MANILA, Philippines - In 2010, Representative Teodoro Casiño served as campaign manager for the senatorial campaigns of Bayan Muna representatives Liza Maza and Satur Ocampo.
Today, he calls his campaign for senator a challenge, an act of history. "It is the first time a progressive candidate, let's say from the left, is running for the Senate with a chance to win."
In this profile video by Rappler reporter Patricia Evangelista, Casiño, who calls himself the voice of the ordinary man, talks about elitists, elections, the armed revolution and the standards for justice when it comes to killing ordinary men. - Rappler.com
