The April 2 “Palit Bise” or Change VP rally organized to out Leni Robredo already have between 4,000 to 6,000 people an hour before the official time at 4:00 PM. It quickly multiplied in number until midnight or so. The images can tell the total estimate of the crowd since there’s still no official head count at this time. Many mainstream media are also indifferent in such news – which is evident that Liberal Party still controls the country through media.

Supporters of the President gathered on April 2 to call for the impeachment of Vice President Leni Robredo. Pro-Du30 lawyer Bruce Rivera said, that Palit Bise is an indignation rally of the people and not administration-backed activity. It lasted until 4 PM with full entertainment and attended by personalities from show business.
Rivera announced the activity in a press conference. This is in connivance with his group “Impeach VP Leni Team.” The impeachment plan against Robredo is allegedly for “peddling lies” about the Philippines to the international community.
According to Rivera, the April 2 rally is not for politicians but for the people. It’s an event for the Filipinos people for unity against the Vice President and other Presidential appointees who are giving a bad name to the president, said organizer, Jimmy Bondoc.
Recount is a Must to Oust Leni Robredo
The organizers of the rally believe that there’s no need to impeach Robredo because she’s not the real Vice President – but the electoral protest is so slow. Impeachment is the fastest way of getting rid of her. The crowd is big enough but it can be bigger if the Binay, Honasan, Marcos and Du30 groups unite to ask SC to fast track the recount. This can happen if organizers clearly define that they want Bongbong Marcos to finally take over the VP seat that the majority of Filipinos voted for.
