started this petition to
President Benigno S. Aquino III, Members of the Philippine Senate, Members of the Philippine House of Representatives
The Philippines is on the verge of passing a landmark law that could help clean up our government -- but without a surge of public support right now, we could lose this historic opportunity.

If passed, this Freedom of Information law would shine a light into dark corners of our democracy, exposing corruption and preventing abuses of power. President Aquino ran for election on an anti-corruption platform, and endorsed the law in January this year. Still the FOI bill remains languishing in the House of Representatives -- and without our support, it will die there.

This one law can give us a tool to press our government for better policies and services for years to come -- sign and share the petition now.
