The Million People March encouraged Filipinos to put across their repulsion against the misuse of pork barrel funds.
“Kahit wala ako doon, ramdam ko ‘yung ibang galit ng mga pinoy, naiiyak sila sag alit. Siyempre hindi biro ‘yung pera, pinaghihirapan mo iyon, then mapupunta lang sa mga tao na hindi karapat-dapat,” she said.
