There’s a growing interest in the Philippine politics now that will make the soap operas ratings go down.
It started with an exposé in the newspaper about a businesswoman, involving a scam worth 10 billion pesos ($230 million); then it got deeper; and there goes the dirty secrets of the Senate and the House of Representatives. We are in a big trouble. Something must be done.
Expressing your anger online is a good thing sometimes (and not all the time). It started with one musician who just wanted to express anger outside the streets. Then the date and place was set; good thing it’s a holiday.
More than 100,000 gathered in the National park.
I felt good that many are becoming more vigilant. Those who never went outside the street to protest joined.
I realized that this is democracy. We are the government and not those in power. As our President told us, we are the boss.
The People March last Monday proves that we can express our anger as a nation against the people seated in the government without wanting to oust the President.
Not all tomatoes are rotten; we just need to throw the bad ones away.
This is our stance: Unite against corruption!
