Labor to campaign
against Cha-cha
BY CARLA P. GOMEZ

 

Labor groups in Negros are launching acampaign against Charter Change, Wennie Sancho, secretary general of the General Alliance of Workers Associations, said yesterday.

The voice of the people should reign supreme because sovereignty resides in the people, he said.

“The people’s interest should not be dwarfed or narrowed down under the sway of a political leader surrounded by a cabal of bootlickers,” Sancho added.

“Amending the Constitution requires serious deliberation based on contending views, not just from a mere collection of yes men,” he said.

He called on those opposed to Cha-cha to speak up now and not wait until the last minute. Waiting until it is time to ratify the proposed Cha-cha move will be too late, Sancho said.

He warned that if the public is not vigilant, changes made will benefit incumbent political leaders and perpetuate the vested interests of political dynasties.*CPG
