So, you want President Gloria out?

President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo is laughing at the puny rally held at the corner of Ayala and Paseo de Roxas in Makati City on June 10, 2009.

Two days before the country's 111th Independence day of the Philippines, around 5,000 people gathered at the corner in the country's richest CBD (Central Business District) to protest moves in Congress to amend the Philippine Constitution that may enable President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo to extend her term or run for a new term as President or Prime Minister.

The legislative measure at the heart of the controversy is House Resolution 1109, which in effect, convenes the House of Representatives (Lower House) and the Senate (Upper House) into a constituent assembly.
