ANGRY FILIPINOS throng today to the Luneta Grandstand to register their protest with how their hard-earned taxpayer’s money is being frittered away in ghost projects and ghost nongovernmental organizations through the infamous pork barrel system.
Dubbed the Million People March, the largely unorganized and unled gathering at the Luneta Grandstand is supposed to be a show of people’s anger and indignation, rather than a show of force by the traditional political or civil society groups. Some come as angry citizens, others come as citizens still hopeful and confident of change.
The PCIJ put together some selected quotes over the years from senior government officials, including President Benigno S. Aquino III himself, on the pork barrel issue, and laid it over a soundtrack popularized by spoken word artist Lourd De Veyra.
