Philippines president: ‘Vaccinate or I will have you jailed’.
I gotta give credit for honest coercion.
Here we have to play, “Dude, no one is forcing you to anything. You only gotta get it if you want to travel, or work or go to school or leave the house. Its totally up to you, why do you have to make these wild claims about things turning into a dictatorship?”
If I remember correctly they were threatening to shoot people who broke curfew over there last year. Sounds like a hell-hole.
A hell-hole for sure!
Estimated death toll of Duterte’s drug war, upwards of 12,000.
Another link to the covid vaccination ‘choice’.
I visited the Phillipines in 2018 and most of the people there were very supportive of Duterte. It was actually a very nice place, however you did need to be mindful of where you went on your own. A lot of armed security around the shopping malls, airports, etc.
I wouldn’t agree with the hell-hole comments. You can find plenty of other areas in other countries where there are a few problems too!
Duterte is a total nutjob, but guess who is there encouraging the worst in him… CNN Philippines!!!
