  1. And still people wanted Duterte’s daughter to run for president in 2022. If she wins, incompetence and violence will prolong.

  2. Vice interviewed the NPA which propagating lies against the government in fact they are the one that killed the lumads, Wait that congressman Cullamat is declared persona non grata by her own people Lumads after her Terrorist NPA daughter got killed by government forces

  3. as a filipino and also an activist, thank you for showing what’s really going on in our country.

  4. Im A Filipino, And I Support The Anti Terror Law, Because I Believe That is the way to Protect the Safety and Interest Of The Filipino People.
    They Used Lumads as Human Shields. So That The anti terror law will be bad for the eyes of the people, They’re Afraid of the law because many of FrontParties In Congress has Connection In NPA.
    The lumads that you interview has been victims of fake information,
    Many Filipino’s Supported dutertes Martial In Mindanao because it is right. And Many People know that many Activist that rally in our streets are NPA or some is paid.

  5. Dear vice, those activists are brainwashed communist puppets. Don’t defend them.

  6. What a stupid documentary 😂 we the filipinos are even happy with what we have here , we are enjoying it , we are enjoying the safety , knowing that streets are safer now unlike before , we are enjoying the long term solution to fight terrorist

    You can not say that you are silenced , when in fact you can go out there and held a protest without any problem as long as you follow health protocols

  7. I know this one Filipino guy and his best friends in the Philippines were murdered by cops and planted .38 revolvers in their hands.

  8. Some activist in the Philippines have connections with the local communist terrorist group.

  9. I’m not shocked by the fact that a lot of people are giving hate to this video.

  10. These guys are terrorist supporters, they hijack elementary schools of indegeneous people in provinces change curriculum to be against the government, being an environmentalists are just facade by the npa

  11. All activist is under the comand of CPP NPA NDF founded by a Big Polotician to manuapolite the por people living in the barangay area.You dont know what eal happended on the time that Aquinos start in government.Ninoy Aquino is the one Who help CPP NPA.When Pres.Duterte is on Power the conpiracy of Aquino and LP is reveal to the eye of Filipino.All this guys you interview is paid by LP and liars.Vice you dont know what is the true.Dont Judge the Filipino also Duterte.because Duterte is the only Philippines President that reveal who is the real terrorist in Philippine.Do you know where the school of the Culliamat children study and the all member of Activist Leader in the Philippines?All the leader of activist children specially the MAKABAYAN BLOC is Study in Europe and the money is from the extortion money of CPP NPA NDF who founded to all activist.

  12. How come vice news from US was able to access interview on communist groups in Philippines? Are US supposed to be anti-communist country? How then they were able to know the location of Philippine communist hiding places? Is democratic is just a joke? Or is democratic is as the same as communism system?

  13. What’s bad is that the vocal majority in our country are those who support Duterte…

  14. On the bright side, it’s an effective method of population control. They do have a serious over population situation right now…

  15. It’ is all fault the lumads were really been brainwashed to their leaders and the congress whose are backing them
