MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Philippine Daily Inquirer reported that about 15,000 to 20,000 people attended yesterday’s anti-Marcos burial rally at the Luneta Park. The rally was billed as a day of rage and unity, and also as “Black Friday.”
But reporters for The Adobo Chronicles who were at the scene yesterday belied the reported numbers.
Only 20 people attended the rainy day rally, and we have actual photos to prove it (see photos).
Of the 20 people, ten students from U.P., PUP and Arellano University belonged to the group Duterte Youth who told us that they were there to support President Rodrigo Duterte and the Supreme Court’s decision to allow the Marcos burial at Libingan Ng Mga Bayani.
The rest of the rallyists were part of the “at iba pa” group (etcetera group). They were there to advocate of love, peace, end to poverty and social justice.
