Dec12 Rally: Stop GMA ChaCha


I browsed Tonyocruz.com post and found out that the anti-ChaCha rally is today, December 12. Sorry I can’t make it but I am posting the invitation from the organizers (courtesy of Tonyo) as a show of support to the anti-ChaCha movement:

Dear Friends and Concerned Citizens,

Greetings of peace in these turbulent and uncertain times!

Recent moves in the House of Representatives by no less than Speaker Prospero Nograles and other administration allies to railroad their discredited bid to change the Philippine Charter (Chacha) by convening Congress into a Constituent Assembly (Con?Ass) has raised the alarm among many concerned sectors of our society.

Like in previous failed attempts at Chacha, a vast majority and still growing number of our people, are convinced that their real purpose is to extend the stay of Mrs. Arroyo in power well beyond 2010.

We thus call on you to be one with our people in declaring, “Enough! Stop Gloria’s Chacha now!”

Join us in an inter?faith, multisectoral prayer and protest rally on Friday, 12 December 2008, 4:00 pm.

Let us congregate at the Ninoy Aquino Monument, Ayala corner Paseo de Roxas, Makati City.

We also enjoin our kababayan in other cities and provinces to express their rejection of Chacha in various forms of protest nationwide.

Let us take a united stand once more so that truth, justice and the will of the people may prevail!
