This interesting streamer was sneaked up to the stage during the Feb. 29 interfaith prayer rally in Makati City. It uses a common Filipino joke, “Sana kunin ka na ni Lord” (May God take your life away), as a political statement. This one calls on God to take Justice Secretary Raul Gonzalez, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, presidential spouse Jose Miguel “Mike” Arroyo, former Commission on Elections (Comelec) chairman Benjamin Abalos, Transportation and Communication Secretary Leandro Mendoza, Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) chief of staff Gen. Hermogenes Esperon, Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Gen. Avelino Razon, former Environment Secretary Mike Defensor, and current Environment Secretary Lito Atienza from our midst.
