At this extraordinary time in our nation's life, we Lasallians hear again the call to renew our commitment to good governance. As one Lasallian Family, let us participate in the efforts to ensure that the government will be transparent, accountable, honest and principled in the use of our nation's resources. We invite all to join the mass action calling for transparency and accountability in the use of the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF)/Pork Barrel on 26 August 2013, Monday at the Luneta (Km 0, Carabao).
- Assembly Time: 7:30 am
- Assembly Point: De La Salle University (Taft Campus) at the Cory Aquino Democratic Space - Ground Floor of the Henry Sy, Sr. Hall.
- Attire: White shirts and green armbands/ribbons.
We will walk as one towards Luneta at 8:00am. Facilitators will be identified by the Lasallian Justice and Peace Commission (LJPC) of De La Salle Philippines to lead the teach-ins on the nature and use of the PDAF/Pork Barrel allotted to our lawmakers. It is our hope that our action as a Lasallian family will lead to a deeper commitment to our nation's good and be based on an educated understanding of the deeper issues involved.
We also ask our schools in Visayas and Mindanao to join mass action in your cities as there are also groups who are calling for similar mobilization in major cities/towns outside of Metro Manila.
You are advised to coordinate with Mr. Gladstone Cuarteros of LJPC at +63 917 843 9468 or firstname.lastname@example.org regarding the participation of your community.
Let us proudly proclaim our being Filipino by seeking to lift our people into their better selves.
