Black Friday Bulletin #9 - Victory Celebration for the Black Friday Protest

Yesterday, the Supreme Court yet again rebuked the GMA administration when it ruled unconstitutional the warrantless arrest of protesters, the forcible breakup of rallies, and the illegal raid of the Tribune under cover of PP 1017.

This reaffirms what we have been saying all along - that GMA's continuing and escalating acts of repression are illegal.

You will recall that this movement was birthed on March 1 and was named Black Friday protest to mourn the death of democracy as symbolized by the declaration of PP 1017 last February 24 - a dark Friday in the history of our nation. With the trashing of EO 464, CPR, and now - PP 1017 by the Supreme Court, the objects of protest of this movement have now been effectively vanquished. And the Black Friday protest movement has outlived its purpose.

We declare victory!

Next Friday (May 12), we invite everyone who has participated in at least one Black Friday protest activity to join us in our victory celebration (details will be announced in a separate email). We will formally close the Black Friday Protest Movement.

But the fight goes on.

In the same forum, we will announce Black and White Movement's planned protest actions against GMA's ChaCha, whether through ConAss or through an illegitimate "people's initiative". We will also present our plans to promote the call for snap elections. We will not stop until truth and justice once again prevail upon this nation.

Patalsikin na! Now na!

God bless,

The "black friday protests" never helped in the results. Whether you did it or not it doesn't matter. Stop the delusions by saying "Victory Celebration for the Black Friday Protest" and saying things as if your "kabaduyans" had any influence in the outcome. I think you even did more harm to the Anti-Arroyo side of the fence than good. Kahiya hiya kayo. Now na.
