Convert

My friends in the opposition have forgotten that the constitution of the Philippines was amended in 1973 with their participation.

Audience participation can often inject a dose of adrenalin into your average dial-tone literary reading, especially if a handful of audience-members are mentally unhinged, and let's face it - you can always depend on at least one crackpot at these things.

- Lynn Coady

Firmly

We firmly believe the environmental issues cannot be addressed without extensive public participation, but people need to be informed before they can get involved.
