Filipino journalists remember 'Maguindanao massacre' (tags)
Wednesday, December 23, 2009 ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines – Dozens of journalists held a prayer rally Wednesday in Zamboanga City to remember and seek justice for the brutal slayings of 57 people, among them at least 30 journalists massacred last month in Maguindanao province in the southern Philippines.
Now it can be told: Martial Law a desperate attempt to exonerate AFP/PNP, US-Arroyo Regime (tags)
ThePESANTE NEWS today learned that the Armed Forces of the Philippines's posturing as hero in the aftermath of the Ampatuan massacre is hypocritical in the face of hidden arms caches found in the Ampatuan warlord's mansions and vast properties. These military-owned high-powered rifles, ammunition, and war materiel are evidence that pin the devious collusion between the Ampatuan warlord clan, their mercenaries in the AFP top brass, and the Arroyo family. Faced with mounting nationwide anger that could lead to an Oust Gloria reprisal, the Arroyo regime imposed Martial Law in Maguindanao in a desperate attempt to exonerate itself from the culpability of arming, backing, and using political warlords and their private armies in its counter-revolutionary schemes. It is ironic for 601st Infantry Brigade-AFP commander Col. Leo Ferrer, in the midst of the martial law hullabaloo, to warn Ampatuan supporters and CVOs of the military's capability to launch tactical offensives if the latter remains unwilling to be disarmed.
Mga warlord, inaruga ng mga rehimeng tuta ng Imperyalismong US (tags)
Matagal nang kilala ang angkang Ampatuan sa pagiging mababagsik na warlord. Subalit pinasahol pa ito ng naghaharing rehimeng Arroyo. Bago maganap ang madugong masaker sa Maguindanao, mahigpit na nakapailalim sa kapangyarihang pyudal-militar ng warlord na angkang Ampatuan ang prubinsyang ito at ang Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM). Mula pa noong dekada 1930, sa panahon ng tuwirang kolonyalismo ng US ay naghahari na sa mga bahaging iyon ng Mindanao ang angkan. Mahigpit silang nakikipagtulungan sa mga pwersang militar, paramilitar at pulisya ng sunud-sunod na papet na reaksyunaryong rehimen. Pinakabase ng pampulitikang kapangyarihan nila ang sangkatlo ng mga munisipalidad sa prubinsya ng Maguindanao.
