JV asks politikos to listen public grievances: Drug war must focus on shipments from China

Sep 22, 2017 @ 14:28

“Leaders should always be good listeners to effectively govern the country.”

Sen. JV Ejercito made the remark a day after the holding of the National Day of Protest which also coincided with the 45th commemoration of martial law declaration.

President Rodrigo Duterte declared Sept. 21 this year as the National Day of Protest to allow groups opposed to his policies including his “bloody” war on drugs.

“It would be a good time to re-evaluate strategy on war against drugs more than a year after its implementation,” Ejercito said on Friday.

“I still maintain my position that to effectively stop drugs, we must stop where it is sourced – China!” he added.

Senators Frank Drilon, Kiko Pangilinan, and Bam Aquino—all members of the Senate minority bloc and the Liberal Party—attended a Mass at a UP chapel to pay tribute to the victims of martial law during the Marcos regime and the unabated extrajudicial killings (EJKs) of suspected drug personalities under the Duterte administration.
