"Extra-constitutional solutions are not necessarily unconstitutional. If President GMA refuses to resign, the option of ousting her from office is valid," Ronald Llamas, AKBAYAN President, said. AKBAYAN insists that the President has already lost the moral ascendancy and legitimacy to govern. "She has continuously refused to speak categorically on the allegations of electoral fraud and the truth behind the 'Hello Garci' tapes. Instead, she would rather allow her minions spin the truth and maximize the flaws of existing political institutions to mitigate the accountability being demanded by the people from the President," Llamas added. Llamas also rejected the formula for charter change that former President FVR is proposing. "No credible system change will happen under the GMA regime. The FVR proposal is not only silent on the future of GMA, which means that they are willing to let her go just to secure their own political interests. More importantly, it is curiously silent on how we can deepen the accountabilities of all public officials. They focused instead on how to institutionalize neoliberalism as the constitutional economic framework, the same policies that has worsened poverty in the country and widened the divide between the rich and the poor," Llamas said. AKBAYAN joined the hundreds of thousands of protestors calling for President GMA's removal from office. AKBAYAN vowed that it will launch more protest activities in the future. http://www.akbayan.org _____________________________________________________ Akbayan is a member organization of LABAN NG MASA (Fight of the Masses): Chairperson Dr. Francisco Nemenzo, Jr. National Council and Initial Members AKBAYAN! - http://www.akbayan.org/ Alab Katipunan All Moro Alliance of Progessive Labor (APL) - http://www.apl.org.ph/ Anak Mindanao (AMIN) Alyansa ng Sambayanan para sa Pagbabago (ASAP) Bangsamoro People’s Bureau Bukluran ng Manggagawang Pilipino (BMP) - http://www.geocities.com/bukluran Bukluran sa Sosyalistang Isip at Gawa (BISIG) Coalition Against Trafficking in Women - Asia-Pacific (CATW-AP) Confreedem FilDem Freedom from Debt Coalition (FDC) - http://www.freedomfromdebtcoalition.org/ KALAYAAN! - http://www.geocities.com/makakalayaan KASAMA Kilusang Mangingisda Kilusan para sa Pambansang Demokrasya (KPD) Kongreso ng Maralitang Mamamayan para sa Kalayaan (KOMPAK) Kongreso ng Pagkakaisa ng Manggagawa sa Pilipinas (KPMP) League of Urban Poor for Action (LUPA) Liga Manggagawa Manggagawa para sa Kalayaan ng Bayan (MAKABAYAN) Movement for the Advancement of Student Power (MASP) Padayon - http://www.philsol.nl/org/padayon/programa-set99.htm Pambansang Kaisahan ng Magbubukid sa Pilipinas (PKMP) Pambansang Katipunan ng Makabayang Magbubukid (PKMM) Pambansang Katipunan ng mga Samahan sa Kanayunan (PKSK) Pandayan Partido ng Manggagawa (PM) - http://partidongmanggagawa.org.ph/ PhilNet-RDI Resource Center for People’s Development (RCPD) Sanlakas - http://www.geocities.com/sanlakasonline/index.html UMALAB KA Ugnayan ng mga Nagsasariling Lokal na Organisasyon sa Kanayunan (UNORKA) Individual members Prof. Randy David Fr.
