On IBM's support of Philippines' president Duterte's «war on drugs»

On June 27, 2012, three years after the devastating Human Rights Watch report, IBM issued a short news release announcing an agreement with Davao to upgrade its police command center in order to “further enhance public safety operations in the city.

The police command center, Sara Duterte told the Durian Post, “is now infused with IBM’s IOC technology,” allowing police to “shift from responding to critical events to anticipating and preventing them.”

Amado Picardal, a former spokesperson of the Coalition Against Summary Executions, a Davao-based human rights group, called IBM’s work “unethical,” given that some of the killings had been linked to Duterte’s police in the years before its deal with Davao City.

The billionaires running for Pres. in the US are symptoms of #latestagecapitalism

It's like the "move over, X (e.g. Obama), we'll take over from here"

This direct control or power grab is a step further than 'young' phony intermediaries like #macron or #Trudeau

Watch this comparably short documentary to hear about those people.
