CDIR Expects Surge Of Anti-Immigrant Scape-Goating

CDIR-USA | The Coalition In Defense of Immigrant Rights (CDIR)-USA expects a high tide or a surge of anti-immigrant scape-goating in the face of the current economic recession in the United States.

The CDIR-USA coordinator Arturo P. Garcia also expressed alarm over the move of anti-immigrant lobbyist Ward Connelly, the author of the infamous Proposition 209 in California to put into ballot initiative in five states propositions about race and gender equality. The ballot measures will have better chances of winning in those states like Arizona, Missouri and Colorado with high anti-immigrant bias and forces. more...  0 Comments

The guaranteed minimum income will be something you get as a citizen, something you can depend on." more...  0 Comments

AJLPP Condemns US FAA Decision on the Philippines

AJLPP-NY | The United States authorities never have any qualms in treating their puppets for being what they are. They always insult their puppets treat them as ignorant vassals. In the process they earn the greatest contempt from all true Filipino patriots.

The Alliance for Just and Lasting Peace in the Philippines (AJLPP) – USA strongly condemn the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) decision to downgrade the Philippines to category 2. The true reason for the downgrade is business. Although the reason cited was for the ineptitude of Philippine authorities.

While the reason might be true, the downgrade will result in the U.S. authorities to refuse to grant PAL expansion to the eastern cities like New York, Chicago, Texas, Boston and Florida. This is to get back for the Philippines refusal to give flying rights to Philippine cities. In the end, its is the Filipinos in America who will suffer and who cannot fly with their own flag carrier.
