This action, complete with street theatre, will protest the anti-people and pro-imperialist Charter Change by the government of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.
It is held on the occasion of the 9th, and what should be the last, State of the Nation Address (SONA) by President Arroyo to be held in the Philippines, Monday, July 27, 2009.
Her address comes amidst renewed efforts to change the Constitution and the form of Government of the Philippines to permit Arroyo to stay in power, and in the midst of a serious world economic crisis.
