Philippines: Resist Arroyo’s “mad dog” campaign to cripple the political opposition!
22 Oct 2006 06:38 GMT
The Department of Interior and Local Government's "preventive suspension" of Makati Mayor Jejomar Binay and his entire city council based on flimsy administrative charges marks the height of the Arroyo government's "mad dog" campaign to cripple the political opposition by all means.
This follows the government's recent move to charge 50 civilians and military officers with rebellion including the former President of the University of the Philippines and the Chairperson of Laban ng Masa (Struggle of the Masses), Dr. Francisco Nemenzo. At the same time, the spate of political killings against leftist activists and personalities remains unabated.
