This protest was mounted against home demolitions in the Barangay Sta Clara community in Batangas Province. Monique Wilson, One Billion Rising Global Director and Filipina activist, said “The women from the communities fill my heart so profoundly. They are wondrous and inspiring beyond words, but their stories have also made my heart bleed…state neglect and state violence is one of the biggest injustices”.
