Petition to OUST Sen. Sotto for "copying" again

Sen. Tito Sotto was accused of plagiarism after his anti-RH bill speech a few weeks back, and now he is again accused of copying another speech. And some wanted him out of the Senate for doing it again.

The Senator is accused of "copying" the 1966 Kennedy speech, but with a twist. He put the words into a local language which is, Tagalog.

Kennedy's speech:

Robert Kennedy
"Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation."

"It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped.

"Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."

Sen. Tito Sotto
 Senator Tito Sotto's speech

 "Iilan ang magiging dakila sa pagbali ng kasaysayan, subalit bawat isa sa atin ay maaaring kumilos, gaano man kaliit, para ibahin ang takbo ng mga pangyayari. Kapag pinagsama-sama ang ating munting pagkilos, makalilikha tayo ng totalidad na magmamarka sa kabuuan ng kasaysayan ng henerasyong ito."

"Ang mga hindi-mabilang na iba’t ibang galaw ng katapangan at paninindigan ang humuhubog sa kasaysayan ng sangkatauhan."

"Tuwing naninindigan tayo para sa isang paniniwala, tuwing kumikilos tayo para mapabuti ang buhay ng iba, tuwing nilalabanan natin ang kawalan ng katarungan, nakalilikha tayo ng maliliit na galaw. Kapag nagkasama-sama ang mumunting galaw na mga ito, bubuo ito ng isang malakas na puwersang kayang magpabagsak maging ng pinakamatatag na dingding ng opresyon."

Petition to Oust:

One is enough, 2 is too much and they don't want to have 3 in a row for the Senator. On a site, they wrote a petition to oust or remove Senator Sotto from the Senate. One million signature in 30  days, the petitioner is Matt Quiros.

The petitioner wrote 3 reasons, he is a popular public figure yet he uses his political and showbiz influence to spread misinformation about reproductive health, he is a serial plagiarist and shows no remorse about it and he is  sexist.

On the same site, if you want to support the petition, you have to sign your name, email address and write your reason why he has to be ousted in the Senate. There are 2 thousand plus people signed the petition.
