The Manila Police District violently dispersed indigenous peoples protesters this morning after its deputy director Marcelino Pedrozo ordered his troops to arrest and “fight back,” lest they lose face with the US Embassy.
This video shows an MPD vehicle ramming and running over at least ten protesters.
Several police officers also brandished guns in violation of procedures.
They also refused to let several injured victims to be taken to the hospital.
