Breaking News: Group Blames Sen. Bam Aquino for Allegedly Organizing Chaotic UN Rally
Social group Vigilantes Against Crime on Humanity (VACH) is blaming Senator Bam Aquino for allegedly using innocent people in UN rally that resulted to violence, leading to injuries of more than 30 protesters and police officers.
VACH, a social activist group that focus on preserving humanity through peaceful movement, aired their sympathy to both protesters and police, saying they were all victims of greed and jealousy of “some politicians who don’t want change for the country”.
Although several groups and agencies, including the DSWD partly criticized the police, VACH said it blames no one but green politicians who are still in power.
It was reported earlier that police only responded when the group of protesters came close and vandalized the walls of American Embassy and the UN.
Labor and human rights lawyer, and VACH secretary general Vicente Montalbo during a radio interview, urged Sen. Bam Aquino and his cohorts to never do it again.
“Violence like this should have been avoided if Bam Aquino and his yellow cohorts did not use innocent people. They should stop doing it now for good”, Montalbo said.
An email sent to the office of the senator asking his reaction is yet to be replied.

It has been a week since Agot Isidro’s controversial statement against President Rodrigo Duterte caused rift among Filipinos which increased the gap between the supporters and the detractors of the president
– Following the hype, one Facebook user Elton Levin Domingo created a satirical meme featuring the actress that later on turned into a mock campaign and became a subject of interest of several netizens
– The #BangonAgot #KaninParaKayAgot #SaveAgotFromHunger tops the trend paving way to the birth of more memes about Isidro
“We are now accepting donations for the Kanin Para Kay Agot Program. Tulungan po natin si Madam na huwag magutom. Because we care. Because we can. Do the right thing and DONATE NOW,” the parody campaign read.
Many ride with it, taking selfies with the supposed relief goods and donations for Isidro.
“Bayanihan For Agot Isidro #SaveAgotFromHunger”
“DU30SAID Charity Food Campaign to Save Agot Isidro From Hunger! Post your food donation photo comment using the hashtag #SaveAgotFromHunger”
“We give Love not Hate! After her “Psychopath” remarks and a fear of hunger, Filipino people all over the world flooded Ms. Agot Isidro by generosity and love.
“Netizens pledge food and financial support for the actress.
“This is Love.”
On the other hand, some criticized the way others behaved, decrying that what they were doing were such a display of immaturity.
PISO PARA KAY AGOT PARA WAG LANG SIYANG MANGHINAYANG KUNG MAWALA ANG USA AT EU AIDS
Isidro has previously called Duterte a “psychopath” which enraged the president’s well-wishers.
China ‘overtakes U.S. as the the world’s largest economy’: IMF says economy is now worth £11 trillion as America falls into second place for the first time since 1872
- Figures show the Chinese economy is worth £11trillion, the US £10.8trillion
- The IMF estimates China’s economy will be worth £16.7trillion in 2019
- The US has been the global leader since it overtook Britain in 1872
China has toppled America to become the biggest economy in the world, according to figures from the International Monetary Fund.
The US has been the global leader since it overtook Britain in 1872, but has now lost its status as top dog.
The latest IMF figures show the Chinese economy is worth £11trillion compared with £10.8trillion for the US.
China – whose wealth has accelerated in recent decades amid rapid industrialisation – is expected to extend its lead, with the IMF estimating its economy will be worth £16.7trillion in 2019.
That would be 20 per cent bigger than the US economy, which is forecast to be worth £13.8trillion by then.
The numbers are based on ‘purchasing power parity’ (PPP) which makes adjustments for the fact that goods are cheaper in countries such as China relative to the US.
Without these adjustments for living costs, the Chinese economy is still smaller than that of the US, at £6.4trillion.
But experts have described the toppling of America after nearly 150 years by China – even on the PPP measure – as a ‘symbolic’ moment for the global economy.
China enjoyed three decades of double-digit growth before the global downturn, as industrialisation and sweeping economic reforms created a new powerhouse in the East.
Growth has slowed in recent years but remains strong by Western standards with the IMF forecasting expansion of 7.4 per cent this year and 7.1 per cent in 2015.
By contrast, the IMF is predicting growth of just 2.2 per cent in the US this year and 3.1 per cent next year, while the UK is set for expansion of 3.2 per cent and 2.7 per cent.
The Fund yesterday said the US and the UK ‘are approaching economic lift-off’ as they bounce back from the recession. But Olivier Blanchard, chief economist at the IMF, warned that ‘potential growth is lower than it was in the early 2000s’ for much of the West, including the US and UK.
NUMBER ONE FOR 142 YEARS: HOW THE U.S. OVERTOOK BRITAIN AS THE WORLD’S ECONOMIC POWERHOUSE IN 1872
Britain led the world in the industrial revolution of the mid-18th century, but America was hot on its heels.
The US underwent huge industrial expansion after its civil war ended in 1865, fuelled by rapid urbanisation and huge population growth – including the immigration of nearly 30million Europeans.
In 1872, its economy overtook Britain to become the world’s largest, a position it held for the next 142 years.
Productivity, leading brands and innovation, coupled with the success of the US dollar and the fact that 62 per cent of the world’s financial reserves are held in the currency, kept America on top.
Meanwhile, the economies of Britain and other European powers were ravaged by two world wars. Britain borrowed heavily from America during the Second World War and received a further $4.3billion in 1945.
China was the world’s leading trading nation up to the 18th century, until control of its ports and trade were taken over by imperial nations in Europe. Under Communism it remained inward-looking, until 1980 when the government started to allow foreign investment.
He added that China is ‘maintaining high growth’ which will slow in the coming years to a more ‘healthy’ level between 6 per cent and 7 per cent. Arvind Subramanian, senior fellow at the Washington-based Peterson Institute and an expert on China, recently highlighted the ‘symbolic’ importance of China overtaking the US.
‘China is very big and getting bigger,’ he said. ‘It’s not to be underestimated.’
The news that China is now the largest economy in the world is an embarrassment for Barack Obama and ends America’s 142 years at the top.
Britain had out-produced the US and its European rivals for much of the 19th century, at the height of the industrial revolution and with trade links across the Empire. But the US caught up as a growing population, the expansion of the railways and a focus on industry as well as agriculture boosted its economy.
