northgate protest sonaNakalapit sa North Gate ng Batasang Pambansa ang mga maralita na umahon mula sa kanilang komunidad para iprotesta ang ika-5 State of the Nation Address (SONA) ni Pangulong Aquino. Anila, lalong naghirap ang buhay sa ilalim ng kanyang administrasyon.

Sinalubong nila ang mga progresibong mambabatas na nag-walkout bago mag-umpisa ang SONA, at nagsusulong ng impeachment ni Aquino.

PHOTOS | #SONAngBayan calls for Aquino ouster http://pinoyweekly.org/new/2014/07/photos-sonangbayan-calls-for-aquino-ouster/ http://pinoyweekly.org/new/2014/07/photos-sonangbayan-calls-for-aquino-ouster/#comments Mon, 28 Jul 2014 07:00:08 +0000 http://pinoyweekly.org/new/?p=30640 The protest, of about 30,000 people, was, as expected, a colorful one. But following last years violent attempt by cops to disperse protesters asserting right to get near Batasan Pambansa during #SONA2013, this year’s march evoked an air of urgency: they now call on the immediate ouster of Pres. Benigno Aquino III from office. This, following a series of expositions on the involvement of congresspeople, senators, cabinet officials and close Palace allies in the pork barrel scam, purportedly masterminded by Janet Lim-Napoles.

But the biggest scandal involved the president himself, to the tune of P177 Billion in the unconstitutional Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP). Almost a month after the Supreme Court declared unconstitutional that which has been called the president’s own pork barrel in DAP, three impeachment complaints are now pending in Congress–two for culpably violating the Constitution via DAP and one for signing the equally questionable PH-US Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement. The president now faces political isolation for his misdeeds. The protests, meanwhile, are expected to only intensify–and become more, much more, colorful.

Meanwhile, inside the heavily secured Batasan Pambansa, President Aquino gives a SONA speech with a touch of drama, choking up at one point, as he again puts up a spirited defense of his administration’s achievements, thanks, he said, in no small part to his presidential pork barrel, the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP). Here are some of Pher Pasion’s photos:

In Commonwealth Avenue, the protesters began to march a few meters towards the police barricades. The police had barricaded the entire lane with concrete and steel barriers, container vans and razor-sharp concertina wires. Boxed in and virtually imprisoned in the entire lane, the protesters asserted their right to protest by marching hearer the police, who responded by using water cannons on them–but failed to stop them. The protesters then held a brief program near the police blockade before peacefully dispersing.

pnoy-sona-2014Tunghayan ang live updates ng Pinoy Weekly tungkol sa mga protesta sa State of the Nation Address (SONA) ni Pang. Benigno Aquino III. Magsisimula: Alas-11 ng umaga.

Inaantabayanan ng publiko kapwa ang talumpati ni Aquino at ang maiinit na protesta kontra rito matapos ang pagdeklara ng Korte Suprema na labag sa Saligang Batas ang Disbursement Acceleration Program,  o ang presidential pork barrel ng Malakanyang, at ang pagsampa ng tatlong impeachment complaints laban sa Pangulo. Sinabi na ng Pangulo na naghahanda siyang kontrahin ang naturang desisyon ng korte. Samantala, inihahapag ng iba’t ibang grupo sa kalsada ang maraming isyu kontra sa administrasyon: mula sa kawalan ng tunay na repormang agraryo, pagpapatupad ng neoliberal na mga polisiyang nagpapahirap sa mga mamamayan, hanggang sa kawalan ng respeto sa karapatang pantao, kawalan ng tunay na kapayapaan, at laganap pa ring korupisyon at katiwalian sa gobyerno.

Idineklara ng gobyerno ang pagtalaga ng libu-libong pulis at daan-daang sundalo sa paligid ng Batasan Pambansa. Samantala, desidido ang mga mamamayan na kasama sa protesta: Ihahapag nila ang kanilang mga hinaing, at irerehistro ang panawagang magbitiw na sa puwesto si Pangulong Aquino.

Bakit ka sumama sa protesta sa SONA?

Sa ilalim ng Disbursement Acceleration Program, P450 Milyon ang ibinayad ng gobyernong Aquino sa pamilya Cojuangco-Aquino para sa kompensasyon sa Hacienda Luisita. Isa ito sa mga dahilan kung bakit sasama ang magsasakang si Rey Garcia sa protesta sa ika-5 State of the Nation Address ni Benigno Aquino III.

INFOGRAPHIC | Worsening contractualization in gov’t alarms state workers http://pinoyweekly.org/new/2014/07/infographic-worsening-contractualization-in-govt-alarms-state-workers/ http://pinoyweekly.org/new/2014/07/infographic-worsening-contractualization-in-govt-alarms-state-workers/#comments Sat, 26 Jul 2014 11:26:25 +0000 http://pinoyweekly.org/new/?p=30595 Union leaders from different national government agencies have called on an end to contractualization and regularization of all contractual workers, in a forum at the National Housing Authority recently. <strong>KR Guda</strong>

Union leaders from different national government agencies have called on an end to contractualization and regularization of all contractual workers, in a forum at the National Housing Authority recently. KR Guda

An alarming pattern has surfaced in government agencies in recent years, as far as state workers are concerned: regular employment in government offices is increasingly being replaced with contractual work.

The practice of labor contractualization — employing workers on a contractual basis, without security of tenure and benefits as well as right to unionize — has been the bane to private-sector workers worldwide, and is considered a direct attack on workers rights. As a neoliberal policy imposed on developing countries by international financial institutions like the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, labor contractualization allows for monopoly capitalists to extract further profits from workers while pressing down their wages and curtailing their rights. But increasely, this anti-worker practice is now being done in government–the very same institution that should be protecting workers’ rights.

The Confederation for Unity, Recognition, and Advancement of Government Employees (Courage), a national center of government employees in the Philippines, is now sounding the alarm on creeping contractualization in government.

“In the government, they call these employees as contractuals, job orders (JO), Contract of Service employees, Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) employees, Talents, project-based (employees), etc. But unlike in the private sector where ‘endo’ or end of contract is common to mean five or six months employment contracts, in government we call it end of time–contractual for a number of years depending on the whims and discretions of the heads of the agencies,” explained Ferdinand Gaite, national president of Courage.

The group recently launched its campaign to ban contractualization, and pushes hard to make contractuals in various government agencies as regular.

payatas guardsLabing-apat na taon makaraan ang Payatas Tragedy na kumitil sa buhay ng 300 katao, patuloy na nananawagan ang mga pamilya at maralitang residente ng Payatas ng hustisya, trabaho, at pagtigil sa demolisyon. Iginigiit nilang dapat ipasara na ang tambakan, sa halip na palayasin sila, mga residenteng binigyan ng lote doon noong dekada ’80. Sa ilalim ng gobyernong BS Aquino, napapako pa rin umano ang mga pangako ng gobyerno sa tinaguriang “Lupang Pangako.”

DAP infographic(2)

UPDATE (1 July 2014): The Supreme Court has declared parts (albeit most important ones) of President Aquino’s memoranda and other declarations regarding Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) as unconstitutional. Months before the decision came out, several lawmakers, organizations and constitutional experts have already expressed their opinion on DAP’s unconstitutionality. Worse, this lump-sum fund, taken from “savings” of many government agencies, has supposedly been used as “bribe” for senators who voted to remove impeached Chief Justice Renato Corona in 2012. And due to its nature as a “presidential pork”, DAP is prone to corruption as any pork barrel fund.

Si Pio Emmanuel Mijares (naka-pula) sa Naga City, matapos makapagpiyansa, Hunyo 13. Kontribusyon/Vince Casilihan

Nitong Hunyo 12, ipinakita ng rehimen kung papaano nito ipinagdiriwang ang Araw ng Kalayaan: sa pamamagitan ng pagkumpiska ng simbolikong mga baril ng mga Katipunerong nagsasagawa ng street play malapit sa embahada ng Amerika. Sa parehong umagang iyon, inaresto ng Presidential Security Group ng Pangulo ang isang estudyante, ang 19-anyos na si Pio Emmanuel Mijares ng Ateneo de Naga University, matapos sumigaw siya ng “Walang pagbabago, sa ilalim ni Aquino!”, “Aquino, patalsikin!” at iba pang islogan na dapat sanang hinahayaang iparinig sa Pangulo sa isang malaya at demokratikong lipunan.

Ito naman kasi ang mismong mensahe ng mga nagprotesta, na pinangunahan ng Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (Bayan) malapit sa embahada ng US sa umaga, at malawak na alyansang kontra-pork barrel na #AbolishPork Barrel Movement sa hapon: Hindi tunay na malaya ang bayan na pinangingibabawan ng isang dayuhang (at imperyalistang) bansa sa pulitika at ekonomiya, at pinamumunuan ng isang gobyerno na nagkukunsinti ng malawakang pangungurakot sa porma ng sistemang pork barrel.

Ipinagkita ng dalawang pagkilos ang direktang pagkakaugnay ng dalawang problema, ng imperyalismo at ng sinasabi nitong burukrata-kapitalismo. Malawak ang hanay ng mga lumalaban sa pork barrel; kahit mga alyado ng Pangulo at mismong si Aquino, nagsasabing kontra sila sa pork barrel (kahit pinananatili ang sistemang ito sa ilalim ng 2014 Badyet at sa pagpapanatili ng Disbursement Acceleration Program o DAP na kontrol mismo ni Aquino). Pero sa mga progresibong lumahok (aabot ng halos 10,000, sa tantiya ng marami) sa protesta noong umaga at hapon, hindi magkahiwalay ito. May nangingibabaw na dayuhang interes, na siya namang nagkukunsinti sa mga katiwalian ng lokal na elite para patuloy na mapasunod ito. Samantala, matindi pa rin ang monopolyo sa lupa ng lokal na mga elite, at di pa rin malaya ang mayoryang magsasaka na pagyamanin ang lupa.

Iyan, sa maikling salita, ang Pilipinas. Iyan, sa maikling salita, ang kawalan ng kalayaan, mula 1898 hanggang sa kasalukuyan.
