#PORKTOBERFEST - A Street Party Protest Against the Pork Barrel System


Wazzup Pilipinas!


So you go out on a payday Friday night. You check your payslip and you see your withholding tax - there goes part of your hard-earned money. You pay for parking with 12% EVAT. You buy food and drinks with friends and you pay your bill - with 12% EVAT. The next morning you read the papers, you see how the taxes you paid last night was misused by people you thought you could trust. Dammit.

On October 25, a Friday night at 7 pm, you probably will go out again. Pay for parking, pay for gas, and pay for your weekly dose of Friday night food and drinks - with all those you pay 12% EVAT. BUT YOU HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF THE DECEIT AND THIEVERY. You want to tell your government that what you will be paying on the night of October 25 should be properly used and should not go to the pockets of those suckers. YOU WILL DO THIS AT THE #PORKTOBERFEST!

BE IN THE KNOW. BE AWARE. BECAUSE YOU OWE IT TO YOUR COUNTRY. Because you can have fun while you learn about your country's issues and while you become part of the solution to your country's problems.


On October 25, we will be computing all the EVAT you will be paying for your purchases that night from your receipts and total them.

At the strike of midnight we will make noise and tell our government that THAT AMOUNT IS WHAT YOU OWE US AND WE DON'T WANT IT PART OF THE PORK BARREL AND WE WANT IT TO BE PUT INTO GOOD USE!!!

We also encourage everyone to drop your receipts on a huge drop box which will have a sign saying "EVAT PAID UNDER PROTEST". Let's show this government that our taxes is its lifeblood and that THEY OWE US THE PROPER USAGE OF OUR HARD EARNED MONEY!

BRING YOUR NOISEMAKERS AND WEAR WHITE! SHOW YOUR GOVERNMENT THAT YOU ARE THE BOSS!

See you at the #PORKTOBERFEST!
 

WE DEMAND:

1) The ABOLITION of the Pork Barrel System.
2) A FULL ACCOUNTING of ALL pork barrel funds used.
3) An IMPARTIAL INVESTIGATION and the PROSECUTION OF ALL INDIVIDUALS INVOLVED in the misuse of pork barrel funds.

WE SUPPORT THE PASSING OF THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT.

There will be NO CENTRAL STAGE AND SPEECHES. Bars and restaurants in the area are invited to set up tables and chairs/ booths and kiosks and even small platforms/stages along the sidewalk of Morato to provide entertainment AGAINST THE PORK BARREL. Street performers/artists (flashmobs, singers, poetry readers, etc.) are also invited to perform along the street.

Express yourself on our Freedom Wall where you can write your protests against the pork barrel system!

Bring your noisemakers because at 12 midnight we will make noise that will echo throughout this country TO SHOW THIS GOVERNMENT THAT WE ARE THE BOSS AND WE WANT THE PORK BARREL SYSTEM SCRAPPED!!!

Show the government that you want cleaning up! WEAR WHITE! COME AND SHOW YOUR GOVERNMENT THAT YOU ARE THE BOSS!
