Press Statement

March 15, 2012

Renato M. Reyes, Jr. Secretary General

Mr. Lacierda’s statement on the oil protests betrays his utter contempt for the people. It’s both arrogant and insensitive. He calls protests “perwisyo” and claims these divert from meaningful discourse on the issues. He is oblivious to the plight of many Filipinos reeling from high oil prices. By the way, it is a “peoples protest”, not limited to transport groups and participated in by different sectors in different protest centers.

Mr. Lacierda, we’re prepared to engage you in any type of discourse on the issue of oil and taxes. The problem with you and the administration is you never listen. This is the reason why people have no other recourse but to protest and air their grievances, a right that is guaranteed by the Consitutiton.

The protests will continue until government responds the people’s demands. Mr. Lacierda, ang totoong perwisyo dito ay ang mataas na presyo ng langis, ang VAT at ang deregulation law. Learn it before making absurd remarks.
