Do you have personal experiences of corruption, big or small, that you would like to share in support of Freedom of Information? Please send them to SaTotooTayoBlog@gmail.com.
1. Please provide your full name. We will keep your name and email address absolutely confidential, unless you specifically request that we publish it.
2. Refer to previous posts for ideal length. We hope to keep reading time to less than 5 minutes per post. We reserve the right to edit overly long posts to fit.
3. For legal reasons, if your submission contains a statement of fact that harms the reputation of a person, please do not name that person. Also, please do not include descriptions from which the identity of that person may be reasonably inferred (i.e., "the person living in Malacanang"). However, you are free to name persons you are expressing negative opinions about. The difference lies in statements of fact (i.e., "he asked for a bribe") versus statements of opinion (i.e., "his behavior makes me sick"). If in doubt, send it anyway and we will email you back with our proposed edit.
Thank you in advance. Everyone knows of the problem, but few have direct experience of it. Your personal accounts provide that missing dimension.
Just cut-and-paste our form letter and send it to your email contacts, e-groups, and mailing lists. You can also use Multiply, Facebook, or Friendster posts -- or even better -- personal messages.
Every sign-up helps get the law passed!
[SUGGESTED SUBJECT: Please join me in signing the petition for the Philippine Freedom of Information Act]
I'd like to invite you to join me in supporting the Philippine Freedom of Information Act currently pending in the senate. Freedom of Information laws help fight corruption by guaranteeing public access to government information and records.
The country needs our help to ensure the Freedom of Information Act is passed in 2008, before the start of campaigning in 2009. Please show our legislators you support the act by taking a few seconds to sign the online petition here: http://satotootayo.blogspot.com/
