Jose De Venecia III, the first to blow the whistle on the bribes and overpricing in the National Broadband Network-ZTE deal speaks to students Friday, March 07, 2008 in Davao City in southern Philippines. De Venecia is currently on a campus tour in Mindanao where he speaks about government corruption before tens of thousands of students and supporters. Another witness in the flawed NBN deal, a former government executive, Jun Lozada, is also touring different schools in Luzon. But Philippine education officials have banned Lozada and De Venecia from schools to prevent them from speaking about government corruption and scandals involving President Gloria Arroyo and her family. Students have joined calls for Arroyo to resign over corruption allegations. Below, Arroyo waves to supporters during the International WomensDay Celebration on Friday in Malacanang’s Rizal Hall in Manila.(Photos by Keith Bacongco / AKP Images and Rey Baniquet / Office of the President for the Mindanao Examiner)
