Lobby on Ayala
turning to social network
BY CARLA GOMEZ
A group of organizations and private citizens, calling on AyalaLand Inc. not to pull out of its plan to develop the 7.7-hectare property of the Negros Occidental provincial government, will be bringing their campaign to social media sites in the hope that it will go viral, Nestor Evaristo, vice president of the Hotel and Restaurant Association of Negros Occidental, said yesterday.
They have also started a text brigade campaign, he said.
“COA has spoken. There are no more legal impediments for the Ayala-Capitol Development Project. We, the people of Bacolod City and Negros Occidental, call on AyalaLand to reconsider their decision to pull out from this project, and appeal to SMPHI, to withdraw their court case against the province and its officials to give Negros a chance to grow and develop,” their text message says.
