MMDA warns motorists of traffic congestion during ‘solidarity walk’ in Quezon City on Sunday
THE Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) on Wednesday warned motorists of traffic congestion along the Elliptical Road in Quezon City on Sunday when a “solidarity walk” to condemn violence in Mindanao would be held.
EDSA traffic management chief Edison “Bong” Nebrija said about 4,000 people composed of Muslims, Catholics and Christians would join the activity that would start along Commonwealth Avenue at 5 a.m.
Muslim participants will be gathering at Commonwealth Avenue and the Christians on East Avenue. The walk to the Quezon Memorial Circle will start at 7 a.m. A solidarity program will be held until 10 a.m.
“There would be [an] exchange of bibles and [Qur’an]… and participants would embrace upon the convergence. This was also done during the bombings in Zamboanga,” Nebrija told reporters.
The government will also send delegates from the Philippine National Police (PNP), Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the MMDA to ensure safety and manage traffic.
Bomb explosions hit Jolo, Sulu; North Cotabato and Zamboanga City all in a week, resulting in the deaths of 24 people and injuring about 100 others. Authorities have not officially identified the perpetrators in these attacks. NEIL JAYSON N. SERVALLOS
