The day the nation prayed for freedom from Chacha and repression

Here are photos taken during the June 12, 2006 march led by Bayan and the Panalanging Bayan (an interfaith worship service for the nation) spearheaded by Catholic, Protestant and Evangelical bishops, Muslim ulama and a Hindu representative.

The mid-afternoon march from Welcome Rotonda to Liwasang Bonifacio elicited attention from the people of Sampaloc and Quiapo. Cheers greeted Ka Satur and the other leaders as they emerged from the underpass connecting Lerma and Quiapo, with one denizen at the Nazarena basilica approaching the elder leftist statesman and handing him sampaguita garlands (you could see Ka Satur holding them in one of the pictures).

Meanwhile, nilangaw daw ang Luneta activity ni Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. Marahil, mismong si Rizal ay gusto sanang umalis at magmartsa!
