The placard of a Filipino murder victim and “tsinelas,” Filipino for “flip-flops,” are seen during a human rights demonstration near the U.S. Capitol in Washington Nov. 18, 2021. Activists displayed 3,000 pairs of flip-flops in calling on Congress to pass the Philippines Human Rights Act in response to President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs directive, which has led to the murder of more than 30,000 Filipinos since 2016.
