Chiz calls for united front vs Cha-cha

PhotobucketBy Brando Cortez

ROSALES-Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero in a press statement said that the people ought to put up a united front composed of all sectors of society against moves for charter change.

The ‘cha-cha now’ move in congress has once again opened the debate as to the real motive of its being revived.

The people are being pushed to choose on whether they are for or against charter change.

“In the face of the shameless intransigence of those who want to do the ‘cha-cha now,’ it is time to draw the line and be one with the people, Escudero said.

bishop2Lately, a trusted survey firm came out with the conclusion that there is a much higher unemployment rate in the Country during these depressed and depressing times — compared to those obtaining since 2005.

Concretely, the survey said that there are some 11 million employable yet in fact unemployed Filipinos to date. And immediately, the distrusted administration made the vain self-serving option to make its very own survey with the immediate conclusion that unemployment in the Philippines is in fact very much less — even before its own desired and designed survey started. How convenient! How neat!

Less the Malacanang tenant forget — together with the latter’s faithfully and loudly cheering squads for all its intents and purposes plus those in command of both local and foreign business and industry — the core significance of unemployment is not really its rate in number and scope.

R.A. 9262: Anti-violence against women and their children

susan2Ayon sa ating mga kababaihang pulis na nakatalaga sa Women and Children’s Desks, patuloy ang kanilang ginagawang pakikipag-ugnayan sa mga barangay upang ipaalam sa bawat pamilya na may batas na nagbibigay proteksyon sa kanila at maaaring magparusa sa sinumang lalaking kanilang karelasyon na lumalabag sa kanilang karapatan bilang mga babae.

Marami na ring umanong mga battered women ang matapang na lumabas at isinumbong ang kanilang asawa o ka-live-in partner. Pero mas marami pa rin ang nanatiling tikom ang bibig, nagtitiis o kaya’y nahihiyang ipaalam na sila’y biktima ng karahasan sa loob mismo ng kanilang tahanan.

Ilan sa kadahilanan ay ang kawalan ng alternatibong paraan ng pagkukunan ng ikabubuhay para sa kanyang pamilya. Ang iba naman ay nais manatiling buo ang pamilya kung kaya’t pilit na lang tinitiis ang sitwasyon. Mayroong ding likas na martyr at nanatiling takot sa asawa sa kabila ng heto at nakabuyangyang ang batas na maaaring magbigay proteksyon sa kanila. Marami ring nahihiyang malaman ng publiko na sila ay kasama sa statistics ng mga babaeng biktima ng karahasan sa kanilang tahanan at marami ang sadyang hindi nila alam ang gagawin dahil hindi nila talaga alam ang kanilang karapatan.
