Militarizing DSWD

/ 05:10 AM November 29, 2018

We denounce the termination of Social Welfare Undersecretaries Malou Turalde, Hope Hervilla and Mae Fe Ancheta Templa “for their affiliation with leftist groups.”

The appointment of former brigadier general Rolly Bautista as Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) secretary will only legitimize the attacks on the vulnerable and further endanger marginalized people who seek services and refuge from the DSWD, a department that is civilian in nature.

This proves that the Duterte administration favors fascist military retirees over undersecretaries from people’s organizations.

Furthermore, it is not remote that these undersecretaries will be replaced by military retirees as well.
