On Thursday, June 9, 2022, in Concepcion town, Tarlac, Philippines, 20 local policemen, and three teams of the Philippine National Police accosted and arrested 93 people for holding a cooperative planting on a 2-hectare piece of the 200-hectare Hacienda Tinang. This arrest is the biggest mass arrest of farmers and peasant advocates under the outgoing Duterte administration.
There should be no doubt that the Filipino people have chosen Robredo and Pangilinan. Marcos and Duterte have relied on their control of the Supreme Court and the Commission on Elections, stacked as these are by the appointees of their fathers; the systematic rewriting of textbooks to falsify history and whitewash the crimes of the Marcoses; defective vote counting machines supplied by a Duterte crony; an army of social media trolls they’ve financed; voter disenfranchisement, vote buying, and intimidation; to engineer a massive operation “dagdag-bawas” (add-substract) to frustrate the will of the Filipino people and steal the elections.
Malaya Canada, an alliance of patriotic Filipinos in Canada, welcomes the revelation by Commission on Elections (Comelec) Commissioner Rowena Guanzon that she voted to disqualify Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr., (BBM) from running for the Presidency of the Philippines because of moral turpitude.
We, Malaya Canada, call on all people of good will, to frustrate the political machinations of Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr., Sara Duterte, and Rodrigo Duterte.
