The Philippine Peasant Support Network (Pesante)-USA is happy to express our greetings of solidarity for the people of Thailand especially to the Thai-Americans who lived in ThaiTown in Los Angeles for their victory in forcing Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra out of office. The people of Thailand did not let up their protest and boycotted the elections that Thaksin maneuvered to save his political career.
Thaksin of Thailand is Out, The Taksil (Traitor) in Malacañang is Next – Pesante-USA
Los Angeles, California – The Philippine Peasant Support Network (Pesante)-USA is happy to express our greetings of solidarity for the people of Thailand especially to the Thai-Americans who lived in ThaiTown in Los Angeles for their victory in forcing Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra out of office. The people of Thailand did not let up their protest and boycotted the elections that Thaksin maneuvered to save his political career.
Thaksin Shinawatra still had some delicadeza or a sense of honor left in him when he announced his resignation. Thaksin is so much unlike the Philippine president who cannot even stand by her word. Arroyo is now saying she will not serve as president beyond 2010; she is really very callous. But who will believe her? She even derided her critics as “crazy” and uses brute force to silence her critics.
But Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is eventually going Thaksin’s way. Absolute power corrupts. And as in the case of Gloria, wanting absolute power corrupts her absolutely.
Now that her subalterns in the House of Representatives have passed the so-called Anti-Terrorism Bill that ensures her absolute rule, the Filipinos must brace themselves for more fascist crackdowns and an all-out suppression of their democratic rights.
For Pesante-USA we, Filipinos in the United States, inspired by the people power in Thailand, welcomes the new initiative by the Philippine Senate which launched the “Gloria Resign Movement” during the president’s birthday yesterday, April 5.
Malacanang and GMA’s apologist are quick to point out that the Philippines is different from Thailand. Yes, Thailand has18 coup in a span of 50 years but Thailand has preceded the Philippines in utilizing People’s Power in overthrowing the military junta and fighting for democracy even at the cost of hundreds of students and youth killed in military massacres.
Thailand and the Philippines have one common unity. It is overthrowing dictators and fighting for democracy and freedom.
Thaksin of Thailand is a goner, but the Taksil (Traitor) in Malacañang is still clinging to power and has dug in. During the 1965 elections, Diosdado Macapagal’s name became a campaign slogan of then Ferdinand Marcos – Macapagal means “to be tiring” (From the Tagalog word – Maka (to be) and Pagal (weakened or tired). In Spanish – Arroyo is a small creek. Arroyo is no match for the larger sea of the discontented masses. She is just a creek that will be flowing to the ocean of discontent.
Truly, Gloria is tiring the Filipinos but we will never be tired of building the people’s movement to remove her from the position that she never deserved but which she is now using to perpetuate herself in power indefinitely. #
