Hundreds of Reproductive Health advocates and legislators marched to the South Wing of Congress this afternoon to mark the first day of the Occupy for RH movement.

Carrying purple placards and chanting, “RH Delay, 11 deaths every day” and “RH Bill, sampung taon na, sobra na, tama na. (RH Bill: 10 years of waiting, enough is enough.”), protestors led by legislators Kaka Bag-ao, Walden Bello and Antonio Tinio tied purple ribbons on the gate of Congress and hoisted purple banners.
