CON ASK: A Forum on HR 1109

Possibilities & Challenges

The most recent passage of the House Resolution 1109 calling for constitutional assembly or con-ass of the House of Congress casts among many the feelings of doubt, fury, fear, and confusion as to the outlook of the country’s national governance. While the calling of such assembly legally speaking remains within the bounds of the constitution as of now, the public believes that there are more vital and critical issues that should have been addressed immediately such as the passage of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program with Extension and Reform. Hence, this act by the congress, by all means, must be publicly scrutinized because of its many possible implications in the political, economic, social and cultural life of the country.

In view of this, we are inviting you to CON ASK: A Forum on HR 1109 Possibilities & Challenges on June 04, 2009 (Thursday), 4:00-5:30 pm. at the Colayco Pavillion, MVP Student Leadership Center, Ateneo de Manila University, Loyola Heights, Quezon City.

The forum’s main speaker will be former Ateneo Law School Dean and constitutional law expert Fr. Joaquin Bernas, S.J.

The forum will be followed through by a noise barrage to express our indignation on HR 1109 at Gate 2.5 of the Ateneo de Manila campus from 5:30-7:00 pm.

For more information about this forum, you may call us at 426-6001 local 4644 and look for Michelle Avelino.
