Updated 2:51 PM, April 01, 2020ARRESTED. Men part of the protest are arrested by Quezon City cops. Sourced photoMANILA, Philippines – Around 20 Quezon City residents were arrested by cops from the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) on Wednesday, April 1, after staging a protest to demand help amid the
government’s lockdownthat attempts to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus but has disenfranchised millions of Filipinos.According to an initial report from the QCPD, cops apprehended around 14 men and 6 women along EDSA Kilyawan in Barangay Bagong Pagasa, Quezon City for protesting without a permit.
Most, if not all, of the residents lived in Sitio San Roque, a community mostly populated by low-wage earners like factory and construction workers, who could not work amid the lockdown.So far, there are conflicting accounts as to whether the protest was organized or spontaneous.
In an interview sent to Rappler by the Save San Roque Alliance, Bernadeth Caboboy, one of the San Roque residents on the scene during the confrontation, said that they came to the area after they received information that help would be given out to them in connection with the lockdown.
And then the cops came, she said.“Dumating yung mga naka-uniporme, pinagpapalo ang mga lalake…Wala silang awa(The men in uniform arrived. They hit the men. They have no pity),” Caboboy said.One of the arrested men was Caboboy’s partner Ereberth Galagate, a construction worker who has not even received his 13th month pay for 2019.
The arrests were condemned by labor groupBukluran ng Manggagawang Pilipino(BMP).“Fact is, these households already belonged to the poor and near-poor economic brackets even before the COVID-19 outbreak; the administration of President Duterte should have placed these communities on the top of their priorities and should [have] heavily considered their plight when they decided to implement the ECQ,” the BMP said.
It added: “To arrest hungry and desperate people is a new low for this administration. Not only did they dilly-dally in addressing the crisis in late February, [but] the government treated the health crisis as a peace and order issue and deployed security forces instead of medical practitioners.”
Rappler has sought the comment of the Quezon City Police District on the accounts of San Roque residents, but they have yet to reply.The arrests come as the government still struggles to enforce a lockdown or"" to keep people inside amid the outbreak of the highly infectious coronavirus disease (COVID-19), but many have pointed out that the lockdown can only be effective if the government delivers social relief for disenfranchised Filipinos.Read more: Rappler »
Hindi nararamdaman ang presence ng QC Officials and Mayor ... Those people are enraged due to hunger. Hoping their mayor could help. Clearly it’s a human rights violation. Huy, puro kayo pulitika. Puro kayo huli. Maging tao naman kayo! 🤬 officialqcmayor DILGPhilippines Ano ginagawa kasi ng mayor nyo dyn? Wala pa rin ba? Maliban of course dun sa p2500 (kuno) na pinabigay nyng tulong.

Nice one. kc purk kayo lock wala nman kayong pakain puro kayo arte dami ng mamamatay sa gutom Good job pnp! 🤮🤮🤮 check their backgrounds and affiliations. it would reveal the legitimacy of their actions.
Nagugutom ang mga tao asan kasi ang mga binoto ninyo! This pandemic is a wake up call to each one of us. Vote wisely! Eto na. Nag uumpisa na.. gutom na mga tao. Wag niyo sila sisihin. Sisihin ng gobyerno kabagalan nila. Matigas ulo ninyo. Ikulong mga yan liadcruz Asan na side ng sundalo? Mayor baka naman puede nyo puntahan maawa ka naman 😡
not PUIs and PUMs yan ah na hihingi lang ng tulong pero yung positive na namasyal pa, compassion ang binigay! kawawang mamamayan. Nakakaawang nakakabuwisit din yang mga yan. Lahat ng tao ngayon ay nagtitiis at nagtitimpi. Yun mga mga health workers kadalasan wala na sa oras ang kain o di na makakain sa hirap ng trabaho. Kaunting disiplina. Buong mundo ang may sakit ngayon. HINDI LANG TAYO.
Walang mga awa. Yan ba ang trato nio sa mahihirap mga Tuta ni Digong? Titigas kasi ulo. Bwesit. Nakakaawa sila kaso nakakainis din kasi walang disiplina. Sana kasi na-implement na ng maayos yun ID system para ang distribution ay per families na lang. Para mas organized at hindi need mag rally 😞 When all you have is a hammer everything is a nail...
“ My brother is not a pig!!!!!” sisaisagani Walang puso ang nagpa aresto jan sisaisagani Compassion po officialqcmayor baka naman pwede mo sila abutan ng tulong since kapwa Pilipino natin sila at higit sa lahat, tao sila. Sabi nga ng SNICKERS you’re not ‘YOU’ when you’re hungry! ✌🏽 Efforts and aid might increase soon, but at these people's expense. Nakakagalit na ganito. Kailangan may protesta, kailangan may sakitan, kailangan may mamatay na health worker bago magkaroon ng agarang solusyon.
Utos talaga yan ni mayora! 😤 Ganito kami sa QC. 😡😡
