MALOLOS CITY, Bulacan, March 19 — Reelectionist Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero has joined the now more than six million Filipinos supporting the advocacy of the “Yes For Peace-Bayanihan para sa Kapayapaan” movement.

Escudero, during a press conference at the Max's Restaurant here Monday afternoon, said he is supporting the cause and the clarion call of the "Yes for Peace movement" for the achievement of a long and lasting peace in the country

“Yes! Who would not say yes for peace?”, Escudero said when asked if he will join the growing ranks of Filipinos who have responded to "Yes for Peace" and are willing to participate in the peace process as “Kabayani para sa Kapayapaan."

Ernesto Alcanzare, lead organizer of the "Yes for Peace Movement" said that as of February 25, 2103, there were already 6,155,945 Filipinos who have thus far responded to the "Yes for Peace movement" in calling for open and participatory peace talks in line with President Aquino’s commitment to a transparent and and participatory process.

Escudero, who is now seeking a second term, also expressed support for a peaceful solution to the Sabah conflict.

He said that President Benigno S. Aquino III is exerting all diplomatic efforts in solving the crisis which have already claimed lives both from supporters of the Sultan of Sulu and the Malaysian police and military forces.

"The Filipino people should speak with one voice and support the President,” he said.

Alcanzare also thanked Governor Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado, who was one of the respondents when the current questions based on the four goals to peace and the six paths to peace were being field-tested.(PNA)
