Encouraging the nation to support Nick Perlas after the elections

Pin It

I believe he is in the mold to lead; has an unquestionnable passion to offer new politics; has a track record to boast of especially about environmental protection. Even not in power, he was able to influence environmental decisions through his resolutions. But then, he lacks the governance experience and political will.

He may have jumped so soon into the contest of Presidency, but nonetheless, his courage is admirable. his intentions are the purest and most sincere among all. One good thing, this exposure surely leads into more advocacies for him to steer. His coming out into the the politics should be an eye opener that there are really selfless people who wants to bring positive social change. And this will not stop on May 10. His commitment to empower new politics has just began. Sadly, people who have been long wanting for alternatives don't bother to look at them at all. Blame it to the partisan system. Since he has no political party to back him up, he's "looked into as weak."  Popularity remains the name of the game.

VIDEO (Who is Nick Perlas)

“Nicanor Perlas has no political background to speak of. He has never been elected to public office. However, he has served as technical consultant/resource person to the United Nations (UNDP, FAO, UNCSD, UNICEF), the Philippine government (Office of the President, Senate, House of Representatives, NEDA, DSWD, DA, DENR, and official Philippine delegations to the UN and APEC), and donor agencies as well as various civil society organizations and movements. He was a resource person in more than 90 global conferences and 140 national conferences as well as an author of more than 500 articles including “Shaping Globalization: Civil Society, Cultural Power, and Threefolding.” Perlas co-wrote the Philippine Agenda 21 which is the official government blueprint for sustainable development and was adopted by no less than the United Nations as a preferred approach to solving world problems. Though not a public official, his work led to concrete policies today such as the laws which involved a multi-sectoral approach to solving poverty and introducing sustainable development. Among his many successful civil society activities led to the mothballing of the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant (BNPP), the banning of 32 pesticide formulations, and regulation of genetic engineering products and processes. His role in uncovering the anomalies in the BNPP led him to go into hiding due to threats on his life. In recognition of his work, he received the Right Livelihood Award or Alternative Nobel Prize; Global 500 Award or Earth Warrior Award given by the UN Environmental Program; and the Outstanding Filipino (TOFIL) among others.” - POC
