Black Friday Bulletin #9 - Victory Celebration for the Black Friday Protest

Yesterday, the Supreme Court yet again rebuked the GMA administration when it ruled that the warrantless arrest of protesters, the forcible breakup of rallies, and the illegal raid of the Tribune were unconstitutional under cover of PP 1017.

This reaffirms what we have been saying all along - that GMA's continuing and escalating acts of repression are illegal.

You will recall that this movement was birthed on March 1 and was named Black Friday Protest to mourn the death of democracy as symbolized by the declaration of PP 1017 last February 24 - a dark Friday in the history of our nation. With the trashing of EO464, CPR, and now PP 1017 by the Supreme Court, the targets of this protest movement have now been effectively vanquished. Therefore, the Black Friday protest movement has outlived its purpose.

We declare victory!

Next Friday (May 12), we invite everyone who has participated in at least one Black Friday protest activity to join us in our victory celebration (details will be announced in a separate email). We will then formally put an end to the Black Friday Protest Movement.

But the fight goes on.

In the same forum, we will announce Black and White Movement's planned protest actions against GMA's ChaCha, whether through ConAss or through an illegitimate "people's initiative". We will also present our plans to promote the call for snap elections. We will not stop until truth and justice once again prevail upon this nation.

Patalsikin na! Now na!

God bless,

Enteng

"Therefore, the Black Friday protest movement has outlived its purpose."

well, it's over if you convenors say it is, but may i say that the protest movement might still have a purpose?

there is much to still fight for, so many wrongs to oppose, so many iniquities to protest.

nonetheless, congratulations.

Jester, the Black Friday Protest against PP1017, CPR and EO464 is essentially over, but not as far as the STOP CHA CHA initiative or the Black & White actions against Gloria Arroyo. BnW will continue to protest, but not necessarily on a Friday. :-D Our war is far, far from over.

"We declare victory!"

WHAT???????

Let me repost how the group is described/introduced in this blog.

We heard the tapes. We read the transcripts. We believe that GMA cheated. By refusing to take a stand against the cheating, lying, and stealing taking place, Noli de Castro has staked his lot with GMA and therefore does not deserve the mantle of leadership. We, groups and individuals who are part of the Black & White Movement, advocate the RESIGNATION, IMPEACHMENT, or OUSTER of GMA and Noli de Castro.

Did the above made mention of 1017, 464 or CPR? Nothing! This group is all about RESIGNATION, IMPEACHMENT or OUSTER. And now you claim victory????

The first post on this blog was made last Oct. 28, 2005 and this post now claims that this movement was birthed on March 1? Yes, GMA is a cheater. She has no moral ascendancy to rule. But please, in opposing her, do get your facts and acts straight. Masyadong trapo ang dating when you say "We declare victory!"

Come to think of it, did this group had any influence or impact on the Supreme Court justices to claim victory?

pinoy, may I respectfully suggest that you look before you leap? The Black Friday Protest was begun by the Black & White Movement in cooperation with elagda to protest against PP1017, E0464, and CPR. It has its own blog, our partner blog, http://blackfridayprotest.blogspot.com. You may want to read the blog description, it is self-explanatory. We convened it, we can evolve it. We choose to end the parameter of protest on a Friday. We choose to grow it to involve our other advocacies. I hope this clears up your apparent confusion.

The "black friday protests" never helped in the results. Whether you did it or not it doesn't matter. Stop the delusions by saying "Victory Celebration for the Black Friday Protest" and saying things as if your "kabaduyans" had any influence in the outcome. I think you even did more harm to the Anti-Arroyo side of the fence than good. Kahiya hiya kayo. Now na.

Thank you to Enteng, Helga and all those who have chosen to voice out their protests against PP1017, EO464 and CPR. Considering the alternative outcomes, the SC rulings so far are a welcome break. (The sight of maybagongbuhay being nonplussed is a bonus.)

The Arroyo regime, since the start of the Garci tapes' controversy last year, had become so arrogant in violating the constitutional procedures of this land. The regime has a bunch of "macho guys" who are more than willing to violate the Philippine constitution just to ensure that Mrs. Arroyo can finish her term smoothly in year 2010. Such guys like Mike Defensor, Ignacio Bunye, Vidal Querol, Raul Gonzales and Lito Atienza don't seem to know how to make the regime act in accordance with the constitution. I have to suggest to such guys that they should come up with a Pinoy Big Brother-like TV show. And who would participate in such a show? Who else but such "macho guys" like Mike Defensor, Ignacio Bunye, Vidal Querol, Raul Gonzales and Lito Atienza. Such a show should run within 3 days. The televiewers will judge who among the participants will be the show's solo winner. And why should such macho guys do such a show? So that they could learn to follow and obey the basic laws of "Pinoy Big Brother's Own Constitution" within his own house. That experience may help such people become aware of their moral responsibilities. Or, they could do an "Extra Challenge" thing by having a 3-day duty within one of the prison cells inside the "minimum-penalty area" of Muntinlupa Penitentiary. Such 3-day reality-TV show will feature such macho guys performing duties that are usually assigned to "minimum-penalty prisoners". Again, the televiewers will be the ones to judge on who will be declared as the "winner" for such a challenge. Such a show will make those mentioned macho guys become aware of the basic realities that are usually experienced by many of today's impoverished Filipinos. Those macho guys can put up such a show at the government's own TV station- PTV 4. Instead of pronouncing worthless propaganda statements for the Arroyo regime, they can put up such a show to gain wisdom from facing the basic social realities of our country.

Another thing, many of the groups which are waging a peaceful and lawful civil-disobedience campaign against the Arroyo regime here in our country are not really into degrading the dignity of Mrs. Arroyo. I wish Mrs. Arroyo all the happiness in the world. I wish her good health, peace of mind and contentment of conscience in her own present lifetime. Mrs. Arroyo is human just like Mike Defensor, Erap and the ordinary citizens of our country. She is a woman. But I can not yet call her president right now, because she hasn't yet proven that she really won the year 2004 presidential election. And that's really a political problem. It's a problem that degrades the importance of democracy in our country. It's a problem that makes our current government become an object of suspicion by the citizens of this land. It's a problem that is bothering Mrs. Arroyo's own conscience. Mrs. Arroyo, therefore, must really resolve the problem now in her current presidential term. Even if Mrs. Arroyo would finsih her presidential term successfully in year 2010, if the legitimacy issue of the Arroyo presidency will not be resolved during the current presidential term of Mrs. Arroyo, such unsettled legitimacy issue will still haunt Mrs. Arroyo, her family, her former government officials, the opposition parties and the next administration for a long period of time. That is because there have been so many cases of human rights' abuses in this nation that were committed by the governmental agencies in the name of defending the so-called dignity of the presidency from those who have advocated peacefully and lawfully either for the impeachment or for outright resignation of Arroyo from the presidency. As I've said, such problem is also bothering Mrs. Arroyo's own conscience. Mrs. Arroyo needs "spiritual deliverance" from such a problem. I wish that all the Christian bishops in the Philippines, that means from all Christian denominations, should plan a one-day visit to MalacaƱang that can advise Mrs. Arroyo to give way to either a voluntary impeachment trial or the call for a snap presidential election that would allow her to run again but let a care-taker government manage the election. The spiritual faith healers of our land can also petition Mrs. Arroyo to give way to a snap presidential election. Such an election should happen this year. Thanks.

Malakas na ang tama sa ulo nitong si Rummel Pinera. Pati mga Faith Healer eh gusto niyang mag rally laban kay GMA. Talaga nga naman. Pati "Pinoy Big Brother" eh gusto pang pasalihin ang mga tao. Malaki na ang sira sa ulo ng Rummel Pinera na ito. Dapat dito eh hindi na magkaanak dahil maco-contaminate lang ang mundo.

"The spiritual faith healers of our land can also petition Mrs. Arroyo to give way to a snap presidential election. Such an election should happen this year. Thanks."

Bagongbahay, naintindihan mo ba ang pagkakaiba ng "petitioning" at pag-rarali? Palibhasa hindi mo binabasa ang mga messages mabuti. Baka mamaya ay sabihin mong pinagwewelga ko ang mga "faith healers" para magbitiw si Arroyo sa pagkapangulo niya. Ikaw ang may tama diyan e! May tama ka sa pag-iisip dahil di mo binabasa ang mga mensahe. Alam mom noong anti-Erap campaign sa internet noong years 2000 at 2001, ang mga pro-Erap na kadebate namin ay di nagsasalita ng mga maaanghang na komento sa mga kadebate nila. Mga isyu ang pinag-uusapan namin noon. Ngayon, ang mga kamag-anak yata mismo ni Arroyo at mga panatiko niya ay mismong sumasali sa mga debate sa internet at minumura ang mga kadebate nila. Napakawalang-hiya naman ng mga panatikong iyan! Sa halip na isyu ang pinag-uusapan, ang mga kadebate nila ang mga iniinsulto nila.

Yun ay para lamang sa mga nabanggit na 5 tao na mga iyon. Dahil di-marunong sumunod ang mga iyon sa Saligang Batas ng Pilipinas. Dapat ay mag-aral silang sumunod sa mga simpleng batas. Maybagongbahay, kamag-anak ka ba ni Glo Arroyo? Cabinet member ka ba ni Arroyo? Bakit ganyan ka ka- "high blood" sa pagdepensa sa rehimeng Arroyo? Nanay mo ba siya? Bakit "irrational" ang iyong mga "replies" sa mga isyu sa mga blogs. May tama ka yata e! Aminin mo na kasi kung gaano ka kalapit kay Glo Arroyo. Anyway, Mr. Bagongbahay (girl, boy, bakla, o tomboy ka man), I bless you! May the LORD GOD bless you for your kind words! I wish all the Glo Arroy fanatics out there real happiness in the world! Please convince Mrs. Arroyo to resign voluntarily from the presidency! Now na!

Ha ha ha. Malala na talaga itong si Rummel Pinera. Kawawa naman magiging anak nito lalaki ding topakis.

sparc said...

maybagongbuhay what are your views and suggestions to the current political situation of the country?

maybagongligo said...

Huwag nyo nang pansinin si Maybagongbahay. Sayang lang ang katatayp nyo sa pagsagot. Parang nakikipagsagutan lang kayo sa isang nahihibang na baliw! Kita niyo na naman, tawa pa lang baliw na baliw na ang dating! Di naman marunong yang si Maybagongbahay na sumagot nang maayos. Malamang kamag-anak pa yan na malapit ni GMA. Kita niyo naman, mag-reak lang e kunsumido na siya! Parang pasan niya ang mundo. May sarili siyang mundo! Mapapasma lang mga daliri ninyo dito sa blog na'to sa kaka-debate sa isang taong parang walang pinag-aralan kung sumagot at magsalita. Kamag-anak yan na malapit ni GMA.

Wala namang political views yang si topakling na si Maybagongbuhay Adik e! Dapat sa kanya ay pumunta sa isang rehab center o magpa-check up sa isang espesyalistang duktor ng mga may diperensiya sa katinuan. Sana ay di-mahawa ang mga anak niya, yun ay kung meron na siyang mga anak, ng kanyang uri ng kahibangan o kabaliwan. Sa tono ng mga pananalita niyang si Maybagongbuhay Adik na yan ay kapansin-pansin ang pagka-matapobre niya. Lahat ng mga tao sa daigdig ay may kanya-kanyang karma. Baka mamaya ay makakita ka ng mga multo mula sa mga biktima ng mga paglabag sa mga karapatang-pantao ng rehimeng Arroyo.

Ang mga matitinong tao dito sa blog na ito ay di-dapat makipag-usap sa isang taong hibang na hibang sa kaeng-engan. Eng-eng ang lohika ni Maybagongbuhay Adik! Huwag ninyo siyang pag-aksayahan ng mga argumentong lohikal. Kontaminado ng kabaliwan ang mga argumento ni Maybagongbuhay Adik! Dapat na siyang magpatingin sa mental clinic.
