OAV Akyat Barko 2011
Thursday, 17 November 2011 10:10    | Written by Sherwin Toledo    PDF Print E-mail

11 November 2011, Brussels - As part of its efforts to increase the number of overseas absentee voters to the May 2013 National Elections, the Philippine Embassy in Brussels conducted its the 1st "Akyat Barko" field registration this year on 11 November 2011 at the Port of Antwerp, Belgium.

The team, headed by Second Secretary and Consul Christina Rola (5th from left), was able to register 20 seafarers of the all-Filipino crew of Japanese cargo ship M/V Santa Isabella that was docked in Antwerp due to the Europe-wide holiday, the Armistice day.

The Port of Antwerp, a multifunctional port where all types of freight are loaded, unloaded, stored and handled, is the second largest port in Europe for international shipping freight and the tenth largest in the world.

The Philippine Embassy is set to hold field registrations in Luxembourg and in other places in Belgium to increase the participation of Filipinos there in the May 2013 National Elections.

All Filipino nationals who are at least 18 years old can register as overseas absentee voters. They need only to present their valid Philippine passport to be registered. For complete information, you may check the Embassy's website at

BAE Mindanao in Brussels

27 October 2011 -- Philippine Ambassador to Belgium Her Excellency Victoria Bataclan, accompanied by the entire Philippine Embassy complement, attended the opening of the Filipino visual arts exhibition entitled, "Bae Mindanao: Works of Women About Women of Mindanao" held today at the Brenart Gallery in Brussels.

In her remarks at this special event, the Ambassador congratulated Ms. Guia Mabel Acosta, curator and exhibit organizer, for the initiative of bringing the Philippines - specifically Mindanao - to Europe for the second year in a row.

Ambassador Bataclan highlighted that this year's exhibit was "a celebration of three things that Filipinos hold dear: Philippine arts, the empowerment of women and the untapped beauty that is Mindanao". She added that, "the universality of womanhood as a subject - as seen through a Filipina's eyes - will certainly captivate the interest of our European friends and will allow them to have a deeper appreciation of how much we have in common despite differences in our cultures".Brenart_2

Ms. Acosta, who was unable to participate at the event, had her message read by   Mr. Robert Malengreau, Director of the Brussels International Independent Film Festival, and a friend of the Philippines who regularly promotes Philippine films in Belgium for more than three decades.

This exhibition, running from 28 October to 12 November 2011, was jointly organized by Ms. Acosta and Mr. Jack Mener, the administrator of the Brenart Gallery. It can be recalled that both of them staged the Brussels exhibit of  "Tanaw Mindanaw" held in September 2010 in cooperation with the Philippine Embassy in Brussels.END.
