PEOPLE’S SONA. Concerned members of the civil society, human rights groups, church groups and farmer-leaders held a rally in conjunction with the third State of the Nation Address of President Rodrigo Duterte near the Ilocos Sur Provincial Capitol last July 23, 2018. Among the issues raised by the protesters were the use of the Tobacco Excise Tax (RA 7171) for the benefit of tobacco farmers, opposition to the planned construction of a dam in Del Pilar, among others.
