Organizers of Road Revolution 2 have apologized for the problems caused by the road closures in downtown Cebu City last Saturday, September 24.
The complaints, however, will not stop the group from their campaign. “Road Rev will not shut down anytime soon,” said 350.org country coordinator Vince Cinches
in a Sun.Star Cebu report.
Cinches said that in their next staging of the event, they will have a “checklist of necessary technical and social preparations.”
He said the next Road Revolution will be held on Osmeña Blvd., the venue of the first one last June 12, and only half of the road will be closed to motor vehicles. Organizers will also be consulting establishments on Osmeña Blvd.
THE Department of Health (DPH) has ordered public hospitals to stop the practice of making registered nurses pay to work as trainees.
DOH Secretary Enrique Ona signed an order last August 22 terminating all nurse training programs in public hospitals for not being consistent with provisions of the law.
DOH said some hospitals promote “nurse volunteerism to justify the collection of training fees.”
