After his State of the Nation Address (SONA), Monday, July 25, 2016, President Duterte welcomed the pioneers of the rallyists who went to the Batasan Complex to eat snacks with him and to discuss their worries.

One of the gathering pioneers, Bagong Alyansa Makabayan (Bayan) Secretary-General Renato Reyes Jr. communicated his surprise with how they have been dealt with, in the first place, by the policemen, and second, by the President.

Reyes drove the quiet rally which in prior reports, said that they won’t do dissents yet to bolster the plan of the new President and to share theirs.

Reyes shared his experience on his Facebook account saying that as his gathering was pressing up to go, policemen came to them and requested that run with them without knowing where these policemen will take them.

As per Reyes, he and his friends didn’t know why they will be taken until such time, they have discovered that the President is sitting tight for them in the parlor as can be found in the photographs he shared. Reyes said that they had a long meeting with the President in regards to peace and social administrations.

Duterte purportedly permitted the rallyists to come as close as in the Batasan Complex, only a hundred meters from the venue of the SONA which happened surprisingly.
