‘Have mercy on Marawi folk’
Martial law in Mindanao should never be extended. How does Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez know that if he agreed to the extension of martial law for another five years, something good would happen? How can he say, “Extend martial law for the duration of President Duterte’s term”?
Alvarez wants martial law for his own benefit. Wow! Doesn’t he see that the people are suffering too much? They are living very uncomfortable lives, and children are dying.
Please stop this and rebuild Marawi. You should do something other than extending martial law and continuing to destroy the city. Have mercy on the people of Marawi. Please. Pray that God will give you all the wisdom and direction that you need.
