Progressives lead ‘Black Friday’ anti-Marcos rally

Progressive organizations came out in force to lead the Black Friday protest at the Quirino Grandstand last November 25.

Led by the Campaign Against the Return of the Marcoses to Malacanang (CARMMA), the rally steadily grew until tens of thousands eventually flocked to the venue participated by students and private and government office workers.

Protesting the burial of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos with full military honors at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, the rally was the biggest protest action so far against a Rodrigo Duterte decision in his five-month presidency.
