SUPPORTERS OF PRESIDENT JOSEPH ESTRADA ATOP A GIANT PORTRAIT OF HIM IN CALAMBA, PHILIPPINES.
Supporters of Philippine President Joseph Estrada gather atop a giant portrait of the leader in Calamba, south of Manila, during his visit to distribute gifts there on December 28, 2000. Beset by mounting evidence of graft in his impeachment trial, Estrada said on Thursday he was bruised but would emerge victorious, just like the film heroes he used to portray. Estrada is facing an impeachment trial by a senate impeachment tribunal for charges of bribery and corruption.
