Various sectors of civil society, women, youth, farmers, migrant workers, professionals, and artists, joined this year’s global women’s rights campaign One Billion Rising (OBR) for Revolution held at the Bonifacio Shrine in Manila on Saturday, February 14. Photo by Conrad Panelo


This year’s theme “Revolution” extended the call against violence and justice, to a need for social change. The program denounced violence, poverty and impunity in the country and demanded “truth and accountability” from the government. Photo by Anjon Galauran

Leading the program is Gabriela Women’s Party, who actively danced with the crowd to tune of the new OBR soundtrack “Bangon sa Rebolusyon.” Photo by Conrad Panelo


Women from various sectors raised their respective issues by dancing with the beat and giving their messages of solidarity during the program. Worker rights advocate Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas called for the increase of the national minimum wage to P16,000. Photo by Conrad Panelo


The urban poor sector denounced the rampant demolition of communities across the Metro. Photo by Anjon Galauran
