After tearing a huge placard that said “P1,000″ into two, members of the BBB held up signs that read “stop the EJKs [extra judicial killings], uphold human rights” during their performance.

The House of Representatives on Tuesday voted 119-32 to approve the P1,000 budget.

This was not the first time that the Blue Babble Battalion used the halftime show to get their message across. Last year, members of the team wore shirts that spelled “NOT A HERO.”
