hello - this is a carrd made to educate you on the situation in the philippines, along with how you can help and places you can donate to.
please do not stay silent.
I am not from the Philippines, and am basing this information off of things I've read from today from official sources. Please inform me if I've made an error/phrased something incorrectly in this carrd.
tw for police brutality, violence, shootings, and death
On December 20th, 2020, 46-year-old police officer Jonel Nuezca shot 52-year-old Sonya Gregorio, and her son, Frank Gregorio, multiple times over an argument about an improvised cannon (used to make noise for New Years celebrations).
Neuzca's daughter had shouted, "my father is a policeman," and Sonya had replied, "I don't care." Nuezca then threatened to kill Sonya before fatally shooting both her and her son.
Nuezca shot them with no hesitation, shooting Sonya a second time before running away.
This scene was recorded and uploaded onto the internet.

Why don't Filo people speak about these things themselves?
They can't, not without hiding their own personal information first.
The government does not listen to petitions. Their own president told police officers to shoot first.
Their lives will be in danger if they speak up. They could be red-tagged.
What is red tagging?
Red-tagging is defined by the Philippine jurisprudence as "the act of labelling, branding, naming and accusing individuals and/or organizations of being left-leaning, subversives, communists or terrorists (used as) strategy... by State agents, particularly law enforcement agencies and the military, against those perceived to be 'threats' or 'enemies of the State.'"
This carrd explains it in detail.
Do not put any personal information in your accounts when sharing about these things.
To avoid getting red-tagged, put a 🔶 in your account! This will let other people know you can't put anything personal in your bio (name, age, pronouns etc.) due to the risk of getting red-tagged.
If you get red-tagged, read this thread. It is extremely helpful in case!! Please take note of it.
Please know that we hear you, and that we want to help you. Stay safe!!
PLEASE DO NOT STAY SILENT.
