Cebu Coalition invites you to June 12 People's Rally

  1. 1. June 8, 2014 Dear Friends, More and more pork barrel scams are being unearthed, and these are published by the media almost daily. To assure that Truth Come Out and Justice is Served with little or no hindrance, the Cebu Coalition Against the Pork Barrel System calls: 1) government agencies to hasten the investigation and to file the appropriate cases in court, 2) those accused to resign from public office, 3) when convicted, the guilty should return the money stolen from the people, and should serve jail sentence in regular jail facilities. While we laud the Supreme Court decision on the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF), we wish to point out that the Supreme Court itself admits that its decision only covered certain aspects of the pork barrel issue, contained in the limited parameters of the petitioners. Notwithstanding, the PDAF has re-emerged or is still untouched in many disguised forms, in the budgeting and disbursing by government offices and agencies! To put a final lid on the pork barrel, specifically from the Legislative and Executive branches of government, we are one with anti-pork barrel groups in the country, that the people use the 1987 Philippine Constitution provision on the passage of a law through the PEOPLE’S INITIATIVE (PI). This way, the people themselves can craft and sign into law a more comprehensive legal solution to abolish the pork barrel system. Likewise, the CEBU COALITION AGAINST THE PORK BARREL SYSTEM invites you to: PEOPLE’S RALLY ON INDEPENDENCE DAY at the Fuente Osmeña on June 12, 2014 at 2:00 in the afternoon. This activity highlights the experiences, reflections, and “calls” from different sectors deeply affected by the Pork Barrel Scam and knowledgeable about the People’s Initiative. Concerned groups and individuals are invited to join this June 12, 2014 activity from 1:30 PM to 5:00 in the afternoon. The Cebu Coalition Against the Pork Barrel System (0927 3493409/ 0998-4564378/ 0923-8720288/ will coordinate the details of this activity. Note also that the June 12, 2014 Gathering is also to prepare us for the National People’s Congress on People’s Initiative on August 23, 2014 at the Cebu Mariners’ Court. Thank you very much. Sincerely yours, MSGR. ROMUALDO G. KINTANAR MARC CANTON Convenor Convenor
