Armies now deployed at EDSA Shrine, People Power Monument

Members of the Philippine Army are now stationed at the EDSA Shrine and People Power Monument along EDSA in Quezon City, deployed on May 12, 2022, in anticipation of any mass action being hatched by groups supportive of losing presidential candidate Leni Robredo.

The Armed Forces of the Philippines said their presence is part of the contingency plan for possible protest action by supporters of Robredo in connection with the result of the last election where the outgoing vice president is trailing by at least 16 million votes from president-in-waiting Bongbong Marcos.
