BAGUIO CITY — Sa magkahiwalay na pahayag, sinabi ng mga tagapagsalita ng Kabataang Makabayan-Ilocos at Lejo Cawilan Command (LCC) ng New People’s Army- Kalinga na pawang kasinungalingan ang tinuran ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte sa kanyang nakaraang State of the Nation Address (SONA). Ayun sa kanila, wala umanong makabuluhang pagbabago sa loob ng dalawang taong pamumuno nito.
July 23 is expectedly a red letter date with coordinated people’s actions in different parts of the country during the third state of the nation address of the president (I refuse to print the name. It is akin to he-who-must-not-be-named in the Harry Potter series of books and movies). In Baguio City, Tongtongan ti Umili will organise a forum followed by a people’s march—it is a public activity and everyone is invited.
