Off the list


(On going story)

At the beginning of Duterte's war on drugs, he asked local government officials to make a list.

The list contained names of alleged drug users and pushers in every city, every town, and every village in the country. A few weeks after Duterte sat in power, some men and women on the list started getting killed. Some of them were killed by police in drug operations, many of them were killed by unknown gunmen riding in motorcycles. Within two years, thousands of names have been killed.

These are the ones left in it. This is their attempt to get out of it.
