A RE­STRICTED GOOD­BYE

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette - - Covid-19 Pandemic -

De­tained left- wing ac­tivist Reina Mae Nasino, in hand­cuffs and wear­ing a pro­tec­tive suit to pre­vent the spread of the coron­avirus, looks at the cof­fin of her 3- month- old first­born, River, dur­ing fu­neral rites at a ceme­tery in the Philip­pines’ cap­i­tal city of Manila on Fri­day. Left- wing groups de­cried the treat­ment of the de­tained ac­tivist as bru­tal. Nasino was al­lowed by a Manila court to at­tend her baby’s burial, but was re­strained and sur­rounded by swarms of armed es­corts as she qui­etly wept.
