The day the President did not stand for the poor
Right after President Benigno Aquino III left, the hall broke down into tears and shouts of rage. It was a painful sight to see. Journalists ran in all directions, not knowing which part of the scene to cover. Priests and nuns, the Catholic clergy who solidly placed their support behind the marchers, came to console the women and men who were crying and shaking in just anger. "We are not going to give up the land. Stop APECO!" People were shotuting.
