'Rigged' midterm elections spark massive walk out of University of the Philippines students

A massive student walkout was staged on May 14 in protest of alleged 'rigged' midterm government elections.

Students from the University of Philippines, moderates and non-affiliated students gathered en-masse and were led by national democratic organisations in the protest.

Rep. Arlene Brosas said many Filipinos are calling for accountability on the alleged abnormal midterm election results.

Progressive groups including student protesters and representatives Kabataan, Anakbayan and Gabriela, among others, demand poll transparency.

Footage shows a hoard of students roaring out a chant as they leave a building. Many hold signs and wave flags.
