These men will do what it takes to stay in power.

Former Akbayan Party-list Rep. Tom Villarin marked the anniversary of Ferdinand Marcos’ declaration of military rule this September with a stern warning for Filipinos.

The ex-politiko drew parallels to show how twisted President Rodrigo Duterte is, much like how the late dictator had been hungry for power.

“Marcos gave up our sovereignty to the IMF-WB for loans, SAPs and aid for US military bases. Duterte gave up WPS (West Philippine Sea) for Chinese aid, loans, casinos, & election manipulation,” Villarin said. “Dictators sell their country for longevity in power. Never again, never forget!”

Is history repeating itself?
