HILLBLOGGER's Contribution

I'm posting this on behalf of Hillblogger who posted this in my comments box. Thanks Anna for the links.

Hi Schumey,

I hope you don't mind my posting the following note:

For Filipinos who may want to write to Mr Jose Manuel Barroso, President of the European Union, with whom Gloria is slated to meet (and to discuss, I suspect the gruelling question of graft, corruption, human rights abuse committed in Philippines) during her trip to Europe, so that Mr Barroso could be apprised of the grievances of Filipinos and may take this up during the meeting, they may do so:

- By e-mail: sg-web-president @
- or By post: President José Manuel Barroso,
European Union
1049, Brussels

A letter to President Barroso may not cure what ails our nation today but we need allies to put the Arroyos in their place - in the dustbin!

Moreover, a letter from Filipinos to President Barroso would help Europe get acquainted with the Philippines because to most Europeans, the Philippines is still very much an unknown quantity.

Thank you very much.

Thanks for allowing me to post it.
