Militants showcased real “People’s Meal “at Plaza Miranda

In an apparent bid to show their disgust to the GMA administration, members of the militant Bukluran ng Manggagawang Pilipino (BMP) and Kongreso ng Pagkakaisa ng Maralitang Lungsod (KPML) under the umbrella Political Party Partido Lakas ng Masa (PLM) held a simple dramatization of a real people’s meal at the Plaza Miranda, Quiapo, Manila.

The group’s action is an attempt to show off to the government the irony of having a sumptuous and lavish dinner while its own people is wallowing on deep economic crises and in a quagmire of unprecedented poverty and helplessness.

Serving noodles and dried fish with rice touted as the ordinary meal of every Filipino, Sonny Melencio, Chairperson of the Partido Lakas ng Masa argued that “The 1M worth dinner of GMA and her entourage would mean over 11,000 Filipinos being benefitted for a day’s 3 square meals.”

“If 1M worth of noodles would be served, over 153,000 Filipinos would be benefitted, a far cry from the few elite Filipinos who lavishly spent dinner at Le Cirque in New York.” Melencio further elaborated.

The group lambasted the government’s insensitivity of the plight of the poor Filipinos. They cited the real situation confronting the nation like unemployment, unabated rising costs of oil prices and basic commodities and the effects of the global financial crisis resulting to job losses and company closures.

Meanwhile, Mr. Leody De Guzman, BMP Chairperson who spoke before the crowd articulated that “It is immaterial for the government to reason out that the money they spent was not taken from the people’s money but from its Congressman benefactor, what is lamentable is their nerve to do the act while its own people is suffering from hunger.”

“What GMA and her entourage have done is immoral and in effect overwhelming outrageous.” De Guzman concluded. ###
