jennifer laude screen grabEven as Jennifer Laude’s family grieves, they are starting to fight for justice. Together with progressive groups, they trooped to the US warship where US Marine Pfc. Joseph Scott Pemberton is said to remain, in US custody. The killing of the Filipino transgender allegedly by Pemberton renews calls to junk the Visiting Forces Agreement, and other US-PH military agreements that protect US soldiers who commit crimes in Philippine soil.

Photos | Campaign for #Justice4Jennifer, #junkVFA gains momentum http://pinoyweekly.org/new/2014/10/photos-campaign-for-justice4jennifer-junkvfa-gain-momentum/ http://pinoyweekly.org/new/2014/10/photos-campaign-for-justice4jennifer-junkvfa-gain-momentum/#comments Fri, 17 Oct 2014 19:00:53 +0000 http://pinoyweekly.org/new/?p=31860 PW social icon Social and traditional media are abuzz with stories about protest actions and activities of groups from different sectors and even those abroad that call for justice for Jennifer Laude, a transgender woman murdered in an Olongapo City hotel last week.

Police said the main suspect is a US Marine, Private First Class Joseph Scott Pemberton, one of about 4,000 US soldiers who participated in joint military exercises of PH and US militaries more than a week ago. As of this writing, Pemberton is reportedly being held in an American amphibious ship, USS Peleliu, docked in Subic Bay port.

But US military authorities have so far not turned over the suspect to local police. Activist groups, including LGBT groups, have pressed the Aquino government to assert criminal jurisdiction over the suspect, including custody of Pemberton. They fear a reprise of the Subic rape case may happen — that is, the US government again may refuse custody of one of its soldiers suspected of committing a gruesome crime in the Philippines.

Laude’s case, the groups say, is only one of many that prove the lopsidedness of the PH-US Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA), as well as the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA), in favor of the US government.

Here are images of calls for justice for Jennifer Laude and junking of the VFA:

MGA LARAWAN | Pirma’t protesta kontra pork barrel sa Luneta at Mendiola http://pinoyweekly.org/new/2014/08/mga-larawan-pirmat-protesta-kontra-pork-barrel-sa-luneta-at-mendiola/ http://pinoyweekly.org/new/2014/08/mga-larawan-pirmat-protesta-kontra-pork-barrel-sa-luneta-at-mendiola/#comments Tue, 26 Aug 2014 15:44:58 +0000 http://pinoyweekly.org/new/?p=31180 Martsa para sa People's Initiative, gayund din para sa iba pang para panagutin ang kasalukuyang administrasyon dahil sa pagpapanatili ng sistema ng pork barrel. <strong>KR Guda</strong>

Martsa para sa People’s Initiative, gayund din para sa iba pang para panagutin ang kasalukuyang administrasyon dahil sa pagpapanatili ng sistema ng pork barrel. KR Guda

Umarangkada na ang pagpapapirma para sa People’s Initiative to Abolish the Pork Barrel System.

Matapos ang paglulunsad ng panukalang batas na ito sa pamamagitan ng People’s Congress sa Cebu City nitong Agosto 23, isang malaking pagtitipon ng di-bababa sa 20,000 katao naman ang isinagawa ng iba’t ibang grupong kontra-pork barrel sa Luneta Park, Manila para pasimulan ito sa Kamaynilaan.

Isinagawa ito nitong Agosto 25, bisperas ng unang anibersaryo ng makasaysayang Million People March sa Luneta, na malakihan ding protesta ng mga mamamayan kontra sa pork barrel system noong nakaraang taon.

Ngayong taon, lalong umigting ang panawagang wakasan ang sistema ng lump sum appropriations, o paglaan ng bilyun-bilyong piso na pondo na kontrol ng Presidente (sa kaso ng Disbursement Acceleration Program) o mga mambabatas (sa kaso ng Priority Development Assistance Program) matapos magdesisyon ang Korte Suprema na ibasura ang naturang gawain sa gobyerno.

“Matagumpay ang pagkilos ngayon. Malaking bilang pa rin ang nagpunta sa Luneta, nakiisa sa pagtitipon. Nakatutuwa dahil maraming grupo ang nagtulong-tulong. Maraming  sektor ang kumilos,” ayon kay Renato Reyes Jr, pangkalahatang kalihim ng Bagong Alyansang Makabayan, sa panayam ng Pinoy Weekly.

Sinabi pa ni Reyes na nangangailangan ng pagpapaigting ng kampanya kontra sa pork barrel dahil sa pagmamatigas ng Pangulo na panatilihin ito sa 2014 at 2015 badyet. Ayon sa impeachment complaints na isinampa sa Kamara noong Hulyo, direktang sinusuway ng Palasyo ang mga desisyon ng Korte Suprema at gumagawa pa ng mga hakbang para tapyasan ang kapangyarihan ng naturang nakatataas na korte.

“Sa paggunita natin sa Pambansang Araw ng mga Bayani at sa pag-alala kung paano pinunit ng mga Katipunero ang kanilang mag sedula at tumindig laban sa kolonyal na paghahari ng Espanya, pinupunit natin ngayon ang discretionary pork funds ni Aquino at nagsasabing hindi na muli kailanman (papayag) sa korupsiyon, at pang-aabuso ng kapangyarihan at diktadura,” ayon kay Gabriela Rep. Luzviminda Ilagan.

Administrasyong maka-pork

Kahit na ilang beses na sinabi ni Aquino na tinanggal na ng kanyang administrasyon ang pork barrel, minamantine pa rin ang sistemang ito ng administrasyong Aquino.

Ilang pinanghahawakang patunay nito, ayon sa mga tagapanguna ng People’s Initiative:

(1)  Nananatili ang lump-sum appropriations sa pambansang badyet noong 2014, na napatunayan mismo sa mga pahayag sa isang executive session ng ilang opisyal ng Ehekutibo–makikita ito sa isiniwalat na audio recordings ni ACT Teachers Rep. Antonio Tinio ng naturang sesyon;

(2) May lump-sum appropriations pa rin sa panukalang pambansang badyet sa susunod na taon na nagkakahalagang P501.6-Bilyon;

(3) Sa pamamagitan ng pagbago sa depinisyon ng “savings” sa 2015 badyet, gustong iwasan ng Department of Budget and Management (DBM) ang desisyon ng Korte Suprema noong Hulyo 1 sa desisyong 13-0 na nagdedeklarang di-sang-ayon sa Saligang Batas ang Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) na malinaw na isang mas malaking porma ng pork barrel;

(2) Mula Hulyo 14 hanggang sa State of the Nation Address ng Pangulo noong Hulyo 28, todo-depensa siya sa DAP.

“Malinaw na mayroon pa ring pork. Nagmamaang-maangan lang ang gobyerno sa pagsasabi nilang wala. Kailangan talaga nila ng pork kasi ‘yan ang magpapatakbo sa Cha-Cha (Charter-Change). ‘Yan ang ipambabayad nila sa mga congressman. Kaya bantayan natin ‘yan. Hindi talaga magkahiwalay ang Cha-Cha at pork,” ayon kay Reyes.

People’s Initiative

Isa ang People’s Initiative sa mga iniluwal na kampanya ng Million People March na naglalayong makakalap ng anim hanggang 10 milyong prima mula sa mga botante para maipasa ang isang batas na magtatanggal sa lahat ng porma ng pork barrel.

“Exactly one year ago, we held the ‘Million People March against the pork barrel’ in Luneta to demand accountability and an end to the pork barrel system. Today, we level up the fight by calling on six million voters to approve a law to prohibit pork barrel funds in the national budget and require line item budgeting for public funds,” ayon kay Monet Silvestre, isa sa mga organisador ng MPM noong nakaraang taon at isang lider ng #AbolishPork Movement.

Nagpahayag ng suporta ang iba’t ibang grupo para dito na nagpapakita umano kung gaano kalawak na mga mamamayan ang naghahangad ng pagbabago.

“Sa pamamagitan ng pakikiisa ng mga mamamayan, simbahan, at iba pang grupo, maipapakita natin sa administrasyong Aquino kung ano ang tunay na nais ng sambayanan. Ang pag-abot sa kinakailangang bilang ng lagda ay malaking gawain, pero ang mga kabataan at ang mamamayan ay nakahanda para rito,” ani Kabataan Rep. Terry Ridon.

Hinamon naman nina Bayan Muna Rep. Neri Colmenares at Carlos Zarate si Aquino at mga kaalyado niya na pumirma sa People’s Initiative laban sa sistema ng pork barrel kung tunay na tutol sila sa pork barrel.

“Laging sinasabi ng Pangulo (Aquino) at mga kaalyado niya na wala nang pork barrel funds sa 2015 budget. (P)ero iba ang alam natin, dahil mayroong malalaking lump sums sa badyet na wala nang iba pa kundi pork. Nakay Aquino ang pinakamalaking pork barrel sa kasalukuyang badyet at maging sa panukalang badyet para sa 2015. Kung talagang tutol si Pangulong Aquino sa pork barrel, dapat siyang pumirma sa People’s Initiative at iwasan ang lahat ng pork mula sa DAP, PDAF at iba pang porma nito,” ayon kay Colmenares.

PHOTOS | #UPBonfire again, this time to press for justice for disappeared UP students, other Palparan victims http://pinoyweekly.org/new/2014/08/photos-upbonfire-again-this-time-to-press-for-justice-for-disappeared-up-students-other-palparan-victims/ http://pinoyweekly.org/new/2014/08/photos-upbonfire-again-this-time-to-press-for-justice-for-disappeared-up-students-other-palparan-victims/#comments Tue, 12 Aug 2014 17:14:47 +0000 http://pinoyweekly.org/new/?p=30940 Before noon, there were already calls for a bonfire in University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City. This time, though, it was a call for an indignation gathering in Sunken Garden in the Diliman campus in the evening of the day that authorities arrested fugitive general Jovito Palparan Jr. in Sta. Mesa, Manila.

It was a few days removed from the first bonfire event in Sunken Garden–to celebrate the school’s first basketball win in a popular collegiate tournament. This time, however, the UP Diliman administration did not give permission to the activists’ call for a gathering, saying that the event would be a “partisan one”. The teachers’ group, Congress of Teachers/Educators for Nationalism and Democracy (Contend) in UP asserted that even the chancellor’s refusal to allow such gathering would be a partisan decision–and continued on with the event.

Palparan had been in hiding for almost three years; he was wanted for the enforced disappearances of UP students Sherlyn Cadapan and Karen Empeno. Both students were allegedly abducted by Palparan’s men in Hagonoy, Bulacan in June 26, 2006 while volunteering for a peasant organization. Even before the abduction, however, Palparan was already notorious as a brutal army commander in provinces where he was assigned, but especially in Southern Tagalog, Eastern Visayas, Ilocos Region, Mindanao and Central Luzon.
