MANILA, Philippines – It was surprising that the big TV networks did not air LIVE updates of the ongoing rally last February 22, 2015. It was only in the evening that the news was aired. Hundreds of cops and uniformed personnel were there to “guard” the PEACEFUL people who were rallying.
Did those in charge send them on guard early on because of the fear that the crowd would swell to uncontrollable proportions? Where was this swift and prompt response during the Mamasapano massacre when the 44 Special Armed Forces were waiting for reinforcement?
The relatives of President Noynoy Aquino, Peping and Tingting Cojuangco were there to express their desire that their nephew PNoy should step down.
On to another topic, it seems government hospitals are now being privatized one by one, without the nation knowing about this. Kawawa naman ang mga walang pera. Saan na sila pupunta? (Those without money would have nowhere to go.) Why aren’t those in charge of the health sector saying anything?
Will we wait until everything is taken away from us? A week or a month more and we don’t know what else would be given away, without us knowing.
When will we ever learn?
