BACOLOD CITY – Clad in red, supporters of presidential aspirant Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. joined a “unity caravan” in this city on Sunday morning, November 21.

The police did not give any estimate as to the number of vehicles that participated.

FEATURED STORIES

The caravan was staged to express support to Marcos, and his running mate Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte as shown in their red and green ribbons.

Aurora Blanca, Silent Majority BBM 2022 chairman, said they believed in the advocacy of Marcos and will not be distracted or swayed in their belief that he is the right president for the country despite negative statements being hurled against him.

“We see the positive side of Marcos and believe he can bring change and improve the economy,” she said.

The “unity caravan” was composed of different groups supporting Marcos in Negros, many of whom got to know each other through social media.

Blanca said they drew participants to join the caravan through social media because they wanted to show the rest of the country that Marcos has supporters in Negros.

She said her group is called Silent Majority BBM 2022 because many of the participants work in government and cannot publicly come out.
