On May 13, 2019, the fate of our country will again be rewritten as a new set of senators will take power. It is important that we elect candidates who value and protect lives, defend and uphold human rights, and are leaders who value integrity, honesty, and have a heart for progressive advocacies.

We, advocates from the youth, believe that Imee Marcos does not qualify as one who deserves to be in power. During the campaign period, she habitually lied (and continues to lie) about her credentials. She has a blatant disregard for human rights and lives, and allegedly stole sin tax funds which were supposed to be for the benefit of tobacco farmers. Most importantly, she ludicrously told people to “move on” from the Martial Law period, where her family monopolized power through her father's dictatorship.

While Imee prides herself as #ImeeSolusyon, we say SHE IS NOT. Never again should we vote for leaders who have a history of human rights violations, corruption, and false credentials, among others. Never again should we elect another Marcos into power. The youth remembers. The youth will never forget.

#NeverAgain
#NeverForget
#ZeroVotesForImeeMarcos
