As the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) turned down an art exhibit for being too political, the works of progressive artists found a place where it is needed the most – the streets.
“They [Marcoses] are now using stolen wealth to return to power,” Reyes said in Filipino. “Do not expect Marcos Jr. to change the rotten system, he will exploit this system to return to power just as his father did.”
“With our current political-economic turmoil and the pandemic situation in the Philippines, we firmly believe that Vice President Leni Robredo, a God-fearing person, is the most capable candidate for the Presidency, and we urge our constituents, if possible, to consider the same.”
Fr. Wilfredo Dulay asks: How can we return to a golden age that we never had?
“Allowing Marcos Jr. to run will be a mockery not only of the elections but of our nation’s history, our democracy, and our hard-won rights and freedoms.”
Respondents said that per the certificate of candidacy (COC) that Marcos Jr. filed, there was a deliberate intent to mislead, misinform, and deceive the electorate, saying that his knowledge of the fact that he was convicted of tax evasion charges is undeniable.
“We can already see his noncommittal stance to the ICC’s investigation into the complaints on crimes against humanity by Duterte and his minions. Marcos Jr.’s reasoning is clearly a cop-out for his uninhibited support for Duterte.”
Vice President Leni Robredo announces she is running for president.
“Last weeks’ Sandiganbayan ruling ordering the return of the Marcos’ ill-gotten wealth worth more than P100 million ($1.9 million) that was deposited by former Traders Royal Bank is but a small showcase of the largesse and greed of the Marcoses. His bid will undoubtedly be funded through the plundered funds from the nation’s coffers from the time of his father’s dictatorship.”
