Quiapo and Makati Rally

Last February 15, 2008, the Bangsamoro National Solidarity Movement or BANGSA led a protest rally against US Forces in Mindanao after the Friday prayers at the Golden Mosque in Quiapo, Manila.

During the rally local religious leaders took turns in lambasting the expansion of US Military presence for a supposed joint US-Philippine Forces exercises in mainland Mindanao, particularly in the Lanao provinces. BANGSA leaders also condemned the recent Massacre in Maimbung, Sulu and the alleged involvement of US Forces in that incident. Rally organizers also called on the Government to resume the stalled peace talks with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).

Later in the afternoon members of BANGSA trooped to Makati to join the people’s protest rally against corruption in Government and the call for the resignation of Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.
