Youth for Accountability and Truth Now (Youth Act Now

)
As the nation faces an intense political and social crisis, the Filipino youth is called upon to take up its role as bearers of the future and stand up for truth and accountablity in government. The Filipino youth must act now. Youth for Accountability and Truth Now or Youth Act Now is an alliance of student councils, publications, national youth and student organizations, community-based youth, young professionals, artists and prominent youth leaders and personalities. The formation of Youth ACT Now marks the further strengthening of youth and student participation nationwide in the collective aspiration to knock on the conscience of our leaders and to awaken hope in the spirit of the Filipino people to bring forth a movement for truth and social change. As young people moved with our conscience and aspirations for good governance and accountability for wrong deeds done, we condemn the gross and systematic plunder of the country’s coffers and resources for the benefit of a few influential government officials and cronies. We believe that national leaders should be accountable to the people and that government officials should portray the highest standards of integrity to be able to propel the nation towards genuine progress, justice and peace. We strongly believe in the sovereign right that rests on the people to change a morally bankrupt and corrupt regime with a conscientious leadership that can genuinely unite the nation and can bring forth meaningful social change.
