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.

Philippine-Venezuela Solidarity (Phil-Ven-Sol) Statement


July 5, Independence Day of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela


We condemn the right-wing campaign of violence and terror which has accelerated in the lead up to the July 30 Constituent Assembly elections as an attempt to overthrow the government of President Nicholas Maduro and reverse the gains of the Bolivarian revolution launched by Hugo Chavez, the former President and socialist leader of the revolution. On this day of Bolivarian independence, we stand in solidarity with the Venezuelan people as they struggle to defend the gains of the Bolivarian revolution. In doing so, we condemn the intervention of the United States which has financed and promoted the right-wing opposition to oust the Maduro government.

Duterte’s gravy TRAIN for the rich


The tax system in the Philippines is biased towards the rich. The Duterte government’s new tax reform package House Bill (HB) 5636 or the Tax Reform Acceleration and Inclusion Act (TRAIN), recently adopted by the Lower House of Congress, further burdens the poor – the unemployed and under employed -- and low-income earners.


Genuine tax reform means reversing the pro-rich bias in the taxation system. Genuine tax reform must be a mechanism that redistributes wealth, from the rich towards the rest. Income inequality is increasing with the richest families having incomes some nine times more than that of poor families. Genuine tax reform should be a mechanism for reducing the gap in income inequality between the rich and the poor.


The Duterte government’s tax reform does the opposite. According to estimates by some legislators:

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.
