News at Eleven: "In jail, I yearned for sea and sky.

My temporary release is indeed a breath of fresh air. But freedom and justice are not achieved by mere yearning, only by struggle." These are the words uttered by poet Ericson Acosta to his elated supporters, friends, and family for the grant of temporary release from jail.

On Thursday, the Gandara Regional Trial Court in Samar granted Acosta a temporary release for a medical check-up as an answer to his lawyers motion for medical check-up filed last July 2012 due to displayed symptoms of serious renal problems by the poet.
