We Meet Who The Speaker Meets

The Black & White Movement believes in political pluralism, and denounces all attempts to persecute Filipinos on the basis of their political affiliations, or membership in organizations and parties permitted by law.

However, for the sake of clarity and in order to dispel misleading and fraudulent information being peddled to the public, we wish to make the following clear.

The Black & White Movement, whether as a group or individually, on the part of its members and convenors, has never undertaken exclusive meetings with the Communist Party of the Philippines, the New People's Army, or any of its affiliated organizations.

Like all legitimate, above-ground organizations, we in Black & White Movement have met with legitimate, legally recognized groups, of varied political and ideological persuasions, wherever they are active, in meetings and activities that are perfectly lawful, and protected by our Constitution's guarantees of free speech, and to peaceably assemble to address our grievances with the government.

Hahaha! You know, that was an excellent post, the one you did. It gave everyone a heads up. The recent "setback" suffered by Danny Lim et al hasn't seemed to dampen spirits much. Sen. Biazon still thinks they're seething. My fear is that recent events may drive some guy who can't wait to do something drastic. God forbid. Takot ako!

We're just going to have to keep up the pressure, but going that way may not work at this point. It really is in our hands, the way to point our nation in the right direction. Sad nga lang that so many people would rather sit on their hands instead of raising their fists.

By the way, what's your take on Benipayo's resignation? Am happy he left the snake pit, but a little sad that PP1017 lost its "best" defender. Heh heh heh...

they say he was forced to resign by arroyo and DOJ sec. siRAULo gonalez for bungling the oral arguments on PROC 1017.

Effective April. 1 raw.

i really don't have much to say about that guy benipayo or his resignation.

John,

Sol Gen Benipayo resigned because he failed to enunciate clearly the position of government on 1017. After all, how does one defend the indefensible?

With his resignation goes his chance of being appointed as Justice of the Supreme Court. As you know, Nachura and Benipayo are contenders for the position.

Since Benipayo seemed to have failed the government, and considering that Raul Gonzalez is a member of the Judicial and Bar Council, his chances of getting a Supreme Court appointment are next to nil. Hence, Benipayo had to say he was going back to private practice.

But I think Sol Gen Benipayo was not the best defender of the government. It would have been Dean Nachura but you could easily throw the book he authored himself and refute all his arguments about national emergency with the words in his own book.

Finally, John, o o naman, bawal na yung leftist, centrist, rightist coup! Pero, hindi alam ni Mike Arroyo, pag wala na sila sa pwesto, pwede rin silang kasuan ng rebellion, deba? Kung si Crispin Beltran, hinuli dahil sa rebelling against the Marcos regime at panalo ang people power, di ganoonn rin si FG.

What is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander!
