Philippine cardinal leads huge protest against corruption

August 29, 2013

An estimated 100,000 Filipinos, led by Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle of Manila, took part in an August 26 protest against government corruption, according to the Philippine bishops’ news agency.

“I encourage everyone to see, heed the call, and love those who are poor and exploited like our own brothers and sisters,” he said. “Let us prove that the Filipino is a dignified and noble race. Dignified because we fear the Lord, respect human life, give importance to our neighbors, love our country, and care for our environment.”
