Tondo residents back Bongbong

SEN. Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos Jr. courted voters in the heavily populated Tondo area in Manila, with thousands of residents expressing support for his bid.

Marcos took his “Unity Caravan,” the backbone of his vice-presidential campaign, to every nook, cranny and street of Tondo, as he visited more than 40 barangays of Manila’s First, Second and Third districts.

The Unity Caravan motorcade started in front of the San Roque Chapel on Honorio Lopez Street,  Barangay 129, Zone 11, at around 8 a.m. and finished in Malate past 12 noon.

As he traversed the heart of Manila, people from all walks of life lined up the streets and sidewalks expressing support for Marcos by flashing the peace sign.

Streamers and banners also lined the streets as Marcos made his way through with festive music and much fanfare.

“Like in all the places that I have visited when I started this campaign, I feel I’m very much welcomed here in Manila, especially here in Tondo. I am very thankful to the people of Tondo for allowing me to bring my message of national unity right at their doorsteps,” he said in a statement.

Aside from Tondo, the motorcade passed areas in Divisoria, Blumentritt, Taft Avenue, Santa Cruz and Binondo.

Joining Marcos in the sortie were reelectionist Party-list Rep.  Jonathan de la Cruz of Abakada Teacher and senatorial candidate incumbent Lakas Rep. Martin Romualdez of Leyte.


  1. ang TONDO ang center of ANTI-MARCOS DICTATORSHIP struggle in Metro Manila…

    for the fast 3 decades (80s), almost HALF of the residences in the area ay nai-RELOCATE sa North CALOOCAN, SAPANGPALAY, SAN JOSE del MONTE, DASMARINAS in CAVITE at SAN MATEO areas…..

    Anong DAHILAN kung bakit dadalhin ng mga taga-TONDO ang MARCOS…dahil ba sa KINANG ng PERA, sa mga PAKIMKIM at sa mga PALUWAL na INIHAHATAG ng mga MARCOS OPERATORs sa mga leaders, at sa mga barangays..?

    1. Neil ang dahilan niyan ay ang mga nakalipas na admitration ay walang nagawa at kung ecompara mo sa nagawa ng marcos ay wala sa kaling kingan. Hindi tanga ang mga tao para hindi nila alam ang totoong nagmamalasakit sa bayan. Look at ilocos
