RIGHT TO WORK
“How many deaths must we endure / Before the President will stop dreaming / And start listening to his people?” | The popular cliché of President Aquino : “Ang Matuwid Na Daan” must not start and end with the slogan. On the 100th day after he won by a landslide, the Filipino nation has yet to see how this winning slogan will be converted into realization. Instead of being a champion to the cause of the masses who put their trust to him last May 2010 election, series of incidents put our country into quagmire of poverty and shame. The President and his cabinets who really wanted to project themselves as a dream team are indeed a dream team. A team whose only function is to dream.

Benigno S. Aquino, III negative one (-1) today on his 100 days in office. According to KMU Negros, Pres. Aquino had not pushed significant reforms especially on the issue of prosecution of former President Arroyo, worsening human rights violations and in giving economic relief to the poor especially to the workers and peasants.
Peasant human rights group Tanggol Magsasaka (Peasant Network for Land, Justice and Human Rights) and Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas (KMP) lambasted the government of President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III and his barbaric soldiers on the killings of another two peasants last September 19, 2010 in Bundok Matutit, boundary of Bulacan and Montalban, Rizal.

By Arnold Padilla - (See the short video on Sitio San Roque’s demolition produced by multimedia production group Kodao Productions by following this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvQchQ7EOBo) While late because a temporary restraining order (TRO) has already been issued yesterday (Sep. 23) by a local trial court, Pres. Aquino’s order to suspend the forced relocation of residents of an urban poor community in North Triangle must be welcomed if only for the temporary respite it brings. But the issue is far from settled since the suspension simply intends to allow the “orderly” demolition of the remaining shanties.
