LUMALAPIT ANG ELEKSYON, TUMITINDI ANG PATAYAN AT KARAHASAN

AJLPP-New York | Wala nang tatalo pa sa pagkagarapal ng Rehimeng US-Arroyo. Mula sa panuhuhol, panadaraya at lalo na sa karahasan, dinaig na nito ang pasistang rehimeng US-Marcos sa pagiging makapal ng mukha at pagiging manhid lalo na sa pagkunwari.

Dahil dito muling nanawagan ang AJLPP sa mga mamamayan ng Pilipinas na dapat pag-ibayuhin ang pagmamatyag at pagbabantay laban sa karahasan at pandaraya .

Lubhang ikinababahala ng AJLPP ang pagdami ng mga insidente ng karahasan at ang lantaran at garapalang paggamit ng gobyerno ng suhol sa masa.

Judy Miller - From Pimping for Rumsfeld to Defaming Activists

Aluminum Tubes | Although I am devoted to the First Amendment and privacy rights, and believe that effective judicial and administrative oversight is critical to preventing police abuses, I also want the NYPD to have the tools and programs to protect the city from terrorist attacks. If that means scanning the Internet and sending plainclothes officers to public meetings to learn about planned actions that might turn violent, or be infiltrated and taken over by violent dissidents, so be it. Unfortunately, the current controversy is already making other police departments wary of following the NYPD's effective tactics. more...  4 Comments
