Here’s my photo coverage of the Million People March in Ayala that was held yesterday in Makati City. I received a Facebook event invite about the scheduled 2nd leg of the Million People March, the last march was held in Luneta and now the 2nd is here in Makati City. I went here because I got a scheduled event coverage in Mandarin Hotel, and it was a great timing that I’ll be covering two events happening in one venue which is in Makati. My plan is to shoot a time lapsed of the whole event but I forgot to bring my tripod and then I decided to have a photo coverage of the people and the scene. I plan it well for that day and I’m glad everything went so smooth.
The purpose of the march is to voice out more concerns of our people and hoping that our President Aquino will listen to the wish of our people that they should take actions and clear out the pork barrel, PDAF and DAP dramas. The march and program was held right infront of the statue of Ninoy Aquino, father of our president. I felt lots of anger and depression coming from the people who joined this march, some of them are not rally regulars, they are the people who work so hard to get a better life and after the pork barrel scam drama, everyone felt that we got duped by our national officials for so many years by pocketing the country’s fund, that can be useful for the country’s growth, education and health upgrades and agriculture. I wonder who will ever listen to us, or who will ever take action, I just don’t know, but I hope they hear this shout “scrap pork now!!”. The organizers of this Million People March are confident that there will be more march in the future, they will not stop until someone listened from our government.
