An estimated 600,000 people flocked to Rizal Park, locally known as ‘Luneta’, at the nation’s capital today to protest against the pork barrel system. The protest rally dubbed as #MillionPeopleMarch started on a Facebook post and event by an artist and a regular employee, respectively. It asked for the abolition of the PDAF (Priority Development Assistance Fund) that the legislators misused and to prosecute them for stealing money from the taxpayers.
This is a protest rally powered by social media, the youth and the middle class. It wasn’t a call against an individual, but against a system that is corrupt and only favors those who are in power.
This is a protest rally where every walks of life is affected. This is a protest rally that shows our government that WE are their boss.
It was attended by students and the working class, Catholics and moslems, the poor and the rich, activists and first-timers. We may have different backgrounds, but each and every one of us wants accountability and transparency in the government. We want to know where our and our parents’ and our kids’ taxes go… and it shouldn’t be on their pockets.
It was a very loud sentiment that this is enough, we are pushed too much. It doesn’t end here at Luneta. The revolution only started.
It's too early for wandering, she thought.
My home is dying. It's walls - decaying. Touch the cracks on the ground and gaze up to the night sky. Know our thoughts are deluded. We are isolated.
Home, back from the irony of calmness of mind while walking in the midst of hectic Metro Manila.

We shall walk together but for a while, and then you will find your own path.
Maybe the world simply operates faster now, but I miss the days when my days had more breathing room. When I would sit in cafés.
