Vice President Leni Robredo can only repeat the LP slogan: “NEVER again to Martial Law and dictatorship for her democracy speech. This happens during the 45th anniversary of the declaration of Martial Law by the late President Ferdinand Marcos, father of rival Bongbong Marcos who now prepares for the recount with regards to his electoral protest against her.

[VIDEO]: Here are some scenes at the Rizal Park where thousands of protesters joined the “End Tyranny’ rally on Thursday, Sept. 21, 2017, the 45th anniversary of the declaration of martial law by President Ferdinand Marcos.
National Day of Protest
The LP’s coalition failed to highlight the alleged continued human rights violation, the killings and the smuggling of P6.5-billion shabu. The President made the same day the National Day of Protest. So, it was a mere battle between the pro and the anti-administration. The anti groups gathered in Luneta while the government’s supporters are in Plaza Miranda.
Kiko versus Gabby
Senator Kiko Pangilinan cannot even understand Du30’s democratic action. That’s why he is mocked via social media as the ex-husband of his wife, Gabby Conception graces the pro-administration crowd. It is remembered that the principal sponsor of the latter’s wedding with Sharon Cuneta was the late President Ferdinand Marcos.
Du30’s National Day of Protest declaration is a genuine proof that he is for democracy and even supports freedom of expression for everyone. He welcomes all protests for as long as they won’t hurt anybody or destroy properties. It’s also a non-working day for government employees and schools.
Robredo’s Undemocratic Strategy
Bongbong Marcos receives a Manifestation with Urgent Ex-Parte Motion from Robredo again. She asks the PET to clarify whether Marcos should pay for the monthly expenses incurred by COMELEC for the lease of its Sta. Rosa, Laguna, warehouse. She also wanted to know whether he should pay for the costs of the Voting Counting Machines. This is despite the Tribunal’s ruling that the monthly expenses of the Sta. Rosa, Laguna warehouse “is not incidental to the retrieval and transportation of ballot boxes to the Tribunal in connection with the instant Protest and Counter-Protest. On the VCM inquiry, the Tribunal finds such matter to be outside the issues.
