The Alliance for a Just and Lasting Peace (AJLPP) –USA expresses its militant support and solidarity with the Filipino people's protest in Manila against the US-Arroyo regime, the COMELEC, cheating and violence during the last Philippine elections. This comes as Phillippine media reported that thousands braved strong rains and rallied yesterday near the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC), where the national canvassing of votes is being held, to protest what was described as "the Arroyo administration's orchestrated cheating" in the recently-concluded senatorial and local elections.

AJLPP SUPPORTS FILIPINOS PROTESTS POLL FRAUDS IN MANILA

New York --The Alliance for a Just and Lasting Peace (AJLPP) –USA expresses its militant support and solidarity with the Filipino people's protest in Manila against the US-Arroyo regime, the COMELEC, cheating and violence during the last Philippine elections.

This comes as Phillippine media reported that thousands braved strong rains and rallied yesterday near the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC), where the national canvassing of votes is being held, to protest what was described as "the Arroyo administration's orchestrated cheating" in the recently-concluded senatorial and local elections.

The internet news agency BULATLAT reported that “ present at the rally were conveners of the poll watch group Kontra Daya (Anti-Fraud) -- former Vice President Teofisto Guingona, Jr., Fr. Joe Dizon, National Artist for Literature Bienvenido Lumbera, film director Carlitos Siguion Reyna, and former Transportation and Communication Secretary Josie Lichauco; as well as members of the Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (Bayan or New Patriotic Alliance), Boses ng Masa (The Masses' Voice), Laban ng Masa (The Masses' Fight), the Black and White Movement, the United Opposition (UNO), the National Coordinating Council of Volunteers (NCCV), the Be Not Afraid Movement, and the Trillanes for Senator Movement.”

AJLPP also express indignation over the fact that in Maguindanao, where early returns show the province delivering a 12-0 victory for the administration coalition Team Unity. AJLPP is concerned that a number of teachers in the said province have reported, under the cloak of anonymity, that they were forced by soldiers at gunpoint to fill up ballots with the names of Team Unity senatorial candidates.

AJLPP said that based on data from the Commission on Elections (Comelec), some 300,000 votes are at stake in Maguindanao -- enough to affect the 10th to 12th slots in the senatorial race. “ Maguindanao, Lanao and other places in Mindanao has always been the deciding factors in national elections in the Philippines because of the worst election practices had been conducted there by unscrupulous COMELEC operators like Virgilio Garcellano.”

Bulatlat re[ported that as of yesterday, Genuine Opposition (GO) candidates Antorio Trillanes IV and Aquilino "Koko" Pimentel III are in the 11th and 12th slots, respectively, based on the Comelec tally as of 4:45 p.m. today.

"It was Maguindanao in 2004, today it is still Maguindanao," Guingona said, referring to the alleged fraud in the 2004 elections, where the said province was reported to be a major operation center.

Meanwhile, Comelec chairman Benjamin Abalos said in a press conference yesterday that persons or groups who fail to substantiate reports of fraud will be punished. "We are also looking at the other side because unverified, invalidated reports, which cause alarm to our people, should not be tolerated and should not be left unpunished," he said.

"Instead of encouraging witnesses to come out in the open, the Comelec is threatening them," Dizon said in response to Abalos' statement. "Is the Comelec afraid of the truth that it now resorts to threats?"

Former Social Welfare Secretary Dinky Soliman, who is with the Black and White Movement, expressed a similar view. "The teachers who exposed the fraud there should be given protection, because their lives are in danger," she said.

Genuine Opposition senatorial candidate Anna Dominique "Nikki" Coseteng urged the filing of charges against election officials proven to be involved in poll fraud.

The ralliyist assembled at 3 p.m. in front of the Star City. They were supposed to hold their program in front of the PICC, but police stopped them a few steps away” Bulatlat also reported.
