Joao Rei commented, “These idiotic rallyists are oblivious to the fact that loitering is frowned upon by developed nations (particularly the West and East Asia) due to its negative effects on the economy and mindset of its citizens.”

Kristine Kaye Alili said, “People nowadays. Stop blaming the government, tuition fees were even given for free.”

While Joanne Rosales wrote, “Look how Filipinos blame everything to the government when in fact, everything starts within ourselves. I mean, sometimes when opportunity knocks, we neglect but when we need it, we seek for it.”

The militant groups carried placards demanding a stop to the arrest of tambays, or loiterers, as it is prune to human rights abuses..
