This morning, ten Cabinet members and other officials resigned and called on Mrs. Arroyo to step down. The chorus grew louder in the afternoon with similar statements from former President Aquino, the Liberal Party, and the Makati Business Club.
While her allies in Malacañang, Congress and local government units desperately defend the beleaguered president, followers of Fernando Poe Jr. and members of the militants groups gather at Ayala Avenue to continue calling for Arroyo’s resignation.
Meanwhile, Filipino netizens join the resign call through GMAResignNow.com, an online petition initiated by Enteng Romano of eLagda. Romano led eLagda’s Erap Resign Internet campaign in 2001.
