A Campaign Run on Executive Order No. 255
The Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang–aawit (OPM), a non–profit organization of professional singers, will be having a campaign run dubbed as Mission: EO 255 Fun Run to ensure public awareness about the Executive Order (EO) 255 issued in 1987 by Former President Aquino, requiring all radio stations to broadcast a minimum of four original Filipino musical compositions in every clock hour and for other purposes and help create a more conducive and sustainable environment for Filipino music artists.
This year, Mission: EO 255 is happening on 19 July 2015 at the UP Academic Oval to kickoff the Linggo Ng Musikang Pilipino or OPM Week declared by His Excellency President Benigno S. Aquino III under Proclamation No. 933 announcing last week of July of every year as OPM Week.
