ILOILO City – Instead of gathering to hold protest actions, the Police Regional Office (PRO) 6 urged protesters to air their grievances for President Rodrigo Duterte’s fifth State of the Nation Address (SONA) online. Gorero said that PRO-6 will activate task group “SONA 2020” in coordination with other concerned government agencies. Police Colonel Gilbert Gorero, PRO-6 spokesperson, made the appeal as he noted the existing guidelines of the government’s coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) task force limiting mass gatherings amid the pandemic.
