LUMABAN-Bikol on the renewed talks of charter change
Charter change, may the prefix be economic or political, is but any regime’s desperate attempt to secure its power. It is never meant to solve the pandemic, corruption or any deep-rooted problem in governance and our society. Rather, it is meant to aggravate that crisis. Once the constitutional assembly is formed, all control over the amendments and insertions will be committed by Congress. The so-called august bodyhas proven itself to be a very servile rubberstamp of the US-Duterte regime’s fascist and neoliberal programs. With only over a year left before Duterte bids Malacanang goodbye, it becomes more crucial than ever for the people to relentlessly resist and fight further attempts for charter change.
