KARATULA, a national organization of young artists held mud protests in Marinduque, Manila, Iloilo, among others as part of the contribution of artist groups’ solidarity with Yolanda victims.
Recently the government had released a statement assuring the public of their continued efforts to address the immediate needs of Yolanda survivors.
Jay Del Rosario, KARATULA spokesperson said regarding the mud protest that “this signifies something that we all believe to be true, that Yolanda survivors remain in great suffering and that a year of negligence is beyond criminal. A year of negligence is sadistic. This mud protest shows that we can rise from the sadistic hardships brought upon by a lack of concrete plan and a mockery of rehabilitation.”
Plagued by faulty rehabilitation, corruption over rebuilding projects and state violence, the people of Eastern Visayas have repeatedly asserted their rights for adequate relief and rehabilitation.
“It is clear that we are witnessing are not the after effects of a disaster but the added effects of a disaster piled on the people by the Aquino government” added Del Rosario.


He cited the no-build zones, massive corruption laden projects (including those in the DAP), massive militarization and of course the stark lack of food and shelter as major indicators of persistent problems. Recently there had also been news about a road widening project set to displace 7,000 people.
“This government is a disaster. We are rising from the ground to take charge of ending this disaster” ended Del Rosario. - Michael Beltran
Meanwhile, in Tacloban (Leyte) with photos courtesy of Renato Reyes, Jr...
More than 10,000 march in Tacloban for today's big protest. March commenced from Tacloban City Astrodome then marchers trooped to DSWD and the provincial capitol shouting "Noynoy Aquino, waray pulos! Patalsikon!"



Day of Action for Justice: Yolanda survivors hold Fluvial Parade for Justice, Accountability and Change. Hundreds arrive in boats from Basey.

The term “People Surge” or “Duluk han Katawhan” means an empowered people indicting the Noynoy Aquino government for its gross negligence that resulted in the massive loss of lives and properties. A metaphor to the storm surge that drowned people and communities during Yolanda’s wrath, the term illustrates a swelling of the people constituting the typhoon victims and their supporters who will gather their strength, rise up and flood the streets to exact justice from the inept government. People Surge also signifies Filipinos united to fight for their right to life and humane existence. - People Surge
