Netizens use online art, memes to protest ‘pork’

By |


MANILA, Philippines—Filipinos are using their creativity and the power of the Internet to express their outrage over the allegedly anomalous pork barrel fund.

From protest art to witty memes, they bank on both humor and rage to convince netizens to join Monday’s nationwide protest that aims to scrap the pork barrel fund.

“Abolish, not suspend!” and “Makibaka, wag magbaboy!” are just some of the tag lines being shared all over the cybersphere.

One group has even started its own “selfie protest campaign” by encouraging people to come up with their own personal protest photos.

One million people are expected to join Monday’s protest at Luneta. Dubbed the “Million People March,” people are expected to converge at the historic landmark for decentralized programs and a “massive picnic.”

Other converge points are:

  • Cebu – Fuente
  • Cagayan de Oro – Gaston Park, 2 p.m.
  • Davao – Rizal Park, 9 a.m.
  • Iloilo City – Museo Iloilo or Plaza Libertad
  • Dagupan – City Plaza
  • Baguio – People’s Park (Malcolm Square)
