Multi-sectoral group, VACC hold rally vs. APEC

LEGAZPI CITY -- Members of a multi-sectoral group, along with representatives from Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC), are currently holding a protest against the Albay Power and Energy Corporation (APEC) at Penaranda Park in this city.

APEC
The protest will run from 9 AM to 1 PM, organizers said.

Chief among the group's gripes are the alleged "poor services and overpricing of electricity charges."

Ephraim de Vera, one of the members of the multi-sectoral group, earlier this month slammed the power corporation's "abusive, inhuman, inconsiderate and utter violation of [the] basic rights of consumers under the Magna Carta for residential consumers and RA 9136."

Last night, de Vera posted: "In Barangay Bacolod, Tabaco City, the power lines of ALECO Member Consumers haven't restored by APEC but the overhead line or the primary line is already energized. APEC then advice to get clearance and pay their bills first prior the power switch on. But the barangay people themselves managed to switch on their power lines. APEC with police assistance went to the said barangay but the Consumers blocked and prevented APEC from shutting off the consumers lines. I think this one is a very good example in thwarting the abusive and unethical behavior of APEC. Albayano, maghiriro na po kita gabos.. Salamat.."

The group is calling on consumers to wear black and red during the rally to show their indignation. Further, they are discouraging consumers from paying their power bills.

Meanwhile, APEC is continuing its efforts to restore power in the province, according to its latest announcements on Facebook. -- BICOLSTANDARD.COM
