In Los Angeles, over 100 people joined the interactive picket –rally that lasted for four hours and a half. GABNet Chapter Coordinator Ivy Quicho was joined by the family of Dr. Enrile in two meetings with Philippine Consul General Mary Jo Aragon early afternoon and late evening.

Rallyist were chanting, “Free, Free, Free The GABNet 3, Stop, Stop, Stop Intimidation!” and “GABNet 3, Set Them Free!”. The Consul General pledged to inquire with her colleagues in the Philippines Department of Foreign Affairs as to the status of the GABNet 3.

Later in the evening, the Consul General returned to inform them that her colleague at the Office of American Affairs said that “they are looking into the matter” and that they are “on top of it” in terms of the GABNet 3 boarding the flight tonight.

Over two dozen of Dr. Enrile’s former university students also joined the vigil. Over 300 protesters across the US carried placards and banners that said “GABNet 3 Off The Philippine Watchlist”, “Solidarity is Not a Crime”, and “Respect Human Rights”.

East Coast Mass Actions

In New York, more than 50 protestors conducted mass action infornt of the New York Consulate. GABRIELA Network San Diego co-coordinator Thea Quiray Tagle, NYNJ member Alex Ruhland and Linda Abad of DAMAYAN/AJLPP met with NY Consul General Cecilia Rebong.

Regardless, the Mirkinsons proceeded to the consulate and demanded an audience with the Consul General. They were able to meet with the Consul General who informed them that he was already aware of the situation and he would contact the office of Philippines Ambassador to the United States Gaa in Washington DC.

Meanwhile, the crowd outside of the consulate continued to grow and the protestors were able to put letters together which said, “FREE THE GABNET 3!” ANSWER Bay Area's Gloria La RIva and AJLPP leader Mario Santos who spoke during the rally.
