#bookblockade — well, many thanks to David Archuleta’s media clout

bookblockade

Here it is. A series of unrelated events can lead to a change agent for the Philippines. If not transformative, at least it will be very informational to bloggers and news agencies around the world on the plight of the great book blockade.

Thanks to David Archuleta’s appearance in Eat Bulaga, the Philippines is now a trending topic on Twitter. If you love books, please help us cross market the #bookblockade hashtag to let the world know about the stupidity of Espele Sales. You can keep track of the conversation through www.search.twitter.com and keying in the #bookblockade hashtag.

Even Neil Gaiman is in rage:

If you are on Twitter, please re-Tweet your #bookblockade posts from your blogs and social networks and apply the hashtag. What harm can we do? After all, we’re just a bunch of uneducated comic book fanatics.

Wait a minute, where have I seen this scenario? Ah, I believe it was during the Spanish Period wherein it was forbidden to bring any books that would ‘rouse to people to fight against the colonial rule.’ I guess, the government is afraid that such books would rouse the people to fight their corrupt practices.
