Let me report to you that we had a very memorable night last July 22, 2010, at Patrick Pantaleon’s house. There, people from different organizations attended the event called in by Patrick for the purpose of discussing JUSTICE FOR KOKO JUSTICE FOR ALL and the campaign for the establishment of JURY SYSTEM in the Philippines. Atty. Cita “Mama C” Borromeo Garcia representing Worldwide Filipino Alliance (WFA) was there, as well as Atty. Koko Pimentel, his mother Bing Pimentel, his partymates from PDP-Laban, Pasay City Councilor Onie Bayona, Jack Wong, me (Toto Causing) and several members of Hukuman ng Mamamayan Movement Inc. (Ronald Herico, Jun Valdecantos, Asher Bueno, Elmer Rodriguez), Louie Zuce the whistleblower in “Hello Garci” scam and Jong from Davao, Manu Alcuaz who was there as coming from the Tita Cory Movement and many other email organizations is the elder brother of Linggoy Alcuaz, Dr. Ener Sampang and his wife Rona who battled GMA for the congressional seat of Pampanga’s District 2, the chief of staff of Col. Ariel Querubin, Jun Pascual, the pastor who is a congressman-in-waiting of ARAL Partylist, Madam Elvie Medina, Jun Aguilar who represented Partidong Pandaigdigang Pilipino (PPP) and WFA, and many others whose names escape me. Of course, the groups of the gracious host and excellent organizer Patrick were represented: COMPACT (Compassionate Patriots for Accountability and Transparency) and La Salle Ateneo At Lahat Na. These attendances of people from different groups were sufficient to live up to the purpose of mustering a coalition for good governance. By the way, the foods served that night were so delicious and I have to thank Mama Cita and Leah Pantaleon (wife of Patrick) for the sumptuous dinner. That was really a very productive meeting. The meeting resulted in the following: 1. Staging of Rallies on Monday, July 26, 2010, in the Senate to pressure the Senators to speed up the resolution of the protest case of Koko Pimentel where he should be declared the winner of the 12th spot of the Senate’s election in 2007 by a margin of more than 200,000 votes; 2. The rallies shall be in two groups: (a) the “organized” rally where Councilor Bayona and I would be among those who would march from Cuneta Astrodome to the Senate; and (b) the “lightning” rally where Jun Aguilar and Mama C will be among those who will steal the lightning from the rest of the field by raising from nowhere placards just after the flag ceremonies; 3. Ma’am Elvie Medina was tasked to cause the printing of tarpaulins, banners and streamers to be used for the two rallies; 4. Funds of P50,000 was agreed to be raised for the rallies and many chipped in funds to be supplemented by Jack Wong; 5. The JURY ADVOCACY was presented to the new faces and new groups that included Koko Pimentel, Onie Bayona, leaders of PDP-Laban; and 6. After I spoke on the Jury Advocacy, I convinced Atty. Koko Pimentel and Bayona that they committed to me their support (that if Atty. Koko is seated he will be our No. 1 campaigner for Juryism in the Senate). AS USUAL, Mama Cita acted as one of the most gracious ladies that night. She scribbled down the minutes of the meeting. Jun Aguilar acted as the presiding officer with intermission help from Patrick. We will report what happens on Monday, July 26, 2010. Patriotically yours, Toto Causing
