Black Friday Bulletin #7 - Earth Day Friday Protest for April 21

Huwag Babuyin ang Kalikasan. Huwag Babuyin ang Demokrasya.
Say NO to PIG (People's Initiative ni Gloria)!

Designated time and place of flash protest for April 21:
Pasig Riverbank (along JP Rizal near Makati Park and Garden) - 5:30 to 6:30 PM


Exact Location is Pasig Riverbank, along J.P. Rizal Ext., Bgy. Cembo, Makati City.
(note: It is near but outside of Makati Park and Garden and beside the old ferry station)

Landmarks: Across it are Guadalupe Arcadia Square where Mercury Drugstore and Banco San Juan are located (This is where you can park your cars); BLISS Housing and Chapel of Charity of St. John Mary Vianney Parish.

Facing it across the river on the Mandaluyong side are the candy-colored Gawad Kalinga houses.

Where to pass: Coming from Makati along EDSA, turn right after Guadalupe Mall before the bridge; alternate route is Lawton Avenue (street across Kalayaan exit from Fort Bonifacio) and turn left when you hit J.P. Rizal.

Plan of action:

1) Wear BLACK, preferably the "Patalsikin Na! NOW NA!" T-shirts. (Visit to see where you can order them)

2) Bring candles.

3) Assemble at Makati Park and Garden (see instructions above on how to get there) between 5:00 to 5:15 PM.

4) When the cue is given, march towards the old ferry station. Some of the leaders will go down to board a waiting banca that will bring them towards the middle of the river. They will lay down candles placed in cut banana trunks to allow them to float. Those who will stay by the river bank will also lay down floating lit candles.

5) The activity is called "Ilaw sa DalamPASIGan, Linawan ang Isipan ng Taga-Malacanang". The general idea is to let the candles float along Pasig until it reaches Malacanang.

6) After the candle floating activity, everyone should assemble along the river bank.

7) On cue, everybody should line up along the sidewalk, facing the street and then do the "Patalsikin" sign. Of course, someone should be taking the picture.

8) Disperse quietly.

Suggested preparations:
1) Invite as many friends, or officemates, as you can.
2) Make sure that you bring candles.
3) If you're coming from the same office, arrange for carpooling.
4) If you own the business, or if you're a manager of a business unit, invite your employees or your subordinates to join you.
5) If you're outside of the Philippines, and there are enough of you to organize a protest action, you can do the a similar activity or design your own protest action. Inform your local media about the event. Don't forget to take pictures and email to
6) If you're outside of Metro Manila, and there are enough of you to organize a protest action, select a public place like a park where you can do the same action. Send us pictures, as well.

Important reminders:
1) This is a SILENT PROTEST, not a rally. Please do not shout, sing, pass leaflets, or do anything to disrupt the traffic along JP Rizal.

2) Bring your cameras. The highlight of the protest action is the floating of candles at the Pasig river and the group's "patalsikin" pose. Let's document them with pictures.

Let's paint the Pasig Riverbank BLACK on Friday.

Hi Enteng, hi Helga,

I've just forwarded your blog address to a very good friend of mine in Paris who is president of the federation of Fil-com associations in France.

He and I have been in touch recently and I have briefed him about the PI and Gloria's proposed charter.

I told him about your association and that he should get in touch with you.

He didn't know that there are coordinated efforts among Pinoys worldwide calling for Gloria's ouster by blog.

I hope he will get in touch with you soon.

Hi Anna! It's been a while, really sorry about silence, have been very busy. You'll know why tomorrow, I think. :-)

Merci bien! Will look forward to touching base with the gentleman.

Meanwhile, congratulations to you, Marvin, and Yuko on your worldwide efforts!

Naku, sa France naman balak magbigay ng kahihiyan ang mga konyo, konya, feeling sikat at pasosyal na ito.

Ang France, ang kanta nila "Aux armes citoyens! Formez vos bataillons, Marchons, marchons! Qu'un sang impur Abreuve nos sillons"

Hindi bagay ang mga kabakyaang chant ng BnW na "Patalsikin na now na or else we will do the patalsikin pose and make lagay lagay the pix in the blog sige kaaaa... boo hoo hoo hoo"

maybagongbuhay - bwahahahahaha! nakakatawa yung mga tukmol! This is my favorite comment:
When the BnW's "mamang mukhang tuod" (not my words) hands over a "letter of support" to a confused Thai Embassy employee -

"Nakakahiya naman ang mga ito. Look at the expressions on the faces of the Thais mukhang nandidiri sa mga actuations ng mga ito. Yung nagbibigay ng brown envelope eh gusto mag kiss-@ss sa mga Thai eh the facial expressions and body languages of the Thai People (man in blue turning away, man in white has folded arms and looks like he wants to walk away) indicate that they don't want to have anything to do with these ninnies. Wala man lang ka-warmth warmth eh.

"Yung babae on the right parang sabi 'nakunan niyo ba nakunan niyo ba?'. Damn pathetic. Mga desperate for attention itong mga ito they even try to trick these Thais to make themselves appear supportive of their movement. Nakakahiya talaga."

Micketymoc your blog write-ups about these ninnies are so HYSTERICAL! I was rolling on the floor laughing! You should mirror those pictures and comments in your blog so everyone (even non-PExers) can see the funny comments! You may be an Atenean and me, a Lasallian but we are united in our making fun of these retards.

This was my fave from micketymoc's blog: From Micketymoc's blog: "No, it definitely wasn’t funny for Dinky Soliman and Enteng Romano, getting pounced upon by the police while parading at the Boardwalk in Starbucks black. So why, instead of a gritty scene in some Lino Brocka movie, was I thinking more along the lines of Tito Vic and Joey?

“Sumama na kayo.” “Nge!” (Comedy music ngweeeee ngweeeeee ngweeeee ngweeeee NGWEEEEEEEEEE.)"

GMA: Hi Emy, so ano? Nakita mo na ang pinasok mo?
Emy: Oo nga Glo. Nabigla yata ako. Hindi ko akalain na hindi pala talaga para sa akin yun. Lalo na yung grupo ni Dinky puro mga kulang-kulang.
GMA: Sabi ko na sa iyo eh ikaw ayaw mo maniwala. Tingnan mo nga ang mga itsura ng mga yan at may papitik pitik pa.
Emy: Oo nga, noong nagyaya sila sa Starbucks nagduda na ako eh. Tapos nakita ko sila may mga t-shirt na may nakasulat na "Patalsikin na, Now Na" halos masuka ako sa nakita ko.
GMA: Ha ha ha ha ha! Oo nakita ko din yun mare.
Emy: Pati yung sa Thai Embassy nilang protesta, nakakahiya sila. Yung mga Thai eh halatang nandidiri sa paninipsip at pang-uuto nila. Kaya nag decide na lang akong bumalik sa inyo.
GMA: Very wise move.
