MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Philippine women’s groups led by GABRIELA are finalizing plans for a huge protest rally — involving 30,000 — on March 8, International Women’s Day.
The mass action is aimed at calling attention to what they say is the dictatorial regime of President Rodrigo Duterte. The women are also staging the rally in support of embattled Chief Justice Lourdes Sereno who is facing an impeachment complaint in Congress.
The Adobo Chronicles caught up with Sister Mary John Mananzan of the Movement Against Tyrrany, one of the protesting groups, and we asked her for the truth in as far as the expected attendance at the rally is concerned.
As a messenger and servant of God, Sister Mananzan could not lie and she told us the real score.
She said the 30K that they promised refers to 30 kilos of Jollibee Chicken Joy that they have ordered to feed whoever attends their rally.
Truth be told.
