KAWIT, Cavite – Protesters briefly disrupted the Independence Day program here as President Rodrigo Duterte was about to start his speech.

Ten members of the militant group Bayan Southern Tagalog shouted “Hunyo a-dose, Huwad na kalayaan, Duterte, traydor Duterte, patalsikin.”
Police immediately nabbed the protesters.

The President told the police “to just deal with them peacefully and with maximum tolerance.”

“Hayaan mo lang. It’s freedom of speech. You can have it. I will understand,” he said.

Duterte, who was about to start his speech, said what the protesters did was part of “freedom of speech.”
