House Of Shameful Representatives Gang Rapes The Philippines And Democracy

For the second time in less than three years, the House of Representatives has passed a legislative measure to convene itself—without the institutional participation of the Senate—as a constituent assembly. The near-midnight vote last Tuesday was similar to the extenuated voting that ended in the early morning of Dec. 7, 2006: a shameless railroading of an unconstitutional, anti-democratic measure, designed only to extend the Arroyo administration’s hold on power.

We join all Filipinos in condemning this immoral act, this betrayal of the nation’s highest interests in exchange (as came to light after the first time) for the proverbial 30 pieces of silver.

Nothing in House Resolution 1109 could be said to serve the common good.
