Known for orderliness, Iglesia ni Cristo members leave mess
The Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) is known for their orderliness in church services, activities and decorum.
But it seemed like they made an exemption during their rally against the alleged meddling of Justice Sec. Leila de Lima in the affairs of the church early Saturday morning.
Mess from the distributed food packs from a known fast-food chain scattered everywhere on Edsa-Shaw Boulevard intersection.
INC members took control of the busy intersection Friday evening, causing heavy traffic on Edsa.
The night was young and an instant party was ongoing as of 2 am.
Singers rock the stage set up earlier as protesters went wild with dancing.
The scenes captured by cameras were projected on LED screens.
Leave or stay?
As early as 12 midnight, sleepy protesters started sleeping on the floors lined with cardboards and plastic being sold.
Children, mothers and fathers took advantage shades at a mall or the MRT station nearby, avoiding the drizzle.
Some members started dispersing as early as 12 midnight. Others chose to stay and wait for things to unfold.
They said the camp out will last until Monday. As of 2:16 am, portalets (portable toilets) were being set up in the vicinity. Anthony Q. Esguerra/TVJ
