Robredo, Pangilinan supporters hold simultaneous motorcades

/ 04:46 PM October 23, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — Supporters of Vice President Leni Robredo and Senator Francis Pangilinan conducted nationwide simultaneous motorcades on Saturday to show support for the tandem in the 2022 elections.

Around 10,000 vehicles across 50 cities nationwide participated in the motorcades, according to Team Leni Robredo (TLR), a group of volunteers that organized the activity.

TLR Communications Head Ben Bernabe said that the initiative is the volunteers’ public declaration of frustration at leaders who are incompetent, corrupt, and insensitive to the needs of ordinary Filipinos, especially during the pandemic.

“What started initially as a small motorcade in a small town turned into a national campaign – thanks to volunteers like us who passed on the idea to volunteers through word of mouth,” he said in a statement.

Bernabe said supporters of Robredo and Pangilinan or the so-called “KakamPINKs” are convinced that Robredo is the right person to lead the country in the next six years.

“Ang mahusay na lider, may track record ng accomplishments. Kahit di pa siya opisyal ng gobyerno, marami na siyang natulungan bilang abogado. ‘Yung Naga City, example ng kung ano ang pwedeng magawa with good governance,” he said.

Bernabe also lamented the “poor decision making” and “mishandling” of government resources during the pandemic.

“Nakikita rin natin ang forces ng historical distortion na gumagawa ng paraan para makabalik sa kapangyarihan,” he said.

(We are also seeing that forces of historical distortion are making a way to return to power.)

“Ang resulta nito ay gutom, kamatayan, sakit, kahirapan, at kawalan ng trabaho. Para hindi magpatuloy ang mga problemang ito, kailangan natin ng presidenteng panig sa katotohanan at kapakanan ng bayan,” he added.

(The result is hunger, death, sickness, poverty, and lack of jobs. For these problems to stop, we need a president who sides with the truth and the welfare of the public.)
