Photos of people and scene at #MillionPeopleMarch #ScrapPork in Luneta Park

Million March in Luneta to Scrap Pork  photos by Azrael Coladilla
August 26, 2013 - After I attended my morning meeting in Makati, I took a cab and then went to Luneta Park to join the Million People March against corruption, abolition of pork barrel, and shout out to our government to investigate those who are involved in pocketing the people's fund. This peaceful picnic protest started in a Facebook event page that attract thousands of Facebook users, the attendance grew more after it was highlighted by our local media.

The event happened at the same day that our nation is celebrating “National Heroes Day”, and for this day, we commemorate our national heroes for defending our country and us living Filipinos to fight corruption till the end.

This is the new age for pinoy netizens and non-netizens to join forces to wake up those who are sleeping in their high chairs.

I prepared for this since last week, but as I arrived in the venue, I noticed that the program is already finished and people are started to exit the park peacefully, but I saw lots of scenes and actions after the program, so I took out my two cameras Olympus E-520 and Olympus E-PL1 and started capturing the last few moments of the Million People March to Scrap Pork.

I want to immortalize this event and moment in photos and in blog post just to remind everyone that we should watch our government carefully and start to ask question when, how, what – happened ? in other words.. anyare sa pera ng bayan? bakit billion piso ang nabulsa? Those money should be used in developing our country to be better and help the ones who needs it.

This is just the beginning…for change and start a new.

here are my photos
