OBAMA’S VICTORY IS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE’S STATEMENT AGAINST THE BUSH
REGIME -GABRIELA

Gabriela Women’s Party Rep. Liza Maza today acknowledged the
determination of the American people in their struggle for change with
the historic election of Barrack Obama as the first black US
president. “Like the Filipino people, they have been the ones
suffering from Bush administration’s bent policies that plunged them
into this financial meltdown. They have endured the brunt of the
militarist Bush regime that led them into wars of aggression under the
pretext of its so called global campaign against terrorism.”

“His strong and vocal opposition against the Bush administration
effectively won him the seat in the White House. His campaign rhetoric
was indeed translated into landslide victory as he projected himself
as the total opposite of Bush,” said Maza.

According to the Gabriela lawmaker, “This much anticipated event has
drawn more attention worldwide at this very period when the US economy
is at its worst. Undeniably, there is a growing resistance among the
American people against the Bush regime that has brought them into the
depths of despair.”

“The challenge for President-elect Barack Obama right now is how he
could truly provide concrete relief measures that would effectively
address the just demands of the American people. It is a matter of
making bold decisions that would strategically respond to their
quandary. It is a matter of redirecting its policies to provide real
jobs and income, basic social services and security instead of
pressing forward its warmongering schemes.”

Gabriela Women’s Party likewise poses the challenge for Obama to end
all forms of US military intervention in its foreign relations policy,
“The pull-out of US troops should happen not just in Iraq but in other
countries where US military personnel have permanent or temporary
military presence, including the Philippines.”#
