Tolentino also appealed to the organizers of “EDSA Tayo” to strictly observe order and discipline in the event that their planned prayer rally pushes through at the EDSA Shrine.

“We recognize their rights to express fully their sentiments.  But I am appealing to their social and civic responsibility in maintaining order and discipline among their ranks, considering it is a working day, and most of the schools nearby will have their exams,” Tolentino said.
