New group Laban ng Masa opposes 'brutal, pro-elite' Duterte

In his interview during Laban ng Masa's launch at the University of the Philippines-Diliman. Belo pointed out that thousands, mostly poor, have been killed in the anti-drug campaign of President Duterte.

Belo said, "Iyung retorika niya ay pangmasa raw siya, pero ang katotohanan ay siya ang nagiging representante ng mga uring naghahari... Pro-elite ang esensya nila,"

"Ang Laban ng Masa, kailangan namin i-expose ito. We want to show that this is an administration that is not only brutal, but it upholds inequality," added by the former Akbayan representative.

Aside from calling the Duterte's administration of being 'Brutal and Pro-elite', he also accused President Duterte of attempting to "consolidate the monopoly of power" in his push for a federal system of government and threat to set up a revolutionary government or declare martial law.

According to the news, 'Laban ng Masa' is a union of labor and civil society groups like Partido Lakas ng Masa, Alliance of TriPeople for the Achievement of Human Rights, National Federation of Labor, Bukluran ng Manggagawang Pilipino, Katarungan at Alab Katipunan.

Belo also confirmed that his new group is not part of any plot to destabilize the government.

He noted that none of Laban ng Masa's members were former administration allies as he distanced the coalition from other groups critical of the administration, like the House Makabayan bloc and Tindig Pilipinas.
