It was a Monday and a holiday called National Heroes’ Day.

The rains gave way as people marched to the Luneta Park.

Ex-government officials, families, professionals, students, clubs, and groups.

The roads leading to Luneta dotted with food stalls, people selling donuts in yellow bags,

and people selling condominiums with their flyers.

The Million People March against the misuse of the government’s pork barrel.

The signature campaign and the online campaign that spread the news about the march.
