Freedom and democracy loving peoples crossing fingers for a Bush defeat;
Malacanang hoping for Bush victory out of political convenience and expediency
- Rep. Beltran

Anakpawis Representative Crispin Beltran today said that George W. Bush' defeat
the polls would be the victory of millions of citizens, not just Americans,
and would be hailed by all freedom and justice-loving peoples.

"Bush does not deserve a second term. What he deserves is immediate trial and
imprisonment for the countless crimes he has committed against humanity -
particularly the people of Afghanistan and Iraq," he said. "A second term for
Bush can only means greater suffering for the people of Iraq and other nations
victimized by the American government's inhumane economic and political
policies and military hegemony."

Beltran, chairman of the International League of People's Struggles (ILPS) which
has over 900 member organizations in 45 countries all over the world, said that
a Bush victory would inevitably result in intensified global political
instability, as well as worsened security problems for the US.

In the meantime, the veteran labor leader said that despite Malacanang's refusal
to admit it, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is in truth batting for Bush.
"Pres. Arroyo has benefited much from Bush' support, and she has cultivated
diplomatic ties with his administration to ensure the security and survival of
her own office. Suffice it to say, it will be beneficial for Malacanang if Bush
remains in office because a new president in the White House would mean new
dialogues, new negotiations, and new terms of agreement between the two
governments," he said.

"If Bush wins, Malacanang will be falling all over itself congratulating him.
Without a doubt, Pres. Arroyo will be heaving a sigh of relief because there
will be no need for renegotiations on bilateral trade and political agreements
with the US government."

Beltran said that the only way Bush could secure a large victory over contender
Sen. John Kerry would be through massive cheating. "He's done it before, and he
isn't above doing it again," he said. "Up to now, millions question his 2001
victory over Al Gore," he said.

Beltran said that if he wins, the challenge for Sen. Kerry would be to undo the
damage Bush has wrought in the US economy, and remedy America's destructive
foreign policy vis-à-vis Iraq and the international community regarding the
so-called war against terrorism.

"Kerry would prove to be no different from Bush if he will only continue to
implement the policies his predecessor has pushed with such vicious
determination against the will of the American people and the international
community. He will also reap the same outrage if he does not make a radical
shift from Bush' economic, political and military policies." he said. #
