FOR BLOCKING HIGHWAY DURING MASS PROTEST RALLY
STATEMENT BY MAYOR SARA DUTERTE ON THE KMU ROADBLOCK IN BARANGAY LASANG
The roadblock led by Kilusang Mayo Uno (KMU) in Barangay Lasang in Davao City yesterday was an example of how these groups intend to govern should they be given the power to lead our government and the country.
They terrorize, engender lawlessness, create confusion, disrespect fellow human beings, put lives in danger, and disregard any authority altogether.
The extreme inconvenience they created to the transport of goods and people yesterday was the reason why they get no support from the Dabawenyos.
We all know now that these militant groups, who masquerade themselves as pro-people, only want to sow hostility and chaos, especially to those who reject them and the terrorist groups they support — the New People’s Army (NPA), the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP), and the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP).
Davao City and the Dabawenyos were once again the target of these groups yesterday. But the Dabawenyos stood tall.
We are grateful to the Commanders and the men and women of the Davao City Police Office and Task Force Davao, and to the Brgy. Captain and residents of Brgy. Lasang for showing these groups the lunacy of their act.
We are all victims of these terrorist-loving militant organizations who do not seem to know what they really want from society.
In the 2019 elections, please be reminded of what happened yesterday and the previous incidents involving these militant groups. Do not support the partylist groups under the Makabayan bloc — these are Bayan Muna, Alliance of Concerned Teachers or ACT Teachers, Anakpawis, Gabriela, Kabataan, and Migrante.
Daghang salamat sa inyong pagpasensya.
