Anti-Pork protests continue-The Halloween Ride!

Anti-Pork protests continue


Pagkatapos ng Million People March sa Luneta ay sunod-sunod pa ang mga naging pagkilos ng iba’t-ibang grupo at siyempre ng mamamayan. Ang ilan sa mga ito ay ang mga sumusunod: (extracted from FB events)

RIDE TO ABOLISH ALL PORK – The Halloween Ride!

RIDE TO ABOLISH ALL PORK The Halloween Ride
Ngayong Halloween, mag ride tayo upang hindi masayang ang mga buwis na ating ibinabayad sa mga GHOST PROJECTS..

Hangga’t nandiyan ang PORK BARREL SYSTEM, dadami pa ang mga ghost projects na ito at patuloy na ibubulsa lamang ng mga TRAPO ang pera ng bayan.

Magkita-kita tayo sa October 25, 2013, 6pm sa Eliptical road ng Quezon Memorial Circle malapit sa kanto ng Commonwealth. Magsuot ng holloween costume.

Did you know mga ka-riders?
According to Former National Treasurer and UP Prof Leonor Briones, ang MVUC na binabayad natin (kasama kotse atbp) sa LTO kada taon ay pinaghahati hatian ng mga tongresman (10million kada isa) para pondohan umano ang mga road repairs and construction sa mga distrito nila. Kung nasa 4 million na tayong mga registered motorcycles sa 240 pesos na MVUC na binabayad natin sa LTO kada taon, halos 1 bilyon ang ating tax na napupunta sa mga kongresista na ito…

Pero anu ba ang pakinabang natin? Substandard na mga kalsada, kapos na programa para safety at hindi magandang trato sa ating mga riders. Dyan napupunta ang ibinabayad natin, kapos na serbisyo!

Kaya pagkatapos ng LUNETA AT EDSA TAYO NAMAN MGA RIDERS ANG KIKILOS!

(This is a free initiative of concerned individual riders. BUT WE ARE CALLING ALL CLUBS, FEDERATIONS, ALLIANCES AND ORGANIZATION TO SUPPORT THE INITIATIVE)

At pagkatapos ay makikipagkita ang mga riders sa Kilusang #KonTRAPOrk na binubuo naman ng iba’t-ibang CSOs, POs at NGOs upang magmartsa patungo sa T.Morato kung saan naman ay magaganap ang #PORKtoberFEST kung saan ay naghihintay pa ang iba pang mga mamamayang nananawagan ng #SCRAPPORK!

I think before I Pindot

This “I think before I click” campaign of GMA7 caught my interest and I am sure it had reached millions of viewers too.

Naalala ko tuloy ang mga kasama ko sa “Digital Activism” training na dinaluhan ko few months ago.  Conducted by DAKILA and sponsored by The Asia Foundation. Bilang bahagi ng pangungulit namin noon sa isat-isa, we made fun of the idea of calling ourselves “Pindoteros” instead of “digital activists.”

We even thought of translating everything online into “tagalog” kaya instead of share it, like it, tweet it or click it, napagkatuwaan naming tawagin itong – “Pindutin na ‘yan!”

I agree with GMA7, I believe everyone does, that the power of social media is a great responsibility.

“…If you think about how the Philippines is famous for “People Power” — that necessary ingredient that toppled presidents in peaceful revolutions — it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the country is also among the top countries in the world in terms of presence in the social media space.

On Facebook, the world’s largest social network, Filipinos represent some 25 million of the reported 750 million users worldwide, putting the Philippines at 7th place in the world just behind highly populous nations like the US, Indonesia and India,” According to the article in GMAnews.tv.” GMA said.

“It’s time for another “People Power” this time to push for a more responsible use of social media. How can you help? Simple, tell as much people as you can to “Think Before You Click”. Here’s how you can do that:

  • Take a photo of yourself holding up a sign “think before you click” written on a sheet of paper and change that to your Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google+, MySpace or Flickr profile photo. Then upload them to YouScoop.tv.
  • Add a “Think Before You Click” Twibbon to your Twitter DP.
  • Tweet us using the hashtag #thinkB4Uclick and tell us how you can be a more responsible user of social media. Or join ongoing discussions on Facebook and Google+.
  • Record a video of yourself discussing how you can do your part to promote social media responsibility and upload it to YouScoop.tv.

It’s indeed all one easy click away. Now a click could definitely change a nation. Topple a dictator or destroy a person.
