Students at anti-Marcos rally: We're part of the fight

Students from UP in Diliman and Manila, the University of Santo Tomas, De La Salle University, and St Scholastica's College participated in the rally organized by the Campaign Against the Return of the Marcoses in Malacañang or Carmma. 

Non-organized students – from schools such as Manila Science High School, Adamson University, and Lyceum University of the Philippines – also joined the rally.

Anywhere from 5,000 to 8,000 protesters from different sectors – women, farmers, laborers, professionals, and students – participated in the Luneta rally, which was held simultaneously with smaller protest activities in key cities across the country.

The Friday rally in Luneta was the first of two major rallies denouncing President Duterte's decision to allow Marcos' burial at the Heroes' Cemetery.

Another rally is set for Wednesday, November 30, at the People Power Monument. It is organized by the Coalition Against Marcos Burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani. (READ: Are you attending the Nov 30 Edsa rally? Here's what to expect
