OFW groups denounce Machiavellian conspiracy to justify imposition of
martial rule; “Not even a single OFW OK’d “con-ass”, cha-cha, and Arroyo’s
reign beyond her term”
OFWs organizations in the Middle East headed by the Kapatiran sa Gitnang
Silangan (KGS), a pioneering member-organization of Migrante International
along with Migrante-KSA chapters in Al Khobar, Jeddah, Dawadmi, Saudi
Arabia and other OFWs organizations will be having a press conference
tomorrow to formally announce the formation of OFWs broad alliance against
‘con-ass”, Charter change and Mrs. Arroyo’s reign beyond her term and
denounce the Machiavellian conspiracy of the Arroyo administration to
justify the imposition of martial rule in the Philippines.
“OFWs in Saudi Arabia and in the Middle East are united in their
opposition against “con-ass” and Charter change; tomorrow we will formally
launch OFW organizations’ alliance and will denounce the Machiavellian
conspiracy as a desperate move by Macapagal-Arroyo clique to put the
country under state of martial law and perpetuate in power under the
wishes of its US imperialist masters,” said Eric Jocson, KGS Chairperson.
Jocson said the formation of a OFWs broad alliance is a milestone for
migrant workers movement in a place where freedom to express political
views and beliefs are restricted.
“But the prevailing situations where we are is not a hindrance to express
our collective opposition against a despotic, anti-people and anti-OFWs,
and a puppet Arroyo regime who surrendered our national independence and
much willing to sell our nation’s wealth and patrimony in favor of her US
imperialist masters,” Jocson added.
Migrante chapters in the Middle East is also readying to join the “No
Remittance” day as legitimate and fair protest action against the betrayal
of our people’s trust by Mrs. Arroyo and her allies in Congress in their
vain attempt to effect changes in the Constitution to serve their selfish
interests to remain in power and sell out of our nation’s wealth and
John Leonard Monterona, Migrante-ME regional coordinator said aside from
urging the families and relatives of OFWs back home to join protests
actions scheduled on the 27th July, OFWs have already expressed their
support to the “No remittance” day on the 27th of July if Arroyo-dominated
Congress will convene “con-ass”.
“Our planned “No Remittance” Day campaign is a legitimate political act of
OFWs and their families not just against “con-ass” being desperately
pushed by the Arroyo administration and its Machiavellian plot to justify
imposition of martial law but also manifests our strong condemnation
against the gross negligence committed by the most-anti OFW Arroyo
administration,” Monterona added.
“We have a government under the Arroyo administration that is neglectful
and have long been committing economic plunder of our nation, and at the
expense of the millions of OFWs’ sweat and blood who were forced to work
abroad due to its failure to create jobs locally with decent wage and
benefits due to our workers,” Monterona averred.
Monterona reiterates in no way OFWs could be accused of being economic
saboteurs by acting collectively not to remit in just a single day if
pro-administration Congressmen convene its “con-ass” to effecting changes
in the Constitution that betrays our people’s trust.
“The Arroyo administration and its minions are the real economic saboteur
as we have seen unto the numerous alleged cases of graft and corruptions
and anomalous deals involving the administration,” Monterona added.
“OFWs and their families have enough reasons to completely withdraw their
trust and confidence to the anti-people, anti-OFWs and most distrusted
Arroyo administration,” Monterona ended. # # #
