Maute terror group invaded Marawi and has been causing chaos, leading Pres. Rodrigo Duterte to declare Martial Law at Mindanao.
Martial Law during Marco’s regime and Durterte’s is viewed differently. Before the incident at Lanoa del Sur happened – from Marco’s regime and even until Duterte became the president, what we could get from the news were negative things and negative feedbacks regarding Martial Law, but this time, it all seems to be positive. Media now seems to tackle martial law more of as “beneficial”, rather than something that would “violate people’s rights.” Media also used to televised clips of people rallying against Martial Law, but this time, the rallying of the students (particularly UP students) and other people almost seems like it’s not happening.
With the sudden changes of how media handles Martial Law issues, I concluded that what the media is trying to “set” and influence to the public is that Martial Law at Mindanao is an absolute need. They now doesn’t focus and doesn’t air videos of people rallying against martial law as much as they used. They now report Martial Law as something that will save our fellow countrymen because they want the mass audience to support Pres. Duterte’s Martial Law at Mindanoa (which also have the tendency to be implemented in our whole country).
“This is just a straw, this isn’t harmful. This can’t kill.” It could be that some people think that way. But this poster gives people the awareness and/or reminder that straws can harm aquatic animals.
Most of us human beings use straw on a daily basis. It seems to be inevitable to not use one especially when we drink carbonated drinks. However, we should keep in mind how our acts could affect everything in our world. The straws we did not properly dispose fills-in the lakes, seas, oceans, and other bodies of water which is already a home to our aquatic animals. There are a lot of documentary clips in the internet that shows and/or prove how perilous straws are to the sea creatures.
We can actually skip using straw – we don’t necessarily need it. We, humans are made by God, as well as the animals. If our lives matter, so do theirs. Imagine if you are the one who’s suffering from such thing like having trashes in your environment which is very uncomfortable and dangerous to your life, would you like it? Can you tolerate it? No, right? So does our aquatic animals. If we want to, and if we have the right to live normally – without any risk in our surroundings, so do the animals.
If all of us will skip using straw, it can make a difference. It can help lessen the volume of trashes in the bodies of water. It can save lives.
