BMP-KPML-PLM protesters offered songs
and flowers to pro con-ass legislators



In a bid to sustain its hounding shame campaign, members of the militant labor group BMP and its allied organizations, KPML (Kongreso ng Pagkakaisa ng Maralitang Lungsod) and Partido Lakas ng Masa (PLM) trooped their way to 2 members of the lower house residing in Quezon City.

This time around, the group simultaneously offered flowers and songs to Reps. Nanette Daza and Bingbong Crisologo in what they perceived was a way to convince the above mentioned lawmakers to withdraw their signatures to the House Resolution 1109.

Romy Castillo, PLM spokesman explained to the public that “All those lawmakers who were not vocal but became part of the signatories should be reminded of their anti-people act and therefore must heed to the urgent call to withdraw”.

The group further believed that if these legislators reconsider their signatures, then their chances of recovering their lost grounds would be intact and would work favorably come the peoples’ verdict in 2010.

“Prime movers in the mold of Nograles and his cohorts should be singled out for entertaining chaos from the possible wrath and discontentment of the Filipino people. This early, various sectors and concerned personalities and individuals were already wary of the consequences of the convening of the Constituent Assembly.” Castillo added.

BMP and its allied organizations vowed to vigorously pursue their hounding shame campaign to the 211 pro Con-Ass legislators.

Goldilocks Workers Slammed Corruption in NLRC

Hundreds of workers belonging to the Goldilocks Union together with the militant labor group Bukluran ng Manggagawang Pilipino (BMP) joined by other labor groups and sectors gathered in front of the building occupied by the NLRC National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC) along Banawe Ave, Quezon City for a huge rally.

The rally was a condemnation of the workers to an earlier decision by the NLRC through Commissioner Nieves De Castro involving the case of Goldilocks Union. The decision ordered the dismissal of 127 union leaders on the basis of launching an illegal strike. The decision was a far out for no strike ever took place at the Goldilocks.

The workers further believed that Commissioner De Castro’s decision was grossly unfair to the workers and totally anomalous. Not a single individual would agree that what Commissioner De Castro did was fair and just.

The workers are demanding that Comm. De Castro should inhibit the pending case of Motion for Reconsideration they have earlier filed in response to the decision.

Joel Lachica, the Goldilocks Union President, asserted that “There’s should be no place for a GMA-clone in the mold of Comm. De Castro at the NLRC. She must immediately resign to preserve the integrity of the commission.”

The group vowed to escalate its protests to ultimately achieve justice of their case and pursue its crusade to clean up the scalawags hibernating at the commission. #

News Release

BMP-Sanlakas-PLM “Prayer Warriors” went to the house of Judas Nograles, the leader of the 211 traitors at the house of Representatives


Members of the militant labor group BMP-KPML-Sanlakas trooped to the house of Speaker Prospero Nograles as part of their sustained hounding shame campaign to the 211 pro-con ass legislators.

The group once again performed their litany of prayers through their “prayer warriors” with messages denouncing the act of passing the HR 1109 but this time presenting to the public the house of the legislator they dubbed as the abode of “ Judas Nograles “ adjudged as the Speaker and leader among the Judases of the lower house.

The group decided to hound Judas Nograles to remind him their act of betrayal to the Filipino masses. Mr. Teody Navea, BMP Secretary General and spokesperson of the group stressed that “We singled out Judas Nograles for we believed his culpability of the passing of the resolution. We are disturbed that Judas Nograles seemed unmoved, unaffected and totally disregard the overwhelming negative reactions of Filipino people.”

Judas Nograles earlier claimed that what they have done do not merit denouncement from the masses and as if nothing happened with matching wanton display of arrogance.

The group reiterated their responsorial psalm “Con-Ass ng mga Hudas dapat nang magwakas” among the crowd who witnessed the picket cum prayer rally at the house of Judas Nograles.

The group vowed to continue their crusade with more lined up houses of traitors to be visited for their hounding shame campaign.

BUDHI NG BAYAN ANG MAY ATAS

11 pantig, soneto


Budhi na ng bayan ang nag-aatas
Kung bakit dapat labanan ang Con Ass
Pinatunayan nitong sadyang ungas
Ang mga lingkod bayang di parehas.

Dahil sa dal’wampung milyong pisong kas
Ay pinaglaruan nila ang batas
Ang mamamayan, at pati ang bukas
Ng bayan nating kanilang hinudas.

Kongreso’y parang pugad na ng ahas
Tulung-tulong ang mga talipandas
Kaya kababayan, tayo’y lumabas
Magtulungan tayo laban sa Con Ass.

Budhi na ng bayan ang nag-aatas
Kaya dapat labanan itong Con Ass.


30 PILAK NOON, 20M PISO NGAYON
ni Gregorio V. Bituin Jr.

Tatlumpung pirasong pilak noon
Ang tinanggap ng alagad na si Hudas
Dalawampung milyong piso ngayon
Ang tinanggap para ipasa ang Con Ass.

Baya’y tuluyang ibinabaon
Sa krisis ng mga kongresistang ungas
Na walang pakialam sa nasyon
Mamamayan man ay magkalagas-lagas.

O, bakit kaya sila’y ganoon?
Sariling interes ang kanilang batas!
Iyan ang alam ng mga iyon
Kaya sa mamamayan ay naghuhudas!

Con Ass ng trapo’y itapon ngayon
At ipalit natin ang magandang bukas.

Labanan ang Con Ass!
Para sa Pagbabago: Rebolusyon hindi Cha Cha!

Thousands of workers, urban poor, peasants, women and students under the banner of the Bukluran ng Manggagawang Pilipino (BMP)join today’s rally to slam the convening of the constituent assembly to change the 1987 Constitution and call for genuine social change and not mere charter change.

All sectors of society, particularly the toiling masses and workers believe that this act of the Lower House of Congress, supported and hatched by the GMA administration should be condemned and fought in the highest degree.

Acoording to Leody de Guzman, President of BMP, “This act is so sickening! It is a blatant insult to the Filipino masses and workers. As if 9 years in power for GMA and her cohorts are not enough. Lies and deceit, political killings and plundering of the nation’s coffer by this administration for almost a decade are already intolerable and nauseating.”

“The news that each representative received P20 million for their ‘aye’ vote - a crime that amounts to 4.22 billion for 211 representatives who passed HR 1109 - while thousands of workers are getting retrenched due to the crisis and the poor getting hungrier is really disgusting. We will not let these representathieves, along with the GMA administration go away with this impertinent act unpunished! We will hound and shame them persistently.” de Guzman adjoins.

De Guzman asserted that “Clearly, the Filipino workers and poor masses can no longer rely on the present system. There are talks that even the Supreme Court will decide and act favorably to the GMA administration. The whole system is rotten. The system that perpetuates this kind of politics – the trapo and elite politics of the rich and powerful! The system that has ruined this nation for decades and cursed us into bankruptcy.”

“We call on all our worker and poor brothers and sisters to be vigilant and fight this callous act of the GMA administration and finally put a break on this decaying trapo and elite system. Likewise we call on our esteem brothers and sisters in the Armed Forces of this nation to side with the insurgent masses, and truly uphold their sworn duty to protect this country and its people from this rotten and bankrupt system – this trapo and elite system!” de Guzman adds.

“This multisectoral rally will not be the last, it is only the beginning. We will work tirelessly in fighting this treacherous act of the Lower House of Congress and the GMA administration. We will vigilantly fight for genuine change and an end to this decadent trapo system! Para sa Pagbabago, Rebolusyon hindi Cha-Cha!” de Guzman concludes. ###

MANILA, Philippines – Protesters wearing "prayer warrior" costumes gathered in front of Plaza Miranda Wednesday morning and, in satirical fashion, formally launched their shame campaign aimed at denouncing the more than 200 members of the House of Representatives who were proponents of the constituent assembly.

Led by comedian Tado who was dressed as Moses, members of militant groups BMP-Sanlakas- KPML and Partido Lakas ng Masa (PLM), performed before the crowd a symbolic litany and offered lighted Chinese prayer sticks to "drive away the evil spirits of the altar of traitors" which prominently displayed the faces of the members of the House of Representatives in a huge canvass.

In a satirical gimmick and protest, members of the BMP-Sanlakas-KPML and Partido Lakas ng Masa (PLM) gathered in front of Plaza Miranda formally launching its hounding shame campaign aimed at denouncing the more than 200 members of the House of Representatives who were proponents of the Constituent Assembly.

Clad in costumes as “Prayer Warriors” led by Tado, a celebrity comedian dressed as Moses symbolically performed before the crowd a litany of prayers and offered lighted Chinese sticks to drive away the evil spirits of the altar of traitors which prominently displayed the faces of the members of the House of Representatives in a huge canvass.

Mr. Teody Navea, BMP Secretary General, explained that their unique way of condemning these “traitors” is to hound them by doing the house to house shame campaign.“The ramming through of the House Resolution 1109 last June 2, 2009 is a classic tale of thieves at work in the middle of the night” Navea further averred.

BMP-Sanlakas-PLM and its allied organizations will be one of the major participants of the big rally today scheduled in the afternoon at Ayala Makati joining with some other groups and sectors. They will mobilize 5,000 contingents for this event.

The group earlier vowed to step up its campaign against the act of the lower house. As a kick off activity, they have stormed the house of Congressman Mat Defensor yesterday and successfully thrown rotten tomatoes at the doorstep.

The group's Hounding Shame campaign will become part of their sustained activity until the resumption of the session of the lower house in July. They call on the Filipino people to be vigilant and join hand in hand with other sectors of our society in stopping this callous act of the GMA administration and finally putting an end to the decaying and rotten trapo and elite system.

Press Statement

Labanan ang Con Ass!
Ibagsak ang Trapong Paghahari!

We, the workers and masses of this nation are appalled by the move of the GMA administration executed by their minions in the Lower Chamber of Congress last June 2, 2009, the ramming through of HR 1109, a resolution convening Congress as a Constituent Assembly to change the 1987 Constitution. It was a classic tale of thieves at work in the middle of the night. According to numerous sources, the crime was worth P20 million per representathieve!

What is more sickening is that this administration could afford to give payola to these representathieves in a period where thousands of workers are getting retrenched and the poor getting hungrier.

We believe that this crime against the Filipino people was executed for two main reasons. First, for this administration and its cohorts to cling unto power at all cost and continue ravaging our nation’s coffer. As if 9 years in power for GMA and her minions is not enough! For us it has been too much!!! And secondly, to continue along the now defunct and proven inutile neo-liberal path of economic growth, through the lifting of economic provisions in the constitution that restricts full foreign ownership of our lands, natural resources and corporations. An economic formula that is part and parcel with the export oriented, import dependent economic design. The same economic design that has made our nation so vulnerable to the impacts of the global crisis, which today impacts heavily on us, the workers and poor masses of this nation.

This act of the Lower House of Congress, supported by the GMA administration, should be condemned and fought in the highest degree.

Clearly, the Filipino workers and poor masses can no longer rely on the present system. There are talks that even the Supreme Court will decide and act favorably to the GMA administration. The whole system is rotten. The system that perpetuates this kind of politics – the trapo and elite politics of the rich and powerful! The system that has ruined this nation for decades and cursed us into bankruptcy.

Hence, we call on all our worker and poor brothers and sisters to go hand in hand with other sectors of our society in stopping this callous act of the GMA administration and finally put a break on this decaying trapo and elite system.

Likewise, we call on our brothers and sisters in the Armed Forces of the Philippines to uphold their sworn duty, above all, to protect our country and its people. We call on our beloved soldiers to go hand in hand with the workers and the poor masses in stopping Con Ass and in breaking this rotten system, the same system that has also plagued their ranks.

We have nothing to loose but the shackles that bind us from this rotten system. Labanan and Con Ass! Ibagsak ang Trapong Paghahari! ###

Workers Unite! Work Stoppage to Stop Cha-Cha!

PRESS RELEASE

Workers Unite!
Work Stoppage to Stop Cha-Cha!


Workers and the masses woke up today feeling uneasy, feeling something big has been stolen from them. Indeed something big has been stolen from them. At midnight last night, House Resolution 1109, a resolution to convene Congress as a Constituent Assembly to change the 1987 Constitution was rammed through. It was a classic tale of the thieves at work in the middle of the night – the majority thieves in the House of Congress.

Amidst call from almost all sectors of this nation, once again, the Congress of this nation showed its real color. Showed its blatant disregard of the wishes of people, instead implemented the much opposed wish of the GMA government to extend its term and cling unto power at all cost, and advance its economic interest – to plunder some more the nation’s coffer.

According to Leody de Guzman, President of Bukluran ng Manggagawang Pilipino (BMP), “We are disgusted of this move of the GMA administration, executed by their minions in the lower chamber of Congress. Everyone knows for a fact what their real intentions are – to extend their term of office, and continue their callous ravaging of the nation’s coffer. It comes in a period where thousand of workers are getting retrenched and the poor getting hungrier by the day.”

“But let us not forget, that, part of their intention to change the constitution is to open up further the nation’s economy through easing out constitutional restrictions, particularly giving full ownership to foreign entities, which according to them, could lure foreign investors in investing in the country. An economic formula that is part and parcel with the export oriented, import dependent economic design. The same economic design that has made our nation so vulnerable to the impacts of the global crisis, which today impacts heavily on the Filipino workers and the poor masses of this nation. An economic design hatched in hell by these thieves in the administration .” de Guzman chided.

“It is even more shameful that these thieves in Congress prioritized the passing of HR 1109, instead of passing the bill extending the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program. A bill that has been fought by farmers and peasants, along with its allies, for quite sometime. This is a clear manifestation of what their real intentions are.” de Guzman added.

“We say no to any moves to change the constitution under the present regime. What we need is an immediate reversal of all neo-liberal policies and programs of this nation. We need a systemic change and not charter change!” de Guzman demanded.

“This act of Congress, clearly supported by the GMA administration, should be condemned in the highest degree. We call on all the workers to go hand in hand with other sectors of our society in stopping this callous act of the administration. We call on all our fellow workers to protest and be vigilant. And if this administration will still pursue its intention, we will show the real strength of the working class. We will work to with other organized workers to call for a nationwide work stoppage to finally put a break on this callous act.”
