Death of a Nation
Thousands of people were killed in the Philippines due to Duterte’s bloody war on drugs. They were murdered inside their homes, in the street, in dark alleyways while some were abducted and later found dead, dumped on the side of the road with their faces covered in masking tape, all for the world to see.
