The procession-march against killings in Balic-Balic, Manila made several stops to the streets or infront of houses where the killings happened.


There have been 18 killings in the area but we can only cover some.


We lighted a few candles for them, recited prayers and the relatives spoke -- wife, children, mother, friends and kins.


The march ended at the wake of a barangay treasurer killed just recently.


When I spoke, I said the war on drugs is wrong on three counts: first, it's really a war that exterminates the poor; second, it's not after the source of the drugs and the real syndicates (in fact, it protects them); third, it allows the corrupt police syndicates to lead the war, that is why the killings haven't stopped.


The Balic-Balic procession is co-organized with the Human Rights Ministry of the Parish, the PLM and IDEFEND.


The PLM is still planning to continue the community marches in other places to unify and emboldened the community to resist the war on drugs.


Please wait for next advisory on where the protest processions will be held.


We urge the communities where the killings have happened -- and where they're continuing -- to rise up in indignant protests.


The PLM (Partido Lakas ng Masa) will be with you.

Hindi Solusyon ang Pagpatay

Kadalasang biktima ng illegal na droga ay kaming mga kabataan, mga kabataang nalululong sa illegal na droga at mga kabataang biktima ng krimeng gawa ng mga lulong sa ipinagbabawal na gamot. Kami ang mga kabataan na sinasabing nais na protektahan ng war on drugs ng administrasyong Duterte.


Ngunit sa nakalipas na mahigit isang taong pagpapatupad ng war on drugs, patuloy pa rin ang kalakaran ng illegal na droga at mga kabataan pa rin ang binibiktima nito. At kabataan pa rin ang napapatay sa war on drugs na sinasabing magbibigay ng proteksyon sa amin.


Hindi isolated ang kaso ni Kian, nang sinimulan ang war on drugs maraming kabataan - sangkot man sa illegal na droga o inosenteng nadadamay lamang o napagkakamalan lamang – ang napapatay. Hindi naging proteksyon ang war on drugs sa mga kabataang napatay, bagkos, ang war on drugs pa nga ang kumitil sa kanilang buhay na nais protektahan nito. Halos lahat rin ng mga nabibiktima at napapatay na mga kabataan ay mula sa pamilyang mahihirap na silang higit na nangangailangan ng proteksyon laban sa mga sindikato ng ilegal na droga.


Kung ang parating nakikita ng mga kabataan ay ang mga paglabag sa karapatang pantao at ang kawalan ng due process, anong magandang maituturo nito sa mga kabataan? Hindi makatutulong sa paghuhubog ng kaisipan ng mga kabataan ang araw-araw na karahasang kanilang nakikita. Ang mga karahasang ito ay magbubunga ng kultura ng karahasan na siguradong magiging problema ng kasalukuyan at mga susunod na pang henerasyon.

Duterte's State of the Nation Address (Sona) PDF Print E-mail

By Sonny Melencio


WHOEVER thought of the theme of Duterte’s Sona – “A Comfortable Life for All” – must be living in Mars, if not out of his mind. How can life be comfortable for all when there is martial law in Mindanao. Can you tell that to the 260,000 refugees from Marawi still languishing in evacuation centers? The 8,000 Tokhang victims and the widows of the war on drugs in poor neighborhood? The millions of contractual workers who are denied regular work despite Duterte’s promise of dismantling labor contractualization? The landless farmers? The masses suffering from unemployment, rising prices of basic commodities, and lack of decent housing?


The comfortable life finds resonance only among the hundreds of trapos, top bureaucrats and VIP honchos who paraded inside the Batasan. For the many, especially for the tens of thousands who rallied outside, the “comfortable life” is another comfortable lie peddled by the Duterte administration.


Duterte’s Sona is almost a repeat of last year’s, but minus the expectations from many who watched last year’s event. It lacks a coherent message. It was rambling and without focus; the theme itself was not explicated.


At certain points, the Sona is crass entertainment. Duterte had the sense to veer away from his disgusting and disturbing rape jokes, but he managed to keep the gallery entertained with the usual boys’ talk, like how many wives each of the male government officials in the gallery is keeping. After depicting this as a natural inclination of men, he then pilloried Senator Leila de Lima for immorality, for having a driver lover.

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.
