The youth volunteers, composed mostly of college students, held an information drive in 81 provinces from May to October. They have gathered 10,000 volunteers to join them in their protests from November 30 (Bonifacio Day) to December 30 (Rizal Day).
“We will need 81 boats to represent 81 provinces. So we will need your help,” said Mariel Ipan, a youth volunteer from Misamis Oriental in a press conference in Quezon City on Tuesday.
“We are asking for transportation. We are calling for the owners of land, water, and air transportation to help us,” said Jervin Bendian of the University of Baguio.
Jasper Niel Cruz of the Philippine Normal University called for the support of food and water manufacturers so that they would have food and drinks for the 30 days of protest.
“Kaming mga kabataan ‘di kaya gastusan yung mga bagay na ito,” he said.
