Progressive party-lists, people’s organizations endorsers of the GMA impeachment complaint to launch “BANTAY IMPEACHMENT” tomorrow in Congress

Anakpawis Party-list, Bayan Muna and Gabriela Women’s Party as well as people’s organizations Bagong Alyansang Makabayan, Kilusang Mayo Uno (KMU), Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas (KMP), Kalipunan ng Damayang Mhihirap (KADAMAY), Youth DARE, Gabriela, Migrante International, Promotion of Church People’s Response (PCPR), Gloria Step Down Movement (GSM) Anakbayan and other pro-impeachment groups will be establishing “Bantay ” beginning tomorrow, August, 10, 2005, as the House of Representatives begin deliberations on the impeachment complaint against Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

“Bantay Impeachment” is the project of the three progressive party-lists in coordination with people’s organizations under Bayan, whose Congressional representatives and leaders are all signatories and endorsers of the impeachment complaint against Pres Arroyo. It will be set up tomorrow at the HOR’s south wing lobby.

“Bantay Impeachment” will be releasing a regular news bulletin regarding the campaigns of the pro-impeachment groups such as rallies, fora, symposia and signature campaigns. Tomorrow, the three progressive party-lists will be launching an in-house signature campaign for all House employees and staff, encouraging them to support the impeachment process, and to urge their bosses to sign the impeachment complaint.

“Bantay Impeachment” will also provide as an alternative source of news, giving materials proving the substantiality of the various impeachable offense of Pres. Arroyo, primarily on the massive human rights violations and activist killings; anomalous contracts for the building of public infrastructure and other projects, violation of sovereignty and patrimony laws, and the general undermining of the people’s economic welfare.

Various pro-impeachment and pro-ouster paraphernalia such as CDs, buttons and stickers will also be made available for the media. “It is crucial to make sure that the Filipino people be continuously informed on the developments in the impeachment hearings and to safeguard the impeachment process from any and all attempts of Malacanang and its allies in Congress to delay, derail or dismiss the complaint,’ said the Bantay Impeachment coordinators.

A blogsite is also being established, wherein literary luminaries and well-known journalists will be invited to contribute their pieces and writings on the impeachment process and the over-all campaign to remove the corrupt and illegitimate presidency. #
