Reject the Con Ass initiatives of a fascist cheat president.

Stand for a united front with the masses.

A newly formed political party called on the people today to rise up against President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s moves to amend the constitution through a constituent assembly or through a declaration of emergency rule or martial law.

Partido Lakas ng Masa (PLM) chair Sonny Melencio said “Gloria’s moves to amend the constitution will surely backfire on her because the people will not stand for another four years of corruption and elite trapo rule. She has repeatedly denied any involvement in any moves to amend the constitution that her minions in the House of Congress have been fervently pushing for, but the burden of proof is the time she recites her speech before a gallery of trapos today. We challenge her to categorically state in her Sona speech that she will step down on June 30, 2010 no matter what happens,” said Melencio.

Partido Lakas ng Masa (PLM), a political party formed by militant groups, Sanlakas, Bukluran ng Manggagawang Pilipino (BMP), Kongreso ng Pagkakaisa ng Maralitang Lungsod (KPML), Pagkakaisa ng Manggagawa sa Transportasyon (PMT) and other allied sectoral organizations marched today from Tandang Sora to St Peter’s church to stage a ‘people’s counter-sona’ attended by tens of thousands of workers, urban poor, transportation workers and other sectors.

Added Melencio, “The people from across all social sectors will be keenly awaiting her sona speech not just outside the parliament of the streets but in their homes, offices, factories and schools because this will be presumably her last state of the nation speech. The people’s anger against a corrupt, fascist cheat regime has manifested itself in a series of counter-sona protests being held in other parts of the country today.”

Warned Melencio, “If Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo pushes through with Con-ass, or declares emergency rule or martial law, we call on all freedom loving Filipinos to rise up and form a counter government under a People’s Congress composed of all opposition forces against the ruling regime.”

“We also call on the masses to set up local popular councils against pro-GMA’s local government units. Lastly, we call on all patriotic soldiers to withdraw allegiance to the ruling regime to support and defend the people’s congress and the people’s government” concluded Melencio.###
