FALSE: Photo of a Hugpong ng Pagbabago rally drawing a massive crowd
The Facebook page No to Dilawan Movement posted a photo on March 12 of a supposed Hugpong ng Pagbabago rally gathering a massive crowd.
The photo's caption reads: "Grabeh! Ganito karaming tao ang pumunta sa Hukbong [Hugpong] ng Pagbabago rally." (Incredible! This is how many people went to the Hukbong [Hugpong] ng Pagbabago rally.)
This is false. A reverse image search reveals that the photo is that of devotees of the Black Nazarene in a procession held in Manila on January 9, 2013.
CBCP News, the church's group news organization run by Catholic journalists, originally published the aerial shot showing hundreds of thousands of pilgrims and devotees.
