Renato Reyes: Public servants labeled “communist” by haters has done more for the country

Renato Reyes Jr., Secretary General of the Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (BAYAN), has had it with people just carelessly labelling people as “communist” and “terrorist”, particularly people in congress that belong to progressive groups and organizations.

Reyes says that the people being labelled as “communist” and “terrorists” are even more likely the ones who have done the most in terms of creating laws that benefit the Filipino people and the country.

He adds that these people do not even have any record of corruption or anything that is considered illegal or not beneficial for the Filipino people.



"Walang rekord ng kurapsyon ang mga militanteng mambabatas. Marami sa kanila ay laging nasa listahan ng pinakamahirap na representante," Reyes said.

He even says that these progressive representatives in the congress are even the ones who are considered one of the poorest in their profession.

More than that, these people have assured that they worked hard for the country. He also goes on to say that these groups have not been receiving PDAF since 2013, even before it was banned by the Supreme Court.

"Oo nga pala, mula 2013 ay hindi na sila tumanggap ng "pork barrel funds" o PDAF, bago pa man ito ipagbawal ng Korte Suprema. Maaring i-check yan sa records ng Kamara," Reyes said.

Reyes says that people cannot just go on to assume that Makabayan did not pass any laws, they should show evidence, he says.



Hindi yung puro paratang lang sa Facebook pero wala namang maipakitang pruweba. Napakadali po na hanapin sa records ng Kamara ang mga naipasang batas. Bigyan ko kayo ng halimbawa: batas sa dagdag SSS pension, libreng edukasyon at extended maternity leave,” Reyes says.

It is quite easy to go on and accuse people, Reyes says. It’s even easier to attempt to destroy them and influence other people with biases and prejudice, he says.

Ending his post, Reyes calls on the people to talk about the issues and not just destroy and insult each other.

“Isang pakiusap

Yung pinaparatangan na "komunista" at "terorista" sa Kongreso na mga partylist groups ay di hamak na mas maraming naipasang batas at nagawang mabuti para sa bayan kesa dun sa mga nagpaparatang. Sa totoo lang.

Walang rekord ng kurapsyon ang mga militanteng mambabatas. Marami sa kanila ay laging nasa listahan ng pinakamahirap na representante. Ang yumaong si Rep. Crispin Beltran, namatay na mahirap habang nasa Kamara. Sina Ka Paeng at Ka Pando, laging nasa listahan ng pinakamahirap na mambabatas. Si Sarah Elago, isa rin sa mahihirap na mambabatas. 

Kung may patunay kayo ng kurapsyon, ipakita nyo. Sampahan nyo sila ng kasong graft o plunder. Go ahead. Pero tiyakin nyo muna na may ebidensya. Kung wala naman, itigil na po natin ang paninira. Isyu na lang ang pag-usapan. Yun ang inaantay ng mga kababayan natin, programa.

Oo nga pala, mula 2013 ay hindi na sila tumanggap ng "pork barrel funds" o PDAF, bago pa man ito ipagbawal ng Korte Suprema. Maaring i-check yan sa records ng Kamara.

Kung may patunay kayo na nagtamad-tamaran lang ang Makabayan at walang naipasang batas mula pa 2001, ipakita po natin ang ebidesya. Hindi yung puro paratang lang sa Facebook pero wala namang maipakitang pruweba. Napakadali po na hanapin sa records ng Kamara ang mga naipasang batas. 

Bigyan ko kayo ng halimbawa: batas sa dagdag SSS pension, libreng edukasyon at extended maternity leave.

Madaling mag-akusa at manira, at sakyan ang mga biases at prejudice ng mga tao. Pero mas mahirap yung magpalaman sa mga akusasyong walang batayan. Mas mahirap na seryosong magtalakayan hinggil sa mga problema ng bayan at maghain ng solusyon.

Subukan po natin na mag-usap ng isyu, hindi lang po paninira. May mas malalaking problema ang bansa natin na nangangailangan ng seryosong tugon. Dun natin ibuhos ang ating atensyon.”
