"SEEK THE TRUTH, RISE UP AGAINST CORRUPTION, RECLAIM OUR NATION"

 

          WE, Filipinos all, residents of Negros Occidental and speaking out the collective voice of the many social, economic, religious and youth sectors within our City and Province address this Statement to our officials in government and to fellow Filipinos.  Reacting to the tug-of-war that is  being waged by the Executive Branch of government and the Senate in the present Inquiry into the NBN-ZTE broadband deal, we strongly support the continuation of the investigation being done by the Upper Chamber of Congress.

 

In seeking out the truth, we:

 

· ask that our Honorable Senators continue the inquiry that they have been conducting on the NBN-ZTE broadband deal;

 

· place our faith upon the courage of Mr. Rodolfo Noel Lozada, Jr. and urge him to reveal all that he knows about the reported "eco-system of corruption" that has surrounded its negotiations;

 

· urge CHED Chairman Romulo Neri and other public officials who know details about this web of  corruption to come out now and help stamp out this evil that is bedeviling our Country;

 

· demand that the President and her allies not obstruct the way of finding the Truth, and certainly not to utilize the machinery and resources of Government to suppress it;

 

· wish to rouse our People from apathy  to corruption and deception within the government bureaucracy and hold our officials accountable for every corrupt activity.

 

In rising up to corruption, we :

 

  • condemn corruption, dishonesty and fraud committed in the name of "public service";

 

  • demand that corrupt officials who rob our coffers with impunity and who make a mockery of our laws be prosecuted and the full force of the law hurled at them;

 

  • insist that our system of justice measure up to the task that our people require from it, and that corrupt officials get the penalty that they deserve.

 

In demanding our sovereign right to reclaim our beloved Philippines, we:

 

 

  • refuse to be manipulated by our public servants who have vowed to serve us;

 

  • demand that national and local officials should defend the real people's interest and stop mouthing the line of Malacanang;

 

  • follow the courageous example of Jun Lozada—that each Filipino speak the TRUTH and condemn the LIE.

 

WE HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE BUT OUR CHAIN,

WE HAVE IN FACT, A GREAT NATION TO GAIN!
