Proposed article name move[edit]

Million People March only refers to the protests in Luneta park and does not include similar protests in other Philippine and overseas locations. I propose to move this page to Philippine protests against misuse of public funds, although the proposed article name is longer than the current one it reflects the more widespread protests against the misuse of the PDAF better.--Hariboneagle927 (talk) 05:49, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

  • Sir, while your reasoning is sensible, I am not sure if it will actually work. After all, some media outlets have called it the "Pork barrel protests". Maybe you can call it the "Philippine anti-corruption protests" or "2013 protests in the Philippines. Image2012 (talk) 06:42, 26 August 2013 (UTC)
    • I disagree. Remember that the protests were initially called the Million People March, and when word spread around that people intended to protest against it in other places, they took their cue from this. The name "Million People March" is in fact the most common name for these protests based on my encounters with media's coverage of the event, whether that be here in Manila or elsewhere. --Sky Harbor (talk) 14:08, 26 August 2013 (UTC)
      • Okay, since we're the only ones here, and I have the right to move a page (though I never noticed), can someone help me put it to a vote? I don't know how. --Image2012 (talk) 08:43, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
        • Okay, I completely forgot that you can't put anything here to a vote unless it is for the Wikimedia Foundation! Sorry, everyone.--Image2012 (talk) 07:43, 28 August 2013 (UTC)
          • Okay, maybe you're right. There have been other protests lately: on September 11, 13, 21, and October 4, with the October protest being a protest dubbed the "Million People March". There should also be a significant overhaul. Image2012 (talk) 11:34, 6 October 2013 (UTC)
