Where the masses gather

Liwasang Bonifacio and Manila City Hall in Black & WhiteThis site is where usually the masses would gather to voice out their opinion or anger against the government and its policies or lack thereof. Some would argue that this place is just being used by propagandist to air out their platforms and agendas using the poor folks in the process. In any case at least there is a venue for organize and peaceful movement.

It is great to live in a country where freedom of expression is allowed but at times that freedom is being abused and most of the time people tend to forget that it is not absolute. I also can’t help but think of all those places where news and information are being controlled by their government and its citizens have no right to express their opinions, I can’t help but feel sorry for them and also think of how lucky that I am not living in one of those countries.
