Former Chief Justice Renato Corona, who was impeached for unexplained wealth, was one with the people in the Million People March in Luneta.

Welcomed with boos, thumbs down gestures and "epal" chants, Corona raised his fist and sang "Bayan Ko" with the crowd. His wife, Cristina Roco, was teary-eyed while singing.

When prodded why Corona was at the rally, a smile was all the former chief justice could give.

Corona was flanked by his wife and several friends, one of whom said their presence was voluntary and not politically-motivated.

"Here on our own, para makisama sa mga tao, no politics. We're just here para makisama sa sambayanang pilipino," Corona's friend said.

Corona also greeted his supporters in the area.
On May 29, 2012, the Senate, sitting as an impeachment court, removed Corona from power.
