Anakbayan statement on Mar Roxas appointment as DILG secretary

Roxas DILG appointment shows Aquino hypocrisy and trapo ways

The reported appointment of “kapartido” Mar Roxas as Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) secretary, if true, shows how hypocritical and unabashedly trapo the Aquino administration is.

Many demand the same brand of leadership DILG secretary Jesse Robredo was praised for — Aquino did the exact opposite by appointing a certified trapo. This is the worst possible tribute he could give Robredo.

The KKK appointment shows Aquino’s insincerity and hypocrisy regarding accolades he has given Robredo. This is in addition to the fact that when Robredo was alive, Aquino failed to rally the Liberal Party to confirm Robredo’s appointment and made him share the DILG with “kabarilan” Ronaldo Puno.

Roxas’ appointment smacks of patronage politics and will further strengthen the trapo ways of government, considering that elections are fast approaching.

The urban poor should strengthen the fight against demolition of their homes as we are almost certain that Roxas the landlord will not exercise the concern and leniency for the poor that Robredo has shown. Roxas is sure to further the interests of capitalists and oppressive landlord clans.

    lol. wala naman talaga kayong ginawa kundi magreklamo. pinanganak ata kayo para mag-welga, magreklamo, at magreklamo pang muli.

      @paula Di ba nagrereklamo ka din sa statement mo na yan? kasi may napapansin kang “mali”? tulad mo, meron din silang napapansin na MALI. intindihin mo muna kung ano yun bago ka din magreklamo sa pagrereklamo nila. :)

    • atleast may mga tao/grupong nagrereklamo sa mga trapong opisyal.. kesa naman manahimik nalang at walang ginagawa.mas laong lumala at dumami ang trapo..hehe,
      dapat sana ang ginawa mo ay intindihin kung bakit may nagreklamo. check and balance yan.. wag lang tayo puro positive, tingnan naman din natin yong negative para duon tayo matuto…

    Kung tumutuligsa o nagrereklamo man ang Anakbayan, dahil may kailangan tuligsain at ireklamo. Anong mali sa sinansabi ng statement na ito? Mar Roxas, Aquino’s running mate last 2010 election, is trapo, so is Aquino. Matagal na tayong pinapahirapan ng mga trapo. Sa halip na tuligsain din ang Anakbayan sa kanilang pagtuligsa sa mga trapo, dapat tayong magkaisa laban sa mga trapo. Kailangang isulong ang pulitika ng pagbabago – sa eleksyon at sa iba’t iba pang larangan.
