The Alliance-Philippines (AJLPP) calls the 100 days of Benigno S Aquino III, the first one hundred days of failure and broken promises. This is a prelude to the tragic six-years we have to suffer under this new dispensation. Just look at what transpired during his first 100 days:

First One Hundred Days of Failure and Broken Promises

Los Angeles- The Alliance-Philippines (AJLPP) calls the 100 days of Benigno S Aquino III, the first one hundred days of failure and broken promises.

This is a prelude to the tragic six-years we have to suffer under this new dispensation. Just look at what transpired during his first 100 days:

1. All quiet on the Agrarian Reform issue. Noynoy has adopted a “hands-off policy” on the issue. In a family-owned hacienda where seven farm workers were massacred by the military during a strike in 2004, where the issues and the killings were left unresolved to this day, a hands-off policy is tantamount to gross negligence on the part of President Noynoy.

2. Noynoy continues to kowtow to US imperialist dictates on the case of the VFA and US bases. Instead of pursuing the peace talks , he pursues the US counter-insurgency plan -Oplan Bantay-Laya, keeps on the repression.

3 While he gave amnesty to military rebels he is stepping up the military campaign against the NPA and the MILF. More than 220 activists are in jail and more than a hundred are missing or feared to be disappeared.

4 Noynoy has so far failed to abide by his promise to “provide adequate housing and uphold every Filipino’s right to a decent home.” His government’s handling of recent demolition of urban poor communities in North Triangle and other areas in Metro Manila showed neglect of the rights and welfare of the residents, and support to the business groups wanting to take over the land. The demolition at North Triangle was stopped temporarily only because the residents fought tooth and nail to keep the community.

5 Noynoy has failed to act on the jueteng scandal and even continued to defend his shooting buddy - DILG undersecretary Rico Puno – despite the latter’s involvement not only in the jueteng as the new jueteng lord also in the bungling of the hostage crisis on August 23.

6 . Noynoy has so far failed to act on the hostage-taking fiasco that ended in international embarrassment for the country.



7. Noynoy has so far failed to uphold his promise of “investing in quality education” by adding 2 years in high school he is placing new burden to the poor. By cutting the budget of state universities and colleges by P1.1 billion, and the student and faculty assistance by around P700 million, in 2011, he has forsaken public education.

8. Noynoy has failed to uphold his promise not to impose new taxes. His government has been pushing for the implementation of value-added tax and 250-percent increase in toll fees on the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) which awaits implementation this year. Not to mention the impending increase in MRT and LRT fares toward the end of this year.

9. Noynoy has failed to carry out a clear policy on his government’s “poverty eradication” program. The P21-billion conditional cash transfer program being touted by Social Welfare Secretary Dinky Soliman as a poverty-eradication measure is in fact a high-interest loan from the Asian Development Bank which will burden the future generation.

The loan will add to the already high burden of debt repayment which is now ranging at -7 billion annually. Even Noynoy’s flaunting of 4-million grant from the United States government is mere peanuts compared to the yearly debt repayment the country has to chalk up to US multinational lenders. It is in fact designed to bribe Noynoy’s government from pursuing debt moratorium strategy.

Noynoy’s government is clearly hampered by the type of individuals he keeps in his inner circle. Noynoy has appointed in his cabinet the top brass of big industry (former CEO of big corporations, such as finance secretary Jose Purisima, DPWH secretary Singson, trade secretary Domingo and the likes).

In so doing, Noynoy has exposed his government as the same as the other regimes- a puppet of US imperialist corporations and feudal lords.

A government dominated by the economic elites, clans and corporations.
