QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Quezon City Bureau) – The protection of human rights must know no political color and it is everyone’s role to stand up against all forms of human rights abuses, Vice President Ma. Leonor “Leni” Robredo said on Sunday.
The Adobo Chronicles caught up with Robredo on a bus en route to Naga City, and we asked her to elaborate on her statement.
”Human rights protection in our country has come under attack lately, especially from the pro-administration and anti-church factions. They have even used the Dengue vaccine program mess to criticize human rights advocates.”
”Let be known that human rights knows no color other than yellow. Kaming mga dilawan ang tunay na nagmamalasakit sa katarungang pantao ng mga Pilipino.” (We, the yellows are the true vanguards of the human rights of the Filipinos.)
Well, at least, the VP is not afraid to show her true color.
