Since Rodrigo Duterte became president, almost 8,000 drug suspects have been killed during police operations according to Human Rights Watch. On the other hand, domestic human rights groups and the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) believe the actual tally is triple that figure.
The terrors of the drug war continues even in the time of pandemic as suspected drug victims and activists alike are killed by state forces, emboldened by the President's own words. According to another Human Rights Watch report, the extrajudicial killings (EJKs) increased by more than 50% in the early months of the pandemic.
These continued acts of violence demand for our stronger support to the efforts of human rights groups and advocates, UN, and ICC to probe these human rights injustices. We the sovereign youth can do something about it. Let's amplify the calls for justice and accountability!
