Catriona Gray took to social media to give her two cents on the arrest of at least 20 LGBT members at the Pride March in Mendiola, Manila, on Friday, June 26.
On her Facebook and Instagram accounts, the beauty queen questioned the authorities who nabbed the protesters who observed physical distancing and other health protocols.
Here is the Miss Universe 2018 titleholder’s full post:
“Is this the new normal? Earlier today a peaceful #PRIDE rally held in Manila where mask wearing participants practicing social distancing were met by police in riot gear and arrested. When questioned by the witnesses and media about the reason or violations for arrest, the police gave no response.”
“If proper health guidelines were being followed, (social distancing, mask wearing) why the use of force? Why the withholding of rights (witnesses said they were not read their miranda rights before arrest nor given reason of arrest)? Videos circulating online confirm this.”
“We have the right to raise our voice. Pride, since the beginning has been a protest. Now is the time to speak up. #FREEPRIDE20 #PRIDE2020.”
In a previous report by KAMI, Catriona Gray has joined the call to junk the controversial anti-terrorism bill. The Miss Universe 2018 said she has taken the time to research and digest information before drawing her own conclusions.
