Militants in Lanao to use rotten tomatoes in protest

Anjo Bacarisas, Bagong Alyansang Makabayan secretary-general for Lanao del Norte, said "we have prepared rotten tomatoes for the rotten regime" in the nationwide protest on Monday. They will hold the demonstration in front of the Iligan City Post office.

The group said that "people power fatigue is not true.”  "

The people will never be tired of struggling against a President who gives them the hardest days of their lives, and the collective action of toppling this hated regime is the only way out," he said.

Bacarisas said that an event that President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo would be ousted, "Bayan would support the move for the creation of the Transition Council, which will be composed of the representatives of the most effective forces [working on] Arroyo's ouster."

The group said that the most urgent task of the Council would be "to repeal all anti-people laws enacted by the US-Arroyo regime, and craft solutions for the people's immediate relief, such as the P125 across-the-board wage increase and the passage of the Genuine Agrarian Reform Bill".

For Bayan, he said, "tthe Transition Council is the best option because history has showed that replacing a puppet President with another puppet one is proven inutile". (MindaNews)
