Philippines: Duterte's Bloody War on His Own People
March 21, 2018
Increasingly authoritarian President Rodrigo Duterte is planning to classify hundreds of leftists as terrorists as he cracks down on the country's powerful communist movement.
We speak to Cristina Palabay, the secretary general of KARAPATAN, and Teddy Casino, a former congressman and representative of the Bayan Muna party.
Teddy Casino is a former Congressman and representative of the Bayan Muna Partylist, columnist for The Inquirer newspaper in the Philippines, and a speaker who will be traveling to the U.S. to participate in ICHRP US's Stop the Killings speaking tour which will take place from late April to mid May across the United States.
Cristina 'Tinay' Palabay is the Secretary General of the Karapatan Alliance for the Advancement of People's Rights, who herself has been threatened for her human rights work.
