Various groups brought flags and posters saying that President Duterte should be held accountable.

Everyone who wanted to go on stage were allowed to express their sentiments — some gave their speeches, other prepared poems and songs.

Those who fought for democracy during martial law were also present and had voiced concern about the recent spate of killings.

Meanwhile, over a hundred classmates, friends and relatives of the slain minor walked under the rain from Sta. Quiteria church to the house of the De los Santos family. They were supposed to go to visit the crime scene, but did not push through because of heavy rain and flooding.
