Bloggers as activists
By Tonyo Cruz
We have done it many times for simple but oft-forgotten reason that bloggers are first and foremost citizens.
Activism is challenging. It is an anti-thesis of bloggers' focus on "me".
Activism is about "we", not "me".
Bloggers can do it and have done it.
And we have done it not for ourselves but for others. We take a stand for others.
When bloggers do something great for others, something great happens.
Bloggers take action

Cybercrime laws are supposedly about making technology and the economy safe, secure.
Not in PH.
President BS Aquino's RA 10175 was an attack on the rights to free speech, privacy and free association.
Everything important to bloggers and netizens.

It could be simple
But potent just the same

Bloggers are also travelers, tourists, photographers, hagglers, economists, mappers, performers.
Bloggers helped make it possible
John Christian Fjellestad
What you can do
Be a champion, an advocate
Adopt a town, union, NGO, school
Make it a tandem or group effort
Help as many people
Use your skills for others
Activism is about doing something different for others. And in so doing, we create something new and great.
Bloggers to help socialize, digitize PH
Bloggers to champion causes, old and new
Bloggers to be thought leaders beyond blogging
Bloggers to play a role in nation-building
Bloggers to become great citizens
Rak na ituuu!
