‘Hindi Praktikal ang mga Infrastructure Projects!’ – IBON Foundation

Para kay IBON Foundation Executive Director Sonny Africa, hindi raw practikal ang mga infrastructure projects lalo na sa panahon ng pandemiya na dulot ng COVID-19. Mas mainam daw na ilaan ang pondo sa mga may sakit.

“‘Yang Build, Build Build na iyan ‘yan actually ay nakakagigil ‘yan kasi because of the pandemic, hindi lang sa Philippines, even globally marami sa infrastructure projects na iyan ay hindi na viable. It makes sense na ‘yung mga road or airport project na pang-tourism sector, ipaubaya muna rito sa mas kiinakailangan na may mga sakit ngayon,” boladas ni Africa.

Halos ganito rin ang naging patutsada ni Gabriela Partylist COngresswoman Arlene Brosas sa mga magandang hangarin ng pamahalaan.

“President Duterte’s Build Build Build program is no different from Marcos’ ‘golden age of infrastructure’ – both were debt bombs for the poverty-stricken Filipino who are still reeling from the recession… Dinala tayo sa krisis sa ekonomiya ng militaristang pagpapatakbo ng gobyerno at dadalhin pa tayo nito lalo sa mas malalang krisis dahil sa kaliwa’t kanang utang nito,” kuda ni Brosas.

Magugunita na kinasuhan ng IBON Foundation si Presidential Communication Operation Office Usec. Lorraine Badoy, Secretary Hermogenes Esperon at Major General Antonio Parlade, Jr dahil inuugnay sila ng mga nasabing opisyalsa mga makakaliwa at pagtawag sa kanila na mga terorista.

Pero nanindigan si Usec. Badoy sa mga naging pahayag niya laban sa IBON Foundation.

“The National United Front Commission (NUFC), whose main mandates are the mobilization of various sectors, alliance building in urban centers and the infiltration of government through the party-list group.

This is where IBON can be found: under the NUFC that is directly under the CPP.

IBON Foundation and IBON Philippines (plus IBON International) are projects of the Communist Party of the Philippines’ Central Committee created during the Marcos years to churn out propaganda under the pretext of ‘research and advocacy’ anchored supposedly on neutral and scientific data,” sabi ni Badoy
