It’s a protest driven by anger over the misuse of public funds, but Filipinos have been reminded that the so-called “Million People March” slated at the Luneta Park Monday should be peaceful.

“All are welcome,” guidelines on the rally making rounds online Sunday said even as it added that “this is a peaceful gathering so always be respectful of others.”

“It’s a citizen’s gathering,” Filipina blogger Noemi Lardizabal-Dado said in her post, adding that there is “no central organizer” for the protest.

Plans for the massive rally against corruption have been floated amid a snowballing of sentiments via social networking sites over the so-called pork barrel scam.

The P10-billion scandal accused lawmakers of diverting their Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) to nonexistent nongovernment organizations led by Janet Lim-Napoles. (Source: Yahoo Southeast Asia News)
