THIS IS an initiative appropriate to the times. President Duterte has just confirmed that he’s raring to establish a dictatorship. He wants to extend martial law in Mindanao until December this year. And his chuwariwariwap boys in Congress had agreed to this. And now even Vice Leni said don’t be suspicious of his intentions, because he’s out to do good. Seems like he’s out to no good for me.

 

A few days ago, Duterte got an 82% approval rating from the Pulse Asia survey. His highest so far. There was a lot of questions about this survey. The survey was conducted from June 24 to 29. You know what these dates are? These are when President Duterte has gone missing for a week. No one knew where he was at that time. So does this mean people approve of him while he’s missing and not doing anything? It seems people had enough of him, and voted for a peace of mind.

Solidarity greetings to the National Conference Against Dictatorship (NCAD)

The Partido Lakas ng Masa (PLM) extends its strongest solidarity to this historic and courageous event – the National Conference Against Dictatorship -- that comes on the heels of a Supreme Court decision affirming, and thereby supporting, the drift towards a fascistic dictatorship of the Duterte regime. 

We are honored to be conveners of and to participate and speak at the Conference.

We especially acknowledge the new generation of young leaders who are responsible for taking the initiative to organize the Conference. We are now assured that the resistance will continue to grow and recruit more forces. We salute you all and are with you in this resolute campaign to thwart the dictatorial moves of the Duterte regime. 

We agree with your assessment of the current political situation and the need for this Conference. The Duterte regime represents elite rule, albeit a certain faction of the elite, outside of the traditional national oligarchy. The only promises Duterte has fulfilled are the brutal drug war and the widely opposed hero’s burial of the former dictator Ferdinand Marcos.

CALL FOR A NATIONAL CONFERENCE AGAINST DICTATORSHIP
20-21 July 2017

Since he assumed office, President Rodrigo Duterte has still failed to fulfill his promise to “provide for those who have little”: Workers still continue to receive low wages and experience job insecurity because he has failed to fulfill his vow to end contractualization. Small farmers and peasants still suffer from landlessness and rural distress because he has refused to carry out land reform and prevent land grabs. Even middle-class professionals suffer from the high cost of living, inadequate and poor public services, and worsening pollution because he has refused to strengthen the regulation of the market and to pursue progressive taxation. Women and LGBTs, in particular, continue to suffer more as a result of his failure to significantly reduce poverty and improve people’s well-being.

Pahayag ng PLM sa Desisyon ng Korte Suprema


INAYUNAN ng Korte Suprema ang deklarasyon ng martial law sa buong Mindanao.Sa bilang na 11-3-1, ibinasura ang mga petisyon ng iba’t ibang organisasyon laban sa Proclamation 216 na nagdeklara ng martial law sa Mindanao noon pang Mayo 23.

 

Labing-isa ang pabor sa martial law, tatlo ang pumosisyon na dapat hanggang Marawi lamang ito, at iisa ang ganap na tumutol sa martial law. Ito ay ang matapang at progresibong Associate Supreme Court Justice na si Marvic Leonen.

 

Sa pag-ayon sa martial law, humanay na ang Korte Suprema sa mga institusyong nangangayupapa sa paanan ng Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte. Ang buong Kongreso– ang Kamara at Senado – ay napatunayang tau-tauhan lamang ni Duterte. Hindi ito nagpatawag ng anumang pagdinig sa deklarasyon ng martial law kahit na ipinag-uutos ito ng Konstitusyon bente kuwatro oras pagkadeklara ng martial law.

A new party is born. A party for our times.

A party of Change! A party of Socialism!


“Pare-pareho lamang silang trapo!
Mangungurakot na naman yan!
Bobolahin na naman nila tayo!”


Sounds really familiar. We have heard this expression from people of all walks of life time and again. An automatic response, when one is asked about a certain politician or politicians in general.

For decades, generations of politicians from the same clan and some new ones have been deceiving the masses. Every election for them has been an opportunity to make more promises. And after every election, all these remain just that – promises.
