PHILIPPINES: “Truth Action” in Support of Whistle Blowers

by AKBAYAN PARTYLIST Tuesday, Feb. 08, 2011 at 4:56 AM

On Monday, members of Akbayan (Citizens Action Party) will conduct a creative action in Philcoa, Quezon City to support former Commission on Audit (COA) Auditor Heidi Mendoza and former military budget officer George Rabusa. The group will also condemn the prevalent corruption inside the Armed forces of the Philippines (AFP) which it said involved "GMA generals."

Dubbed as the “blow a whistle for the brave whistleblowers”, truth advocates will bring “giant whistles”, noise gadgets and colorful posters. They will also give away whistles to passersby and motorists to symbolize the people’s support to Mendoza and Rabusa and to remind the public that the search for truth, justice and accountability is not yet over.

“We give our utmost support to the brave whistleblowers that dared expose the gargantuan corruption inside the military. We laud them for their courageous efforts and as such, Akbayan together with the Filipino people will match it with the same act of bravery not only to expose the truth but also to hold those involved responsible,” former Akbayan representative Risa Hontiveros said.

Hontiveros said their action would be just the first in a series of ‘truth actions’ they will be conducting to convey the people’s unanimous support to the whistleblowers and the people’s demand for genuine justice.

“We are currently talking to other reform-oriented groups and social movements in launching series of protest actions in support of the whistleblowers and the pursuit of truth and justice. We are calling on the public to participate in these events,” Hontiveros said.

The former partylist lawmaker also asked the Aquino government to be decisive on the issue. “Sawa na ang mga tao sa puro imbestigasyon. Panahon na para may managot sa kanilang mga kasalanan sina Garcia, Reyes, lalo na si Arroyo at Ombudsman Gutierrez. Let the axe fall where it may.”

Last Friday, civil society groups and students from Ateneo De Manila University held a noise barrage to support Mendoza and Rabusa. ###
