Maging sa mismong Kamara ay matatag din ang paninindigan ng mga kontra rito at kahit umano magpalit pa ito ng pangalan, mapa-ConAss man o mapa-ConCon, ay hindi pa rin ito kakagatin ng tao.
Ang tinutukoy ni Gab riela partylist Rep. Liza Maza ay ang pagpihit ng mga kasamang mambabatas sa Kamara na idaan sa Constitutional Convention (ConCon) sa halip na ituloy ang naunang pina borang paraan na Consti tuent Assembly (ConAss).
“Whatever they call it, whether it’s Con-Ass or Con-con, the fact remains that the Filipino people oppose charter change under the Arroyo government. Once and for all, they should stop all this name game.”
Thus said Rep.Liza Maza of Gabriela Women’s Party today as GMA’s allies in the House of Representatives stir up efforts to amend the 1987 Constitution, this time through a Constitutional Convention (Con-con).
MANILA — The State of the Nation Address (Sona) in many years has
become a fashion event for legislators, their spouses and families.
Touted to celebrate local fashion, even the media makes a staple of it
and allots a special place in their coverage to have the attendees
explain their outfits in a red carpet spectacle. Strangely, there has
been no respite in this kind of ritual and excessive display even if
the rest of the country is in deep poverty and the government itself
purportedly urging austerity measures. read more »

Pero ang pinaka-bonggang bongga talaga kahapon ay si Representative Lisa Maza
dahil nasapawan niya ang mga naggagandahang gowns ng mga senadora.
Bakit kamo? Kasi, she was a show-stopper with her mocking hand painted
image of the President! Hmmm, buti hindi siya pinalabas ng Batasang
Pambansa ano? read more »
MANILA, Philippines—Rain soaked a 12-foot effigy of a decaying President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo on a full-steam bulldozer running over the Constitution, but militants nonetheless sent the protest centerpiece up in flames on Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City, before the start of her State of the Nation Address (SONA). read more »
Sa mga datos namang ibinigay ng
Pangulo na anito’y nagpapakitang umuunlad ang Pilipinas sa ilalim ng
kanyang administrasyon, nangibabaw muli ang pagdududa. Ayon kay Gabriela party-list Rep. Liza Maza, hanggang sa panghuling
SONA ay puro kasinunga-lingan pa rin ang iniuulat ni Mrs. Arroyo. “A string of lies. It’s a pity that in her last SONA, she still didn’t
tell the truth about the real situation of our country,” ani Maza. read more »
Gabriela Rep. Liza Maza appeared in a beaded gown, hand-painted with
the President’s image and embroidered with the word con-ass made of a
katsa cloth ( flour sack ) and handpainted by social realism artist Boy
Dominguez. The gown, according to her the gown represents the real
state of the nation. Truly, its not just a State of the Nation Address
but also a Fashion State of this year as it also represents different
expressions of themselves in public. read more »
