2016 - Duterte elected as president of The Philippines. Instead of addressing poverty and hunger, the Duterte administration launched “War on Drugs” campaign that killed thousands of poor people. The number of dead bodies continuously rise.
Four Food Not Bombs volunteers are dead and one is incarcerated. He is in the detention cell in Sta. Fe, Bantayan Island, Cebu.
There is no war on drugs. It is actually war on the poor.
This song is a statement of solidarity to all the victims of state-sponsored terrorism that is still happening in The Philippines.
Justice to all the victims of hunger and poverty!

My friend, Food Not Bombs organizer Chris writes, “A kind person called Marco (Cram) who I met on a quiet island called Bantayan in the north of Cebu was arrested in early August for allegedly using and selling the drug. During this arrest, a packet was planted on him and he is innocent of the charge.”
