The Priority Development Assistance Fund is a discretionary fund provided to members of the Philippine Congress to fund local projects that fall outside of national-level development programmes. The “pork barrel” came under heavy public criticism and government investigation in 2013 when it was discovered that multiple lawmakers had misappropriated funds allocated to them in an elaborate scam centred on businesswoman Janet Lim-Napoles.
Students from Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU), University of the Philippines and Miriam College organized a rally along Katipunan Road on September 11, 2013 to protest against the scandal. Terzeus Dominguez, an ADMU student was present during the rally and shared with Subjectivities photos from the event.
