We condemn Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales and the Noynoy Aquino government for clearing Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in relation to the P728-M fertilizer fund scam. We are revolted by the fact that this is the fourth time that a plunder case against Arroyo has been dismissed by the Ombudsman.
Members of the Kilusang Mayo Uno joined protests against the Electric Power Industry Reform Act or Republic Act 9136 in Mendiola this morning, saying the law legalized plunder in allowing power corporations to rake in profits at the expense of poor Filipinos.
We in labor center Kilusang Mayo Uno are glad that the Antipolo Regional Trial Court Branch 98 has issued warrants of arrest against the 13 suspects in the torture and murder of our leader Rolando Olalia and his aide Leonor Alay-ay more than 25 years ago. We will push for the prosecution and jailing of those responsible for the torture and death of our comrades.
