Here’s a video of photos taken during and after the Rizal land dispute tragedy. It is sad, shocking, and not safe for the weak of heart. For us, the saddest portion of the video would be that picture of a handcuffed old man who was, from the looks of it, attempting to eat (or was he attempting to drink?).
PKalinga, the one who uploaded the video, asks some questions which we would like to echo here, “Is this the price of being poor? Or is it the price of lawlessness?”
Or could it be the price of both? We are working on a historical overview of this tragedy which we hope to upload in the coming days.
UPDATE: Be sure you check out the Voice of Kalinga which is regularly covering this tragedy. Thanks Katy.
