Catholics protest

-

MANILA: About 1000 Catholics in the Philippine­s marched in Manila yesterday to protest against President Rodrigo Duterte’s bloody war on drugs and efforts to reinstate the death penalty.

The protests come a day after students and provincial universiti­es held demonstrat­ions against Duterte, and a day before the 32nd anniversar­y of the “People Power” revolution that drove Ferdinand Marcos into exile.

Catholic devotees prayed and sang hymns as the Philippine­s’ cardinal read sermons against what they said were not “pro-life” policies.
