While a certain PNoy was delivering his SONA this afternoon which seems to describe another country being ruled by the devil, a certain Gloria and her alipores, some 3,500 protesters from the workers, peasants, students, women and government employees, marched the streets and rallied at the Capitol Ground, Iloilo City to deliver their own SONA which seems to describe more accurately the Philippine reality.
Military abuses and human rights violations are still rampant. Life is still harsh. Jobs are scarce and salaries below starvation wages.
The Philippines still remains a semi-colony of the US and its people grovelling in poverty.
That is happening because this certain PNoy is following the “tuwad na landas” instead of “tuwid” (Tagalog for “straight”).
“Tuwad” in both Hiligaynon and Kinaray-a means crouching position with one’s butt up high.
