INC protestors in Manila transfer to EDSA near Megamall
MANILA, Philippines – Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) members in front of the Department of Justice (DOJ) on Friday night, August 28, trooped to the Mandaluyong part of the iconic EDSA highway to stage a bigger protest against government.
Protest leaders announced that INC members should now troop to EDSA-Shaw Boulevard.
A smaller group of INC members earlier trooped near Megamall along EDSA, the iconic site of the People Power Revolution that toppled dictator Ferdinand Marcos in 1986.
Once the announcement was made before 8 pm on Friday evening, the INC members in Padre Faura removed the posters onstage.
The INC members have begun their march to EDSA as of posting time.
The INC is staging these rallies as it slams the DOJ, especially Justice Secretary Leila de Lima, for alleged religious persecution. (READ: Iglesia ni Cristo rallies flock: ‘Inaapi tayo!’)
This comes after expelled INC minister Isaias Samson Jr filed an illegal detention case against INC leaders before the DOJ.
