Filipino community groups staged protest rallies to call for VP Robredo’s impeachment
Various Filipino community groups staged protest rallies this weekend in Toronto, Canada to call for the impeachment of Vice President Leni Robredo.
Carrying their placards with the statement “Stop shaming the Philippines and impeach VP Leni Robredo”, the group gathered in Bathurst and Wilson Community Garden and Earl Bales Park.
This call was prompted by the video message of the Vice President presented to the United Nations criticizing the anti-drug campaign of the Duterte administration.
The groups said they are willing to defend and protect the President to carry on with the positive changes in the country.
“Let it be known out there, that we stand in one with all Filipinos all over the world that we need a vice president who will cooperate with the president,” said Filipino Achievers Canada Secretary Kate Telan.
Other Canadians participated in the rally.
”Let the President do his job and what would be good to the people because your people have been suffering for a long time,” John Morey, a Canadian supporter of President Duterte said.
They even claim that they are ready to support the projects initiated by President Duterte for the betterment of the Filipino citizens.
“We would want to see our kababayans or our relatives and the Filipino people enjoy a better life, a safe life, a drug-free life and no corrupt practices in government,” said Filipino Achievers Canada chairman, Mann Nacario.
Aside from Canada, Filipinos in New York also show their earnest support.
According to the group, they voluntarily made their move despite the President’s call to stop the campaign against Vice President Leni Robredo, because they believe that it is the future of the country that they are fighting for. – Noel Poliarco | UNTV News & Rescue
