Manila -- (Philippines) The Mayor Gives a Talk in Sarangani

The mayor of Manila, Lito Atienza, gave a talk to some seventy college students at Sarangani Study Center on November 11. Atienza, an architect, is well known for his urban renewal projects and his efforts to restore and preserve the historic sites in the capital.

The talk was followed by a lively discussion, with many questions being raised by the students. Mayor Atienza made clear his opposition to certain anti-life legislative proposals being discussed in Congress and encouraged his audience to take an active role in the public debate.
