[WATCH] 2016: Change is here
[WATCH] 2016: Change is here
From the 2016 Duterte election win, the war on drugs, the weaponization of the internet, Trump’s victory and Manila’s shift from U.S. to China — it was a year that turned traditional politics upside down. Watch Rappler's 2016 yearender

The year 2016 saw traditional power structures around the world turned upside down.

A weaponized internet helps tough-talking, populist leaders gain power.

A mayor flip-flops his way into Malacañang and changes history.

A dictator becomes a hero.

The Vice President is banned from cabinet meetings.

The Philippines pivots from America to China.

And the President’s harshest critic becomes a cautionary tale to those who challenge his power.

All this against a rising body count in a war on drugs.

Change is here.
