BOB Casas is the brother of my friend and media colleague Gemma Casas. He is one of the 23 Filipino crewmen of the bulk carrier ship MV Irene who continue to be hostages of the Somali pirates who seized their ship off the Gulf of Aden on April 14, 2009.
May I request you dear readers to kindly sign this petition urging the officials of the Philippine government, foreign governments, as well of international organizations to do everything in their power to free these hostages.
If you have a blog or web site, pls. publish a link to the online petition as well so we can gather more signatures, faster.
