Categories: East Asia, Philippines, Citizen Media, Development, Economics & Business, Politics, War & Conflict

Blogkadahan tells story of Jolo [1], a small town in the southwest of the Philippines which she remembers as once one of the most beautiful place in the country. Now, she says, after 30 years of neglect by the government, being torn apart by war, prejudice, and opportunistic vultures, Jolo is transformed: “…from being a place of hope, it has become a place of fear.” [2]
