Rainbow
Coalition
,marches
on D.C.*
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Rev.
Jesse Jackson, saying the inaugural is
"not all private airplanes and
limousines," held his own parade
yesterday and said his Rainbow
Coalition would press its demands "un-
t^ jobs, peace and justice rule this
land."
-"It's time to march. It's time to act.
It's time to move. It's time for a
change," Jackson told a racially-mixed
noontime crowd of some 750 at
Farragut Square, several blocks from
the White House.
"OUR APPEAL may not get through
to the president . . . but we shall fight
until justice is done and all of God's
children have a house and an education
and health care and a chance to live in
peace and justice and self-respect,"
said Jackson, an unsuccessful can-
didate for the Democratic presidential
nomination.
Jackson was joined by Gary, Ind.,
Mayor Richard Hatcher, who said the
administration's policies are in part Father
responsible for his city's prolonged Faatr
double-digit unemployment rate. dayat

Speaker calls
for removal of
Marcos govt.

By JIM GRANT
Support is building for the overthrow
of the Marcos government in the
Philippines, an official from the
Nationalist Alliance for Justice yester-
day told a group of 20 people gathered
in Lane Hall.
"The very day independence was
given, it was taken back," said Father
Jose Dizon, deputy secretary general of
the Nationalist Alliance for Justice. He
said that the Philippine people have
realized that they are "not a free
people."
PHILIPPINOS currently live under a
martial law system imposed by the
Marcos government in 1972. Last May
was the first instance of free elections
in years, according to Dizon.
But these elections did not bring
about the political change that was
needed to free the people from the
poverty which is oppressing them,

Dizon said.
"Eight hundred thousand Philippinos
are laid-off and 80 percent of those who
do have work receive salaries below the
poverty line," he said.
Dizon said that the Marcos gover-
nment shows a lack of concern for the
unemployment and poverty problems
in the country. He said the rapid for-
mation of opposition groups composed
of educated citizens is the only way to
influence the next elections to be held
two years from now.
"With an educated people, a tyrant
can never succeed," Dizon said.
A democratic coalition of these
groups could better represent the views
of the people, Dizon said, because "no
single force represents all the
aspirations of the people."
Dizon's speech was one in a series of
speeches nationwide sponsored by the
Alliance for Philippine Concerns.
