Militant groups such as Sanlakas, Save Environment and Life (SEAL) Alliance, Pusyon Kinaiyahan, Sanlakas, and Oriang women’s group, however, joined the Mass, and brought their streamers and a casket with the words ‘justice for the 77 deaths’.

“Dili na lang gyod unta sagulan ba kay magubot naman gud hinuon. Ang among kay magmisa ra mi para sa among mga kaliwat. Wala na sa among plano ang magrally,” said Mary Grace Capoy, who lost three siblings in the lanslide.

For his part, Bro. Peter Simon Jardinico of Pusyon Kinaiyahan explained that defending the environment should be a unified cause and should not only be on the affected residents.
