Edu Manzano’s son, Enzo Manzano, shared on social media his reaction to the allegation that the Philippine government is trying to silence its critics through different means.
KAMI learned that Enzo protested alone outside the United Nations headquarters in New York to raise awareness about the said allegation.
In his Facebook post, he expressed his sorrow over the alleged oppression that Filipinos are experiencing under President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration.
“Today, I chose to stand outside the United Nations HQ for 3 hours (I have a recorded live video, on my timeline, showing the second half). It took me three days to decide I was actually going to do this. How did I arrive at this decision? I realized lengthy Facebook posts don’t do the trick... ALSO
“It only makes me more angry whenever news of our government comes out in the Philippines. The feeling of being useless doesn’t help either - whether it’s because I’m in New York or the government keeps coming up with ways to silence us back home.
“I was never the type to protest but at this point with all that the Philippine government is doing, it’s either you’re fighting to keep your country alive or not.
“Sucks to hear that my fellow Filipinos can’t protest back home.. I hope my lone protest can make up for that. At least a little bit,” Enzo posted on Facebook.

In another Facebook post, Enzo revealed that he protested for a second day but in front of the Consulate General of the Philippines this time.
“Second day of protesting. This time, it was in front of the Consulate General of the Philippines.
“Thank you for all the kind words! I've already mentioned this before and I am grateful for all the support too, but this isn't just for me. I am doing this for each and every one of you. It hurts to be away from our country and to see this happen. Things have dramatically changed since I've left and it's only been 2 1/2 years so far.
“I can't stand the thought of what our home is turning into. There are multiple efforts to silence and scare you, but I hope we can make my protests loud enough for the world to see and hear,” Enzo wrote.
KAMI previously reported that Edu’s son, Luis Manzano, opened up about the controversial anti-terrorism bill.
