Protesters at the 26th of July St. going to Tahrir Square.
From All walks of life
The place was energized. Emotions were reverberating everywhere. Tension. Tanks. But no terror.

Early morning of the Million Man March Day
These buildings housed several international journalists. I lost count of the number of APC’s, tanks and other types of military transport.
They slept the night before and just finished breakfast of bread.

I am an advocate. I am NOT neutral. I will NOT give social media mileage to members of political clans, epal, a previous candidate for the same position and those I believe are a waste of taxpayers' money.
I do not support or belong to any political party. I will vote for Vice President Leni Robredo as my President in the 2022 National Elections.
