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.

Press Release


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! ###
