Stp the Betrayal of the People's Will! No to Con-Ass!

Below is the official statement of the Global Call to Action Against Poverty (GCAP) on the current Con-Ass issue in the Philippines:

STOP THE BETRAYAL OF THE PEOPLE’S WILL! NO TO CON-ASS!


Poverty is an issue of governance. The people choose the kind of government they want and need.. The people elect the officers who would ensure the rule of law is observed and that the interest of the greatest good is upheld. The government should make sure poverty is an exception rather than the rule in any decent humane society.

It is in this context that the GLOBAL CALL TO ACTION AGAINST POVERTY (GCAP-Philippines) joins the rest of the Filipino people in condemning House Resolution 1109, an attempt to shortcut the process of Charter Change.

It is the height of hypocrisy and conceit that the House of Representatives (“representa-thieves?”) defer the deliberation on Agrarian Reform but had the time to pass HR 1109. The objective is obvious, and it smacks of betrayal of the will of the Filipino people.

Beyond the issue of lifting the term limit of elected officials, GCAP –Philippines is also wary of how these “honorable men and women” will tamper the economic provisions of the Constitution to allow foreign ownership and control of the economy in what could be a complete sell-out of the Philippine patrimony.

Amendment to the Constitution cannot and should NOT be done in haste, especially not to serve the political ambition of the sitting president.. Charter amendment should reflect the sovereign will of the people.

The Arroyo government has robbed the people in more ways than one. Let us not allow another machination to trample again our national and collective dignity.

No to CON-ASS!

No to Gloria’s CHA-CHA!

END POVERTY NOW BEFORE SERVING YOUR POLITICAL AMBITIONS!
