Kodao Productions presents a short news report of the June 30, 2009 People’s March Against Charter Change. Filipinos showed their outrage against charter change and the Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo regime in a festive and militant march. In a touching display of solidarity, residents and working people poured out the streets of Manila greeting and cheering as the protesters, who came from three different assembly points, passed by. The mobilization converged at the Liwasang Bonifacio and staged a short cultural program.
The June 10, 2009 anti-charter change rally in Makati is probably the biggest protest action led by Bagong Alyansang Makabayan against the Macapagal-Arroyo government so far. Here’s our coverage of the protest action.
