The Right for Information. This is the battle cry of those who pushes changes in the government. An idea wishes to be seen as a reality since it was first proposed in the Philippine Congress twenty seven years ago. The right of Information was enshrined in the 1987 Philippine Constitution. However, a law must be enacted so that its proper passage to the daily life will be directed towards a more transparent and clean governance.
The CBCP - NASSA, that is the Catholic Bishop Conference of the Philippines' National Secretariat for Social Action-Justice and Peace is joining the campaign for the passage of the Bill this 16th Philippine Congress. Please be advised that all parishes are requested to pass signature campaign materials for the said purpose.
Rev. Fr. Rene Iriga, the Diocesan Director of Social Action of San Pablo reiterated this important campaign which should be submitted this July 7. Rather they will picked it up in each parishes to be collated and be given to the President on his scheduled State Of the Nation Address.
