Resist the US imperialist charter change scheme

In collusion with the puppet officials of the Aquino government, US imperialism is now vigorously pushing for the amendment of the 1987 Philippine constitution. In another case of brazen US intervention in the country's internal affairs, the US is campaigning for the removal of provisions in the constitution that prohibit foreign corporations from having majority control over companies operating in the Philippines.

Mamamayang Albayanos, sumisigaw ng hustisya dahil sa nagpapatuloy na abusong militar dulot ng Community Peace and Development Operation Team ng AFP

Mariing kinukundena ng SBC–BHB Albay ang walang habas na panghahalimaw sa mamamayang Albayanos ng 2nd IB, PA, sa pamumuno ni Lt. Col. John V. Oberio at ni Col. Arthur P. Ang, CO ng 901st Brigade.

Hindi na kinakayang itago ng pagpapanggap na “kapayapaan at kaunlaran” ang hatid ng Oplan Bayanihan ni Aquino. Pilit na pinagtatakpan ng mga upisyal militar sa paglulubid ng kasinungalingan, ang karahasan at pagyurak sa karapatang pantao dulot ng inilulunsad nilang Community Peace and Development Operation Team (CPDT) o dating SOT. Sa loob lamang ng isang buwan, umabot na sa mahigit 60 katao ang naging biktima ng iba’t ibang porma ng paglabag sa karapatang-pantao sa 11 barangay ng Guinobatan na nilulunsaran ng CPDT.

NDFP Negotiating Panel

Atty. Alexander Padilla, Chairperson of the Negotiating Panel of the Government of the Philippines (GPH), is foolish in hurling false and vicious accusations against the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP).

The Joint Statements signed in January and February 2011 in Oslo, Norway, between the GPH and the NDFP, clearly stipulate that the GPH shall release most or all of the 17 NDFP personnel protected under the Joint Agreement on Safety and Immunity Guarantees (JASIG), before the second round of formal talks in June 2011. It is now August 2011 and there are still 13 JASIG-protected individuals in prison.

GPH is accountable for putting to risk the safety of NPA captives by launching full-scale military offensives

Not only is Alex Padilla lost in a daydream, he also wants to obfuscate the revolutionary movement’s record of handling prisoners of war and those accused and held under its own legal and judicial system. In the process, he is endangering the lives of the GPH members because of military offensives in the region.

This was the contention of Rubi del Mundo, spokesperson for the National Democratic Front-Southern Mindanao, in reaction to the recent pronouncement of the GPH peace panel chief who called it a “blackmail” and “bad precedence” to negotiate for the release of the four PNP/BJMP personnel prisoners of war and arrested GPH Mayor Henry Dano and two military intelligence escorts.

The NPA's Magtanggol Roque Command-Guerilla Front 51 Operations Command in Southern Mindanao ambushed a platoon of enemy troops under the 57th Infantry Battalion-Philippine Army-AFP, killing four of the troops including an Army sergeant last August 16, 11:00 AM in Sitio Malumpine, Barangay Old Balatukan in Makilala town, North Cotabato. No casualties were reported on the side of the Red fighters.

The enemy troops were conducting combat operations related to the four BJMP/PNP prisoners of war when hit by the Red fighters. These operations went full-scale since the taking of the four POWs last July 21 at the Davao-Bukidnon national highway. Despite the assurance of the NPA custodial unit, the Herminio Alfonso Command-Guerilla Front 53 Operations Command, that the rights of the four prisoners of war (POWs) were fully respected; and their safety and welfare fully ensured, the AFP continues to endanger their lives with these combat operations in the boundaries of Davao, Bukidnon and North Cotabato.

Batay sa nakuhang mga impormasyon, sinunog nila ang ditatsment dahil sa pagkagalit sa mga abusong militar at paglalagay sa peligro sa seguridad ng mga mamamayan na idinudulot ng ditatsment nila sa bukana ng poblacion.

Labanan ang pakanang charter change ng imperyalismong US!

Kasabwat ng mga papet na upisyal ng gubyernong Aquino, puspusang itinutulak ngayon ng imperyalismong US ang charter change (“cha-cha”) o pagbabago ng konstitusyong 1987 ng Pilipinas. Lantarang nanghihimasok ang US sa panloob na usapin ng bansa sa tahasang paggigiit nito na alisin ang mga probisyon sa konstitusyon na nagbabawal sa mga dayuhang korporasyon na magkaroon ng mayoryang kontrol sa mga kumpanyang may operasyon sa Pilipinas.

Dapat mahigpit na tutulan ng mamamayang Pilipino ang maniobrang ito ng imperyalismong US. Lalo lamang itong yuyurak sa kasarinlang pang-ekonomya ng Pilipinas na nilapastangan nitong nakaraang 25 taon ng mga patakaran ng liberalisasyon, deregulasyon, pribatisasyon at denasyunalisasyon. Ang itinutulak na cha-cha ng US ay magreresulta sa ganap na pang-ekonomyang rekolonisasyon ng Pilipinas at magbubulid dito sa lalong malalalim na krisis.
