Para sa chairperson ng isang labor group, inaatake lang daw ni Pangulong Rodrigo Roa Duterte ang ABS-CBN, Maynilad, Manila Waters dahil papalitan lang daw ito ni Pangulong Duterte ng mga bagong oligarko ka-alyado ng Presidente.
Magugunita na ilang beses na nagbabala si Pangulong Duterte na hindi ire-renew ang prangkisa ng ABS-CBN. Ilan sa mga kasalanan umano ng ABS-CBN ay ang hindi pag-e-ere ng kayang campaign advertisement noong halalan 2016 kahit na tinaggap daw ang kanyang bayad. Umutang din daw ang ABS-CBN sa Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) kaya daw nalugi ang DBP.
Binanatan naman ni Pangulong Duterte ang mga water concessionaire companies dahil sa diumano’y tagilid na kontratang pinasok nito sa mga nakaraang gobyerno.
“Right now, the regime is already attacking the owners of Maynilad, Manila Water, ABS-CBN, and others, but his intention is not to empower the workers of the state vis-a-vis these oligarchs but only to replace them with his own set of oligarchs,” sabi ni National COnfederation of Labor Attorney Ernie Arellano.
Banat pa ni Arellano, dapat daw maghanda sa isang malaking laban ang mga manggagawa.
“These new crony capitalist, which was assured protection by Duterte’s political coalition with their charter change proposal, would probably be even less concerned on labor rights thatn the tycoons they will replace, so workers should prep for a bigger fight,” dagdag pa ni Arellano.
Narito naman po ang reaksyon ng ilang kababayan natin sa pinagsasabi ni Arellano.
“Everything is a possibility. That is why we need to be vigilant. But every positive steps this government is undertaking rigth now seems to be geared for the empowerment of our battered nation and its people. Truly we are obliged to support the valiant effort of this government “to slay the giants” who were eating up the system bigtime since time immemorial. Somebody just lately said, “it is a war of narratives, it will be our choice whose narratives we will listen to”. Happy new year everyone,” sabi ni E. Mondejar.
“Kahit ano pa gawin nyo, HINDING HINDI NYO KAYA MAPANIWALA ANG MGA TAO.. matatalino na ang mga Pilipino ngayon,” sabi ni R. Carandang.
