“US basing agreement to make calvary of the Filipino people even more tormenting� – NUPL | www.nupl.net

NUPL president Neri Colmenares, also Bayan Muna representative, warned the Philippine government that it could be held accountable under international law should the US use its military facilities in the Philippines to commit aggression in other countries.
"We learned during the Congress that the US is also expanding its bases in Japan. During the IADL discussions, it was made clear by many legal luminaries attending the Congressthat the crime of aggression does not only attach to the US but also the country that allows the use of its territory to attack other countries. While we condemn China's agressive acts in the West Philippine Sea, we will not tolerate aggressive acts of the US which will subject the Filipino people to retaliatory attacks by the many enemies of the US," said Rep. Colmenares. Neri Javier Colmenares NUPL President +639178350459

Bayan Muna party-list Representative and NUPL president Neri Colmenares scored the Aquino administration for not providing enough assistance to OFWs who are facing criminal charges abroad by not approving the expansion of legal assistance fund.
During the deliberations for 2015 national budget, Congress increased the legal assistance fund to P100 million from P30 million but Malacanang, in its veto message, placed it under appropriations approved for conditional implementation, citing lack of income sources for the creation of the special fund. Colmenares questioned why it was so hard for the Aquino administration to increase the fund, noting that migrant workers were able to remit around $27 billion in the country last year. "You sent them (OFWs) to other countries, you call them new heroes. In 2014, $26.9 billion were remitted by OFWs in the Philippines and yet, you would say you don't have funds when they are in danger? What kind of government is that? Colmenares said. "Mary Jane's story is a story of failure of government to provide fund, to serve them," he added.
