DMIA mas papatok ba kung ibabalik sa dati nitong pangalan na Clark International Airport?

RA 10086 - An Act Strengthening People's Nationalism through Philippine History by changing the nomenclature of the National Historical Institute of the Philippines, strengthening its powers and functions and for other purposes. Under this Act a revised guidelines were issued: I. Who may name of rename - all public... places (national properties) may be named or renamed by the Phil President through a proclamation or by through legislation III. Character of names - 1. Proposed names must have historical and cultural significance and must contribute to the positive development of national pride through the good example exhibited by the name being used IV. NAMING/RENAMING AFTER PERSONS 1. Street. plaza or any public place may be named or renamed to honor a person or family who contributed to the welfare of the Filipino People. 3. Public places such as the those already named after (Philippine) presidents, national heroes cannot be replaced with the names of people of lessed importance.

Both CIA and DMIA were not named in accordance with this guidelines. DMIA name was approved by the CDC board resolution of 2001, CIA name has no resolution. There is presumption of regularity in using the name DMIA on account of this resolution and two (2) Executive Orders (EOs 193 and 716) empowering Clark International Airport Corporation to manage and operate the Clark Civil Aviation Complex comprising 2,200 hectares and the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport.

Who is Clark and Who is Diosdado Macapagal?

Clark is Major Harold Clark, and american pilot who perished in a seaplane crash in panama in 1917. During the early years of Phil-American of the last century, the american cavalry forces made a camp or fort north of Angeles, and by virtue of an EO of american president Theodore Roosevelt issued on Sept of 19003 named it as fort stotsenburg. later it became an airfield with the advent of the airplanes and named it as Clark Air Field and in 1949 as Clark Air Base. This name Clark is an imposition to us by our former colonial masters. Tanong ko po - and pag gamit ba ng pangalang clark ay naaayong sa itinatakda ng NHCP guidelines under article I section 1. and under article IV section 3 and 4? Ang paggamit ba ng pangalang Clark ay nakakadagdag sa ating pambansang dignidad? Ano ba ang magandang halimbawa na dapat tularan ng kabataang pilipino sa nagawa taong Clark sa ating bansa? Ano ba ang nagawa ni Clark para mag contribute sa "welfare of the filipino people? Ang gusto ng CIAC board ay ipangalan nalang kay Disodado Macapagal ang terminal at ang airport ay kay Clark - please read again sec 3, article IV of the guidelines - kapag naipangalan mo na sa isang presidente ng ating bansa and isang public place hindi na po ito pwedeng ipangalan sa isang tao na mas mababa and posisyon sa presidente. Presidente po si Disodado Macapagal tapos ang balak ng CIAC ay ipangalan nalang sa kanya ang terminal, at ang buong airport facilities at aviation comples ay ipangalan kay Clark, ang terminal ay isang bahagi lamang ng airport. Hindi po ba demotion ito under the guidelines?

Sino naman po si Diosdao Macapagal - siya po ay first kapampangan president of the philippines, he is the fahter of land reform law that "emancipipated" the farmers from the bondage of the soil they tilled. Galing pos siya sa mahirap na pamilya, Naigapang po niya and kanyang sarili sa pagaaral sa pagtulong ng mga kamaganak at mga mababait na pilantropo para makatapos ng kolehiyo, abugasya, naging congressman at naging presidente. Hindi nabahiran ng anumang anomalya ang kanyang administrayon. Noong pong presidente siya mula 1960-1964, Philippines is second in Asia after Japan in terms of economic develpment. Isa siyang magaling na manunulat at poetang kapampangan, artista sa entablado at marami pang iba. Huwaran po siy at dapat tularan ng mga kabataan dahil sa kanyang marangal na pagkatao. Isang mahirap o dukhang pilipino na nagsikap na magaral at naging presidente ng ating bansa. Kaya ang bansa po sa kanya ay "the poor boy from lubao, pampanga.

Tanong ko po ulit, sino and dapat tularan s Maj. Harold Clark ba na isang amerikano o si Diosdado Macapagal, isang maralitang pilipino na naging presidente ng pilipinas? Sino po ba sa kanila and nagdadagdag ng pambansang dignidad as ating bansa, sino ang nakatulong sa kanila para sa kagalingan ng mga pilipino? Basahin po natin ang guidelines and tanungin po natin ang ating sarili, pipiliin po ba natin ang ating kapwa pilipino o ang pangalang idinikta sa atin ng mga dating colonial masters natin.

Maraming salamat po.
