#NoToChaCha: Bakuna Muna, Huwag ChaCha, Meron Pang Pandemya, Ano Kayo Pabida?

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Why the sudden clamor for Charter Change? Is it because elections are nearing and the number of Gen Z and millennial voters is threatening? 

How to stay in power- What are the chances this initiative's right before election. The intention is as clear as day regardless of how they defend it.

A change in constitution a year before presidential elections? What a way to keep this fascist regime in power. 

This renewed proposal for ChaCha to purportedly amend the economic provisions of the 1987 Constitution is also a rehashed attempt to extend the term limits of politicians and elected officials, including Duterte.

Either that or they will intentionally extend the quarantine to the point that they could declare a No Election in 2022.

Charter change hearings resume on January 13. We are still in the middle of a pandemic and an economic crisis. We are still without a vaccine. So how will Charter change solve these problems? It won’t. Stop misleading the public.

Wala pa ngang klarong action plan sa covid tapos cha cha pa naisip? Concentrate po muna tayo sa vaccine distribution before anything else.

Charter change is being pushed by the government. Changes in our constitution can be beneficial BUT the timing of pushing this agenda is so SKETCHY and UNTIMELY.

Based on how Duterte measures were recently accelerated in the Senate and House, there is high probability that charter change train will be railroaded using his supermajority control of the rubberstamp congress."

We are rational citizens. 'Wag na tayong magpaloko pa. Let's use all we have (e.g. social media accounts) to influence more people. 

But we don't really need to change the Charter, what we need is to change the LEADER.

How can we even trust a leader who is a known, mysogynist, human rights violator and bias. This decaying man’s lust for power is equally responsible and the cause of death of many in the country that he swore to take care of. 

No to Duterte staying in power beyond 2022. Many believe he has committed so many sins which the entire country has suffered from.

They are using  the ChaCha card to save themselves from public outrage, extend their lifeline to remain in power beyond 2022.

Duterte and his allies in Senate and Congress are resurrecting Charter Change proposals in a desperate attempt to deflect the public's attention to more pressing issues like the COVID-19 vaccination, rising inflation, absence of an economic stimulus.

It is clear that this country needs a change of leaders rather than the constitution itself. There are tons of things that are yet to be solved, corruption, poverty, injustices. 

YES TO REGIME CHANGE but no to chacha.  We need a fresh, inspiring, decent, unifying, god-fearing, active and competent leader to run our nation.

Don’t be deceived by selective or limited Charter change supposedly involving only economic provisions. Once the Constituent Assembly is convened, anything goes. All options are on the table including amendments to term limits and the cancellation of the elections. 

Charter Change is not the solution for our economic crisis. It won't save us. The government is just using this to save themselves from the upcoming election. This is their way to extend their power. Wala na kasi silang pag-asa sa Election 2022.

Charter change doesn't even make sense right now. It looks like someone is just trying to prolong his term knowing that people wouldn't trust him enough to continue using their power.


It's funny how the current administration is using their power in order to extend their terms in the amidst of pandemic. Natatakot ba sila sa sarili nilang multo? 

We are in the middle of pandemic with no vaccine, and tons of unsolved issues. There"s still the impunity among our authorities, and the many other atrocities left unresolved while new issues arise almost everyday.

That government officials are trying to tackle Charter Change in the middle of a pandemic clearly shows what their primary concern is, and clearly, it is not the people’s welfare.

Constitutional reform is needed but I don't trust this government the way I don't trust the Philippine justice system so #NoToChaCha 

Kung Federal Government na pinangako last 2016 eh inumpisahan na bandang 2017-18, transition na sana ngayon. Election year na next year.

Impractical, and insensitive to be doing this in the middle of the pandemic and econ crisis. We dont need Cha-Cha, we need a genuine legislated economic stimulus program, we need cheap & effective vaccines, we need legislation that would provide aid to the working people.

Cha-Cha, federalism, term extension are not a panacea to COVID-19!

ChaCha would only mean three things for Filipinos -- further plunder of our local economy and natural resources, term extension for public officials, including Duterte, and outright violation of human rights.

Ang gusto ko, ChaCha as a dance, hindi ChaCha as an instrument of desperation in power!


Why #NoToChaCha?

1) It seeks removal of nationalist economic provisions in favor of further neoliberalization. This will further destroy local agriculture & MSMEs, and worsen our import dependence. 

2) Suspension of the upcoming election & consequent term extension is a possibility as it has been part of their agenda in earlier Cha-Cha efforts. 

3) Untimely shift to federalism that does not address fundamental political and economic questions would not resolve problems of inefficient governance and unequal development. 

4) It is costly, impractical, and insensitive to be doing this in the middle of the pandemic and econ crisis. We dont need Cha-Cha, we need a genuine legislated economic stimulus program, we need cheap & effective vaccines, we need legislation that would provide aid to the working people. 

Charter change can’t solve this pandemic nor can it satisfy one’s hunger. 

It’s nothing but another scheme of this government to perpetuate their negligence and to legalize the human rights violations they commit.
