The Metro Manila Development Authority and the Quezon City government will impose today (Feb. 3) a traffic rerouting and a “stop and go” scheme in connection with the Moslem and Christian groups peace rally at the Quezon City Memorial Circle in light with the recent bomb attacks in Mindanao.
In its advisory, the MMDA Public Information Office stated that “traffic rerouting and stop and go scheme will be implemented in parts of Quezon City as Muslim and Christian groups conduct a solidarity walk/salubungan inside QCMC.”
Dubbed as “Lakad para sa Kapayapaan Laban sa Karahasan,” the solidarity walk aimed to show that Muslims and Christians are “allies promoting peace and not war.”
