The Filipino women and the people face a dark era with the three branches of government throwing their support to the declaration of the Mindanao-wide martial law, which has only wrought destruction in Marawi and enabled worse military-sponsored rights violations across Mindanao.

With the SC backing of martial law, the military will be emboldened to carry out aerial strikes, indiscriminate firing and in using rape as a tool of war against civilians.

4 February 2015 - “The Supreme Court’s decision on the Disbursement Acceleration Program, despite its modifications, is one that bolsters the people’s call for accountability. It is a significant step forward for the people who have been denied of much needed funds for social services for projects deemed to be in favor of the President’s allies. DAP was clearly used for political patronage.”

Gabriela solon calls for junking of EDCA on 23rd year of bases treaty rejection

16 September 2014 - On the 23rd anniversary of the rejection of the RP-US Bases Treaty, the Gabriela Women's Party (GWP) believed that the bases have in reality returned in a much worse form under the deceptively worded Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA) recently signed by the Aquino administration.

"Mas masahol pa sa ibinasurang RP-US Bases Treaty itong EDCA, kaya patuloy ang kababaihan sa paglaban dito at paggigiit sa Korte Suprema na ito ay labag sa Konstitusyon," GWP Representative Emmi De Jesus stated.
