We concerned Filipino bloggers stand for the rights to free expression and to free speech. And our first responsibility is to protect these rights. We thus stand with Rappler, its right to exist, the rights of its working journalists and contributors, and the rights of its community of readers. We stand against moves to silence and scare journalists, bloggers and media practitioners just because the President and his ardent supporters dislike their news and views. Now is a time for making choices amid battles between truth and lies, debate and dissonance, democracy and dictatorship. We sign our names here to tell everyone we have made a choice. We are bloggers for freedom.

NOT. The truth is, you can’t truly spend just enough without a plan.
