No threat to 9-11 rally vs pork barrel
MANILA -- The Department of National Defense has not monitored any threats to the second rally against pork barrel on September 11 at the EDSA Shrine.
The protest, dubbed as "EDSA Tayo," is a follow-up to the "Million People March" at the Luneta Park last August 26.
Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin also dismissed speculations that demonstrations against the pork barrel would lead to the destabilization of the Aquino administration.
Gazmin said anti-government groups could just be riding on the issue of the pork barrel scam.
Meanwhile, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) said it will be supporting the Philippine National Police (PNP) in ensuring peace and order during the activity.
The AFP reiterated that soldiers in active service are not allowed to join the demonstration. -- ANC
