Shadow of the Drug War:


The Philippines' drug war began in 2016 under President Rodrigo Duterte. It has led to the deaths of thousands of people, primarily from low-income communities. The policy has been criticized for its heavy-handed approach and for alleged human rights abuses by the police. The aftermath of the drug war has left behind a legacy of trauma and grief for the families of those killed and has also failed to address the root causes of drug addiction in the country.
