Progressive groups offer alternatives to Duterte’s war on drugs

This is the first time that BAYAN secretary general Renato Reyes met with drug users.

Reyes told the packed crowd at the office of the Vancouver Area Network of Drug Users, or Vandu, that he was stunned that they can call themselves drug users, whereas in the Philippines, this admission is enough to get them killed.

During his talk, Reyes showed the crowd a video of the victims of the drug war, one of those in attendance is Canada’s member of parliament Jenny Kwan, who expressed concern on the number of lives lost in the Philippines’ drug war.
