ALLIANCE CONDEMNS BRUTAL AND SENSELESS KILLINGS OF ALTON STERLING OF LOUISIANA AND PHILANDO CASTILE IN MINNESOTA

Rally For Akai GurleyLos Angeles—”Enough is enough, Stop the senseless killings!”

The Alliance Philippines condemns the brutal and senseless twin police killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile in Minnesota.

With the deaths of Alton Sterling in Louisiana and Philando Castile in Minnesota, the list of black lives taken by the police grew longer. On the other the injustice and inaction by the authorities and the travesty of justice continues to be unabated.

No justice, No Peace

We cannot go on with this kind of justice in what they called “the land of the free and the home of the brave”. The fact that the killings came after the 4th July is a travesty of justice itself.

The Filipino-American community condemns this continuing brand of injustice. The more we must unite to fight and support Black Lives Matter.

An injury to one, is an injury to all!

No Justice, no Peace!

SHADES OF MARTIAL LAW

By Arturo P. Garcia

PFM

By my own monitoring, more than 100 drug addicts, drug pushers and drug lords have been killed by the police and some vigilante groups.

More than 5,000 involved in the trade trade have surrendered en masse all over the Philippines .

Even the PNP Director General has accepted the fact that the PNP is not ready for this mass surrender. They have less rehabilitation centers ready or the infrastructure for this mass surrender.

At the rate the President Digong Duterte is going, many more Generals and government officials will fall with this anti-drug and criminality drive within the next six months.

What worries me is that scenario is what happened during the 14 years of martial law. Just replace the drug lords and drug pushers and addicts with “ communist terrorists.”

Mysterious-image-appeared-onPH-flag-during-Dutertes-inaugural-speechThis is the same modus operandi that the police and the AFP has been doing during martial law to impress the ten Dictator Marcos.

The newspaper will be filled with thousands of NPA surrenderees, NPA supporters and mass base surrendering in masse in different provinces.

Surrendered or capture Communist and NPA leaders are paraded for photo opportunity for Generals and Regional Commanders for their promotions and for the eyes and ears of the President.

Counting all those who have surrendered or captured NPA’s or MNLF all through the years, you will wonder why there are still NPA and MNLF and why they grew stronger during the Marcos years.

If there is a spike of criminality in the urban areas, the President will at once unleash his “secret marshals” and what we see now are the death tolls left and right.

The only difference is the new President made this call in public and even made the PNP bolder by saying,” Sagot ko kayo.” Hence, the rise in killings.

Another difference is that he has named the Generals who are involved in the drug menace. The only problem is how the process will take place and how long it will take.

As if Duterte has find a way to impose martial law without even declaring. And as if the public is enjoying it.

Noynoy Aquino made an example of corrupt officials starting from the top, in the judiciary, the Supreme Court and the Senate. But it stopped at this friends.

Duterte started on the top and ask the bottom echelon to help him. He even sought the help of the armed and the underground left. And they are responding.

As they say,” there are different ways on how to skin a cat.”
