Duterte fumes at Kadamay: Pareho lang kayo ng mga kriminal!
President Rodrigo Duterte has lashed out at the urban poor group Kalipunan ng Damayang Mahihirap (Kadamay) amid reports they are planning to occupy another housing project again.
Speaking before Filipino Chinese businessmen and families of fallen soldiers in Malacañang Tuesday (July 25), Duterte warned Kadamay against staging a repeat of their so-called “Occupy Bulacan” movement.
“Hindi ko naman mananakaw ‘yung mga semento sa mga tindahan ng mga negosyante. Tapos gusto niyo pabahay, ‘pag may nakikita kayo diyang may bakante — p*****,” he said.
In March, members of Kadamay occupied empty units in government housing projects in Bulacan, which were meant for soldiers and cops.
Duterte eventually allowed them to have the houses they occupied, saying they will just build new ones for soldiers.
Should Kadamay resort to occupying empty housing units again, Duterte said he will order their arrest.
“Pag lumaban kayo, may itak ‘yung mga ganun. At tsaka ‘yung mga guerilla, ‘yung may dala-dalang granada, sabihin ko talaga: ‘Shoot them dead.’ Pareho lang kayo ng mga kriminal,” he said.
“Hindi pwede itong administrasyon ko ganunin ninyo. Binababoy ninyo ako eh,” Duterte added.
