ABS-CBNNews.com reports that "women’s group Gabriela called President Aquino the ’number 1 U.S. puppet’ and claimed that the state of women under his administration is getting worse."

 

The report further noted: "Ian Arevallo, chairperson of Gabriela NCR, said that while the President has been trumpeting the supposed economic gains of his administration, these have not been felt by the common Filipina." Arevalo also added that "Aquino has been following the dictates of the United States in running the economy, pushing for further liberalization and privatization that do not benefit ordinary citizens." Arevalo made the statements while a number of protesters "held a picket at the Mendiola bridge in Manila as part of their series of activities for Women’s Month."
