‘Think twice’ before holding protests this June 12 bec. of COVID-19 - Eleazar




The different group opposing the Anti-Terrorism bill is planning a massive protest this upcoming Independence Day this amidst the big health risks involved by the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19 pandemic.
Police Lt. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar, chief of Joint Task Force COVID Shield in an exclusive interview with CNN Philippines was asked about the possible breach of quarantine protocols for the upcoming Independence Day rallies this coming June 12 and he said:


“First, we would like to advise those who will hold rallies to think twice. Since we have a pandemic and our problem there is that they might be included in the statistics of infection.”

The high ranking police officer said the protesters can still air their grievances and complaints in the different online platforms currently available where the required quarantine protocols such as social distancing will not be a big issue.

Nevertheless, Eleazar said the Philippine National Police (PNP) would still be observing “maximum tolerance” for the groups who would proceed wit their planned protest this coming June 12.
“Just in case, they will gather, they will be approached by the police to appeal to them to disperse. Maximum tolerance is always there but if they would insist and resist and disobey us, that’s a different story,” he said.
