Day 2, petition signing at Piazza
The signature collection for the petition urging the governor to act in maintaining the integrity of BGTW remains as popular as ever with fellow Yanitos and expats. In 2 days, over 1300 signatures have been collected (which is astounding even before you consider the rain we've been having in the past few days).
Volunteers have been assisting in the collection of signatures, with business owners in Main street and elsewhere offering to take a copy of the petition for customers to sign. There have been debates, discussions and goodwill in bucket loads (like the rain), with high profile visits from individuals offering their support.
If there is one word which rings true throughout the signature collections it is the following:
The act or an example of defying; bold resistance to an opposing force or authority
