    $4.99

    In Face of the New Peoples Army Frans Welman looks at the people behind the struggle for their rights. Often depicted as rebels, killers, criminals and the like they actually live in a semi feudal, a post colonial society where they are oppressed and exploited.
    The Government of the Philippines condones this exploitation of the poor and deploys its Army against its own people, cheap labor by millions of Philippinos, to force them to abide their corrupted policies. In the Samar in the Visayas archipelago uprisings have a long history. Since the neo-colonial attitude is still prevalent on Samar the people do not need much encouragement to literally fight for their rights as decent human beings. Ordinary farmers they did not need to be recruited for the New Peoples Army of the Philippines, people who are usually depicted as faceless or dead rebels.
    Having been there and knowing the faces of the ‘rebels’ with this book Frans Welman pays tribute to all those who have the courage to stand up for their right, in this case the people of the island Samar  who are exemplary  for all those all over the Philippines who are forced to live in bondage. These heroic people who fight for fundamental human rights are gentle, hospitable and most of all genuinely friendly.

    In Face of the New Peoples Army Frans Welman looks at the people behind the struggle for their rights. Often depicted as rebels, killers, criminals and the like they actually live in a semi feudal, a post colonial society where they are oppressed and exploited.
    The Government of the Philippines condones this exploitation of the poor and deploys its Army against its own people, cheap labor by millions of Philippinos, to force them to abide their corrupted policies. In the Cordillera of Northern Luzon the uprising began when a hydro-electric dam project was going to be implemented in the Chico River which would inundate large tracts of Indigenous land.
    Front man Macliing Dulag led the protest against what would have a devastating effect on his tribe: The Kalinga. Macliing Dulag was murdered in his home in the village of Bugnay by army officers which spurned even stronger protest and in turn led the Cordillera peoples to become part of the New Peoples Army of the Philippines.
    Having been there and knowing the faces of the ‘rebels’ with this book Frans Welman pays tribute to all those who have the courage to stand up for their right, in this case the Kalinga and Bontoc of the Cordillera and in Volume Two to the people of the island of Samar.
    These heroic people who fight for fundamental human rights are gentle, hospitable and most of all genuinely friendly.

    $4.99

    In the Signature two extremes are on the cards: one the insignificance of a signature given by a celebrity or and author, two and more importantly is the signature, the seal of agreement, between oppressed and oppressors, the former with the signature to be set free. The Signature draws attention to the outcome of a plot instigated to change the status quo so that the oppressed Boros, as per example, can achieve their desired freedom from alien and oppressive rule. The Signature takes a swing around the world as implicators and nations become frantic when this political status quo is tampered with beyond control.

    In Cambodia, Anlong Veng the last stronghold of the Khmer, the differences between a country, Cambodia under totalitarian rule and the renewed vigor of life are under the magnifying glass as the author tries to find out what moved the leaders of the brutal revolution to exterminate so many of its own people. Into the heart of its last stronghold Anlong Veng he finds friendly and amicable people who talk openly.
    The connection of the Cambodian people with their glorious past, Angkor Wat Complex, he also puts under the microscope in an effort to find out if that past anchored in the psyche of its people provided the fertile ground for such extraordinary contemporary out of human bounds, no limits, oppression; this in the light of the author’s first encounter with fleeing Cambodians to Thailand where he met them by the thousands and was moved to tears more than three decades ago.
