Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — Various groups are holding protest actions in Metro Manila on Saturday to commemorate the International Human Rights Day.
One of them is the militant group Karapatan, which installed an effigy at the Liwasang Bonfacio in Manila.
They said there is a need to be vigilant against the authoritarian tendencies of Duterte.
The group is also seeking justice for martial law victims and campaigning against the return of the Marcoses in the political arena.
They also urged the administration to fulfill its commitments to end contractualization and pursue an independent foreign policy, among others.
The militant group’s formal program will start at 4 p.m., which will culminate with a torch march to Mendiola at 6 p.m.
