Anti-RH pols invited
to church rally today

Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra yesterday called on the faithful to join a Church-led march rally that starts at 1 p.m. today in Bacolod City to show their resistance to the Reproductive Health Law.

Expected speakers in today's rally are senators Gregorio Honasan and Vicente Sotto III, Zambales Rep. Mitos Magsaysay, Dr. Ligaya Acosta of Human Life International, and a representative from El Shaddai Manila.

“I am inviting the faithful to once again show our resistance to this most evil law…We need the law to be repealed,” the bishop said in a letter sent out to urge Church groups to join the march-rally.moremoremore

No advance swapping
for sugar – SRA

The Sugar Regulatory Administration has decided not to adopt an advance swapping program or revise its allocation of sugar for the remaining months of the Crop Year 2012-13, SRA Administrator Regina Bautista-Martin said yesterday.

This decision came about after the Sugar Board meeting on Thursday where it was shown that sugar production may be better than expected, Martin added.

“We are at the tail end of the milling period. And records from our regulation department showed that from the start of this crop year our production and demand of sugar, both raw and refined, have been consistently up from last year's”, she said.moremoremore
