Pilipino Ako started this petition to Office of the President; Philippines government officials and

As we transition to GCQ, many Filipinos are forced to look for other modes of transportation to get to work and to feed their families. One of the solutions that most have found is by riding a bicycle.

Take note: not all frontliners were able to go to their workplace smoothly (some can't even work) during the initial phase on lockdown. They had to look for other means and it was just good that some private individuals cared enough to help them even if some of these people don't have work themselves. If there's a will, there's a way.

While we understand that the government "HAVE PLANS" for bike lanes, it would just be fair to say that they fail us either unintentionally or intentionally.

With this said,

WE WANT, NOW CHALLENGE, AND DEMAND THE GOV. OFFICIALS AND PERSONNELS (WHO ARE RECEIVING 5-6 DIGITS SALARY FROM THE PEOPLE'S MONEY THROUGH TAXES) ESP. THOSE WHO ARE INSENSITIVE ABOUT THE SITUATION OF THE FILIPINO WORKERS/COMMUTERS/EVEN THE FRONTLINERS (MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS), TO DO BIKE TO WORK, EVEN JUST FOR A WEEK, OR EVEN JUST FOR A DAY. THIS IS NOT LIMITED TO BIKING BUT IT WOULD BE FAIR TO ASK FOR YOU NOT TO USE PRIVATE VEHICLES TO GO TO WORK SO YOU'LL KNOW AND EXPERIENCE WHAT THE FILIPINO PEOPLE ARE EXPERIENCING.

YOU SAY YOU WANT TO PROTECT THE CYCLISTS AND YOU WANT TO BUILD BIKE LANES. BE IN TOUCHED WITH REALITY! THERE IS A NEED NOW.  BY DISALLOWING BIKE COMMUTERS TO USE ROADS WITHOUT ACTUAL PLAN AND HELP, THE GOVT. AGENCIES AND ITS OFFICIALS TAKES AWA THE CIVIL RIGHTS AND THE FREEDOM OF THE FILIPINO PEOPLE. ALSO, THEY ARE NOT IN TOUCHED WITH REALITY AND DOESN'T ADDRESS THE CURRENT NEED. WE DONT NEED MASSIVE CHANGES. WE WANT ISSUES TO BE ADDRESSED, NOW! NOT IN 5 YEARS NOR IN 5 DECADES.

THIS PANDEMIC IS MAKING US CHANGE OUR WAYS AND GIVES US OPPORTUNITIES TO MAKE OURSELVES AND OUR LANDS.

IF YOU MUST, TAKE SALARY CUTS TO BE GIVEN TO THOSE WHO CANNOT AFFORD TO WORK OR TO GO THEIR WORK FOR VARIOUS REASONS, ONE BEING THE INABILITY TO GO TO WORK PLACES BEC. OF THE LACK OF MEANS TO DO SO. IT MAY ALSO BE USED FOR THESE KINDS (BIKE LANES INFRASTRUCTURE) OF PROJECTS. THE MMDA SAID THEY WERE WAITING FOR THE BUDGET. IT MAYBE USED FOR THIS PROJECT.

WE JUST WANT A SAFE COUNTRY! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT.

WE ARE ALL THE SAME, FILIPINO PEOPLE LIVING IN OUR LANDS, SO IT IS JUST RIGHT THAT WE DO THE SAME THINGS AND EXPERIENCE THE SAME AS WHAT THE OTHER EXPERIENCE.

IN THIS PANDEMIC, WE AIM TO HELP EACH OTHER UP AND THIS PETITION AIMS, NOT TO FURTHER DIVIDE OUR COUNTRY, BUT TO FINALLY UNITE, TO REALIZE THAT WE'RE ALL HUMANS, WE'RE ALL FILIPINOS AND HOPE THAT EVERYONE WILL HELP EACH OTHER AND BE GROUNDED.. 

WE'VE LONG GOTTEN OUR FREEDOM BUT THE TIES HAVEN'T BEEN REMOVED YET.

If this would help you, the people on their pedestals: https://www.manilatimes.net/2020/04/18/news/top-stories/frontliner-killed-after-truck-slams-into-bike-in-manila/715346/
