GMA loves Merci: A day of protest on GMA’s 64th Birthday

A day of protest on the 64th Birthday of former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo

The Oust Merci Gutierrez (OMG) Movement, a coalition of civil society movements and mass organizations will be marching in three fronts on Tuesday (5 April 2011) to muster support against the Ombudsman, who is known as an avid and rabid defender of Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Members of the Movement will start the day which coincides with the 64th birthday of GMA, by tying ribbons along Katipunan and at the gates of La Vista where former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is residing. Members of OMG will proceed to the residence of the Ombudsman in Malate, Manila to reenact the visit of GMA after the Ombudsman was impeached. In the afternoon, the Movement will go back to La Vista to “treat” the president with a birthday party and gifts.
