GABRIELA welcomes the decision of Judge Trese Wenceslao to dismiss the murder cases and quash the arrest warrants against GABRIELA Chairperson Emerita and NAPC Lead Convenor Sec. Liza Largoza-Maza together with former Bayan Muna Reps. Satur Ocampo and Teddy Casiño, and former DAR Sec. Rafael Mariano.
The warrant was plainly part of the grand scheme of the Duterte regime to harass and silence critics in order to ram its tyrannical political and economic schemes on the throats of the Filipino people. The dismissal of the case is a clear victory of people standing together to smash such tyrannical schemes.
We must brace and be ready for more attacks on our democratic rights in the face of the plan to push forward the neoliberal agenda and resultant charter change proposal designed by Duterte’s imperialist masters in collaboration with his fascist military and economic planners.###
