>From a Nationalists Perspective
In the latest issue of the Intersect, nationalist Wigberto Tañada talks about
poverty in the Philippines. He recalls that Edsa 1&2 sparked huge hopes of
societal change and better lives for the poor, yet, nothing really happened.
People merely became indifferent. Tañada believes that to get rid of poverty,
we need to transform the countrys leaders and citizens into Filipinos with a
strong sense of community and nationhood.
Together with former senator Tañada, several other key personalities in
different fields express their opinions about poverty. Among them are: DOLE
Secretary Patricia Sto. Tomas, Congresswoman Risa Hontiveros-Baraquel, NGO
veterans Raul Gonzales and Eugene Caccam Jr., Church figures Bishop Chito
Tagle and Sister Mary John Mananzan, PO leaders Oscar Castillo and Danny
Edralin, media personalities Howie Severino and Sheila Coronel, academicians
Dr. Cynthia Bautista and Dr. Antonette Palma-Angeles and National Youth
Commission chairperson Paulo Benigno Bam Aquino IV.
