National Day of Youth Resistance | #YouthResist alt-SONA

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Resistance is staging a nationwide ‘#YouthRESIST alt-SONA’ on July 18 to counter Duterte’s ‘Fake News SONA’. Duterte and his ‘killing spree’ resulted to more than 12,000 homicide cases, including at least 7,000 deaths due to the war-on-drugs. Similar protests will be held in Cebu and General Santos.

At least 1,500 young people from Metro Manila is expected to attend the protest against the DUTERTADOR.

Photo-ops and interviews will be made available.
