CAMPAIGN FOR LAND USE POLICY NOW! (CLUP Now!)
Greetings from the Campaign for Land Use Policy Now! (CLUP Now!)
We are a network of peoples’ organizations and non-government organizations (NGOs) leading the campaign for the passage of the National Land Use Act (NLUA). The NLUA bill was approved this 15th Congress on 3rd reading by the House of Representatives last September 20, 2012. The Senate approved its version on 2nd reading in January 2013. Moreover, President Benigno S. Aquino III certified land use bill as urgent that must be enacted into a law this 15th Congress.
Notwithstanding only two session days left in this Congress come June 5 and 6, 2013, CLUP Now! still believes that there is a chance for NLUA to be enacted into law given Pres. Aquino’s certification of NLUA as an urgent bill. He recognizes the need to have a law that will provide for efficient and sound management of the country’s resources to address environmental problems as well as political and cultural land and water disputes.
In this light, CLUP Now! is launching a month long advocacy activities to ensure that legislators will finally pass this important piece of legislation. This activity will be kicked off by a Kite Flying Event entitled “We Need Space for Kite Flying! Pass National Land Use Act Now!”. We would like to invite you to this Kite Flying Event on May 19, 2013, Sunday, 2:00 pm, at UP Sunken Garden, UP Diliman Campus, Quezon City.
The Kite Flying Event aims to achieve the following objectives:
Generate more awareness for NLUA
Information, Education, Communication activities on NLUA for children and families
Launch the one month long advocacy activities on NLUA
We thank you and earnestly hope for your presence and support of NLUA’s passage.
Should you have queries, you may contact Ms. Kimberly B. Alvarez at 09186545059 or 433-0760, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Very Truly Yours,
Executive Director, KAISAHAN
