In the Philippines, protests are growing against President Rodrigo Duterte’s so-called war on drugs, which has killed more than 12,500 people over the last year. There are three separate demonstrations scheduled for today to protest the death of 17-year-old high school student Kian delos Santos, who was one of 80 people killed in drug raids last week alone.
Meanwhile, on Sunday, mourners wore T-shirts reading “Kill drugs, not people” as they carried the coffin of Leover Miranda to a cemetery in Manila. This is his mother, Elvira Miranda.
Elvira Miranda: “My son was screaming 'Mother, mother!' I didn’t hear him. Then I heard gunshot right outside his house, gunshot after gunshot. I said, 'My son, my son!' Didn’t they know that my son had mental health issues?”
