Kabataang Montreal's Statement on Arroyo's Proclamation 1017

Militanteng pagbati sa iyong lahat!

KABABAYANS! KAPWA KABATAAN! KAPATID AT KAIBIGAN!

Kabataang Montreal is outraged by the state of
national emergancy in the Philippines proclaimed by
the illegitimate, U.S. puppet, corrupt, rotten and now
openly facist president Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and
her crooked regime.

We, the Filipino youth of Montreal fully and highly
condemn Arroyo's proclamation 1017. Not only does this
desparate act by the fake president blatantly attack
and curtail the civil liberties and political rights
of the Filipino people, it dares to subject the people
to yet another facist dictatorship after the people
have attested 20 years ago, never again to martial
law.

And we say today the same as we did then, NEVER AGAIN
TO MARTIAL LAW!

Not only is Arroyo attempting to mimick the facist
Marcos dictatorship, she already surpassed the
magnitude of Marcos' facist acts.

Countless human rights violations such as, systematic killings
of activist and leaders of the anti-Arroyo protest
movement, including mass organizers, church leaders,
women and youth. Further oppression of the Filipino
people with antinational, anti-democratic and
anti-people policies keeping the people in poverty,
hunger and hardship.

Policies that send many Filipinos out of the
Philippines to work and live in Canada and all over
the world to face futher hardships and separation from
loved ones back home. Using the billions and billions
of dollars in remittances, the hard earned money that Filipinos working abroad send back home to
their loved ones, to use for their own selfish gains.

These are some of the attrocities of the much hated
Arroyo regime during her time in power. Filipinos have been affected even all the
way here in Canada. The Arroyo regime is able to disrupt our lives by disrupting the livelihoods of our families, our and all the people in the Philippines who now face these attrocities.

Arroyo is a threat to genuine freedom and democracy in the Philippines and we cannot allow her to continue her destructive rule.

We join with all Filipino people and all who are for a just and lasting peace in the Philippines in calling for the ouster of the unjust Arroyo regime !

OUST THE ILLIGITIMATE, PUPPET, CORRUPT, ROTTEN AND
FACIST ARROYO REGIME NOW!

NEVER AGAIN TO MARTIAL LAW!

GLORIA TUTA DICTADOR PACISTA!

Gloria's PP 1017 reminds me of the fall guy named Secretary Norberto Gonzalez.

--An executive officer over whom the President "shall have control of" (or the Executive Power of "Control," as in EO 464)
--Ordered arrested by the Senate, the institution authorized merely to inquire "in aid of legislation" but acting as the constitutional "investigator," the Ombudsman, and, simultaneously, as the Court, exercising, in short, "concentrated power."
--Publicly maligned, insulted, humiliated
--Arrested "warrantless"
--Being under "Protective Custody" was not an option made available to him
--Detained indefinitely (for well over a month, or over 720 hours, in excess of the 36 hours legally allowed)
--Sneered at for seeking medical attention that incarceration without charges naturally magnify
--Accusation proved his guilt, and his denial or refusal doubled it
--Deprived of his liberty without benefit of due process of law
--Punished before he is guilty for fear that he should be guilty
--A Filipino citizen, entitled (presumably) to the protection of the Republic

Sadly, during all this time of horror, the avowed champions of freedom and democracy among many in the media and the opposition simply looked the other way—Gonzalez was their perceived "enemy"--condoning the humiliation, the deprivation the fall guy endured.

So, why make a fuss over the "warrantless," the "arbitrary," the "dictatorial" repercussions under Gloria's PP1017 now?

"He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself." --Thomas Paine
