#BawalAngDroga Anti Drug Campaign

RINJ Responds to Duterte's Attack on Humanitarians with an Anti-Drug Campaign

Toronto, Canada - The RINJ Foundation says that after listening to the response of Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte to RINJ's criticisms of Duterte's systematic extralegal killings of drug users in the Philippines, a Campaign has been launched to encourage supported self-help drug withdrawal. RINJ says it is going to demonstrate the correct way to reduce illegal drug use: Educate people and help them withdraw.

#BawalAngDroga or Pres. Duterte kills you.

Justice Secretary and Head of National Police implicated in extrajudicial killings in the Philippines

Two of Duterte's key Cabinet members instrumental in Duterte's murder of the weak, the poor and the ill.

In a hard-talking public multi-lingual statement issued from its web site and aimed at drug users, RINJ says that there are many users of cheap drugs like the "Shabu" methamphetamine hydrochloride that is very popular among the poor, and marijuana, used by a cross section of the million drug users in the 105 million population Republic of the Philippines. Serious human rights abuses in the Philippines have drawn global attention.

"The Philippines does not have a serious "drug problem". Hard drug use in the Philippines is much lower than global averages according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). Two of the most used illegal drugs in the country are methamphetamine hydrochloride (shabu) and marijuana", says the statement.

Cocaine and other party drugs like ecstasy, hallucinogens such as LSD, and mood-altering narcotic and opioid pharmaceuticals are used by lawyers, judges, politicians and other professionals who can afford those higher priced illegal items, according to the statement.

RINJ is coming down hard on users of Shabu. "This 'Shabu' thing is a serious money pit first, then a death trap. It sucks up your family's money then kills you leaving them in your [mess]."

Philippines President Duterte himself is a self-confessed fentanyl (opioid) addict. (Opioids are a class of drugs that include the illegal drug heroin as well as powerful pain relievers available legally by prescription, such as oxycodone (OxyContin©), hydrocodone (Vicodin ©), codeine, morphine, fentanyl, and many others.)

In a telephone interview from the Philippines the Project Manager, Sharon Santiago said that RINJ has a crew working on a new video to get the message out to Filipinas that drug abuse is killing or maiming babies and small children.

Stop Using Drugs and Expose Duterte's power and control warlording

"The gunfire in the streets from the unskilled death squads shooting up drug users and enemies of the Malacanang (Duterte's Presidential Palace in Manila) is slaughtering mom's and children right left and center. Kids as young as four have been gunned down by the president's death squads as a message of some kind", says the medical practitioner.

"It is not just drug users but others who are unpopular like American ex-military men such as Danny Blaylock, a retired United States Naval officer, who was walking home in Barangay Casibong at 10:35 a.m. on Feb 5 when he was attacked and killed with a .45 by one of two motorcycle riding men," adds Santiago..

"In Oriental Mindoro two police friends of Dela Rosa, the head of police in the Philippines  who used to be Duterte's head of police in Davao City killed  Zenaida Luz, the Citizens Crime Watch regional chairperson."

The RINJ Statement offers very specific advice on how to stop using "Shabu", the drug cited most often by the leader of the Philippines Death squads, Rodrigo Duterte.

Santiago says that The RINJ Foundation's network of women in the Philippines should be very helpful in reducing drug dependencies. "Because the government is murdering these impoverished people, there is no help for them from the State. We have talked to people in the hospitals and they support Duterte's goal of killing these people and would turn them in. We are disgusted at say Baguio General hospital where we interviewed staff who stood beside a drug treatment building and said yes, those patients should be killed. As our statement says, it is some kind of Stockholm syndrome," the humanitarian worker added.

The RINJ statement describes in very specific detail the psychological manipulation of the Philippine public:
"Your government wants you to hate yourselves. You should, says Manila. You must strive to please your leaders. Many of you are so bad you need to be gunned down in the streets. Abusive mothers and fathers always create a "bad kid" and hold siblings responsible. It breeds fear and blame. It creates the Stockholm syndrome. You are in it."
