Perhaps everyone has already heard of “Duterte’s Kitchen”, a small eatery in Cubao named after President Rodrigo Duterte which was opened early in December last year to serve free food to street children. Looks like it has extended its kitchen to reach PLaza Miranda.
Indeed, four mini-trucks of “Duterte’s Kitchen” were sighted serving lugaw [porridge] to supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte who joined a rally at the Plaza Miranda in Manila for the Sept. 21 “National Day of Protest.”
One of the organizers, Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) board member Benny Antiporda, said they expected around 50,000 Duterte supporters to attend the pro-administration rally.
Duterte declared September 21, 2017 as a “National Day of Protest,” as he acknowledged people’s fear of Martial Law.
The president said he is “in solidarity with the people’s call against all excesses and shortcomings of the government, and with the people’s desire to uphold the highest standards of integrity, efficiency and accountability in government.”
Netizens shared what they witnessed on social media:
