It’s been another busy week here in the Philippines. The latest Social Weather Station survey on the Reproductive Health bill is showing that most Filipinos believe family planning to be a personal choice. Meanwhile, Pro-Life Philippines is getting all Spanish Inquisition on the freedom of expression. Happily, in the midst of this the Filipino Freethinkers have been nominated for the Globe [email protected] awards (go vote now!) and also, this week is a meetup week!
– Free Speech v. Blasphemy Laws
– CCP Controversy
After the meetup we go for dinner and beer drinking at Congo Grill at El Pueblo (see map). If you’re not a meetup regular and can’t make it for the meetup but would like to go for the post meetup, please indicate on a post in the wall or comment so we can contact you.
