In a statement, Sandugo disputed from the police that the violence started from the ranks of the protesters.

Amirah Lidasan, secretary general of Moro- Christian People's Alliance, said that she was witness to how Senior Supt. Marcelino Pedroso of the Manila Police District (MPD) ordered his men to ram their patrol vehicle against the protesters.

"We were in the front line of the rally.     the protest was about to end when Col. Predoso ordered his men to ram their vehicle against us" Lidasan said

She said that it was the police who attacked the protesters.

"First they rammed the police vehicle against the people. then released tear gas and hit us with truncheons, that's as clear as day" Lidasan added

"We were about to leave when the violence transpired. it was not called for. it's unjustifiable"

Lidasan said police nabbed 29 protesters and brought them to MPD

The Kabataan party-list said among the injured was its Congresswoman, Representative Sarah Elago, Sandugo lead convenor Piya Macliing Malayao, Quenilyn Gromeo of Anakbayan-PUP ,and a 61 years old
Lumad woman

"We express our utmost condemnation of what we can consider as a brutal police attack against the people," Kabataan said

The national minorities, under the banner of Sandugo a newly-established alliance of moro and indigenous people for self-determination, "we rally at the US embassy to underline their plight caused by the US domination in the military, political, and economic affairs of our country", it added

"Scores were reportedly injured as police cars over protesters and fired teargas at them. We are still verifying reports of arrests," Karapatan said in a statement

The protest action of the national minorities called
for the end to US military intervention and plunder in the

"The police should serve and protect the Filipino people's interest, and should not trample on the rights of citizens to freely express their opinions and exercise their right to freedom of assembly over the interest of the US embassy officials who may just be incensed by the calls inscribed by the national minorities on the US embassy seal- because the utter truth of the matter is, they should really get the hell out of our country for all the crimes they perpetrated vs Filipino people" it added

Philippine is a democratic country, we can express our feelings in public in any way we can, just like protesting it in front of US embassy it just sad to say that it ends in horrible ending wherein there must be hurt on the side of a protester and it was intentionally on the side of the police who at the first place must conduct peace and order to the protester..
