INC rally: Closed roads in EDSA
Roads in the vicinity of the historic EDSA Shrine are affected by the ongoing rally staged by at least a thousand members of the Iglesia ni Cristo

MANILA, Philippines – The northbound and southbound service roads along the area of the EDSA Shrine in Quezon City have been closed Friday evening, August 28, due to the ongoing rally held by members of the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC).

In an advisory, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) said the service roads were no longer passable as of 9:05 pm.

 


Motorists are also advised to take alternate routes to avoid the expected heavy traffic in the area.

At least a thousand INC members gathered in the vicinity of the historic shrine beginning Friday afternoon to continue their protest against the alleged meddling of the Department of Justice (DOJ) in the “internal affairs” of the influential church. 

The protest, which began Thursday, again targeted DOJ Secretary Leila de Lima, whom INC members accused of religious persecution. (READ: Iglesia ni Cristo rallies flock: ‘Inaapi tayo!’)
