Scorching hot March 8 rally


It was a scorching 44 degrees last Sunday. But the women refused to be confined to their houses. Organizers from Gabriela estimate the marchers from Welcome Rotonda to Mendiola Bridge to have peaked at around 10,000. Among the issues raised by Gabriela (which, by the way, is celebrating its 25th anniversary) were the Visiting Forces Agreement and the devastating effects of the ecnomic crisis on working women.
