Campo Islam, Zamboanga City, Philippines

The Barangay was founded on August 29, 1935. On that historic day, Governor Frank Murphy declared Lot 290 as Reservation, exclusively for the use of the Moros, under Proclamation No. 841. Lot 290 is the present Campo Islam Panamin or Seaside. The name Campo Islam originated from the native word “Kampung Islam”, which means “Islam Village”.

NOTE: At that time in 1935 the Americans mistakenly referred to the "Samals and Badjaos" as moros. The intention was to provide for the indigenous people and not the followers of the religion of Islam.

Later on, then Municipal Government of Zamboanga ordered the resettlement of Muslim dwellers of Magay and Cawa-Cawa to the Reservation (1939-36). The resettlements were headed by several known Muslim leaders then, among those were: Raja Muda Mandi, Datu Facundo, Datu Taupan, and Imam Utama Amping. The strong leadership of these traditional leaders had brought the barrio into a vibrant and well-organized community.

The Philippines has been a "decentralized" form of government since 1991, contrary to what most Filipinos think. Ever since the creation of Republic Act 7160, each LGU is responsible for its own domain. Even the smallest LGU the barangay creates its own Budget. It is not dependent on handouts from the city, municipality or province. "IMPERIAL MANILA IS A MYTH!", it does not exist anymore. The Philippine budget formulation system is not centralized. "Budgetary planning has been DECENTRALIZED since 1991". It is the responsibility of each LGU to submit their budgetary needs for review. Failure to submit is the problem.

Wars of ancient history were about possessions, territory, power, control, family, betrayal, lover's quarrel, politics and sometimes religion.

But we are in the Modern era and supposedly more educated and enlightened .

Think about this. Don't just brush off these questions.

  • Why is RELIGION still involved in WARS? Isn't religion supposed to be about PEACE?
  • Ask yourself; What religion always campaign to have its religious laws be accepted as government laws, always involved in wars and consistently causing WARS, yet insists that it's a religion of peace?


There are only two kinds of people who teach tolerance:
  1. The Bullies. They want you to tolerate them so they can continue to maliciously deprive you. Do not believe these bullies teaching tolerance, saying that it’s the path to prevent hatred and prejudice.
  2. The victims who are waiting for the right moment to retaliate. They can’t win yet, so they tolerate.

History of Campo Islam, Zamboanga City

The Barangay was founded on August 29, 1935. On that historic day, Governor Frank Murphy declared Lot 290 as Reservation, exclusively for the use of the Moros, under Proclamation No. 841. Lot 290 is the present Campo Islam Panamin or Seaside. The name Campo Islam originated from the native word “Kampung Islam”, which means “Islam Village”.

NOTE: At that time in 1935 the Americans mistakenly referred to the "Samals and Badjaos" as moros. The intention was to provide for the indigenous people and not the followers of the religion of Islam.

Later on, then Municipal Government of Zamboanga ordered the resettlement of Muslim dwellers of Magay and Cawa-Cawa to the Reservation (1939-36). The resettlements were headed by several known Muslim leaders then, among those were: Raja Muda Mandi, Datu Facundo, Datu Taupan, and Imam Utama Amping. The strong leadership of these traditional leaders had brought the barrio into a vibrant and well-organized community.

On the other hand, a Muslim chieftain known as Panglima was responsible in the administration of the adjacent communities of Stanvac and Lower Calarian. Notable among those was Panglima Maruji.

On January 1956 by virtue of RA 1408, Imam Utama Amping was elected into office as the first elected Barrio Lieutenant of Campo Islam.

Continuous migration of people from nearby islands and provinces had transformed this community into a vibrant and densely populated Barangay today. Notable among the migrations were: Japanese Occupation, 1940’s; the conflict between the Ilagas and Blackshirt, 1960’s; and the secessionist war of the MNLF against the Philippine government.

Presently, Barangay Campo Islam is subdivided into four (4) sitios, namely: Campo Islam Panamin, Campo Islam Kasalamatan, Stanvac and Lower Calarian. The whole Barangay was declared Industrial Zone under Zoning Ordinance No. 29 of 1978, despite strong objections from the residents.

On April 2004, Zamboanga City was divided into two (2) congressional districts. Barangay Campo Islam became part of the first congressional district or the west coast district, together with 35 more Barangays.

article from: zambaoanga city government

The villagers of this barangay is not originated here, and the true residents of this barangay lived in Boulevard, that was a long time ago, few years, the people of boulevard transfered to this area, before it was known as Campo Islam, the residents of this barangay before were Samals of boulevard (fishermans living by the sea) then when they transfered here in this Area, they elected a barangay leader, it was President Marcos time, they elected Captain Marumin Sampang, a brave and kind police officer of the Area, so the people decided to chose him to be the Barangay captain when Campo Islam was not still build... the image of Campo Islam was a forestlike barangay, it has a swamp in the middle of the area.. and the approximate diameter was 40 meters in diameter... this swamp were useful for them, they use it for their daily living... when Barangay Marumin Sampang observed that the residents of this barangay were multiplying, he ask for a quick action from President Marcos to cover the swamp because it is also risky for the young ones, the government covered it with the old machineries, soils, and sea stones and donated a living needs for the residents, Then when the barangay was fully covered and more spaces where gained, the residents starts to proliferate in each area od the barangay, after a while, there were more friendly people, a peaceful barangay but there were still missing, when the wife of the Barangay Captain went to the pueblo to sell some meriendas, the customers loved her products and one day one of them asked for the place where she lives, she wondered what to say, but then she just said that, "it was a place where old machineries dump is".. the customer didnt get what she said, so she changed the topic because the barangay still doesnt have a name.. until she came back home and asked his husband the Barangay Captain, his husband answered, It is "Panamin" which means "For Reflection" and the people where starts calling it Panamin, until suddenly a Muslim Missionary came in the Barangay and lived here. He was suprised that the people of the barangay is hospitable, well mannered, Respectul and show the humiliation and of the friendly people... he was really impressed and proud to be part of the peaceful barangay... Until one day he proclaimed it to the Barangay Captain Marumin Sampang and showed his inspiration to the Barangay, he asked to change the name and baptized it as "Kampung Islam/Campo Islam" which means PEACEFUL FIELD/CAMP.. until it was declared by the Barangay Captain and the government approved it... Nowadays, the residents are being multiplied but the peacefulness and cheers of the residents are remaining still in the Area, the people are multi-talented and the residents are mixed-matched.... It was a good living are for me and you will like it to be here...

Barangay's power and authority: A must read for all barangay officials


This is the "Barangay Code of the Philippines".

Barangay anim 4500.gif
A Barangay Clearance is NEEDED in order to get a Business License.
So why is the barangay name not in most business addresses?
Ask your Barangay Captain/Chairman to create a Resolution to make it mandatory to put the barangay name in all Business addresses.
Every Government Unit in the Philippines is within a Barangay. The municipal hall, city hall, the provincial capitol building, and even the Malacañang Palace where the president resides is within a Barangay.

The barangay has power and authority over its domain. The improvement of the barangay rests on the barangay officials. The barangay chairman, the barangay council and the local businessmen forge the prosperity of the barangay. Not the president of the Philippines, senate, nor congress. Not the governor of the province, not the mayor nor council of the municipality or city. Poor barangays stay poor because of weak and/or ignorant(uninformed) barangay leaders.

When roads or any infrastructure need to be built, improved or repaired, all the barangay officials have to do is make a resolution and present it to the city or municipality council. The resolution will force the city/municipal council or responsible government office to hear the legitimate demands. "The squeaky wheel gets the grease."

Each city or municipality is represented by the "barangay association or federation". The elected president of the Association of Barangay Council and the President of Kabataan (SK) association each have a seat in the City/Municipality council. Their powers are the same and equal to the elected city/municipality councilors. They are there to help lobby the demands of the barangays. They are not there just to collect a big salary and rub elbows with the regular elected city/municipality council, but to also represent the needs of the barangays.
The duties of the barangay officials are specifically written in Chapter III(Punong Barangay) and Chapter IV (The Sangguniang Barangay). Read it..

Practically anything that has to do with the barangay, the barangay officials have a say on it and most likely the authority over it. The majority of the barangay officials are not aware of their duties and power. They depend on the city council or mayor. The elected barangay officials are afraid of the mayor and city/municipality's "Sangguniang Panlungsod". They are in fear of being ousted or removed from office. The truth is, the "Sangguniang Panlungsod" does not have the power to remove or suspend any elected barangay officials from office. Only the COURT OF LAW can do this (judicial branch of the government). Elected public officials can't be suspended by the DILG or the office of the president unless an official complaint has been filed, there must be proof and there must be due process. Republic Act 7160 chapter 4, Section 60. Information is power. Be informed. Do not be intimidated by the president, senator, congressman, governor, mayor, vice-mayor, or councilors. Do your job.

The control of traffic is not up to the city council or chief of police. It is controlled by the barangay. If the barangay needs traffic enforcers, the barangay can make a resolution to demand it from the city or municipality council. When the electric coop or the water district do not maintain their lines, the barangay can directly demand for the maintenance from the utility companies. No need to wait for city council.

The citizens also has the power to make demands to the barangay officials. In case the officials get blinded. Simply file an official complaint with the barangay secretary naming the Punong barangay as the respondent representing the barangay.

If the power lines are sagging, don't go to the power company, go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the power company.
If the water lines are busted, don't wait for the water company, go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the water company.
If the potholes in the road are not fixed, don't wait for the The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the DPWH.
Are you beginning to get the point?

Cleaning the shorelines, drainage systems, streets, rivers, and parks within your barangay is YOUR responsibility. You are accountable for this. It is not the responsibility of the City/Municipality officials. The citizens and officials of the barangay are responsible. Stop blaming others.

  • BUDGET: As far as the preparation for the budget expenditures, it starts at the barangay level, then moves on to cities, municipalities, provinces and regions. The barangays need to exercise their authority. They need to put their yearly budget together for their administration and future projects. The majority of the barangays leave this job to the municipality and city. This is so wrong. Then when the budget doesn't come or is lacking, they complain.
  • The budget for the barangays does go to the City or Municipality, but simply for holding and later distribution. The city or municipality DOES NOT approve the budget. It was already approved by congress. The city or municipality simply "distributes" the approved budget.
  • The bureau of internal revenue is in cahoots to subdue the barangays, municipalities and provinces. They call the rightful shares to the taxes collected as "Internal Revenue Allotment Dependency". It is not a dependency. It is the lawful and rightful share of the LGU as specified in "TITLE III, SHARES OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT UNITS IN THE PROCEEDS OF NATIONAL TAXES, CHAPTER I, Allotment of Internal Revenue Taxes, Section 284."
  • "IMPERIAL MANILA IS A MYTH!", it does not exist anymore. The Philippine budget formulation system is not centralized. "Budgetary planning has been DECENTRALIZED since 1991". It is the responsibility of each LGU to submit their budgetary needs for review. Failure to submit is the problem.
  • DURING ELECTIONS: Where do City and Municipality politicians go to campaign? They seek the support of the Barangay officials. They plead to the barangay folks for the votes. Even the candidate for president. But after the election they ignore you. Do not ever forget the power of the barangay.

Ignorance keeps the pinoys thinking that Manila rules. Be informed, be educated and make your barangay prosper.

  • Absolutely NO need for FEDERALISM. It is a ploy to give the Bangsamoro an Islamic State where the religion of Islam is financed by the Philippine government. Bangsamoro will be a HOMELAND not for all Filipinos but for only the Muslim Filipinos. It violates the constitution's "separation of church and state". Religion is always good for the people but it should never be embraced or financed by government. Tax exemption is not tantamount to financing. Every non-profit organization is tax-exempt.

To be a Teacher, doctor, lawyer, engineer, architect, nurse, computer technician; what books do you learn from? English books of course. All your tests are in English. The constitution of the Philippines is written in English. All the laws and new laws introduced by congress are in English. For that matter, you can't be a teacher in a school system unless you know English. The "Licensure Exam for Teachers" is in ENGLISH! Who are these people forcing Tagalog down our throats? Tagalog is simply one of the many dialects of the Philippines. Keep your dialects but learn and be fluent and proficient in ENGLISH.

Natural Resources of Campo Islam, Zamboanga City

Protect the environment

It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.

Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!

Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.

The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.

To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.

Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More

We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.

This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.

Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power and thermal energy conversion. We have too many black outs.

Fiestas and Traditions of Campo Islam, Zamboanga City

In the Philippines a fiesta is usually celebrated in barrios or barangays. It is the official holiday of the LGU, the barangay. Filipinos love fiestas. It is a time for joy and celebration. A fiesta is of Spanish origin and is usually commemorated in association with a christian patron saint. Most barangays whose population have been clustered by Muslims(Moros) and their population is more than that of the Christians, the celebration of the fiesta have been cancelled and replaced with the Hari Raya or Eid al-Fitr.

The cities or municipalities usually have yearly festivals where all the barangays participate. The cities or municipalities hold contests for the best floats in parades.

  • Barangay Fiesta: It does not celebrate Barangay fiesta as the inhabitants are predominantly Muslims (75%). Festivities are observed in the celebration during the Hariraya Ei’dil Fitri as the culmination of the Holy Month of Ramadan.

Campo Islam, along with Taluksangay, Rio Hondo and Recodo, is among the oldest muslim communities in this city which antedate to the time of the old Moro Province of Mindanao.

During the spanish era, my ancestors originally lived in Magay, this city, But when the Christian settlers arrived and increased in number, they were displaced from their homes and forced to moved to Cawa-Cawa (now R.T.Lim boulevard) to established new settlement, where they lived up to the coming of the American regime. Then, somewhere in the year 1903, they had again to give way, when Governor General Frank Murphy issued a proclamation establishing the Moro Settlement at Punta Gavilan (now called Campo Islam) to which this people once more were ordered to resettled themselves. Until the establishment of this Moro Settlement at Punta Gavilan or Campo Islam. it has been a continuous odyssey on the part of this muslim community - and, like the Biblical people of Israel under Moses, my ancestors under the leadership of Imam Amping Uttama have been subjected to the same travails and hardships of having to move from one place to another, like a lost nation in quest of a land they could call their own.

With the establishment of this Moro Settlement at Campo Islam, where they lived from 1903 to the present, this people thought that, at last,they have reached the end of their long journey and they have found a place in their own country where they can live,undisturbed and unmolested.

Then in 1969, Secretary Manuel Elizalde, Jr. of PANAMIN (Presidential Assistance on National Minorities) an agency under the office of the president came to this settlement and promised to reclaimed a portion of their land from the sea and to built them new homes to make their lives more comfortable, they felt very happy and very grateful that at last, after being forgotten and neglected for so long a time, the government has at last proved its sincerity to look after the welfare and interest of the Muslim Filipinos.

Their high hopes and beautiful dreams were short-lived. After reclaiming a portion of their lands from the sea, the PANAMIN abandoned its worked and completely forgotten to redeem its pledge to build new homes for them. But as good citizens, they did not complained, satisfied at the thought that having a settlement they can call their own was good enough for a people whose ancestors in the historical past,had to incessantly move and transfer from one place to another like proverbial nomads.
