abriela Women’s Party (GWP) described the P3.767-trillion 2018 national budget as a “demolition budget” with its heavy emphasis on big-ticket infrastructure projects under the Duterte administration’s “Build, Build, Build” (BBB) program.

Mr. Speaker, amid the military’s failure to substantiate its reports of rebellion across Mindanao and threats to public safety with factual basis, the martial law declaration itself stands out as the clear and present danger to the people of Mindanao. Martial law has licensed the full-blown militarist approach that has displaced over 300,000 families in Marawi and thousands more in other Mindanao provinces. Ibig sabihin lang, ang martial law ang pinakamalaking panganib at banta sa kaligtasan at karapatan ng ating mga kababayan.

Mr. Speaker, consistent ang representasyong ito sa pagtutol sa pagpapataw ng batas militar mula pa noong rehimeng Marcos. Magpahanggang ngayon, malinaw ang aking batayan sa posisyong ito. Sa bahagi ng Gabriela Women’s Party, kinokondena namin ang mga teroristang gawi ng ilang grupo sa Marawi. Subalit, naniniwala din kaming hindi solusyon ang todong militaristikong tugon sa nagaganap na kaguluhan sa Mindanao. Hindi nagapi ng halos isang dekadang imposisyon ng martial law sa ilalim ni Marcos ang sinasabing banta ng komunismo at rebelyong Moro.

#SONA2017 outfits of Gabriela Reps. Emmi De Jesus and Arlene Brosas bear anti-martial law, regular jobs calls

To show her ardent support in the fight for regularization of Endo workers, Gabriela Women's Party (GWP) Rep. Emmi De Jesus wears a barong bearing a "Regular Jobs Now" beadwork in today’s State of the Nation Address (SONA).

De Jesus is the principal author of HB 1045 or the Regular Employment Bill, a measure that seeks to ban contractualization.

Women marched today on the occasion of President Rodrigo Duterte’s second State of the Nation Address (SONA) to once more bring forward women’s demands for regular jobs and homes.

Gabriela Women’s Partylist (GWP) Reps. Emmi De Jesus and Arlene Brosas met with women from various sectors and urban poor communities to receive a letter which they hope to hand over to President Duterte when Congress hold session later this afternoon.

Gabriela Women’s Party (GWP) led today the filing of a House resolution seeking an inquiry on the subcontracting practice of SM malls and on the working conditions of SM workers amid the labor department’s failure to inspect the mall chain for labor standards violations.

In filing House Resolution 1121, GWP said it is urging the House Committee on Labor and Employment to investigate the contractualization in SM as the committee also tackles 24 measures on security of tenure and regular employment.

Party-list Gabriela Women’s Party (GWP) described the state of women under Duterte as being whacked by the double whammy of the continuation of neoliberal or pro-business policies and the rising tide of fascism especially with the looming extension of martial law in Mindanao. “One year has lapsed under President Duterte and yet neoliberal policies, such as contractualization, remain in full swing and women remain victims of rights violations by the AFP and the PNP,” said GWP Rep.

Gabriela Women’s Party, together with other women’s groups, held a protest in front of Camp Aguinaldo on Friday morning to express outrage over the military’s excessive use of force and rights violations in Mindanao with the martial law declaration as cover.

Gabriela Women’s Party (GWP) on Wednesday filed a resolution seeking a congressional inquiry on the military’s excessive use of force in North Cotabato and Bukidnon that resulted in human rights violations and massive displacement of families, a day after the high court upheld the Mindanao-wide martial law declaration.

In House Resolution No. 1113, GWP is urging the House Committee on Human Rights to launch an inquiry on the airstrikes, shelling, and burning of houses by members of the Philippine Army’s 39th and 72nd Infantry Battalion in North Cotabato and Bukidnon.
