Philippines: Street protesters are not militants

Mongster's nest does not like the media using the broad term “militant” to identify street protesters. He asks the media to “name groups for what they seek to represent”. The blogger talks about the wrong impression that such reporting might give to a foreigner “Imagine a foreigner reading a news article on about militant groups staging a rally near Mendiola. He/she may deduce how chaotic the situation in our country given the fact that ‘militant’ (terrorist) groups are able to assemble near the seat of power.”
