SIMULTANEOUS INTERNET PROTEST ALL OVER THE WORLD

  • Netizens may also join the protest from their homes by sharing their sentiments through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #ScrapPork.

It's a protest driven by anger over the misuse of public funds, but Filipinos have been reminded that the so-called "Million People March" slated at the Luneta Park Monday should be peaceful.

"All are welcome," guidelines on the rally making rounds online Sunday said even as it added that "this is a peaceful gathering so always be respectful of others."

"It's a citizen's gathering," Filipina blogger Noemi Lardizabal-Dado said in her post, adding that there is "no central organizer" for the protest.

Plans for the massive rally against corruption have been floated amid a snowballing of sentiments via social networking sites over the so-called pork barrel scam.

The 10-billion scandal accused lawmakers of diverting their Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) to nonexistent nongovernment organizations led by Janet Lim-Napoles.

The rally coinciding with National Heroes Day "is not about one group or one individual, as it is about a multitude that stand against the pork barrel," professor Katrina Stuart Santiago in her blog.

"[Y]ou and I can go, without an organizational banner or t-shirt defining us, and with only our own families and friends," Santiago said in her blog radikalchick.

The movement, which will push through despite President Benigno Aquino III's call to scrap the PDAF Friday, is expected to start at 9 a.m. across Manila's Quirino Grandstand.

"[W]ear what you want, come in any color, come as an individual or as a member of the group, bring a flag especially if you expect students from your school, or more people to gather around your stage," Santiago said.

Pinoys have been encouraged to wear comfortable clothing and footwear, however, and bring food and drinks, mats and garbage bags for the cleanup afterwards. They may also bring music and entertainment, conduct small discussion groups and visit other groups views.

But bloggers involved in organizing the event said what Filipinos shouldn't forget to bring are "friends and your conviction" as well as "commitment to be the change you want to see."

They may also "have a protest party in your house, church, or meeting hall and invite friends to monitor the event on television," Lardizabal-Dado said.

The Philippine National Police has been placed on full alert with some 2,000 officers and K9 units are allegedly on standby for the event to ensure peace and order.

"Look after your own group and make sure we maintain proper decorum and discipline," Lardizabal-Dado said.

"Let's show the world that we can all gather in a peaceful, harmonious, cooperative and caring way," she added.
