From Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque

We deplore the effort of militant groups to deliberately cause harm to innocent people in their attempt to disrupt a private reception we were tendering for representatives of several foreign missions in New York.

The militant groups were not content to peacefully rally outside the restaurant, they charged upstairs, in the process injuring two elderly waiters, and causing damage to property.

The restaurant also informed us that the rallyists ordered food and beverage but did not pay for them.

Sec. Harry Roque
