "Revolutionary Government or Council."
We have dubbed the proposal the "Vision RP 2021," which is intended to be the basis for its Philippine political party’s economic and governance platforms for the 2013 elections, with Sorsogon as the pilot province.

Hereunder is the Third Draft of the Master Plan’s Summary that the participants are presently editing, improving and/or helping make it more viable and operational:

1.0  VISION.  To make by year 2021 the Philippines the greenest country on Earth, an ecological oasis that is politically independent but economically interdependent and prepared to meet the challenges brought about by Climate Change (Global Warming).

2.0  MISSION.  For the Overseas Filipinos, especially Filipino Americans, to provide the vision, the leadership and primary resources in doing this initiative by persuading the Filipino people to agree to implement the (herein) proposed strategies and tactics by following strictly the tenets of accountability, transparency, integrity and credibility (ATIC) and by electing during the next national and local elections the qualified candidates of the OF-led political party (alliance) or the candidates that it will endorse.

3.0  GOALS.

       3.1  To make not only the Philippine government but also the national economy of the people, for the people and by the people because socioeconomic goals can only be achieved ideally and pragmatically in a functional democracy, or at least the functional version of an American-style democracy and federal form of government, as may be inspired by interfaith doctrines, virtues and values.

       3.2   To showcase the progress of the Filipino people for the past 500 years and highlight their positive contributions to, and their achievements in, many countries on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the expedition led by the explorer Fernando de Magallanes in 2021, which is the historical event of this century.

4.0  OBJECTIVES.

       4.1  To initiate a massive reforestation of hardwood-tree varieties, numbering at least 250-million and an equal number of fruit trees (planted in between the hardwood trees) by year 2020 and to turn Filipino towns, especially in the rural areas, into modern-day versions of Jose Rizal's Dapitan and at the same time make the homeland self-sufficient in food and other basic necessities.

       4.2   To attain full or at least quasi independence from fossil fuels and make the Philippines the leader of a "Wireless (Broadband) Revolution" among developing countries, if not of the Third World.

       4.3   To make the Philippines the ecological-tourism and Marian-pilgrimage capital of Asia and the Mecca of Medicine of the world.

       4.4   To make the Philippine government debt-free both from foreign and domestic lenders and creditors by 2021 or by 2025, at the latest.


        4.5  To make the Philippines the citadel of the world's anti-abortion and anti-prostitution advocates and activists and more importantly, the Common Ground, if not the sanctuary, of pro-people advocacies and activism.


         4.6   To enable Filipinos with disabilities to lead more-productive, if not more-independent, lives by making available and affordable the latest technology and equipment to them.


         4.7  To consolidate the fruits of the 1986 EDSA People-powered Peaceful Revolution by establishing a movement called the "Economic-Development and Social-Advancement" Movement or Evolution, which may become the ultimate arm to implement the "Vision RP 2021."

5.0  STRATEGIES.

       5.1  To energize the Overseas Filipinos, beginning with Filipino Americans, so that they turn their social events into socioeconomic functions and in so doing they can form an "Overseas-Filipino Monetary Fund" to bankroll the suggested economic activities in this presentation.

       5.2  To make the Philippines the pilot project for a new "International Institute of Debt and Development" (I2D2), as proposed by James Robinson III. The details for this strategy of paying off the foreign and domestic debts of the homeland are found in the I2D2-Debt & Development Section of the www.mabuhayradio.com.

       5.3  To organize an International Task Force, which can be like the Filipino version of "The Manhattan Project," in view of the urgency and gravity of the circumstances, problems and threats that the Filipino people face.

6.0  TACTICS.

        6.1  To undertake an educational campaign -- modeled after the ideas of Jose P. Rizal and other Filipino national and regional heroes -- among Overseas Filipinos and their kin in the Philippines and lobbying efforts in the United States, Canada and other countries where there are substantial numbers of Filipino immigrants and contract workers.

         6.2  To piggyback on the golden anniversary of the Statehood of Hawaii and the President William Howard Taft centennial (both in 2009) by holding Filipino-American festivals, trade and travel shows and community nights at some selected stadiums of Major League Baseball teams, Filipino exhibits in county fairs and other mainstream events.

        6.3 To determine by 2012 whether the Philippines will have the political maturity and the resources to submit a bid by 2016 to host the 2020 Summer Olympic Games in a new city that shall be constructed on the Island of Mindanao or in an alternate island.

7.0  The Study Group will have to finalize the suggested FORECASTS, the most-advisable ways of executing the plans, the METRICS (key indicators) and contingency plans for inclusion in the Second Draft of this position paper. # # #
