As in the ‘Oust Estrada’ campaign, there is now a flurry of new groups calling for Gloria’s removal.
The mother-of-all anti-Arroyo groups is the Gloria Step Down Movement or GSM – as in Galit sa Magnanakaw or Galit sa Mandaraya. GSM of course appeals to the young (GSM technology in cellphones) and the old (what else but Ginebra San Miguel).
The youth sector is not contented with Youth DARE or Demanding Arroyo’s Removal. UP students has SIGAO as in Student Initiative for Gloria Arroyo’s Ouster. PUP boasts of YANIG as in Youth Action Network to impeach Gloria.
Txtpower has GARCI or Gloria Arroyo Resign Campaign Initiative. LFS wants to SCREAM or Students Campaign to Remove Arroyo in Malacañang. Make way for Anakbayan’s KALAMPAG or Kabataang Lumalaban para Patalsikin si Gloria.
The UP community is already AWARE as in an Alliance working for Arroyo’s Removal. PNU wants to be AWARE Now! Cagayan de Oro students formed the YOU GO as in Youth for Gloria’s Ouster. Davao students has KADASIG as in Kabataang Dabawenyo Sigaw!
Gabriela is spearheading the WOMEN MARCH! or the Women’s Movement for Arroyo’s Removal and Regime Change. Migrant workers have OUTRAGE or Overseas Workers and their families United to Remove Gloria Arroyo. Peasants want to REMOVE GLORIA or the Rural Movement for the Removal of Gloria.
There is also STOP Gloria or Southern Tagalog opposed to Gloria. Environmentalists have reason to be ENRAGED while doctors are already calling Emergency RX for GMA.
Malaya’s editorial has a funny new meaning for GLORIA. If we jumble the letters we could have Go Liar!
A much needed break: While having lunch with fellow street parliamentarians, someone proposed a coalition to tackle corruption. Why not KULANGOT as in Koalisyon laban sa Nangungurakot? Then one of us replied that a better name would be KULANGOT sa PADER as in Koalisyon laban sa Nangungurakot para sa Pambansang Demokrasya.
