For Immediate Release
STOP Cha Cha Secretariat: Leah Navarro +63-917-898-1957
We are outraged!  We protest and decry the brazen move by the majority faction of the  House of Representatives, notwithstanding some dissension within its ranks, to pass Resolution 1109 upon the orders of Malacanang.  It is clear that the HOR has been representing the interests of the Palace all along.  This is survival at all cost.
The House Majority is violating the constitution with this highly unpopular move, blatantly ignoring the bicameral nature of Congress.  This cabal of GMA lackeys has ignored its constituents by ignoring the need for rigorous consultation, because it is aware of public distaste for charter change at this time.  This is frightening – the use of a simple resolution aimed at changing our future, and not for the better.
The administration’s avowal of elections in 2010 is a seemingly empty promise, as not even the Speaker of the House can aver as to what this convention is set to accomplish.  That ignorance should be enough to raise the hackles of the most apathetic.  This administration is used to subterfuge and lies, do not expect it to tell us the truth any time soon.
We give honor where it is due.  We commend our earnest and hardworking members of the House Minority and the select, brave members of the majority for their valiant defense of our constitution.  These lawmakers are aware of their place in history.
We invite the media to a special conference on Thursday, 4 June, 10:00am, Gabaldon Room, Club Filipino in Greenhills featuring presidential aspirants that are against this latest crime against our people.  As of this writing, the following have confirmed their attendance – Sen. Mar Roxas, Mayor Jojo Binay, and former president Joseph Estrada.  We are awaiting the confirmations of Sen. Ping Lacson, Sen. Manny Villar, Sen. Chiz Escudero, Sen. Loren Legarda, Sen. Richard
Gordon, Among Ed Panlilio, JC de los Reyes. – – END
