The Philippine National Police on Wednesday slammed the “digital vandalism” made by a group of artists and cultural workers on the walls of Camp Crame in commemoration of the 34th anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution.
“Although the vandals did not leave any visible mark, the fact that the attack targeted a national historic site on the same day that the country commemorates the anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution makes it totally deplorable,” PNP spokesperson Brig. Gen. Bernard Banac said in a statement sent to reporters.
While stressing that PNP respects freedom of expression, Banac said this right has its limits and should “not step beyond national interest.”
On Tuesday night, the Concerned Artists of the Philippines used projectors to display a wanted poster showing President Rodrigo Duterte’s face at the walls of the PNP headquarters compound.
Camp Crame is considered as a national historic site where events which led to the peaceful revolution unfolded in 1986.
It also served as one of the rallying points of protesters during the revolution.
