The Philippine Patriotic Movement Talks About Alternative National Recovery Plan and 2022 National Election



A few months from now the Duterte administration will be ending its term and up to now, the country is filled with uncertainties because of the pandemic caused by the COVID19. A large portion of the marginalized sectors is greatly affected by the current situation. To add up to these worries, the 2022 National Election is just months away. With this, concerned organizations from different sectors convened together to form a coalition that will push for an alternative roadmap for the National Recovery Plan, thus, the Philippine Patriotic Movement is born.

Last February 15, 2021, a media conference was held at one of the restaurants in Quezon City. Present during the conference are Lorenzo "Boots" Cadswan, National President of Filipinos for Peace, Justice and Progress Movement (FPJPM); Cynthia Villarin, National Secretary General of People's Movement Against Poverty (PMAP); Geornel Haresco, Assistant National Secretary of Federation of Jeepney Operators and Drivers Association of the Philippines (FEJODAP); David "Dave" Diwa, Labor Leader of National Labor Union (NLU); and Eleuterio "Terry" Tuazon, National President of Philippine Association of Free Labor Union (PAFLU). These are the convenors who declared the call for an Alternative National Recovery Plan and challenges all aspiring candidates for the 2022 National Election.

During the conference, it is even quoted about the warning from President Duterte stating that the 'economy is sinking.' That is why they are pushing for a candidate who will address the National Recovery program. Part of their statement signifies support to candidates who can address these (5) Social Agendas.
