The protesters called for the junking of the Rice Tariffication Law, the Anti-Terror Act, and the ouster of President Rodrigo Duterte.

“Muli tayong umapak sa Mendiola ngayong araw upang ibaba ang hatol ng #HukumangMagbubukid sa rehimeng Duterte. Mabuhay ang sambayanang lumalaban!” the KMU said in its Facebook post.
