    It was already chaos last monday. I couldnt even make it to my sampaloc clinic. No offense to the black nazarene, i have utmost respect for the dude. But some of the devotees are hinging on borderline fanaticism! Hehe. We got 3 units deployed there for the chaos that will ensue on Wednesday.

    Paramihan sa epal ng mga politikos for sure...



    http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/336937/...-quiapo-fiesta

    ‘Epal’ politicians told: Keep off Quiapo fiestaPlease don’t give in to “tarpaulitics” temptation.

    An environmental watchdog yesterday urged politicians not to put up their “Happy Fiesta” tarpaulins along the processional route of the image of the Black Nazarene as they defile the solemnity of the occasion.

    “Tarpaulitics,” or what is popularly called “epal,” refers to the shameless use of tarpaulins to advertise the names and faces of politicians and election candidates.

    “Tarpaulins do not lead to a happy fiesta. In fact, tarpaulins are a nuisance that can confuse the spiritual message of unity,” Edwin Alejo, EcoWaste Coalition coordinator, said in a statement.

    Propaganda tarpaulins also add to the enormous fiesta clutter and trash that will have to be disposed of later, the group said.

    “[They] block the public view of the procession, harm the trees and mess up the bridges, electric cables, lampposts and structures where the tarps are usually fastened or hung,” Alejo said.

    The feast commemorates the first procession to transfer the Black Nazarene from a church in Intramuros to the minor basilica in Quiapo held on Jan. 9, 1767.

    Many take part in the annual feast to implore God for help in solving money, family or business problems. Some come to ask to be healed of maladies.

    Alejo said it was very tempting for politicians eyeing the 2013 elections to use the occasion to sell themselves through “happy fiesta” tarpaulin banners.
    “We appeal to their sense of propriety and defy such a temptation,” Alejo added. “Tarpaulitics has no place in an event whose only focus, should and must be, the Black Nazarene.”

    Will the procession on Monday also affect traffic in other parts of Metro Manila?

    I need to be in Chino Roces in Makati at 11:00am. Will I be affected by the traffic if I'm coming from NLEX?

    Walang pasok sa City of Manila sa Monday. Saturday Jan 7, expect heavy traffic because quiapo will be closed to traffic for the parade of Nazarene replicas...
