The stance of the Makati Business Club merited a strong response from Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles of the the FB page Luminous by Trixie Cruz-Angeles & Ahmed Paglinawan.
Atty. Trixie Angeles said that if you take a closer look at history since 9-11, you will notice that the victims of terrorism in the Philippines are mostly the poor.
Kung susuriing mabuti ang kasaysayan mula noong 9-11, mapapansin na ang palaging naging biktima ng terorismo sa Pilipinas ay pawang mahihirap.
Atty. Trixie Angeles went on to enumerate several terror acts that happened in the country to illustrate her point.
Andyan yung Rizal Day bombing. Sasa wharf bombing, Davao Bus station bombing, Davao Market bombing, Jolo church bombing, mga pinupugutan ng ulo ng ASG…
Atty. Trixie Angeles asked netizens if it isn’t very obvious that no oligarchs were victims of terrorism? No one from Makati, BGC and many other affluent addresses or even from Eastwood were victims of terrorist attacks.
Halata ba na walang oligarch na biktima ng terorismo? Walang taga-Makati, BGC, Alabang, PhilamLife, La Vista, o kahit sa Eastwood man lamang.
In other words, the poor are direct beneficiaries if the anti-terror bill is passed into law.
Samakatwid, ang mga mahihirap ang direktang makikinabang sa batas na ito.
And of course, Atty. Trixie Angeles asked netizens what do they call people who are against such bill? What do you call the elitist bourgeois?
At syempre, ang mga tutol dito ay ano pa nga ba? Ano nga bang tawag nila sa mga burgis na elitistang ganyan?
“Anti-Poor ba yun?” Atty. Trixie Angeles asked again.
Atty. Trixie Angeles remarked that it’s because these mestizo snakes are safe and sound at their respectives mansions. That’s is why, every issue that surfaces merited their attention, just to force their selfish luxury.
Palibhasa, payapa at ligtas itong mga mestisong ulupong na to sa kanilang mga mansyon. Kaya kahit ano na lang, pinapatulan, maipilit lang ang luhong makasarili.
Atty. Trixie Angeles said these people don’t care about the poor, correct? she asked.
Pakelam nga naman ba nila sa mahihirap, ano?
