Crisis in the Philippines: resources for action

Materials to help you campaign effectively in your community about the unfolding human rights crisis in the Philippines.

Since coming into power on 30 June 2016, President Rodrigo Duterte has overseen the unlawful killing of more than 30 people every single day.

President Duterte gave police ‘shoot to kill’ orders along with complete immunity to hunt down any drug suspects. Even vigilante groups and ordinary citizens are taking this as a green light to commit murder. On 7 August 2016 the president released a ‘kill list’ of 150 people allegedly associated with drugs. This resulted in terrible violence, bodies on the streets and even deaths in custody.

This anarchy will continue to rise unless we demand that the president immediately stops sanctioning murder.
