Early picket adds to MRT riders’ woes
The woes of commuters taking the Metro Rail Transit got worse early Monday morning, with a picket by militant groups at the MRT-3's station in Quezon City.
Militants showed up at the MRT-3's North Avenue station at about 7 a.m., protesting an alleged plan to use farmers' lands in the MRT-7 expansion project, GMA News' Victoria Tulad tweeted.
A photo tweeted by GMA News' Tulad showed the militants—including a child—holding placards opposing the supposed use of farmers' lands for the expansion.

But another photo by dzBB's Allan Gatus showed the passengers bearing the other daily problems such as long queues.
