#ThewRap: Videos to watch this week, March 26 - April 1, 2018
From rolling away "stones of sin" to threats against media to an exclusive video on violent rituals in the police academy
Dear Rappler readers,
Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle urges Catholics to roll away "stones" of sin to uncover love this Easter. The homily caps this week's commemoration of Holy Week, and last Friday's gripping message. He asked the faithful on the day of Christ's crucifixion, "Do we allow Jesus to be crucified? Or maybe we are protecting another king?"
In a provocative video, journalists Ezra Acayan, Ed Lingao, JC Gotinga, Pia Ranada, Jason Gutierrez and Inday Espina-Varona speak of the attack against the free press.
Dinagat Representative Kaka Bag-ao says being part of the majority bloc should not mean saying yes – without reservations – to the decisions and whims of the House leadership.
Contrary to officials' position that beatings of upperclassmen in the police academy is an "isolated case", a video obtained by Rappler shows that is not true.
