Say NO to the Philippines' Two Billion Dollar Arms Deal
The Philippines is getting slammed by horrific typhoons tied to the extreme weather effects of climate chaos. What's needed is humanitarian aid. What they're getting instead is a two billion dollar arms deal to the repressive Duterte regime, courtesy of the US government.
This regime has a “shoot to kill” policy against quarantine violators, which is abused to target those deemed threatening to the state. Indigenous activists and environmental defenders have been murdered. Email or call your Representatives and Senators Wyden and Merkley to say this arms deal must be stopped and humanitarian aid is needed in response to the double hardships of COVID-19 and climate chaos.
