IN PHOTOS: Filipinos urged to resist dictatorship, tyranny on Human Rights Day
MANILA, Philippines – To mark the International Human Rights Day, various groups on Monday, December 10, joined protests to condemn the creeping tyranny under President Rodrigo Duterte.
Human rights groups call for accountability and justice for the thousands of victims of violations – particularly related to Duterte's bloody anti-illegal drugs campaign.
In a statement, Karapatan secretary general Tinay Palabay said that it is high time for people to realize that the current administration is “not a government for the people” as it “wilfully violates people’s rights.”
Here are some photos from the protests conducted:
