Civil society groups and vendors in Cagayan de Oro City and in Manila on Wednesday staged a rally to show their support for Marawi City residents.

Martial law was declared by President Rodrigo Duterte after the Maute terrorist group led a siege of Marawi City that resulted to several reported killings and burned buildings.

The groups, including Kadamay, Piston, Bayan, Kabataan, and Vendors’ Association gathered at the Cogon market in Cagayan de Oro to light candles and opposed the declaration of martial law in Mindanao.

A similar activity was held in front of the Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene in Quiapo, Manila.

The participants also condemned the terrorist group Maute for killing civilians and burning an Aglipayan school and the Marawi City jail. — BAP, GMA News
