What am I Fighting for? I am forever against privatization of any public Entities especially our Public Market.
I’m neither a lawyer nor a politician. I’m a voter and a concern citizen who wants to fight for her rights. I have no idea or knowledge regarding privatization of public entities, but I have the right to investigate any questionable activities that can lead to the loss of our business and jobs.
Last month we were shaken by the news regarding Resolution No. 50 – Privatization of Lipa City Public Market. There’s no public consultation whatsoever. We were just informed prior to voting and deliberation. We are invited to witness the voting which was held at Lipa City Hall. Upon hearing the debates, I realized half of the city councilors want to privatize the public market. I was sad and depressed but I have to stand up for what I think is right. We will fight until the end. Our business is here and many will lose their jobs.
