After getting a death threat, Quezon City Rep. Alfred Vargas and his brother Councilor PM Vargas received a show of support from Novaliches residents

A group of young Novoleños visited Alfred to express their solidarity with him and his brother.

“Nabalitaan daw nilang may natanggap na death threat ang Congressman nila mula sa mga sindikato at gusto nilang magpakita ng suporta para maprotektahan ang Distrito,” he said on Facebook.

They gave him a shirt with the phrase #protectPM.

PM is running for Quezon City congressman, while Alfred is running for councilor.

Alfred assured their supporters that he and his brother would continue the fight.

“Dahil sa tapang ninyo, itutuloy natin ang laban hanggang sa tagumpay. Poprotektahan natin ang ating mahal na buhay, ang Novaliches, at ang nag-iisang karapat-dapat na susunod na Congressman ng QC District V – si Cong. PM Vargas,” he said.

He also thanked them for speaking up for him and his brother.

“The future of Novaliches is bright with brave young people like you. Thank you for the courage. Mabuhay kayo!” he said.
