Photo Story: Practicing our freedom of assembly (2)

This series of photos were taken on September 27, 2005, just days after President Arroyo declared Mendiola and Recto Avenue to be no-rally zones under the euphemism “calibrated preemptive response.” Arroyo was neck-deep in the “Hello Garci” controversy. Student and youth activists participated in this rally, which was the first to openly defy the Malacañang order.
