A call for involvement and vigilant action Now

The AKP strongly condemns the brazen abduction of Mr. Jun Lozada, who apparently chose to come home at risk to life to bear witness to the truth. The callous intimidation and neutralization of potential key witnesses to landmark corruption cases implicating a discredited national leadership, only further exacerbates the culture of criminal impunity plaguing our country, from petty street crimes to national plunder.

We can choose again to passively ignore this latest dastardly assault on our rights to know the truth. But our habitual failure as a community to actively address these abhorrent acts, only encourage their relentless shameful repetitions, and worsens our self degrading moral decline as a society. Our national psychology can only take so much abuse. Only vigilant action, no mater how small, can send the message that we can no longer accept the status quo.

There are many ways to manifest our collective disgust to the deplorable state of leadership and justice. Send a text. Write your political leaders, or to the various media. Actively discuss the issues and reflect on possible courses of action in your immediate communities. Most importantly, take peaceful and lawful democratic action NOW to rekindle our self esteem as a people worthy of respect. The country's interests, sanity, and well being, can no longer wait till 2010.. Express a groundswell of discontent over our abominable state of affairs. Join an organization that you believe reflects your deepest beliefs, aspirations and hope.

The AKP has initiated community programs and projects at the national and grass roots level, to address the key issues confronting the country, even before 2010. Our problems have been caused by the wrong kind of politics and therefore also require the right political solutions that truly consider the well being of the common good. Join us in our crusade for renewed hope and meaningful change towards national survival.
