STORY OF THE DAY


‘BIGGEST, BROADEST’ DEMONSTRATION EXPECTED ON PRES. DUTERTE’S 3RD SONA



The “biggest” and “broadest” mass demonstration since President Rodrigo Duterte assumed his post in 2016.

This was how Bayan spokesperson Teddy Casiño described the protest action to be staged by different militant groups under the “United People’s SONA” on Monday, July 23 – the day of President Duterte’s 3rd State of the Nation Address (SONA).

Different militant organizations from the church, women, labor, transport and agriculture sector, among others, will join forces to oppose the Duterte administration’s anti-people policies — such as charter change and the supposed “tyranny” of the chief executive.

More than 30,000 protesters are expected to join the protest which will be staged at the Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City.
