There is now an ongoing move by supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte to have me banned on Facebook.
This was after I wrote what President Rodrigo Duterte said about taking Fentanyl, the strong painkiller that caused the death of the musical genius Prince after an accidental overdose.
My story explaining the action of the drug Fentanyl has since been corroborated by a medical doctor. You can watch him by clicking here.
Someone so very kindly alerted me to this “Cyber Tokhang” directed against my Community Page.
Those behind it claimed my post was “libelous” even though it was directly quoting what Duterte himself told investors during his meeting with them.
You can see the original “Cyber Tokhang” post encouraging people to report my Community page to Facebook on this page – https://www.facebook.com/d30cw2/
All I can say is that the democratic space is now in danger of getting smaller and smaller. Either his supporters will try to silence the media with their bashing or with their banning.
Good luck, democracy, in 2017.
