protest vs. City


The United Negros Drivers and Operators Center will stage a protest on September 30 against the alleged failure of the city government and the Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod to act on their complaints against the operation of the Bacolod Traffic Authority Office.

outside of Mt Talinis: exec
