Sharp objections

barbed wire barricades Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process,
gradually changing opinions,
slowly eroding old barriers,
quietly building new structures.
~ John F. Kennedy

Despite the presence of the Mendiola Peace Arch (see yesterday's post), barbed wire barricades are still clustered around the gate leading to the district around Malacañang Palace, the official residence of the President of the Philippines, ready to be deployed at any time.

Mendiola evokes so many memories for me having spent my college years in one of those 4 universities there.

This looks menacing, which I guess is the idea.
