NILANGAW! Anti-Duterte rally in People Power monument a 'wishful thinking'

They wanted a change in the government and they intended to make themselves heard last weekend February 22 in the People Power Monument.

It seems the only thing they achieved is the realization that the change they want is for their self interest only, since the super majority of the citizenry are still supporting the administration of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.

Poor attendance mared the anti-Duterte rally that was supposed to call for Duterte’s ouster. They were supposed to call for his resignation because they see the actions of the President as a puppet of China.

Rally organizers composed of members of the Kilusan Kontra Tsina, Oust Duterte Movement, Bunyog, and Coalition against Federalism in the Philippines had aimed to attract 1,000 people to join the protest. Organizers claimed 400 people joined the rally but the police said only about a hundred were at the monument as of 3 p.m.

"O nilangaw di ba? Wala pa daw isang daan yata dumating. Yan nga sinasabi ko, pipe dream lang yun (The attendance was poor right? They said the number of people who participated did not even reach a hundred. That's what I have been saying. It's just a pipe dream). It's wishful thinking," presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo said in a radio interview.
"Wala yun (It's nothing). They can always try. Wala, ganito na lang sila (They won't go beyond that)," he added.

The rally was supposed to coincide with the 34th anniversary of the 1987 EDSA People Power Revolution, which led to the ouster of dictator Ferdinand Marcos.
