Some 300 workers and poor led by the militant Partido ng Manggagawa (PM) will stage a picket at the Batasang Pambansa this afternoon in protest at the passage of Resolution 1109 providing for convening Congress as a constituent assembly. “Con-ass is the illegitimate first born child of the Lakas-Kampi marriage that was officiated by GMA herself. It is a GMA-PALAKA scandal that is worse than the Hayden-Katrina sex video,” insisted Renato Magtubo, PM chairperson.
The protesters from PM brought placards that read: “Con-Ass: Illegitimate Child of Lakas-Kampi Marriage,” “Con-Ass: GMA-PALAKA Scandal,” and “Con-Ass: 1st scandalous act of GMA’s PALAKA.”
Magtubo argued that “Revising the Constitution will pave the way not just for GMA’s perpetuation in power but also the annihilation of the token protection for labor rights and national patrimony. Chacha will benefit Gloria, the trapos and foreigners.”
“The P20 million bribe for chacha’s passage worked its miracle to ensure a quorum and make Judases of the trapos in Congress. Instead of responding to the challenge of worsening poverty and unemployment, Congress railroaded the con-ass for the purpose of extending GMA’s term. The first crucial step has been taken on the road to GMA return to power as Prime Minister,” Magtubo added.
