Protesters march to PNoy's home on eve of SONA
MANILA, Philippines – More than a hundred protesters from outside Metro Manila marched to the residence of President Benigno Aquino III along Times St. in Quezon City on Sunday, July 21, a day before his State of the Nation Address (SONA).
The protesters, all members of the militant group Bagong Alyansang Makabayan - Southern Luzon chapter, complained about the problems besetting their region such as the displacement of poor communities in Cavite due to the LRT extension project.
"With all the burden that Noynoy and his minions are giving our people, there is no fitting time to expose and disown his troubled regime but during this time when he reports nothing but lies to the nation," the group's spokesperson Andrianne Mark Ng said.
The group fought with the police upon reaching Times St., but no one got hurt.
