A photo is making its rounds on the internet after protesters were allegedly paid after joining the Anti-Marcos demonstration last Wednesday, November 30, 2016.
In the photo, 4 people were seen-- two of them holding a 500 peso bill and a starbucks cup and the other was holding a Mar Roxas fan.
However, this photo is not proven to be legitimate or even from the same month as the demonstration. Some commenters claimed that the photo was taken during the election and not after the rally.
The first thing that you'll notice is that all of the protesters during the November 30 rally were wearing black shirts while the viral photo shows "protesters" wearing yellow. Did they change their clothes before taking the photo? Or could it possibly be another case of taking something out of the original context to "prove a point"?
In a political climate that is prone to misinformation and meme sharing, one should be critical of what they see and share on social media.
