sabi nga ni Junep Ocampo:

3 REASONS WHY WE’RE GOING TO — AND HOLDING A VIGIL IN — EDSA ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2013:

We are organizing the EDSA TAYO Protest Vigil on Sept. 11 at EDSA Shrine. It’s a sunrise-to-God-knows-when event. Mula pagsikat ng araw, walang uwian hangga’t hindi inaabolish ni PNoy ang PDAF.

Why are we doing it?

Here are our 3 reasons:

1. BECAUSE WE ARE GETTING IMPATIENT. We feel the government is just ignoring us. Wala, dedma lang. We want to show our children that this issue of pork barrel is important for this country and for their future. And we want to show them that this is worth staying up all day and all night for.

2. BECAUSE WE ARE MORE ANGRY NOW. After attending yesterday’s rally in Luneta, I can say that, yes, we are still enraged. In fact, our anger has multiplied and it continues to grow every time we hear or read about the corruption in government. We fume each time we hear of how some government official has stolen the money that is supposed to be for projects meant for uplifting the lives of the poor. We get pissed off every time we see pictures of Janet Lim Napoles and her daughter/s which remind us of how they spent billions of money supposed to be for the poor. And our anger only escalates because we know that such things will only continue if the pork barrel is not completely scrapped. This kababuyan has to stop.

3. BECAUSE WE BELIEVE IN EDSA. It was in EDSA, not Luneta, where the dictator Ferdinand Marcos was toppled. It was in EDSA where Erap was ousted. And we believe it will be in EDSA where the pork barrel system will end.

This protest vigil is organized by an ordinary family and our closest friends. Our group is but a tiny ripple in this ocean of life. But we know that a tiny ripple joined by millions of tiny ripples eventually becomes a tsunami. Millions of tiny Filipino families like us who care for this country can create change.

See you in EDSA. Sept. 11, 2013.
EDSA TAYO.
It’s more than a call to action.
It’s a statement of faith.
EDSA TAYO.
We are EDSA.

dagdag pa ni Neneth Santos sa FB:

Ang unang hakbang laban sa korapsyon sa gobyerno ay dapat manggaling sa sambayanang Pilipino. Huwag maglalagay kahit kanino at ibunyag ang mga taong humihingi ng lagay. Huwag iboto ang mga kandidatong magbibigay ng pera kapag ibinoto sila dahil ang ibinigay nila sa inyo babawiin nila ng 1000 beses. Huwag ihalal muli ang mga corrupt government officials mula sa pinakamababa hanggang sa presidents ng bansa. Huwag ihalal ang mga kumag-anak, kapamilya at kaibigan ng mga corrupts na opisyales dahil itutuloy lang nila ang dati nilang gawing magnakaw sa kaban ng bayan. Huwag iboto ang isang tao dahil lamang sikat siya pero wala namang alam. Uriin ng todo-todo ang pamumuhay at pagkatao ng isang kandidato bago siya ilagay sa pwesto.

sabi naman ni Kengkay: Ipakita natin sa kanila na tayo ay seryoso sa nasimulang martsa sa Luneta. Ipakita natin sa kanila na nasusuklam na tayo sa kawalang respeto ng mga opisyal sa bayan at sa mamamayan. Ipakita natin sa kanila na hindi na tayo papayag na magpa-api dahil alam nating may karapatang umunlad ang bayan, ang mga mamamayan at hindi lamang silang mga opisyal. Ipakita nating handa tayong lumaban para sa mga susunod na generasyon, para sa maunlad na Pilipinas. Ipakita nating kaya nating ituloy ang laban hanggang marating ang nais nating marating: scrap the pork barrel now!!!

At kung gusto nilang malaman kung ano ang nais nating gawin kapalit ng pork barrel? Hindi ba nila nakita ang mga suhestiyon? Idiretso lahat sa education, roads, modern public facilities, low cost housing, rescue facilities/services, medical services/hospitalization, etc. etc…

Let’s go to EDSA on September 11.

EDSA SHRINE (EDSA corner Ortigas)
Pagsikat ng araw, walang alisan hanggang alisin ni PNoy ang PORK BARREL.
Magkita-kitya tayo sa EDSA Shrine, corner of EDSA and Ortigas.

May God be with us!
