The protests, part of the Global Climate Strike, reverberated around the world with 5,800 activities…
Defying the government’s ban on mass gathering on the day of President Duterte’s 5th delivery of his State-of-the-Nation address, hundreds gathered at the University of the Philippines campus to protest the government’s incompetence and growing authoritarianism.
The messages shown in placards cover a range of issues from anti-China, to anti-terror law, to anti-mining, anti-media harassment to criticisms of the government’s focus on control rather than allowing livelihood under a lockdown situation.
Protesters came in different shapes and colors proving that restrictions do not dampen the people’s dissent. They only make people creative.
