Urban poor woes depicted in Lenten-themed protest

MANILA – Progressive groups led by Kalipunan ng Damayang Mahihirap (Kadamay) held a Lenten-themed protest Friday, March 23, the depicting the different struggles of Filipino people under President Duterte’s administration. Kadamay chairperson Gloria Arellano likened Duterte to Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor of Judea known for his involvement in punishing Jesus. “Like a modern day…

Duterte’s ‘order of battle,’ a portent of an imminent dictatorship?

“This poison list disguising as petition filed by the DOJ is actually a kill list and an arrest list. Anyone can be a target of extrajudicial killing or illegal arrest using this DOJ petition as a pretext. An alias in the list can be alleged to anyone and that is what makes the petition and list even more precarious.”

“By implication, they are all being branded as ‘terrorists’ and to add my name and those of the NDFP peace negotiation panel and consultants, eight deceased individuals and at least 185 easily replaceable aliases exposes even more the list’s absurdity.” – Elisa Tita Lubi
