His Excellency Simeon Benigno “Noynoy” Cojuangco Aquino III
President, Republic of the Philippines


Dear Mr. President,


We are citizens of the Republic of the Philippines who write to oppose the
allotment of 689,207,000,000 pesos of debt payments in the proposed 2012
National Budget.


This amount is greater than the combined budget of the Department of Education
(238,800,000,000 pesos) and the Commission on Higher Education
(920,000,000 pesos).


Prioritizing debt payments over education in the National Budget is a violation of
the Philippine Constitution.


We urge you to rechannel the proposed 2012 debt payments to social services
such as education, health, food and housing.


We urge you to stop excessive debt payments for at least 5 years so that our
country will be able to use the savings to implement various socio-economic
reforms such as the overhaul of the education system, land reform and national
industrialization.


For the sake of our country, we affix our signature to this MANIFESTO AGAINST
EXCESSIVE DEBT PAYMENTS and FOR A PRO-PEOPLE NATIONAL
BUDGET.


Our warmest thanks for your most positive response.


Sincerely yours,
NAME                                       SIGNATURE
