Just arrived after joining Walk for Life at Quirino Grandstand. There were a lot of people this morning. Unfortunately the participants were only allowed to march around the block fronting Quirino Grandstand. We did not even march on Roxas Blvd. It was something questionable since, I have joined Fun Runs before along Roxas. Fun Run pwede but Walk for Life hindi?
So many people were there that we have circled the block but the tail-end of the participants have not yet marched out of the field.
Bishop Soc during the gathering said, “Bakit tayo nagtitipon ng madaling araw dito? Kasi ngayon ang oras kung kailan may pinapatay.” I quoted this from memory. I know many things that have been said during the gathering will not come out faithfully out on our media. But threats have been expressed by the government against holding such events. This will not come out officially, but it was clear to us who were there. Threats at this time? Demokrasya pa kaya ito?
The event was already free as of yesterday because attendees were more than expected.
