Groups meet Duterte’s fifth year with protest


More than a thousand individuals marched to the Mendiola Bridge in Manila to mark Rodrigo Duterte’s fifth year in power last June 30 and hold him accountable for his regime of corruption, treachery, killings, and oppression.

Led by Bagong Alyansang Makabayan, various organizations demanded an end to the killings and for the Duterte regime to be prosecuted for all its crimes against the people. A similar protest was mounted in San Pedro City, Laguna.

On the same day, health workers protested in front of the Department of Health office in Manila City to demand their unpaid benefits and Sec. Francisco Duque III’s resignation.
