Fiesta Pilar

12zambo1Archbishop Romulo dela Cruz leads the celebration of the fiesta mass Sunday afternoon at the Our Lady of the Pillar Shrine in Zamboanga City. Cell sites of all telecommunication companies in the area were shut down  from  to 2 to 7 p.m. upon the request of the city government, citing security reasons.  The move generated criticisms but city information officer Shiela Covarrubias said “it is the city’s obligation to ensure safety of the majority, even if it means doing the extreme.” Photo from the Facebook wall of Mayor Beng Climaco
