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!
