Multitudes of actions, agenda challenged
by various sectors greeted P-Noy SONA

As early as 7am to 10am, various sectors converged in various points as a prelude to P-Noy SONA in the afternoon. Thousands of urban poor belonging to Kongreso ng Pagkakaisa ng Maralitang Lungsod (KPML) and allied organizations trooped in front of NHA along elliptical road and delegations to the house of P-Noy at times street in Quezon City. In the same mode, workers belonging to the Bukluran ng Manggagawang Pilipino (BMP) prominently displayed their slogans and streamers along Philcoa leading to Commonwealth avenue.

These groups later joined the converging point of the multisectoral group Sanlakas and its allied organizations in front of the office of Commission on Human Rights along Commonwealth Avenue at around 11am. The groups were also joined by other sectors and organizations to which their number swelled to thousands. They were carrying dialogue cum slogans imprinted in their placards as a way of ventilating their issues and agenda to the 1st SONA of the P-noy administration. A short program was held and around past 12:00 noon, the group marched to Tandang Sora where a huge contingent of Freedom from Debt Coalition (FDC), Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates (PAHRA), KONTRA (Koalisyon Kontra Kontraktwalisasyon) members converged. At around 1:00 pm, the rallyists pursued marching down to Ever Gotesco but were joined by members of KAMP, a multisectoral alliance along the stretch of Pure Gold in Commonwealth.

The Sanlakas bloc presented a 10 pt. agenda where they articulated that these issues were the embodiment of the program to compliment Noynoy’s assertion of serving to his Boss, the Filipino people.

“P-Noy should pursue a program that would essentially address the issue of poverty and joblessness. If he is sincere in solving these concrete problems he must not use the former administration as a scapegoat but instead come up with a real solution to alleviate people’s misery. He has to touch the debt servicing issue in order to find ways for more funds for his pro-poor programs and services. He has to enhance the domestic economy to ensure jobs for the Filipinos. If he can do this, then he is not another Gloria in the making whose regime was attributed with politicking, corruption and heavy taxation.” Leody De Guzman, BMP President elaborated in an interview.
