Martial Law saved Filipinos from ‘Joma Sison, communist threats’ – Gadon

Martial Law saved Filipinos from ‘Joma Sison, communist threats’ – Gadon

HAD it not been for the declaration by former President Ferdinand E. Marcos Sr. of Martial Law in that fateful September 21, 1972, the Filipino people would have already been swallowed by the devilish plots orchestrated by Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founder Jose Maria ‘Joma’ Sison and Benigno ‘Ninoy’ Aquino Jr., according to hard-hitting and ‘Marcos’ loyalist Atty. Larry Gadon.

“Sobrang maraming salamat sa Martial Law, kay yumaong Pangulong Ferdinand Edralin Marcos Sr. sa kanyang pagkakadeklara nito noong panahong iyon dahil kung hindi ay t’yak nasakop na tayo ng mga komunista sa pangunguna ni Joma Sison,” said Gadon, a lone senatorial bet of elder Marcos’ Kilusang Bagong Lipunan last May 9 polls.

“Ang Martial Law ang nagsalbang sa sambayanang Pilipino sa kuko ng mga komunista sapagkat malawakan ang panggugulo nina Joma Sison at Ninoy Aquino noong panahong iyon sa kanilang pagtgatag ng New People’s Army at CPP,” he added.

He said it’s the right time to correct the history about Martial Law because it’s the right thing at the time and “those who think it’s bad are those who’re fighting the government for their selfish end while peace-loving people have welcomed it with open hand because they it’s proper to do against those who sowed terror in the 70s.”

Navoteños get ‘Navoahon’ aid

The Navotas City government has distributed livelihood assistance to more Navoteños severely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, according to Mayor John Rey Tiangco.

Some 766 beneficiaries received cash aid worth P1,000–P3,000 under the ‘NavoAhon Ayuda’ program. Of this, 400 were displaced workers; 105 delivery riders, and jeepney, tricycle and pedicab drivers; 21 jobseekers who graduated in 2020-2021; 60 entrepreneurs whose business were not allowed to operate during the heightened quarantine restrictions; and 180 new business owners.

“The number of Covid-19 cases is now declining. More Navoteños are now able to return to work and businesses have resumed operations. However, many are still struggling,” he said.

Another batch of beneficiaries is expected to be validated and provided with livelihood assistance next month.

The cash aid is part of a series of pandemic recovery programs that the city government has lined up for Navoteños.

In February and March this year, around 2,500 qualified individuals and business owners also received cash assistance under the program.
