nat'l pork outrage
BY CARLA GOMEZ
The Negrosanons Kontra Korapsyon are staging a “Tipon Tipon sa Lagoon” in front of the provincial Capitol building in Bacolod City to air their outrage over the misuse of the pork barrel funds by the country's lawmakers at 9 a.m. Monday.
The protest will be held simultaneously with a mass public gathering at the Rizal Park in Manila and in other parts of the country on August 26, which is a public holiday, in observance of National Heroes' Day, to show citizens' outrage .
Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra yesterday also called for the abolition of the pork barrel fund that he called a temptation for so many abuses. The country needs to address so many needs and the theft of its resources must be put to a stop, he said.
