Pressure groups stage protest rally at Congress in QC

Various women and allied groups led by GABRIELA staged a protest rally at the facade of the House of Representatives today, Friday, September 03, 2021, as they assailed the budget for the Office of the President. The pressure groups attacked “the gross misallocation of funds based on the national budget appropriation in 2022. Even as the country is caught in the middle of an uphill COVID-19 battle, there were drastic cuts in funding for health, services, agriculture, and other major departments while there have been substantial budget increases for the military and pork-barrel funds.
