    Thousands rally in Philippines, warn of Duterte 'dictatorship'
    By Manuel Mogato, Roli Ng | Sept 21, 2017

    [​IMG]

    MANILA (Reuters) - Thousands of Filipinos rallied on Thursday to denounce Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte and warn of what they called an emerging dictatorship, in a major show of dissent against the controversial but hugely popular leader.

    Politicians, indigenous people, priests, businessmen, and left-wing activists held marches and church masses accusing Duterte of authoritarianism and protesting at policies including a ferocious war on drugs that has killed thousands.

    Signs saying “Stop The Killings” and “No To Martial Rule” reflected fears that Duterte would one day deliver on his threat to declare nationwide military rule like that imposed by late dictator Ferdinand Marcos.

    The rallies marked the 45th anniversary of the start of that era, remembered by many Filipinos as brutal and oppressive.

    Effigies of Duterte were burned, including one which bore both his face and that of late Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

    A protester with a toy gun played dead on the ground in a reenactment of one of a spree of drug-related killings that activists say are executions staged by police. Police reject those allegations.

    Anti-Duterte Senator Risa Hontiveros said democracy was under threat by a “Dutertatorship” with a “policy of killing”.

    Vice President Leni Robredo, who was not Duterte’s running mate, said Filipinos should recognize signs of “rising tyranny”.

    “It’s sad that we seemed to have not learned our lessons,” Robredro said. “There’s a culture of violence around us.”

    Marcos declared martial law in 1972 and held power for 14 years until his removal in a bloodless, army-backed “people’s power” uprising. He abolished democratic institutions and was accused of killing, torturing and “disappearing” thousands of opponents.

    ‘JUST GRIPING’

    Duterte has expressed admiration for Marcos. His critics are alarmed by his autocratic rhetoric and a vicious disdain for his detractors.

    But he won last year’s election by a big margin and has maintained one of the highest public approval ratings of a Philippines president.

    Several thousand turned out on Thursday to show their support for Duterte at a rival rally that entertained crowds with live music, dancing and food.

    “This is to tell the people that ‘here we are, we are the majority who are happy with the government and not those few who are just griping’,” said rally organizer Benny Antiporda, a former journalist.

    Millions of Filipinos admire Duterte’s down-to-earth style, his decisiveness and even his imperfections.

    His supporters at home and among the diaspora see him as a champion of ordinary people and the best hope for change that presidents from the political elite failed to bring.

    The anti-Duterte demonstrators criticized his pro-China stance and the destruction in southern Marawi City by military air strikes targeting Islamist militants.

    Others decried what they see as his cozy relationship with the still-powerful Marcos family.

    “It seems that what we fought for in 1972, is again back. The total disrespect for human life, dignity, human rights. And that was how we started,” said Rene Saguisag, a former senator and human rights lawyer.

    “In some ways, it may be worse.”

    I was waiting for your update. Did everyone discuss Duterte's public remark that the police should kill his son (and he will protect those police) if his son is indeed guilty of drug trafficking?

    I don't believe him. I think his son is probably safely squirreled away with his Chinese friends, and of course he has to say this. He also promised to resign if his kids got caught in any sort of illegal activity, but mum's the word on that.

    Heh, people who believe that claim probably also believed his previous pledge to voluntarily step down after 3 months.

    “We are ruling out foul play,” Dagoy told reporters. “Certainly no foul play.”

    Just your typical murder of a Presidential guard, in close proximity to the president...nothing to see here.

    New investments fell 90%! After repeatedly bad mouthing America and Americans, Duterte sends economic team to America to plead for investments.


    This figure loomed large as the Duterte administration prepared to send off an economic team to attract US businessmen to the Philippines — new investments declined by 90.3 percent in the first half of 2017.



    90% investment fall looms large for finance team


    The gloomy picture, presented at a Senate budget hearing and cited by Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon, cast a long shadow over an announcement by the Department of Finance (DOF) about sending an economic team to the United States to present the administration’s “Build, Build, Build” infrastructure plan and a blueprint for tax reforms.

    Drilon had expressed alarm at the figures presented at a hearing last week on the budget of the National Economic and Development Authority (Neda).

    In a statement, Drilon said data from the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas on the latest Foreign Direct Investment showed a “significant deceleration” in new investments.

    The entry of new investments, not money reinvested in existing businesses, went down by 90.3 percent in the first six months of 2017 — $141 million — compared to the same period last year — $1.448 billion.

    Diesel tax, fuel levy hike to take effect in 2018


    MANILA, Philippines - If passed by Congress, the tax on diesel and higher taxes on other oil products that members of the House committee on ways and means approved on Wednesday will take effect next year, Albay Rep. Joey Salceda said yesterday.

    The Department of Finance (DOF) lauded the move, expressing hope that the chamber would be able to approve the bill by June.

    The Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI), the country’s largest business organization, expressed support for the bill and expects it to be passed soon after hurdling the committee level.

    I mean if it's suicide I guess, but who shoots themselves in the chest? And if it's not suicide, isn't it foul play by definition?

    Puta talaga pre... I hope the tax increase will not really drive the cost of goods that high.


    It really sucks ass that the country now only have two choices the corrupt political dynasty of Dilawan Aquino or the Corrupt and even murderous govertment of the emmerging Duterte/ Marcos dictatorship.

    It seems all the nasty politicians came out of the woodwork when D30 rise to power.
