Derailing the Cha Cha Train

This is the proverbial calm before the storm. I don't mean Typhoon "Luis" either, even as it enters our area of responsibility. Well within our range of political vision is Gloria's Cha Cha and a Plebiscite should the Supreme Court reverse itself (am waiting for Edwin Lacierda to enlighten us on this subject, hopefully soon).

One Voice has been in our sights lately, and we all gain from their visibility. Meanwhile, the STOP Cha Cha campaign continues everywhere around the country, quietly doing the work we're good at - spreading the word about the bogus benefits of Gloria's version of Charter Change. To further bolster our ranks, it's time to focus on Manila and its environs through another get together:

This time, the half day workshop aimed at assessing the current situation regarding Cha Cha and formulating do-able action plans is being convened by highly respected individuals. Former VP Guingona, former Sen. Ting Paterno, Bro. Eddie, Nini Quezon Avancena and Bro. Armin have taken it upon themselves to gather civil society, business, religious, academic, political galvanizers together to plot out a unified strategy against Cha Cha.

This is by no means a closed door session, so please join us if you can make the time. The future of our democracy is at stake, apathy is a dirty word. Should most of us remain callous, this is the future we may leave our children:

Your poster reminds me of the "Philippine's Most Wanted" poster which the PNP posts in public places. Looks like a rogues gallery doesn't it. The heading should read: Arroyo Gang Hits Country Anew! Billions stolen and 748 killed.
