A letter from a single mom to all foreign individuals, organizations and groups who criticize the Philippine government


A mom of two, Hedda Joy Tady Tan wrote a letter addressed to all foreign individuals, organizations and groups who criticize the Philippine government.




On her post, she asked, "Where were you when thousands were killed in the wake of Yolanda? Did you write an article as to PNoy and Mar Roxas' INEPTITUDE?"


She said that Roxas and PNoy failed to help the victims of typhoon Yolanda.

In her full Facebook post, Tan said,

"TO ALL FOREIGN INDIVIDUALS, ORGANIZATIONS, GROUPS WHO CRITICIZE MY GOVERNMENT.

1. Where were you when thousands were killed in the wake of Yolanda? Did you write an article as to PNoy and Mar Roxas' INEPTITUDE? They were the leaders RESPONSIBLE for making our people living along our shores UNDERSTAND what a STORM SURGE means. They FAILED thousands of our people then. Where was your outcry? Where were your placards? Where were your wonderful statements about our people's HUMAN RIGHT then - the right to information that saves lives?



Or perhaps, it was not in your interest then, to criticize our leaders? After all, we were just a group of insignificant islands then, incapable of self-rule, so you didn't really expect much from those two?

Which is it?

2. Where ARE YOU NOW, while children in Tondo work in charcoal factories to augment their parents' livelihood? Where are you while hundreds (maybe thousands) of families eat "pagpag" in Payatas? That's food scraps from trash!

This administration has the Duterte kitchen in place in one year's time into the presidency, and we work and support the government's projects and policies towards "a comfortable life for all".



Senators Aquino, Hontiveros, Trillanes, Pangilinan, journalists who criticize the government, celebrities who tweet non-support to the government ARE MANILA-BASED. What have they done to HELP the urban poor in Manila? None? So did you have placards about that?



BBC's Sackur pointed this out to Tagle in an interview once : while the bishop talks about dogmas, the hungry and the cold were living in shanties a few kilometers where the CBCP's leaders lived comfortably while talking about poverty.

Change your placards from "Stop silencing dissent" to "LET'S FEED THE POOR". You could have donated the money for your flights to the Philippines, and your food and lodging, to charitable institutions in Tondo and Payatas.



It is the pro-government bloggers that the opposition spend money on to SILENCE!

3. Where were you when our civilians were hostaged and killed by the Mautes and Hapilon? When our young girls were raped by terrorists in Marawi, where was your OUTCRY? Why are you still silent?



You have a crisis in Europe, where terrorists from Syria are spilling over your civilized, wealthy states. Where your young men abandon their families and comfortable lives to fight in Syria or become agents of terrorism in your most idyllic of cities.

You can't even agree on what to do with the war in Syria or the refugees that cramp your lifestyles today.

STOP DIPPING YOUR WHITE FINGERs into our brown affairs. We have a right to self-govern!

RISE, PILIPINO!"
