Erin Tañada to Duterte: Give equal respect to Filipinos, Chinese
Senatorial candidate Erin Tañada urged President Rodrigo Duterte to give equal respect to Filipinos and the Chinese.
The Quezon politiko made the remark after Duterte announced that Duterte Death Squads (DDS) will be deployed to kill potential communist rebels.
“Bakit pinapapatay ang Pilipino pero inaalagaan ang mga Tsinong kumukuha ng trabaho ng Pinoy?” Tañada asked.
“We can already see the poor communities being the targets of these squads,” he added.
Tañada also cited the reported increase in illegal Chinese workers in the country.
“All we ask is that President Duterte give his fellow Filipinos the same degree of respect and compassion that he gives to Chinese nationals. Bakit gusto niyang ipapatay ang mga kapwa Pilipino natin na istambay pero gusto niyang alagaan natin ang mga Tsinong kumukuha ng mga trabahong dapat mabigay sa Pilipino?” he said.
