Muslims condemn ‘sellout’ to Malaysia (Manila Standard Today)
SOME 300 militant student activists, women and indigenous people joined their Muslim brothers and sisters in the Philippine Council for Islam and Democracy in accusing President Aquino of “selling out” the Sultanate of Sulu to Malaysia.
The protesters stormed Mendiola near Malacanang and denounced the President for committing treason as he allegedly did nothing when the Malaysian forces attacked the Filipinos in Sabah.
“(The President) essentially gave the green light to the Malaysian government to proceed and massacre the Filipinos in Sabah. This is unforgivable, blood is (in) his hands,” Vencer Crisostomo, Anakbayan chairman, said.
“The Aquino administration should share the liability for the bloody end of the standoff in Sabah for its noynoying on the grievances of Filipinos,” Kabataan President Terry Ridon said.
Members of the PCID, Anakbayan, Kabataan, Migrante, Katribu, Bagong Alyansang Makabayan, Bayan Muna, Gabriela and Kadamay marched to Mendiola around 10:30 a.m., with Muslim women dressed in abaya and hijab as frontliners to air their protests.
