June 9, 2018 – Carrying hand-painted pro-ocean anti-plastic placards and hardy eco-warrior hearts, 67 Boholanos marched 19 kilometers from Tagbilarn City’s Plaza Rizal (Kilometer Zero) to Alona Beach in Tawala, Panglao to raise awareness to the worsening threats to the world’s oceans and seas.
Locally named “Baktas Alang sa Kadagatan”, the event takes its cue from the USA’s “March for the Ocean”, (also set today and replicated globally) which advocates for the same intensified action to protect the oceans. The march echoes the call for the ban of single-use plastics, reduction of all forms of ocean pollution, corporate accountability for plastic pollution, and the protection of vulnerable coastal communities.

...butterfly wings flutter, as a soft breeze wafts through, whizzing: listen. Lightnings crack, thunders roar, as ravens cry in flight, cawing: listen, listen, take notice. Where the ‘baji’ artists break their silence, canvases are stretched out and slathered with colors, brushes gliding through, deliberately scraping: look, listen, take action.

|Guimbawan sa Batuan 2018 is Batuan's yearly festival in honor of the Sto. Niño.|
Sunday morning, 28th of January, there was an unusual hustle and bustle in downtown Batuan, Bohol. While its famous roadside attraction, the ShipHaus, still drew in the usual selfie-stick-toting tourist-types – elsewhere in the poblacion, around the market, the municipio, the plaza, and the ogee-arched parish church, brimmed with people, young and old, excitedly awaiting the start of Batuan’s own Sto. Niño fête, the Guimbawan Festival.
