"Thank You GMA" tarps from "Urban Poor" paid for by government
A memo originally circulating in Facebook reveals that the Arroyo administration is actually paying for the 'SALAMAT PANGULONG GLORIA MACAPAGAL ARROYO" tarpaulin banners that will welcome President Arroyo she visits Baguio City on August 28, reports GMANews.TV. The greeting supposedly comes from the urban poor, displaced OFWs, and Cordillera groups.
When GMANews.TV called the memo's signatory PIA Cordillera Director Helen Tibaldo asking if her office sent a fax message to Sec. Philippine Information Agency (PIA) chief Secretary Conrado Limcaoco Jr. requesting to print the tarps, she confirmed it, but declined to discuss it in detail.
