Yesterday marked the third time Presidentdelivered the State of the Nation Address (SONA) in his term as president. But it also marked the third time his SONA has met protests.
Just a few kilometers away from the Batasan Complex in Quezon City, a huge crowd filled half of Commonwealth Avenue. While just outside the Batasan Complex, militant protesters burned effigies of Aquino as well as effigies symbolizing foreign countries who they say are getting richer while the Filipino families continue to drop into poverty. There were also some violent clashes between protesters and the police but no one was severely injured. Check out the graphic photos from the protest above courtesy of acclaimed photographer Romeo Ranoco for Reuters.
