ALERT TO ALL FILIPINO AMERICAN COMMUNITY ACTIVISTS

Los Angeles–The present Greater Echo Park Neighborhood Council (GEPENC) is cooking up another scheme to emasculate the Filipino American community in Echo Park.

GEPENC is proposing to break up District 5 and creating a District 6 that they call East Beaudry District. They will make D5 as smaller district with only three (3) representatives.

As a move, the GEPENC is set to censure or remove the representatives of District 5 on their meeting on May 2o, a prelude to dissolving Ditrict 5 or breaking up.

District 5 at present is the most populous district and have 5 representatives. Now, they want to reduce it into a non-entity.

Plain and Simple Gerrymandering

This is what we call GERRYMANDERING. Let us foil and frustrate this long standing scheme of some anti-Filipino elements in GEPENC.

They wish to divide us by emasculating us and foster inter-ethnic division.

HUWAG MATING PABAYAAN ANG MGA MADADAYA, INGGIT AT GALIT SA PILIPINONG ELEMENTONG ITO.

IPAGLABAN ANG DISTRICT 5 NA BUO AT IISA!

PANAHON NA MANINDIGAN TAYO! IPAGLABAN ANG HISTORIC FILIPINOTOWN!
