This is a call to my fellow youths who plan to join the September 11 at EDSA. They should go there to join the call for the government’s anti-corruption campaign and let their voices be heard, but not to go there to be in. Join the fiesta atmosphere, or have fun instead of supporting the real essence of the activity.
We know that there are many illegal activities happening in our country, like the problem of illegal logging, so why not join the anti-corruption growing clamor of our people? It is a just cause and I know young people like me want to inherit a government and its leaders who hold office to really serve and not to enrich themselves.
But just be sure that we do not go with the group waving red banners and be identified with leftists groups, and do not march to Mendiola or elsewhere or it will be clear that you support the leftists.
Again to my fellow youths, commit yourself to what is right and proper but do not be aggressive and be swayed by groups who will only join the coming rally for their own purpose.
