Reihana Mohideen discusses the May 9 election result in the Philippines, which saw the consolidation of rule by political dynasties and clans under the former Rodrigo Duterte regime.
Partido Lakas ng Masa representative Reihana Mohideen speaks to Green Left about the national elections in the Philippines.
The May 9 national elections in the Philippines are taking place as the country reels under the blows of multiple system crises — climate, economic and social — compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic, writes Reihana Mohideen.
The intensification of multiple, intersecting crises under capitalism, which are disproportionately affecting women, requires a united struggle against them, writes Reihana Mohideen.
Long-time feminist and socialist Reihana Mohideen on the dire situation in the Philippines, where workers in the informal sector and the urban poor are bearing the brunt of a woefully inadequate health response by the Rodrigo Duterte regime.
President Rodrigo Duterte’s strong-armed response to the COVID-19 pandemic contrasts with its failure to deliver basic public services, including healthcare, to the people, writes Reihana Mohideen.
The burial of former dictator Ferdinand Marcos at the Heroes’ Cemetery (Libingan ng mga Bayani — LNMB) was hurriedly and secretively carried out, with military-style logistical support.
Marcos ruled the Philippines from 1965 until he was overthrown in the Peoples Power EDSA Uprising of 1986. He died in exile in the US three years later.
