Manila – Members of Partido Lakas ng Masa held another picket in front of the Malaysian Embassy today.  PLM protested the arrest and detention of 30 pro-democracy activisits in Malaysia, including Romy Castillo, deputy general-secretary of PLM, who was in Malaysia for an exchange visit program with the Parti Sosialis Malaysia.


The wife of Romy Castillo, Tess Castillo, spoke at the picket and pleaded with the Malaysian embassy officials to press its government to release Romy and the 30 others.


Castillo was arrested on June 25 on charges of joining a pro-democracy rally, calling for free and genuine elections. He was taken, together with several others, from a bus en route to the supposed rally site.  He was released on bail.


Yesterday, Castillo was detained at the Kuala Lumpur immigration office and was not allowed to board his flight to Manila. The immigration authorities later said that they were deporting him via Malaysian airlines 840.  But instead of bringing him to the plane, he was handcuffed and forcibly taken by the police to the Balai Police Sepang under IPD Sepang.  The police took his passport and said they will have to verify if it is genuine.  The police investigation is under Officer ASP Hairul (+60196664953).


PLM has already contacted the Philippine embassy in Kuala Lumpur. Consul-General Renato Villa said the embassy wil follow up Ka Romy’s case.  The matter has already been brought to the attention of the Commission on Human Rights and the Overseas Filipino Workers Affairs Office at the Department of Foreign Affairs in Manila.


If Ka Romy is not released soon, PLM vows to stage a bigger rally on Tuesday (July 5).

Manila -- Around 70 members of Partido Lakas ng Masa held a brief picket in front of the Malaysian Embassy this morning to protest the arrests and detention of 30 activists belonging to the Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM).

Sonny Melencio, chairperson of PLM, submitted a letter to a representative of the Malaysian Embassy expressing the PLM’s outrage and condemnation to the ongoing crackdown against Malaysian socialists.

The letter also stated that the latest actions constituted attempt by the Malaysian government to intimidate Malaysian citizens from exercising their civil and political rights.

Melencio said that the PLM would organize more and bigger solidarity protests until the 30 activists are released.

Peace, not war, among neighbors!

Regional cooperation to explore the Spratly islands!


Partido Lakas ng Masa (PLM), a newly formed grassroots political party, calls for a negotiated political settlement of the Spratly islands’ disputes among contesting nations, such as the Philippines, China, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan.


We are opposed to any sabre-rattling, strong-arm tactics, bullying, warships deployment or any actions that may contribute to a military conflict in the region.

No to Sabre-Rattling! A Negotiated Political Settlement to the Spratly Islands Dispute!

The Partido Lakas ng Masa condemns any actions that increase military tensions in the region and contribute to a regional military conflict, by countries that lay claim to the Spratly Islands. We are opposed to any sabre-rattling and stand for a negotiated, political settlement, of the disputed claims to the area. Therefore we deplore China’s strong-arm tactics and bullying, which undermines efforts towards a peaceful, political settlement, of the disputed claims.

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.
