Blowing their whistles in support of former Commission on Audit (COA) Auditor Heidi Mendoza and former military budget officer George Rabusa, members of Akbayan party on Monday staged a creative action to condemn the prevalent corruption inside the Armed forces of the Philippines (AFP) involving the former generals of the previous administration.
Dubbed as the “blow your whistle for the brave whistleblowers”, truth advocates carried “oversized whistles”, noise gadgets and colorful posters at Philcoa, Quezon City where they conducted their “truth action.” They blew and gave away whistles to passersby and motorists to symbolize the people’s support to Mendoza and Rabusa. The group also said their activity is a way of telling the public that the search for truth, justice and accountability is not yet over.
“We give our utmost support to the brave whistleblowers that dared expose the gargantuan corruption inside the military. We laud them for their courageous efforts and as such, Akbayan together with the Filipino people will match it with the same act of bravery not only to expose the truth but also to hold those involved responsible,” former Akbayan representative Risa
