February 9 is Abante Mindanao’s big day

By Joe del Puerto Felicilda

ABAMIN or Abante Mindanao, the only Cagayan de Oro-born partylist, is holding its grand launching on the 9th of this month here in the city.
ABAMIN President Maximo “Maxi” B. Rodriguez Jr. told BusinessWeek Mindanao that  the day-long event will be highlighted by a Holy Mass at the Saint Augustine Cathedral and a multi-group motorcade around the city. 

“We expect thousands of our members and supporters to join us in this most significant event in life of ABAMIN, the one and only partylist group conceptualized and born right here in Cagayan de Oro City,” said Rodriguez. 

ABAMIN is a movement founded by Representative Rufus B. Rodriguez of the 2nd District of Cagayan de Oro, whose advocacy centers on true peace, solidarity and justice, as well as on the economic, social and political developments in Mindanao.

Rodriguez further said ABAMIN aims to represent in the Lower House of Congress the marginalized urban poor, the unrepresented indigenous peoples, the oppressed and those who are directly affected by the ongoing conflicts in this part of the country. 

The younger Rodriguez, who leads the ABAMIN nominees, revealed that similar activities are simultaneously taking place on the same day in such key cities as Davao, Gingoog, Ozamis, Malaybalay, Butuan and Surigao, among others.
