Former Chief Justice Lourdes Sereno and former Gabriela party-list representative Liza Masa were among familiar faces in the protest.
President Duterte featured as a 'siyokoy' or a mythological creature known for guarding large bodies of water, except he is holding the Chinese flag supposedly to symbolize his allegiance to the country.

Rain didn’t stop thousands from lambasting the Duterte government’s disregard of human rights in its war against drugs and its docility to China.
The protesters’ passion was matched by their creativity shown in their placards and other protest paraphernalia.
Among those spotted in the rally were former Chief Justice Lourdes Sereno, former Gabriela party-list representative Liza Masa, marching with farmers, fisherfolk, indigenous people, students, and families of extra-judicial killings.
