MANILA, Philippines – Ngayon pa lamang ay hinimok na ng Makabayan Bloc ang Marcos administration na maglatag na ng contingency plan para sa mga Overseas Filipino workers(OFWs) sakaling umigting pa ang tensyon sa pagitan ng China at Taiwan.

“We, in the Makabayan coalition, strongly demand an end to the provocative actions and aggressions by the US and China over Taiwan. These unsettling developments certainly do not bode well for the Philippines, which is a few miles south of Taiwan, and for Filipinos working in Taiwan which are estimated at 160,000. We urge the Marcos Jr. administration to come up with a contingency plan for Filipinos in Taiwan should the current situation escalate into a standoff,” ayon sa Makabayan Bloc.

Ayon sa grupo ang aksyon ng US at China ay pawang “provocative” na maaaring magbigay daan para umusbong ang kaguluhan sa Asia Pacific region.

“We warn the US against using Philippine territories as launchpad and transit zones for further provocative actions.Pursuing peaceful and diplomatic means to resolve standing issues should be the way forward,”giit pang grupo na kinabibilangan nina Representatives France Castro ng ACT Teachers, Arlene Brosas ng Gabriela at Raoul Manuel Kabataan Partylist.
