Statement of Akbayan Senator Risa Hontiveros on President Duterte's 2nd SONA

It's akin to a bad open mic performance. Same old material. Bloody war on drugs, Martial Law, death penalty and wanton disregard for democracy and human rights.

All sound and fury. Lacking in achievements for the bold promises he made.

Whatever good the President said on his state of the nation address (SONA) was lost due to the sheer weight of his disdain for democratic governance.
