“Labanan ang dayaan at atake sa mamamayan (Combat cheating and all attacks committed against the citizenry)” some of the posters on display read, while others focused on the “looming dictatorship.”

The rally took place hours after new leaders and reelected officials were proclaimed winners at the PFVR Gymnasium here which served as election canvassing center for Baguio. (Editor: Eden Estopace)
