Inspired by Andres Bonifacio's activism, groups from various sectors are staging protests on Bonifacio Day, November 30, to speak out on issues surrounding the Duterte administration, including its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many of the groups will be converging along University Avenue at the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman in Quezon City on Monday morning.
Labor groups are among those taking to the streets, as the pandemic has left millions of Filipinos jobless.
Several groups are also using Bonifacio Day to condemn the Duterte administration's moves and policies. Anakbayan, Kilusang Mayo Uno, and Kadamay, for instance, are among those leading protests to call out the government's attempts to red-tag critics, as well as the controversial enactment of the anti-terror law.
Youth groups, meanwhile, are denouncing what they call "criminal negligence" in the handling of recent disasters and the coronavirus crisis.
November 30 marks the 157th birthday of Bonifacio, known as the Father of the Philippine Revolution, who was executed in 1897.
Here is a running list of protests and activities for Monday:
