Napanood ko ang video na to sa Facebook na isang journalist from Reuters, his name is Ezra Acayan. Ang caption pa niya sa video
“When six children lose a mother.
Screaming cries and music from the funeral hearse drown the air as relatives mourn the death of Leah Espiritu, who was killed on June 3 by unknown assailants who fled in a motorbike. Her husband, now left with six children to look after, admits that Leah was a drug runner. A year on, the killings continue and many face a grim and bloody future.
Ang sakit panoorin. Isang taon na, 12000 death in a year. Dami nang naulila.
One of his post last June 20 with these pictures.
Habang binabasa ko ang caption niya parang pinipiga ang puso ko. 😢
“Nine killed in Navotas alone. All in one night.
We used to say Monday nights are most difficult. But a year on and it has never gotten any easier.
Each night someone loses a son, a daughter, a father, or a mother. Each night, someone, somewhere, weeps.
Is it possible to take in so much sorrow?”
9 na buhay ang nawala in one night? 9 na pamilya ang naulila. Hanggang kailan natin kakayanin ang ganitong madugong pagbabago?
Kung 12,000 deaths in a year. Multiply by 6 years, by the end of Duterte’s term we will have 72,000 deaths! Parang Genocide na.
Mabuti na lang may mga journalist na tulad ni Ezra na patuloy naghahatid sa atin ng mga pangyayari. Binibigyan ng kwento ang bawat buhay na nawawala. You can check Ezra Acayan’s Facebook profile for more real news. Not fake, but real.
12000 na ang namatay pero may drugs pa din. Ang iba sa Davao pa nahuhuli. Walang drug lord na nahuhuli. Puro mahihirap ang napapatay.
Kaya pa ba bayan ko? 😢😢😢
