Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman on Tuesday urged the Duterte administration to “stop crucifying the good Samaritans.”

“The government must not conceal its shame for failing the disadvantaged and marginalized sectors by enforcing repressive measures against those who are voluntarily helping neglected Filipinos,” Lagman said in a statement.

Lagman said the harassments by State agents against the organizer of the first community pantry in Maginhawa st., Quezon City was replicated against other sponsors of community pantries.

“The Duterte administration must not compound its culpable inadequacy of rescuing the poor from the abyss of the pandemic by red-tagging and profiling the good Samaritans who have put up community pantries to help the poorest of the poor,” Lagman added.

Lagman also urged citizens to organize and support free food-for-the-poor outlets.

Meanwhile, Muntinlupa Rep. Ruffy Biazon asked if the Muntinlupa City Fire Department will also be red-tagged for setting up its own community pantry.

“Community pantries being red-tagged? How about the Muntinlupa City Fire Department which has its own community pantry?” asked Biazon in his Twitter post.
