AMRSP urges people to join ‘Truth Fest’

MANILA, August 21, 2008— The Association of Major Religious Superiors of the Philippines is calling on the people to join the “Truth Fest,” which seeks to expose the “untruths” in the society today.

AMRSWP chairperson Sr. Mary John Mananzan, OSB, said the gathering at the Plaza Rajah Sulayman on Roxas Boulevard in Manila on August 22 will also raise political issues such as renewed calls for Charter change and the ongoing conflict in Mindanao.

Mananzan said activity is expected to gather around 50, 000 people, which will also serve as a venue for “creative and innovative ways to encourage truth-telling and to search for truth.”

She further said that more “expose” would be made during the event, which kicks off at 3 p.m. and end at dawn of August 23.

“I invite everyone to attend this gathering and let us all defend the truth,” Mananzan said.

The highlight of the program will be the “litany of truths” around 9 p.m.

She said tomorrow’s activity will also feature street art, drum lines and musical performances.

“We have already solicited Mayor Alfredo Lim’s permission to use the part of Roxas Blvd., for the event which will gather well-meaning citizens,” she further said. (Melo Acuña)(CBCPNews)
