Vice Presidential spokesman Barry Gutierrez (OVP)Robredo’s spokesman Barry Gutierrez did not mince words against these people as he condemned their actions as a form of repression against Filipinos’ right to express their support for a candidate.This came as reports reached the Office of the Vice President (OVP) about the removal of tarpaulins, posters, and other materials that express support for Robredo.

”Isa itong paglabag sa karapatan ng lahat ng Pilipino na malayang ipahayag ang suporta nila sa isang kandidato at hindi dapat ginagawa ninuman, lalo na sa isang demokratikong bansa tulad ng Pilipinas (This is violation of the right of all Filipinos to freely express their support for a candidate and nobody should do this, especially in a democratic country like the Philippines),” Gutierrez said in a statement.

Supporters of Robredo in Zamboanga City reached out to the OVP and said that their materials were taken down from Dec. 1 to Dec. 2, including those posted on private properties.“Sa mga gumagawa nito, ganito na ba talaga sila katakot, na pati posters ni VP Leni na kinabit ng ating mga volunteers kailangang tanggalin (To those doing this, are they this afraid that they have to remove even posters of VP Leni hanged by our volunteers)?,” the spokesman asked. headtopics.com

Gutierrez echoed their sentiments, saying that the materials taken down were made and paid for by volunteers of Robredo as part of their people’s campaign.READ:Robredo collects campaign materials designed and distributed by supporters“Ipinapaalam namin na ang mga ito ay gawa ng mga volunteer at binayaran galing sa sarili nilang bulsa bilang bahagi ng (We are reminding everyone that these are made by volunteers and paid for from their own pockets as part of their) people’s campaign,” he said.

“But we shall be watching on how all these will be applied for the other candidates fair and square,” the page wrote.“If indeed this country remains a cradle of democracy, and Zamboanga City a staunch pillar of such, having our very own Mayor Cesar C Climaco an epitome of fighting for freedom, then why will our pink ribbons pose a threat to the arrival of the President?,” it asked. headtopics.com
