Ka Satur's online adventure -- an update

Just an update to my earlier chat session with Satur Ocampo.

Aside from editor Joey Alarilla, another journalist present in the session was Erwin Oliva, who also posted about the event in the site.

"His right to freely express himself as a journalist and a Filipino citizen was curtailed 34 years ago when Martial Law was declared," Oliva began his report. "But on Thursday, House of Representatives Deputy Minority Leader and Bayan Muna (People First) Representative Satur Ocampo was in front of an Apple laptop computer, leading his first Internet-based chat and press conference. Ocampo led the conference held with several members of the local and international media, constituents and guests who included New York-based Filipino feminist and writer Ninotchka Rosca."

Read his story posted in the here. He also wrote about it (and mentioned this site) in his personal blog.

Bayan Muna media officer Tonyo also wrote about the event. Check his post here. Tonyo, we should do more press conferences like this.
