I was watching the news and I was disappointed when the congress junked the impeachment case against PGMA. Well, PGMA chose to have the impeachment proceedings because she is confident that she will not be impeached. Argh! Alliances, alliances, alliances! Sounds like we’re in Reality TV. Oh well, reality does bite. Also, I was surprised when I saw in the news that Cory Aquino and Susan Roces along with others are in the rally together. This now calls for a statement of unity as MLQ3 have put it.
Statement of Unity
Bukluran Para sa Katotohanan
We come from all walks of life, from different political, cultural, and economic persuasions, different points of view. But in diversity, we find a cause for unity. That cause for unity is our common objective to secure the truth.
We all seek the truth. We want the truth to come out. And yet every means for seeking the truth has been frustrated; every avenue for arriving at the truth has been blocked; and every opportunity to find the truth is being closed.
Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo‚Äôs response to our call for the truth has been to suppress evidence, hide her accomplices, engage in a grand cover-up, sow fear, foment distrust and use every instrument at her disposal to encourage division among our people.
We will not be divided in these critical times.
We say with one voice, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo must go. For the good of the country, she must go. For the sake of our nation‚Äôs future, she must go. For the preservation of hope as a motive force in our national life, she must go.
We are united by the belief that this crisis must be resolved in a manner that is peaceful and democratic. Without the truth, there cannot be peace; without the truth, there is no genuine democracy. The truth must set our nation free.
Unite for the truth. Demand the truth. Defend the truth.
Kami ay ang Bukluran Para sa Katotohanan.
