GMA in NYC!

URGENT ACTION ALERT!
JULY 31, 2009.


The most hated President of the Philippines, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, will be in New York city TODAY!
We urge you to stand in solidarity with the Filipino people and join us for a protest rally to condemn Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s morally bankrupt regime!

Where: Waldorf Astoria, 301 Park Ave. New York, NY 10022
When: July 31, 2009.
Time: 6:00pm to 8:00pm
WHY: Since Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo assumed power in 2001, human rights violations, suppression of civil liberties and massive poverty fell upon the Filipino people. 1013 peasant, labor, student, youth, human rights worker and civil society leaders have been murdered in cold blood, 200+ have been dissappeared and are yet to be found and a thousand more suffered the most inhumane torture.

Last May 19, 2009. A US-citizen of Filipino descent, by the name of Melissa Roxas was abducted in La Paz, Pampanga, Philippines was abducted while doing volunteer work as a community health worker. She was then released on May 25, 2009 after being tortured for 6 straight days. (see justiceformelissa.org for more info). Now she is standing up against the atrocities that Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s regime committed to her and to countless more victims of human rights.

While we, here in the US are suffering from rabid budget cuts to our social services, such as education and health care, the US government, now under the Obama administration, is planning to send $33 million more for military aidout of our hard earned tax dollars, which will inevitably us by Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s private army (the Armed Forces of the Philippines) into weapons for murdering more of our brothers and sisters in the Philippines, who, just like you and me, are just struggling to live a better and decent life.

Now, we strongly urge you to stand in solidarity with the Filipino people all over the world in condemning Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s tyrannical regime. Today, while the FIlipino people are dying from poverty, she, along with her cronies, will be staying lavishly at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York. Now is the time to speak out! Now is the time to stand on the right side of history, on the side of the struggling Filipino people!


OUST THE FASCIST ARROYO REGIME!
NO TO STATE-SPONSORED KILLINGS IN THE PHILIPPINES!
NO TO TORTURE AND ABDUCTION IN THE PHILIPPINES!
NO TO US-TAX DOLLARS FOR STATE TERRORISM!
JUSTICE FOR MELISSA ROXAS!
