Apl.de.ap named peace ambassador

SEPTEMBER 12TH:  President Benigno Aquino III will name some popular showbiz personalities as among the “National Peace Ambassadors’ during the launch of the “I am for Peace” campaign in Malacañang,  on Friday.

To be named peace ambassadors are Black Eyed Peas singer apl.de.ap, actress-television host Anne Curtis, and actor Gerald Anderson.

“Coming from diverse industries and backgrounds, the Peace Ambassadors will unite for one meaningful cause: peace,” Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process Teresita Quintos Deles said.

The “I am for Peace” campaign is one of the major activities the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP) has lined up in this year’s celebration of the peace month themed “Ako. Ikaw. Tayo. Magkakaiba, Nagkakaisa sa Kapayapaan.”

The chosen peace ambassadors will take their pledge in a ceremony in Malacanang by saying “I choose peace, I want peace – I am for peace!”

Apl.de.Ap has expressed his support to peace saying, “Peace means progress and happiness. Its influence is powerful. Right now, the Philippines is emerging. I feel it every day, and with peace nationwide, we can take our country to new heights we can all be proud of.”

The “I am for Peace” campaign seeks to engage all sectors of society in sustaining support for the country’s peace process. It will also mobilize social engagements and information dissemination especially on the significant developments and milestones of the on-going Mindanao peace talks.
